The King himself, Arnold Palmer, made a large impact on the Las Vegas Golf Region, both during his playing days and as a course designer. Now, Arnold Palmer Golf Management, one of the fastest growing golf course management companies, is about to make a mark within the Las Vegas Golf Region. The business has taken over operations of Las Vegas golf courses Rhodes Ranch and Tuscany, bringing new spirit and ideas to the region.

Arnold Palmer Golf Management (APGM) is led by a powerful group of executives, including Managing Partner/CEO Jim Hinckley, who is described as "the most experienced executive within the golf course management and ownership business having been involved within the ownership/management of over 350 golf courses." Hinckley started his career with ClubCorp as a bag boy, and then learned directly from ClubCorp Founder Robert Dedman, a true legend in the golf course management company. Other partners of APGM are Greg Adair, a real estate and investment banking expert; Ken Story, the private club operations expert; Larry Galloway, the public operations expert; and Doug Howe, a company development expert.

Tuscany and Rhodes Ranch Golf Club each are Ted Robinson-designed Las Vegas golf courses, and provide challenge while giving all Las Vegas golfers a chance to enjoy their round. The fairways are wide and the courses aren't desert layouts. The challenge of these courses comes with the greens and the par three holes on the courses. The late Robinson loved the par 3s at Rhodes Ranch.

The official announcement of the new management group is just weeks old, and plans are still being put in location, but according to Rhodes Ranch General Manager Tate Stull, the business wants and demands quality, and puts the customer initial. Among the action items are offering the highest quality Angus hamburgers and spending freely to maintain the highest quality putting greens at both Las Vegas golf courses. Also, a new membership club has been implemented, offering totally free afternoon golf, totally free beer along with other perks, all for just $29 per month for locals. Also, unique golf packages and other deals are being put in location for members of other APGM courses across the country.

The King won the Tournament of Champions in Las Vegas and also the PGA Tour's Sahara Invitational. He also created several golf courses within the area.
