WASHINGTON (AP) — Apollo Global Management has agreed to purchase ClubCorp, which owns more than 200 golf and country clubs, for $1.1 billion.

Apollo, a private equity firm, said Sunday that it would pay $17.12 per share in cash, a 30.7-percent premium over the company’s closing share price Friday.

Dallas-based ClubCorp was founded in 1957 and operates in 28 states, Washington, D.C., China and Mexico. It also owns sports and business clubs, with a combined total of 430,000 members.

The deal is expected to close by the final three months of the year. The company also declared it would pay a special dividend of 13 cents a share to shareholders on July 28.

In North Texas, ClubCorp owns several properties, including the Shady Valley club in Arlington and the Walnut Creek club in Mansfield.
