Course Reviews

Reopened in summer of 2015. Great improvement to greens since then. Rates are low and course is in decent condition, tee boxes are average. Tough course and the management is trying hard to get it in great condition.

This is a great golf course. 5 tees for all levels of ability. Great greens. Well kept fairways and roughs. Distances are well marked with stakes in the middle of the fairways that also provide excellent aiming points. This course also is very scenic. I heard and read about this not being a very good course. I found this to be very untrue and unfair to the course. I rated the the course a 4.5 out of 5 mostly because the is no drinking water on the course and some of the cart paths are a ways away from the greens and require quite a climb. If you want a great challenge play this course.

Views were outstanding, difficulty was high, well worth the trip

Great views of the Ozarks. Nice people. Great course for the money. Greens were slow in June 2009, but the course remains our favorite in NWA. Very challenging layout. Point-to-point golf. Not a hacker's course.

This place is a dump, I dont care how cheap it is. Greens were slow and the course was rough, I went there after reading the reviews posted on here, what a mistake! Go to some other course in the area.

This is a beautiful course with amazing views. The course is tough but playable. I would reccommend this course to anyone.

Great course. Exceptional value.

I'm a scratch golfer and I'm here to tell you this place is one of the toughest golf courses I've ever played. It will get you from all angles. Some holes are really long (#9 and #10 are both 490+ with no elevation change). Most of the shorter holes are really tight either off the tee or on the approach. When I say tight, I mean lost ball tight. You can't punch one out of the woods this course is cut out of. Think rain forest. The par 3s are either long or have crazy tiered greens. This place is a serious challenge that I would highly recommend. It was in fairly good condition when I played and it will demand every golf skill to be successful. You will have to be long off the tee at times, pinpoint accurate at times, putting lights out and have your course management on point to master this beast. I barely kept it in the 70s here and I haven't put up a score in the 80s in over 6 years. A must play in NW Arkansas.

I am a 1.5 handicapper and I shot 85. This is by far the toughest test of golf in Arkansas, but it was worth the 3 and a half hour drive play. If you are a golfer do yourself a favor and plan a trip

Leave the driver at home. Course management is a must.

Not a duffers course

One of the most difficult courses in NWA. Great golf for the money. Club house needs additional space especially indoors grill and seating to cool off. Could be one of the best around with additional amenities.

Hard for a duffer

This course is pretty challenging for the novice golfer, better come ready play!
