Best Golf Courses in NorthWest Arkansas

I’ve been lucky enough to visit Northwest Arkansas and they have some of the best courses anywhere. Golf is one of those sports that can be played by two people at the same time, or it can be played by one person for a lifetime by themselves. Even if your fitness level isn’t where it should be, you can still enjoy a round of golf. You may choose to play by yourself, versus the house, or with your pals at any time that you want to. These are all options available to you.

The following is a list of the best golf courses with the highest golf course reviews in the surrounding area of Fayetteville, Arkansas, United States, including Stonebridge Meadows Golf Club, Bella Vista Country Club, Prairie Creek Country Club, and others.

Prairie Creek Club

This golf club is situated on one of the most well-regarded courses in the northwest Arkansas region, and it has 18 of the most challenging holes in golf that can be found anywhere in the world. This golf club first welcomed members of the general public for the first time in 1968 and now has a par of 72. On the fairways, Bermuda grass predominates, and as it reaches the greens, it gives place to bent grass in a seamless transition. It is difficult to get up and down for par around the bulk of the greens since they are flanked by massive slopes.

This challenging course was built by Joe Sanders and is carved through the beautiful Ozark Mountains. Golfers who have long, precise drives and are proficient putters will have the best chance of finding success on this course. The first nine holes are played on a hilltop, while the second nine are played in a valley, where the wind is usually always blowing straight into your face. The inherent difficulty of the course is attested to by its slope as well as its USGA rating, despite the fact that it is not the longest course that is offered.
