Our Golf Course
The Country Club of Arkansas golf course is consistently listed among the finest courses in central Arkansas. The course was built by golfers. With numerous sand bunkers, water on eleven holes, sparkling lakes and streams, and fairways graced by Loblolly pines, the Country Club of Arkansas captures the majestic beauty of central Arkansas. While the course was designed to appeal to golfers of all levels, it also offers a variety of challenging holes certain to appeal to the most discriminating of championship caliber golfers.
The Country Club of Arkansas golf course was built in 1995-1996 by LinksCorp, LLC, a Chicago-based golf course company and opened for play as a Semi-Private course in 1997. Shortly after opening the course was considered the finest course in central Arkansas that was available to the public.
In 2002 the course was purchased from LinksCorp by a group of Little Rock golfers including Tim Jenkins (PGA Golf Professional), Chris Jenkins (3-time A.S.G.A. Player of the Year), Dr. Robert Young, and Dr. Ronald Hughes. The four owners decided to continue to operate the course as semi-private, offering moderate daily fee prices and an excellent, affordable membership program.
In 2005 the owners converted the problem-prone Tif Dwaft Bermuda greens to state-of-the-art Tifeagle Bermuda. Since that conversion the course has gradually reclaimed its former position as the finest public-accessible course in central Arkansas.
Today the course boasts a strong membership roster, an excellent following of daily fee players, and has also become the premier Outing course in Arkansas.
Fairways and Greens
The Country Club of Arkansas offers consistently excellent playing conditions throughout the year.
Covered with a velvet-like blanket of smooth, green, Tifeagle Bermuda, and designed to be one of the course’s primary defenses against low scores, the designer went all-out to create 18 challenging greens.
Fairways & Tees
Our fairways and tees are comprised of manicured 419 Bermuda. Know as a warm season grass, 419 Bermuda provides a rich and plush playing environment during the warm months, and offers a clean dormant look during the deepest winter months. The fairways at The Country Club of Arkansas are consistently some of the finest in the south.
