Great day of golf

Couldn't have asked for friendlier service from staff. Never had to wait on a single hole. Entire course in great condition. Greens ran true and all about the same pace. Didn't seem to very at all.

The course was in very rough shape from the tee box to the green. Greens were in good shape. Many of the tee boxes looked like the rough and the fairways were very patchy dirt to weeds and dandelions.

Holiday Island Review

The pace of play was not good considering the few numbers on the course. Fairways were in rough shape. Greens were very good.

Nice course. We golfed twice this week a little early. Fairways not green yet but was still fun to play nice greens. Some very challenging holes. Had a great time

Thank you

Lots of positives

Saw this course while heading to Eureka Springs for the day and decided to play it. Overall the course is a well-maintained, challenging track with small, firm greens that provide a good test once you get on the putting surface. Pace of play for a mid-week round was excellent and the staff was friendly. But I have to admit the thing I will remember most about this course isn’t on the course at all …it’s the driving range! Whoever built this unique range is either a genius or totally mad! Just getting to the hitting area requires nerves of steel going down a narrow path (only partially paved) while listening to the golf cart brakes squeal the whole time. Once you’re there though I have to admit it was a hoot hitting short iron shots with 8 second hang times before seeing the ball drop into a creek and stratified mountainside far below. And going up the path? Well you can imagine what it was like but we made it. One other thing about the course, my female playing partner was a little upset the ladies’ tees were just struck randomly in the fairway, we’re uneven and were not mowed. Also the course has no bathrooms on either nine, so definitely stop at the clubhouse on the turn!

Could be really good

The course has a nice layout and some great views of the Ozarks, but tees are in bad shape and there is not much definition between fairways and rough. Greens were good, most are elevated. But areas leading to greens are not good. If some money was put into it, it could be a really nice course.

The front nine was comparatively easy, but the back nine was a solid test of golf; in face much tougher than I expected.

Nice course

We enjoyed our time. Tees, fairways, rough and greens all in great condition. I couldn't give the courses amenities a realistic rating as the pro shop was locked down due to COVID and we were the only people on the course as it was a bit chilly. This isn't resort quality like some in Branson but for a semi-private course we found it well maintained. Carts were in great condition as well. I would play again if in or near Eureka Springs. An excellent value for the price.
