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.

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.

Fairways are relatively narrow, which is common for a mountain course. The course was in good condition although the greens had been recently aerated. Due to COVID-19 restrictions the clubhouse was not open.; however, staff came outside to meet us. We enjoyed our round and would recommend this course to others. It was an excellent value with the Hot Deal.

Neighborhood course layout

My wife and I have played here before when we are in Eureka Springs. It’s a short course even from the tips. I used less than driver on about 40 percent of the par 4/5 holes. It’s narrow and sometimes slopes, so straight is better than long here. Smallish type greens that are often raised requires a decent short game. Overall, fun layout. Great gas golf carts. Very comfortable. No gps or coolers. Club house, grill and pro shop is closed to entering due to COVID restrictions. The driving range was closed and grill is outside only. So you had to stand outside until some one came out to take your money etc... we had our own cooler and bought drinks and they filled it with ice. Greens were in great shape.
