Course was tough, hilly, and well kept. Played with my wife and paired with a local very nice retired couple. They gave us tips around the course and spoke well of the year around golf at the 9 Hot Sprigs Village courses. They drove their cart home.

Most every course played this summer in the village has shown excellent care, friendly staff and a fun golfing experience. Most rounds have had a heavy turnout to play that day making the time of play almost always 4 hrs. Sometimes others get in a hurry when there is no possibility of speeding up play or playing thru unfortunately but this can happen anywhere. Will return to play over and over.

Really fun golf course with a variety of different holes. The elevation changes create some interesting shots as well. My only complaint would be the lack of yardages available on sprinkler heads scattered around the course.

I've golfed 2 of the Hot Springs Village courses. Isabella and now Ponce de Leon. Both were very enjoyable courses. Isabella was in July of last year and was in great condition. It's an open course and a lot of fun. Ponce was in early May this year and was not in as good condition but understandable as it is still a little early in season. Grass is coming in and there are some wet spots. Bunkers are a little rough but reflects the spring rain and weather. In all, very nice at this time of year. Compared to Isabella, Ponce has some tighter holes. It's open ones generally are long and when the wind is blowing (it was the day I played), the wind can swirl, be hard to gauge and, when you are into it, can make holes very long.

Staff was very friendly. And, when I came in after 18 and asked about the cost of playing another 9 they just waved me out and said have a good time. Tops in terms of service and they bought a lot of loyalty from me. If you are nearby or have the chance to drive out from Little Rock, do it. It's worth renting a car in LR to do that.

Very fair course in great condition. Drives will have a fairly generous landing area but will find trouble if they are too far left or right. Very well bunkered course with just a few holes contending with water. Elevation changes require club adjustment. The greens run very true and are good speed. The only thing I noticed this year is the greens had more ball parks then previous years where they were perfect. Great lay-out and great course overall, you will enjoy. Weather in this area can be hot depending on time of year so play early.

I have played Ponce before but this time was part of a tournament hosted by the Golf Channel Amateur Tour. Staff was prepared for all the golfers and the course was very good condition considering all of the rain the area has had. Definitely recommend playing here.
