Excellent job done on green keeping! Beautiful course, pretty difficult as well, wide fairways help out but the greens will have you begging for mercy....

The course was a little wet when we played. A lot of shot placement holes with little forgiveness . All and all it’s a well constructed, beautiful course.

Golf Trip

The second hole (I believe) is a doozy with a elevated tee box and very narrow landing area... The course was good, not great. We had heard this was supposed to be the best of all the bells Vista courses but we actually liked the one we played the second day better... Was in good shape though and a fun layout. The clubhouse felt very old and outdated. Would definitely come back though.... It's only a couple hours up the road.

Course still dormat

The course has a great layout, tight fairways so being in the short grass is a must. Greens were really slow due to recent aerification. Overall very pleased with the course and the staff I will definitely be playing here again later in the year.

Very Nice Golf Course

I was a perfect day in November with temperatures in the 60's and the course was fun. There were many fallen leaves in the rough but the fairways and a short distance off the fairways were pretty clear. The greens were in very good condition and the staff was great.
The pace of play was very good because not many were playing until we got to the last four holes. We had a threesome that slowed us down with one always loosing his ball in the leaves.
I would recommend this course and would love to play it again when I come back to Arkansas.

Gorgeous course

I really liked this course! Very scenic and in great shape even in the fall. Doing a nice job of keeping the falling leaves in check. Not as long and hard as I was expecting knowing it was a very hilly course.

Great greens

The course was in outstanding condition in the middle of summer. The greens are the best I’ve played in NWA. Staff super friendly and a fun track.

Highlands

Really liked the course - front nine is a little tighter off the tee, but the back is great - loved it! Course has gentle rolling terrain and no severe elevation drops. Greens were overseeded and the rest of the course was dormant, but they ran true and the fairway lies were good. The bermuda rough was long in a few places, which tends to each your ball and make it hard to find unless you walk or drive right over it.

My only complaint is that when we arrived, my wife and I are were literally one of the first ones there. We had a tee time but were 1/2 hour early, but the starter made us wait until a twosome with a tee time just ahead of us arrived and teed off before he would let us, obviously perceiving ALL woman golfers to be slow. We stayed right on behind them and played in 3 hours, often waiting for them for short periods on the greens.

Would recommend this course if you are in the area and want a nice place to play with both challenging and fun holes.
