Prairie Creek Country Club - Northwest Arkansas favorite golf course

Long one of northwest Arkansas's favorite layouts, Prairie Creek Country Club offers 18 of the most challenging holes of golf that you can find.  It is located just outside the city limits of Rogers, Arkansas near Beaver Lake and Oak Ridge Estates.

 

Prairie Creek Country Club was built in 1968. It has matured into a very tight, challenging course with lots of beautiful but challenging trees. Length is important, but accuracy is essential.

The rolling landscape offers hills and valleys that are breathtaking. Deer are a common sight on the fairways.

·         A challenging Joe Sanders design cut through the scenic Ozark mountains, Prairie Creek Country Club rewards long, accurate hitters and expert putters. The upper nine runs along the top of a hill, the bottom nine is in a valley where the wind always seems to be in your face. Though not the longest course around, its slope and USGA ratings testify to its inherent toughness.

USA Today asked Golf Digest to recommend its picks for public-access courses that can be played for under $50.00 in each state. Prairie Creek Country Club was the course choice for Arkansas.
