Driving the Delta
Village Creek Golf Course, Wynne
Arkansas's flat, open Delta land could be likened to the terrain of the Scottish seashore where the game of golf was born. It has a special appeal all its own. One sees it in the quiet, cypress-studded lakes or in lush fields at harvest time. Delta golfers enjoy a variety of unique golf courses and interesting views as they play the game--from courses with rice silos near the fairways to courses that make the most of Crowley's Ridge, the scenic anomaly which rises 250 feet above the Delta land around it.

You'll need your oversized driver. The Arkansas Delta runs from one end of the state to the other along our eastern Mississippi River border with a nice run of golfing along the way.
Playing north to south, tee off first at Piggott's Sugar Creek Country Club 9, followed by Corning's 18-hole Victory Lake Golf Course. Then go for a quick round at Blytheville's small, picturesque nine-hole municipal course. Be ready to use all your clubs at RidgePointe Country Club at Jonesboro, where the six-lake, 6,500-yard course is the center point of Jonesboro's upscale housing development also known as RidgePointe. Jonesboro's Sage Meadows is an 18-hole Tommy Bolt signature golf course, and it is one of Arkansas's many unique golf courses by famous golf course designers.
Be sure to play the Jonesboro Country Club 18, the Paragould Country
Club 18 and the Trumann Country Club 9 while in the Jonesboro area.
Next up is more challenging 18-hole golf at the Meadowbrook Country Club
