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.
Follow The Great River Road To More Challenging Courses
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 new 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
at West Memphis, the Forrest City Country Club and the Helena Country
Club. The Grand Prairie Country Club at Hazen, the Stuttgart
Country Club and the Oak Hills Country Club all offer nine challenging holes to test your game.
