Cherokee Village Arkansas Golf !

Golf in Cherokee Village, Arkansas is, in one word…uncrowded.

No tee times.

Yes, you read it correct. Most golfers would think that a scenic course with no tee times and rarely very busy would not exist. Most would say if there are no tee times, then it must be very exclusive and expensive. If it’s not busy, then it must be a poorly groomed course and not very much fun to play.

Wrong on all counts.

Cherokee Village is golf paradise with its two championship eighteen hole golf courses. Both courses are beautiful and uncrowded. Arkansas' mild climate gives you the chance most years to play golf year round.

Cherokee Village South Course is an 18 hole regulation length golf course. The South Course is the longer of the two courses. It is hilly and offers wide open fairways. This championship layout plays fairly long from the back tees at 7058 yards. Modestly difficult, this golf course definitely rewards good shots and can be forgiving of bad ones. You'll enjoy many nice views on the South course. The view from the first tee is incredible as is the view from the clubhouse overlooking the course.

Cherokee Village North Course is also an 18 hole regulation length golf course. This medium-length 6687 yard course offers a more challenging layout than the South Course where strategy and finesse will help. Water is in play on 6 holes. This course has the South Fork River meandering through it and is very picturesque.

Both courses are private and available only to property owners and their registered guests. Both courses have a pro shop and a driving range.

The fees for each course for property owners currently are $13 for 9 holes, $18 for 18 holes, and an all day pass is $29.
