Picturesque views of the Ozark Mountains and challenging fairways are just a few reasons to visit local Eureka Springs golf courses. Because of the mild temperatures of the region, the courses are ideal throughout all seasons. The lush green trees in the summer to the changing leaves in the fall, each season is unique to experience the views of the courses. From public to semi-private clubs and 9-hole to 18-hole courses, there is a Eureka Springs golf course for every experience level and budget.
Holiday Island Country Club, just five miles from Eureka Springs, is an 18-hole championship golf course.
