Nestled comfortably in a bend of the Arkansas River; this eighteen (18)-hole championship course was designed to accommodate golfers of all levels. Rebsamen’s open fairways and Champion Bermuda greens help frame some of the most breathtaking views found on any Arkansas golf courses.
A nine (9)-hole executive course provides golfers a shorter playtime and offers Tif-dwarf Bermuda grass greens. The full-service driving range enables golfers to warm up before a round or work on their swing anytime.
In 1936, the Little Rock Water Works purchased this site for use as a “well farm”. The City of Little Rock, in 1948, purchased the property from the Water Works with plans to creat a riverside park. Only minor improvements were made until 1954, when Raymond Rebsamen donated $30,000 for the development of a municipal golf course. Within a few years of the golf course completion, severe erosion forced the relocation of nine holes southward from the eroding river bank. During the early 1960’s, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers constructed stone-filled pile dikes from the shoreline out into the Arkansas River to aid in bank stabilization and flood control. These dikes have reduced the danger of flooding and, as silt is being built-up between the jetties, the filled area will eventually be usuable for recreation purposes.
