Alotian Golf Club

Alotian Club

The Alotian Club has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.

Arkansas's answer to Augusta National features many similarities to the real thing, including a rolling, wooded tract studded with azaleas in springtime, the design hand of Tom Fazio, and an ambience of relaxed exclusivity. It's no wonder, given that Alotian founder Warren Stephens's dad, Jack, was the former Augusta chairman. Overlooking Lake Maumelle, the course embraces strategic bunkering, angled greens and excellent direction changes throughout the round. Flawless conditioning, risk/reward par 5s and forests dotted with dogwoods do make it sound a lot like a certain Georgia.
