Camden Country Club -- 07-04-05
Review by: Steve Totty / Brandon Anglin I had called ahead, from out of town, knowing this is a private course, but hoping they would allow guests. Tony at the pro shop was very courteous and helpful, and his professionalism and hospitality were immediately recognizable. The course is a great place to play, with not only the tee boxes and especially the greens in keeping with what God must call beautiful, but this is the first course I've been able to enjoy where they water the fairways as well. Of eighteen holes, only one tee box really needed any extra work, and it is evidently getting the attention it needs. While this course is very nicely laid out, it does have plenty of good challenges for the more experienced golfer that won't intimidate those not playing very long. That type of philosophy and strategy is easily seen throughout the whole scope of this course. The course and score card are mapped out well; the paths, still being developed in a couple of areas, are well maintained and easy to follow; their driving range is easily accessible; the course was not overcrowded, but most of all, both me and my partner were treated as members should expect. We never once had the idea or feeling that we were "just allowed in" but were appreciated. Other members were very cordial and friendly - I look forward to the next visit and hope to play again. I definitely recommend this course to anyone who respects the game. Thank you very much,

Prairie Creek Country Club -- Course is a tale of two nines
Review by: George I have played this course more than any other in NW Arkansas. It never ceases to be a challenge. The top nine features tight fairways that place a premium on accuracy. If your tee shot wanders off the fairway, you've got trouble. When playing the front nine, think conservative. The greens are medium-sized and are challenging. The bottom or back nine is laid out in a valley and, while they are not wide open by any means, they are a bit more forgiving. There is a creek running down the right side of 9-17, with woods on the left. If you put a ball off the fairway into either the woods or the creek, you might as well get out another ball and take the penalty. The 18th features a blind tee shot to an elevated green. This is a fun and challenging course. Don't plan on walking in the heat of summer. The terrain is too rough. While PCCC is semi-private, the folks who run Prairie Creek are always welcoming to new golfers.
