The Magellan Golf Course is one of the shortest layouts at Hot Springs Village. It lacks the length of other courses at a wonderful golf facility but its tricky greens – renovated in 2012 – ensure golfers of all skill levels are challenged here.

All told, there are 171 holes in use across the Hot Springs Village complex, made up of seven 18-hole layouts, one 27-hole set-up, and one private 18-hole course called the Diamante. The Magellan was the fifth to appear, opening for public play in 1996.

In The American Golf Resort Guide, author Daniel Wexler writes: “the 6,494-yard Magellan is easily the shortest of the regulation courses, but despite having only two par fours over 400 yards, it still manages to offer a reasonable challenge.

Favorites here include a pair of short par fives, the 489-yard pond-fronted 7th and the 476-yard 13th, which dares a similar lake carry on approach. The 447-yard 8th is the strongest of the two-shotters, while the 366-yard creek-flanked 10th rates as the most engaging.”
