With fairways hewn from beautiful Ozark Mountain woodland, the 18-hole layout at Mountain Ranch Golf Club offers far more than the normal golfing challenge that might be expected of a resort course.

Host venue for several state golf championships, Mountain Ranch is a tough test of golf from the back tees, which stretch the layout to 6,780 yards, and you’ll need to be well in control of your game here as fairways are tightly tree-lined all the way from start to finish.

The right doglegging par five 14th (in the most southerly part of the property) is a memorable hole – with more than an eighty foot drop from tee to fairway – and it’s followed by the hardest hole on the card at the uphill 15th.

Mountain Ranch does not have a lot of competition in northwest Arkansas. This is a tree lined course with lots of ups and downs. Not the easiest walking course. The first hole is welcoming, leans a little right with bunkers front left and back right. The 2nd is a reverse S par five. Favor the left off the tee to avoid the right fairway bunker. The green is tucked behind a water hazard on the left so play it as a three shotter. The 3rd is the shortest par three. The 4th is a dogleg left with two large bunkers on the inside elbow. The 5th is similar, albeit longer with bunkers on the inside elbow. The 6th is another short par three. The 7th is a long par four with no real trouble (other than trees) and three greenside bunkers. The 8th is the longest par five, but does not have a lot of trouble. The 9th is a straight away par four with two fairway bunkers left starting about 170 yards out.

The back starts with 4 birdie oppties. The 10th is a dogleg left with two fairway bunkers om the outside elbow. The 11th is longer and tighter. Favor right of center off the tee. The 12th is the shortest par four and is a dogleg left. You can cut some of the corner but the hole has half a dozen bunkers inside 100 yards. Consider layng up. The 13th is a short par three. The 14th is the longest par five, but it is downhill, a big bender right. Play it as a three shotteer. The 15th bends a bit to the right but now we are going back uphill and is deservedly the number two handicap hole. The 16th is the longest par three. The 17th is the longest par four and has fairway bunkers on the right side. The 18th is the last par five and also has fairway bunkers on the right side.

A decent course that is very predictable. I would not pay to play it again.
