Mystic Creek Selected #1 in Arkansas by GolfWeek
By Dave Daubert
Recently the NCAA Golf Championships highlighted the spectacular golf in Arkansas, the 'Natural State', contested the last weeks of May. Now, GolfWeek magazine has put out its "Best You Can Play List" and Mystic Creek Golf Club in El Dorado topped the list. The semi-private club managed by Honours Golf, a division of Troon, the leader in golf management, development, and marketing, was established in 2013.
Mystic Creek Golf Club was carved from the rolling terrain and timberlands of southern Arkansas by ASGCA architect Ken Dye Jr. on a 510 acre tract and was immediately recognized as one of the 'Best New Courses' by Golf Digest. This semi private par 72 course reaches to 7,492 yards flowing through the Cathedral piney woods similar to Augusta National. The high flashing bunkers are reminiscent of A. W. Tillinghast's masterpiece at Winged Foot and the domed greens with runoffs would make Donald Ross proud as he did at Pinehurst #2. Mystic Creek is an unforgettable golf experience for all levels of players with multiple tee boxes to make the length suitable to your game.
"Mystic Creek is a stunning course on what can only be described as a magnificent piece of property," said Bob Barrett, CEO of Honours Golf. "With generous fairways and dramatic bunkering, the course offers tour-quality playing surfaces while delivering an exciting and memorable round every time you play. Mystic Creek is a true gem. We look forward to enhancing the member and guest experience." To book a tee time, find out about memberships, call 870-312-0723 or visit MysticCreekGolf.com.
