Hot Springs Country Club courses are ranked #1 and #2 in the state by Golf.com for the best courses you can play in Arkansas. Hot Springs plays host to numerous state and regional championships each year.

The Spring 2017 NCCGA National Championship will feature 32 of the best club golf teams, as well as 9 individuals representing their schools. The tournament will be a 2-day, 36-hole team and individual stroke play event. The University of Georgia took home the Fall 2016 championship in dominant fashion.
