The Alotian Club

The Alotian Club

The Alotian Club | Roland, Arkansas

Opened in 2004, The Alotian Club is ranked No. 31 on Golf Digest’s biennial ranking of “America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses.” The course was built by Little Rock businessman Warren Stephens and was identified by Golf Digest as the best new private course in the country in 2005.

Renowned golf architect Tom Fazio designed the course, which measures 7,480 yards from the championship tees. The course plays 6,780 yards from member tees and 5,385 yards from forward tees. The course’s signature trait is elevation change, with the most dramatic coming at the sixth hole with a 100-foot drop from the tee to green.

The Alotian Club hosted the 111th Western Amateur in 2013.
