From Golf Digest:

Add Bella Vista, Ark., to the list of remote buddies-trip destinations offering value and a variety of good golf worth writing about.
Take it from Ken Ray of Ponca, Okla., who has led a group of avid golfers to the Natural State's northwest quadrant for 20 years. "We can't play this cheap at home," says Ray, an 8-handicap. "We've only been rained out of one round in 20 years -- and there are streams, waterfalls, lakes, little mountains, birds and foliage."

The area's six courses, all within 15 minutes of each other, charge $42 ($29 after 2 p.m.). There's everything from undulating, narrow and demanding to flat, open and forgiving -- and all in good condition. Only 14 miles from the Bentonville, Ark., airport and a four-hour drive from Ponca City, Bella Vista is comparable to St. George, Utah, Michigan's Garland Lodge & Resort and some of the spots on Alabama's Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in terms of price and quality of golf.
