Since 1929, the Hope Country Club is one the longest existing running country club's in southwest Arkansas with an 18-hole golf course to serve it's community. The club is currently requesting to fulfill and build up their membership to continue it's longtime tradition to stand as one of the most quality country clubs in Arkansas.

In the past, HCC has built up it's membership to around 300 members with access to enjoy playing golf anytime with quality maintenance kept in good conditions. Now, membership numbers have decreased in recent years with currently around 90 members. 

Currently longtime member Jim Meador, who dedicates a lot of valuable time to seeking needs and service of work at the country club

Meador said the country club provides a family oriented environment and is a service to the community. With the increase of membership, Meador commented that current facilities can be enhanced such as the tennis courts, swimming pool along with the opportunity for more additional venues for recreation.

Meador also mentioned, the HCC is has banquet rooms and been welcome to the public to host reunions, family parties and functions, weddings and wedding receptions as well as other events.

With a membership, the 18-hole course will be open to play at anytime, as well as fishing by the lake. It's been a very safe environment and atmosphere for many years and one of the few 18-hole golf course in southwest Arkansas.

The HCC golf course has been a very important, useful facility to host a variety of charity tournaments such as Rely for Life, Junior Auxiliary and the United Way in recents years. It's hosted tournaments to help raise money to welcome numerous teams and players from the entire state of Arkansas as well as Louisiana and other states to showcase talents on the course. HCC host's a 2-man Scramble and 2-man Shamble golf tournaments. It's also apart of the watermelon festival event by hosting the Watermelon 4-Ball which has featured over 70 teams that's been very successful for a longtime.

Meador said, "This tournament has drawn a really nice number of participation to compete. The money raised from the tournament goes to help with the country club's facilities." 

It's been a service to be the playing and practice site for high school golf teams such as Hope, Spring Hill, Blevins and Garrett Memorial Christian School. These schools has had the opportunity to welcome several well established golf programs to play each year that's featured some of the top players in the state to compete and keep a high profile of performance by playing on a well kept course. 

Hope, Spring Hill and Garrett Memorial all have hosted successful district tournaments at the HCC in past years and been valuable to be all teams for matches held during it's golf season.

For over 20 years, Hope High School's golf program has hosted it's annual Bobcat Scramble at HCC with quality participation that's helped raise funds for their golf teams and provide a comfortable playing and practice environment on it's 18-hole course.

The club's golf course covers about 164 acres with three professional workers that keep the maintenance up and ready at all times for any event, match or tournament to serves it's purpose.

"It's a nice golf course and it's a important part to the community. We always want to keep a family atmosphere and environment and just have a good and nice place to come and get together and socialize," Meador said.

The HCC is closed on Monday's and open Tuesday-Saturday with hours vary depending on seasons.

If interested for membership, there's a special currently going on for $75 a month for a full first year. Social and Junior membership is $50 a month.
