From their very inception, the golf courses at Chenal were destined to be ranked among the most prestigious in the nation. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., both the Founders Course and the Bear Den Course are imaginatively conceived, dramatically beautiful and extraordinarily challenging. Mr. Jones, creator of more than 125 of the world’s best courses, including Monterey and Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach, CA, preserved the integrity of the rolling, wooded terrain of western Little Rock while developing two majestic courses.

With it’s tight, tree-lined fairways, crystal clear creeks and protected wildlife areas, the 7,326-yard Bear Den Course incorporates the natural features of the site, distinguishing it from the more open qualities of the original Founders Course.


Bear Den - Hole 1

Gold 444
Blue 412
White 388
Red 312

This beautiful opening hole presents a difficult tee shot, and sets the tone for the rest of the round.  Avoid the trees left and the hazard along the right side to set up a birdie opportunity.  Don’t lose your approach shot right of the green; left and short is safer here.
