Our Melbourne golf course is one of the top public golf facilities in Arkansas. Our scenic course is a 7,011 yard championship layout from the back tees.  It consists of Zoysia tees and fairways and bent grass greens. Strategically placed bunkers and water hazards, combined with the rolling countryside and natural wooded areas, make for a challenging round of Melbourne golf for players of all abilities.

A trip to Cooper’s Hawk is an ideal golfer’s getaway that is guaranteed to be an enjoyable and a memorable one. For more information, please call the Pro Shop at (870) 368-3280. Enjoy your visit at our website.
