The Red Apple Inn 18-hole Championship Golf Course

Our championship 18-hole golf course is one of the loveliest in Arkansas and features panoramic hilltop views of the lake and tree-lined corridors. Architect Gary Panks blended the island’s rolling hills, trees, and majestic hilltop vistas into a course that is challenging to the novice and expert alike. Hole #2 was voted "Most Scenic Hole in Arkansas" by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in 2006. Our par 71, 6,018-yard course is a fun course to conquer.

For novices, lessons are available from our resident golf pro. Equipment and clothing available in our Pro Shop. Browse our gift shop for a memento from your stay at the Red Apple.

As a founding member of the Natural State Golf Trail, our natural scenic beauty and year-round mild climate make us a haven for golfers. The 15 courses on The Natural State Golf Trail will challenge your game and embed themselves in your memory banks for seasons to come.



The Red Apple offers two swimming pools to suit your every need. Take a leisurely walk down by our waterfall to the Inn Pool. You can sun yourself and take a break to order a box lunch from our dining room.

A short drive from the Inn will take you to Isle Harbor Pool located close to the lake and marina.

With Greers Ferry Lake just around the corner, there are several great swimming areas at the Corp parks. Greers Ferry Lake also has several locations to dive and explore the natural clear waters of the Ozarks.


If you grow tired of golf, several lighted, plexi-paved tennis courts are located close to the Inn as well as by the Isle Harbor Pool area.

No reservations are needed, but you will need to check in with the front desk to use the lighted courts.

The Red Apple Inn is located just minutes away from Greers Ferry Lake and the Little Red River. Both Greers Ferry Lake and the Little Red River are famous for excellent sport fishing.

The Little Red is home to the current world record 40 pound 4 ounce brown trout. There are several guide services in the area providing expert guide services for species of trout and smallmouth bass. They can guide you for trout on any of Arkansas’ three famous tailwaters or for stalking a wild smallmouth bass in an Ozark mountain stream. There are also several public access areas that are ideal for fly fishing.

Fishermen associate Greers Ferry Lake with walleye fishing. A national walleye tournament is held on Greers Ferry Lake every year. The world record walleye weighing more than 22 pounds was caught here. The largemouth and smallmouth bass, the spotted or Kentucky bass, the striped bass/white bass hybrids, the lake trout, crappie and bream are all species found in the lake. The new world's record hybrid bass weighing 27 pounds, 5 ounces was also caught in Greers Ferry Lake.
