Alotian Club

Spanning more than 1,500 acres overlooking Lake Maumelle in Roland, Ark., the Alotian Club, a 2004 Tom Fazio design, is ranked No. 31 on the Golf Digest “America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses” list and 14th on Golfweek’s Best list of the top 200 modern courses in the United States. The Alotian Club has a history of supporting amateur golf, hosting the Western Amateur in 2013 and the Arnold Palmer Cup in 2019.

The name “Alotian” is derived from an annual trip among friends in which the group would visit the best golf destinations in the country. The trip was labeled the “America Lights Out Tour,” or ALOT. They referred to themselves as “Alotians,” with an “Alotian” being someone who enjoys having a good time and loves the game of golf. This is the spirit in which Alotian was founded.
