Pinnacle Country Club began as farm land in the serene rolling hills of Rogers, Arkansas. In 1988, with the goal of creating a superlative private golf course and gated community in Northwest Arkansas. A group of visionaries led by Berky Resources Corporation, developers and local golf enthusiasts, including the late James T. “Red” Hudson of Hudson Foods, transformed the pristine Rogers, Arkansas land into what was originally known as Champions Golf & Country Club. The Pinnacle Country Club Golf Course was originally designed by renowned golf course architect, the late Don Sechrest, with PGA TOUR great Bruce Lietzke serving as a consultant. The Golf Course opened for play in 1990, and true to their vision, the club rose to prominence as one of the most desirable private clubs in the region. In 2009, the Pinnacle Country Club Golf Course was redesigned by Randy Heckenkemper.
Along the way, Pinnacle Country Club, in Northwest Arkansas, has distinguished itself as a world-class venue for championship golf. Among the numerous high-profile events that have been staged on its perfectly sculpted links are the Greg Norman Challenge and the Phillips Classic. The course also serves as the annual host of the LPGA’s prestigious NW Arkansas Championship, featuring competition by some of the best female players in professional golf.
Pinnacle Country Club has also served as host to numerous high-profile personalities in the worlds of politics, sports and entertainment, including Prince Andrew Earl of Wessex, First Lady Laura Bush, President Bill Clinton, Greg Norman, Larry Bird, Wayne Gretzky, Glen Campbell, Dan Marino, Adam Sandler, Morgan Freeman, Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Lady Antebellum, Paula Abdul, Kris Allen, Natalie Gulbis, Stacy Lewis, Christie Kerr, along with many notable LPGA players. Pinnacle Country Club is owned and operated by the Hudson family with Mike Hudson serving as President.
