Fianna Hills CC in Arkansas about to be acquired


By the end of the year, a financially squeezed private club in Fort Smith, Arkansas will likely have new owners.

Lance Beaty and Stephen Nelson are reportedly completing the due diligence on their planned purchase of Fianna Hills Country Club, a 40-year-old property. The club features an 18-hole golf course that was renovated by Carter Morris in 2004 and a clubhouse that one of the sellers acknowledges “is due for a major renovation.”

Assuming that the transaction is completed, the prospective owners will attempt to “reposition” Fianna Hills and make it appeal to what Beaty calls “a younger audience and demographic.” He told the City Wire that “there will not be another venue in this market that will provide the range of amenities, event, and social activities that we will have here.”
