TCC's cherished history includes golfing legend Byron Nelson who served as Club Professional in 1934 prior to his outstanding career on the PGA Tour. Mr. Nelson would always practice on the TCC course prior to the Masters tournament referring to it as “little Augusta” due to the many similarities between the courses. Don Murphy served next as Club Professional for 41 years and was instrumental in developing many players, the most famous being Miller Barber. As of 2010, eight players from TCC have been inducted into the Arkansas Golf Hall of Fame -- the most from any golf club in the state!
