Loma Linda is a village in Newton County, Missouri, United States. The population was 507 at the 2000 census, at which time it was a town. It is part of the Joplin, Missouri Metropolitan Statistical Area. The village, a collection of homes and properties surrounding the golf course and country club of the name, was incorporated in 1995. Loma Linda Country Club was created by Joe Blau of New York and the late Ted Hoffman in 1971. Until August 2005, the golf pro at Loma Linda was Benny Pell.

On January 1, 2006, the course, village water company, and the surrounding 2,500 acre (10 km²) area were sold to Joplin businessman Bobby Landis. Landis had acquired the resort and apartment complex of Loma Linda by the end of 2005. This was a lease not a sale. In 2007 the Quapaw Indian Tribe purchased Loma Linda and incorporated it into the resort that is the Down Stream Casino and Resort - the purchase was made from Joe Blau and was published as such in the Joplin Globe. Loma Linda the Town actually is part of the Seneca School system not Joplin even though there are Joplin addresses. The tribe has continued to remodel the country club and golf course. The public course (Loma Linda South) is closed. The Villas of Loma Linda are no longer open to timeshare owners, and many have filed complaints against the Loma Linda Resort. The Villas are dilapitated and in need of repair. The club and golf course all have been renamed by the tribe and is no longer known as the Loma Linda Country Club.
