CAN’T. WAIT. FOR. TOURNAMENT. WEEK! We’re ready for a week of amazing golf and fun activities at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship, presented by P&G, June 18-24 at Pinnacle Country Club!
This event raises thousands of dollars for local charities, especially this year! The Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G along with BITE NW Arkansas recently made a $30,000 donation to the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank. In honor of the food bank’s 30th anniversary being celebrated in June, $3 of every ticket sold to the BITE NW Arkansas food festival will directly benefit the NWA Food Bank.
You also can help another local charity just by walking with #Miles4Mercy. While you’re at the tournament, drop by the Mercy tent on the 18th fairway for info on how to sign up, keep track of your steps and be entered to win a Fitbit.
Looking for a great spot to watch the golf action once you’re inside? Check out the Kimberly-Clark viewing decks, located at holes 1, 9, 17 and 18. These decks are free, first-come first-serve seating.
The tournament features tons of activities for kids in the Sam’s Club Kids Center, such as face painting, games and crafts. The center is open all week and free to everyone. Young golfers can also take part in The First Tee Junior Golf Zone presented by Dove on June 24. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., kids ages 17 and younger can drop by the 9th hole putting green for free putting lessons and tips from coaches.
A new activity at the 2018 tournament is Yoga for Girls, presented by Dove. This free, beginner’s yoga class open to girls ages 6-12 will be held from 10-11 a.m. June 19. A LPGA professional will take part in the class and talk about how about how yoga has benefited her. Register for Yoga for Girls here.
Another event we’re excited for includes two things we enjoy: yoga and cocktails! Yoga on the Green is a free, 45-minute yoga class for all skill levels taught by Allisson Kublanov of Bee Well Yoga. It will be from 9:30-10:30 a.m. June 24 at Hub479, an open air structure at the 17th hole. After the class, participants can sip on mimosas and win prizes from Lululemon. Register for Yoga on the Green here.
