8th Annual Miss Arkansas Golf Classic
Join us for the 2017 Miss Arkansas Golf Classic on May 21-22 at Pleasant Valley CountryClub, presented by Jones & Son Fine Jewelry. As the greatest fundraiser for the Miss Arkansas Scholarship Foundation, in 2016 we raised over $70,000 for scholarships for young women in Arkansas.
This year, we will have a few changes to the tournament weekend while keeping our favorite aspects of the party! Spikes & Stilettos will be a pre-party for golfers and guests on Sunday, May 21. We will provide heavy hors d’oeuvres, live music entertainment, and a “spike” and “stiletto” specialty cocktail drink. We will have a silent auction with items representing golf clubs across the state of Arkansas. Also, the ever popular live auction items will include a distinguished golf trip and more. You will not want to miss the Spikes & Stilettos pre-party!
With much consideration, we have changed the format of the tournament to a scramble. With this well-known format, we are granting one mulligan per player. As you may know, Pleasant Valley Country Club is finishing extensive renovations on their course. Along with the new short game facility, we will introduce new chipping and putting contests for prizes. As always, we will have multiple prizes for hole-in-ones on three Par 3 holes. Last year, we were only an inch away from granting $25,000 on a Par 3.
Finally, we will close the golf tournament with an awards ceremony. The four candidates that were closest to the pin will be eligible for the Million Dollar Shootout. Finally, the grand finale will be the return of the Helicopter Ball Drop. Raffle tickets will be sold for $10 per ball, and the closest ball to the hole will be awarded $5,000. We will have a great time during the Miss Arkansas Golf Classic, and look forward to seeing you again next year!
