Miss Arkansas 2017

Golfers participating in the 2018 Miss Arkansas Golf Classic on May 20-21 are in for an incredible day of golf!  We are thrilled to welcome PGA Tour Winner and former Razorback Austin Cook back to his home state of Arkansas.  Austin will share remarks and golf tips prior to the shotgun start.  Then, we will auction off the opportunity to have Austin join your scramble team as the fifth player.  This is your opportunity to play with a PGA Tour Winner!  


3 Ways To Support Scholarships

Thanks to KATV Channel 7 for joining us for the 8th Annual Miss Arkansas Golf Classic!

9th Annual Miss Arkansas Golf Classic

To our supporters and volunteers of the 2017 Miss Arkansas Golf Classic, congratulations on raising over $85,000 for scholarships for young women!  We couldn’t have done it without you, as this tournament serves as the greatest annual fundraiser for the Miss Arkansas Scholarship Foundation.  For more information on our registered 501(c)3 nonprofit, please visit

Make plans to join us for the 2018 Miss Arkansas Golf Classic on May 20-21 at Pleasant Valley Country Club.  On Sunday night, the Spikes & Stilettos Casino Party will kick off with live music from Riverbilly, heavy hors d’oeuvres and memorable auction items.  Last year, we brought in casino tables staffed with experienced dealers in black jack, craps, and roulette.  It was a huge hit!  You won’t want to miss it!  Golfers and sponsors will receive complimentary tickets to Spikes & Stilettos while all other guests are encouraged to buy tickets online.

The Miss Arkansas Golf Classic tees off on Monday, May 21 after lunch served on the patio.  We will continue with the beloved four-person scramble format, along with several contests for additional prizes.  As always, we will have multiple prizes for hole-in-ones on three Par 3 holes.  In years past, we were only an inch away from granting $25,000 on a Par 3!

Finally, we will close the golf tournament with an exciting awards ceremony!  The four candidates that landed closest to the pin will be eligible for the Million Dollar Shootout.  Once again, we will send Miss Arkansas into the air for the Helicopter Ball Drop.  Instead of selling individual raffle tickets, we have decided to divide the numbered golf balls among golfers.  The ball closest to the hole will grant a cash prize!  We expect great fun and success from the 2018 Miss Arkansas Golf Classic as we strive to raise scholarship money for young women!
