A Great Year of Golf

11/19/2018

It has been a great year of golf here in The Natural State. As we reflect on the 2018 season, we are reminded how much this sport means to not only us, but every individual who shares the same love we have for this game. There is always power in anything capable of bringing people together. It is a mysterious power that often goes unnoticed, yet it can be found in its purest form among the fellowship and camaraderie contributed between individuals who share a similar passion. Often times, there is a love/hate relationship with golf, but no matter how many shots are shanked, sliced to the water, dog-hooked in a bunker, ricocheted off the woodwork...the love always tends to outweigh the hate, because there is power in love and there is power in community.

The Arkansas Golf Hall of Fame started in 1994 and has been filled with honorable and worthy inductees from across the great state of Arkansas since. We were privileged to induct a fantastic class of Hall of Famers this year. Congratulations to Dawn Darter of Sherwood (PGA Professional at The Greens at North Hills), Chris Jenkins of Little Rock (Former ASGA President), and Brent Winston of Sheridan on their induction to the Arkansas Golf Hall of Fame! Each of these inductees have been recognized for their outstanding achievements in golf, but more importantly, for their selfless acts of giving back to the game we cherish so much. We can’t thank them enough for the countless hours they have contributed, and for the incredible influence they have had on golf in the state of Arkansas.

With another season in the books, we would like to congratulate the 2018 Players of the Year and recognize the PGA Chapter Honors!

Again, we love seeing all the support, and can’t wait to see you all again next year for another great year of golf!
