Pinnacle Country Club
Founded in 1990, Pinnacle Country Club is one of Northwest Arkansas' premiere golf and tennis facilities. The course, designed by Don Sechrest in association with Bruce Lietzke, stretches 6,695 yards from the back tees with a course rating of 72.8 and a slope of 131. The Razorbacks compete from Pinnacle's white tees with a length of 6,102 yards.
Located 20 minutes north of Fayetteville in Rogers, Ark., Pinnacle is known both for its course difficulty and homesite elegance.
Pinnacle is graced with generous landing areas, but its large, undulated greens require both precision and accuracy. Its par 3s are extremely challenging including Pinnacle's signature hole, No. 15. This hole requires a golfer's most accurate mid-iron as the 160-yard downhill shot must carry to an island green.
While young in its existence, Pinnacle has a history as host of prestigious events including the Greg Norman Challenge in 1990 and the Philips Classic in 1992, an event which included several senior PGA players.
Pinnacle Country Club was conceived to rival the finest private clubs in the Midwest. Members and their families enjoy the camaraderie of their peers in a luxurious, yet relaxed atmosphere noted for exceptional service and amenities.
With its wealth of natural beauty, Pinnacle's easily accessible location offers an ideal escape from the complexities of life and brings members together for social and sporting pursuits of the highest caliber. The grand clubhouse provides a comfortable setting for casual entertaining as well as formal events. The elegant design and location of the clubhouse evoke the Southern hospitality that welcomes all members "home."

The 18-hole United States Golf Association-approved course is located just a short 10-minute drive south of campus in Fayetteville.

In addition to golfing facilities that include an elegant club house, Fayetteville Country Club offers four competition-ready tennis courts with lights for night-time play and an Olympic-sized swimming pool with a wading pool and full dining services.
Paradise Valley Athletic Club

Paradise provides competitors with challenging doglegs and several water spots to navigate around.
Springdale Country Club
Located 10 minutes north of campus, Springdale Country Club began expansion of its course from nine to 18 holes in the summer of 1996. Completed in the spring of 1997, it presents golfers with completely different courses on the front and back. The front was built in 1927 and redesigned in 1972 with the back having been designed by Blan Pittman and featuring a modern design with many physical challenges to overcome.
