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 Lady Razorbacks will 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.
Among the notable home owners at Pinnacle are 1995 British Open and 1991
PGA champion John Daly.
Pinnacle is graced with generous landing areas but its large, undulated
greens require both precision and accuracy. Its par 3's 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
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.
