Most people know that Fayetteville is home to the University of Arkansas Razorbacks. In fact, Fayetteville is Named the No. 4 Best College Town in the Nation and Fayetteville is ranked #1 place to live in the SEC. While the region packs the stadium to call the Hogs, enthusiasm for sports goes beyond college team spirit.

Fayetteville is the ideal backdrop to host sporting events of all kinds and sizes. The north-south Interstate I-49 connects the largest towns in the region and in doing so expands the possibilities for larger events. We have the facilities, the know-how and all the resources to knock your sporting event out of the park.

A favorite pastime in Fayetteville is a sport played a lot like golf but uses flying discs instead of clubs and golf balls. Of course, we are talking about Disc Golf! This sport has been woven into the fabric of the Fayetteville outdoor recreational scene and is gaining in popularity especially this year. Disc golf is an activity that will bring you to the shores of Fayetteville’s first aquafer at Lake Fayetteville and wind you through the woods of our second oldest park. With two 18-hole courses and several 9-hole courses, no matter what your skill level is, there is a place and a friend here in Fayetteville to play disc golf with you. After a day out on the course, be sure to check out the many great restaurants in Fayetteville and breweries on the Fayetteville Ale Trail.
