“The summer fun never ends at Fairfield Bay,” exclaims Cassie Lopez, Recreation Manager. “We’ve been fortunate with beautiful weather all season, so we decided to soak up more sun with another all-day family picnic party. Lots of olde-fashion pool and lawn games. We’re SUPER excited about having Heath Sanders perform for us as well. What a talent!”

Enjoy the music of Arkansas’ newest singing sensation Heath Sanders! Heath is a former Oil Field worker from Arkansas turned full time musician. His cover of Chris Stapleton’s “Either Way” went viral and caught the attention of Bobby Bones in February. He’s been selling out shows since then and has been in the studio recording his first song “Bloodline” that will be released in the next few weeks. We’re super excited that he’s chosen to perform for our party! Don’t miss out – this rising star is definitely one to see! Tickets are ONLY $10!
So, summer’s almost over, and yes, school will be starting soon, but we’re going to hang on to summer for just a little bit longer! We look forward to seeing you at the biggest pool party of the season!
Sat September 15th, Superintendents Revenge, 9am Start
Indian Hills Golf Resort
The Best Revenge is….
served on a golf course??
A dump truck on the greens? Is that even LEGAL? Well, it is when you play in the 21st Annual Superintendent’s Revenge Golf Tournament. This 18-hole, 4-person scramble will be held on Saturday, September 15th at 9am the Indian Hills Golf Course! Already known for its challenges, this golf course will have even more and obstacles for you to golf around. Enjoy the round as you compete with other teams to see who has “the right stuff’!
“The Superintendent’s Challenge is like no other tournament we hold,” says Rebecca Jenkins, Indian Hills Golf Course Manager. “We have golfers come from all over the country – some even planning vacations around it – to participate and see what new and exciting curves we’ll throw at them. All of it is in good fun, and proceeds earned will go toward making course improvements.”
This tournament has been held annually for the past 21 years, and is expanding this year to accommodate even more teams. The rumor is that some players even try to sneak a peek the evening before to see what they may encounter along the way – but the tricky ground crews have threatened to work under cover of darkness to ensure that everyone will be surprised. And no worries they have added some NEW obstacles to the course this year!
The shotgun start will be at 9 AM, and the cost is $50 per person (cost includes green fees, cart, lunch and prizes). Gather your best team of 4 to tee off on this super fun and exciting course!
