The Highlands Golf Course and the Bella Vista POA are proud to announce that the Bentonville West High School golf team will call the Highlands home when they open their doors in the fall. The Bentonville West Wolverines will join two other high school teams, the Gravette High Lions and the Life Way Christian Warriors, in hosting their home games and practices at the Highlands. The course is a short drive from Centerton and Gravette, making it a convenient location for the junior golfers and their families to play and practice. Team tryouts for the three schools will soon take place, and practices will commence near the end of July.
The Bella Vista POA is proud to encourage the improved growth, wellness, and sportsmanship of junior golfers by promoting golf for life. We do this through our full program selection, including summer junior golf clinics for ages 6 through 17 and our All in the Family tournament, a tournament of two-person teams comprised of relatives and open to players as young as 6-years old. Our pro shops are available to help junior golfers find proper fitting clubs and gear. And we offer golf lessons for all ages at the Highlands Practice Center, with reduced pricing for junior golfers and families at all of our courses.
Our collaboration with local schools supports Bella Vista POA’s mission to improve and advance opportunities for the community youth through golf. Early introduction to the sport has proven to provide great benefits for one’s education, health, and character. Playing from an early age helps youth develop physical strength, sportsmanship, and mental focus and problem solving skills. And some junior golfers go on to attend university on a golf scholarship. By supporting our youth now, we believe we are helping to develop strong community leaders for the future.
While Bella Vista is a member-based community, anyone is welcome to join us at the Highlands Practice Center or at any of our seven beautiful, yet challenging courses. No matter the skill level, there is a course for everyone in Bella Vista. To learn more about our tee times and rates, please contact us at 479-855-5079.
