In case time has gotten away from you, Sunday is Father’s Day. Do you need some quick gift ideas? We have a few. Is the man in your life a golfer? Then how about a Natural State Golf Trail Passport? You can give him a great present while contributing to a terrific Arkansas organization which works to change the lives of children in Arkansas. Seven of the 12 courses which comprise the golf trail are taking part in this promotion. Passport holders receive two free rounds of golf at these participating clubs: Big Creek Golf and Country Club in Mountain Home; Eagle Crest Golf Club in Alma; Harbour Oaks Golf Club in Pine Bluff; Red Apple Country Club in Heber Springs; Sage Meadows Golf Club in Jonesboro, The Ridges at Village Creek State Park in Wynne; and The First Tee of Central Arkansas in Little Rock.
One hundred percent of the funds generated by the sale of the passports go to The First Tee which introduces thousands of Arkansas children to the world of golf who might not ever have the opportunity to play otherwise. The passport is valid January 1 through December 31, 2013. Visit www.arkansas.com/outdoors/golf/trail/ to purchase a passport or contact Brad Martin at 501-562-4653 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If golf isn’t quite what you’re looking for, then how about an Arkansas State Park gift certificate? There’s a park to fit just about any Dad’s interests whether it’s exploring the great outdoors through camping, boating or canoeing or sitting in a hot tub at a cabin or lodge overlooking a peaceful valley.
The gift certificates are available for purchase in any denomination, and they are redeemable for any service or merchandise (with the exception of concessionaire offerings) in the state parks throughout Arkansas.
The certificates can be purchased by phone at 501-868-5806, at any state park visitor center or museum, or from the state parks director’s office at One Capitol Mall in Little Rock.
