The Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G returns this fall, taking place September 23 – October 1, 2023, at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers, Arkansas.
One hundred forty-four of the world’s best golfers return to the region competing for a $2.3 million purse. The week-long schedule of community events will once again feature a charitable 5k race, onsite food festival, women’s leadership summit, guided bike ride, and variety of volunteer opportunities. A comprehensive schedule of events can be found online at NWAChampionship.com.
“The Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G continues to be so much more than a golf tournament for our region,” said Jennifer R. Jackson, Walmart Senior Vice President, Merchandising. “We are thrilled to continue to provide affordable and accessible experiences for the community to enjoy throughout #NWAChampionship Week and invite all of Northwest Arkansas and beyond to join us for what has become one of the best weeks of the year in our area.”
The BITE Experience @ the LPGA will also return to the #NWAChampionship in 2023, as the tournament’s onsite food festival. Through this signature culinary experience, spectators will have the opportunity to sample the best local restaurants the region has to offer. The BITE Experience will take place Friday, September 29, through Sunday, October 1, with ticket buyers receiving access to both a golf-viewing deck and expanded courtyard space. New in 2023, each day of the BITE Experience will highlight a variety of diverse-owned restaurants and eateries through strategic partnerships with community organizations such as Black-Owned NWA and NWA Equality.
“We are beyond excited for BITE NW Arkansas to return to the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G,” said Brian Williams, Procter & Gamble Vice President, Sam’s Club Team. “Through the platform of BITE, we have the opportunity to showcase and celebrate our diverse community while continuing our efforts to help make Northwest Arkansas a better place to live and work.”
Additionally, the 5k @ the LPGA benefiting Mercy will return on Saturday, September 23 to the Walmart AMP as part of the week’s schedule of family-friendly events. Local companies are invited to participate in the corporate challenge, competing for the titles of Fittest and Fastest Office in NW Arkansas. Additional race information will be announced in the coming months, with registration slated to open in July.
