The Country Club of Arkansas will be the site of next week’s Arkansas State Golf Association Parent-Child Championship.

But the event is much more than that.

It’s actually called the Parent-Child Championship and Grandparent-Grandchild Championship.

Parent-Child (and steps are included) includes Mother-Daughter, Mother-Son, Father-Daughter and Father-Son. The Grandparent-Grandchild category includes Grandmother-Granddaughter, Grandmother-Grandson, Grandfather-Grandson and Grandfather-Granddaughter. Other categories are Mother-in-Law/Son-in-Law, Father-in-Law/Daughter-in-Law and PGA Pro/Child.

So there’s something for everyone in the 18-hole tournament.

Minimum age is 10. Entry fee is $100 per team. The 1:30 p.m. shotgun start medal-play event will feature alternate shot on the par-3s, scramble on the par-4s and best ball on the par-5s.
