My husband Clay and I moved from Austin TX to Bella Vista in November 2019. I am new to golf, and even newer to keeping score - prior to January, I would always just pick up my ball and hit from wherever Clay's ball landed. We have two adult children, who live in St Louis and Austin. I enjoy reading, waterskiing, hiking and gardening. I am excited about playing golf with such an amazing group of ladies. Everyone has already been so encouraging and fun to play with.

My husband, Jeff, and I moved from Wichita Kansas to Bella Vista about three and a half years ago. We both enjoy golfing and bass fishing and are really loving retirement life! I'm excited to start my second year of golf this spring and hoping to learn a lot by playing with this awesome group.

I have lived in Bella Vista for 15 years and recently retired from Walmart Corporate Real Estate. I played on golf teams in high school and college, but then work-a-day life took over so I’ve only played a half dozen times in the past 40 years. Ready to get back to it! Be patient, I’m very inconsistent but hoping to get better. I’m not competitive. I just love the beauty of the outdoors and good company.

I started golfing in 2010 when we moved to Bella Vista. My other hobbies include line-dancing, hiking, and reading. My husband Charlie and I have three children and three grandchildren. I’m looking forward to making new friends in our 9 hole group.

Fran Boulware -- Fran is one of our new members. She moved here about 4 month ago from Columbus, Ks. and married Jay, who has lived here for 21 years. They both had lost spouses. He also was from Columbus so they had known each other for 40 years. Together they have 6 children, 11 grand children and 2 great grand children. Fran has not played golf for the past 8 years as she was the care giver to her late husband. Jay had her fitted for new golf clubs and she's taken some lessons from Hillery. What a great start Fran. Welcome to the 9 Hole Golf Club!


Pam Larimer

My husband and I moved to Bella Vista last October and was just getting so excited to be able to get out and get involved in golf and all that Bella Vista has to offer. We moved here to be close to our daughter, son-in-law and our granddaughter born last August, they live in Rogers. We are also tennis players, but looking forward to trying to play golf again. We moved here from Maumelle, AR and so excited about a new chapter in our life and being first time grandparents, it is hard to top that. I am still working on my handicap, I still need one more 9 hole round and then I will be set to play when we are finally able to get out in groups again
