We would like to take this time to say “welcome back” to the Conference Center at Fairfield Bay, Arkansas. Welcome back because so many of you remember Fairfield Bay fondly as the place of choice for meetings, family reunions, weddings and business conferences from 1978 to 2002. The Conference Center here in Fairfield Bay was proud to host Governors, Senators, even a former President. In the fall of 2002 the center was closed and stayed closed until it was donated by the owner to the city of Fairfield Bay in 2012.
In early 2012 the city received a grant to repair the Conference Center structure which was in dire need. The building set empty for over eleven years with the roof leaking and both the exterior and interior in bad disrepair. After receiving the grant, the work began and was completed by the end of October 2013. The funds received by the city from the grant were for the building only. The city of Fairfield Bay and Friends of the Bay gave of their time and money for all the needed interior furnishings and amenities, to date more than $100,000.00. We are proud to show you what we now have. State of the art sound and lighting in our main Conference Room and Performing Arts Theater. We have the latest in conference furnishings and technical equipment for class room, banquet, conference or business meetings. In addition we offer Fishing, Boating, Hiking, Biking Trails, Two Championship Golf Courses, a Tennis Center that has hosted NCAA Division One Playoff’s, four Swimming Pools, a full Marina, as well as a fully equipped Fitness Center with an Olympic Swimming Pool.
We are also home to The North Central Arkansas Art Gallery and The North Central Arkansas Foundation For Arts and Education.

Cassie Lopez Takes Charge at Recreation
Cassie Lopez, the former Fitness Coordinator at the Hart Center, has taken the position of Recreation Manager for the Community Club.
Cassie comes to the Club with a background in exercise science and has always been involved with sports and recreation activities.
“I am very interested in creating more activities for kids during the spring and summer months. We are working on making more use out of the Lion’s Amphitheater in the park. I’m also working on putting together a men’s and women’s tennis league and get more use out of the great tennis courts that we have. I would also like to have a kid’s tennis camp in the summer for the area school kid.
We are currently working on creating more activity at the bowling alley with black lighting and glow bowls a couple nights a week to attract more people around the area.
The miniature golf is doing great and we may just add a glow ball event and tournaments.
I want recreation to be more viable for not only the visitors but for the people in the community. We’ll create some monthly activities throughout the year, said Cassie.”
“I would also like to see Fairfield Bay be considered a fun destination and see people from other parts of the region come and enjoy the activities that we have to offer.
I’m excited about this position and look forward to working with the staff and the community.

Indian Hills Golf Course is an 18-hole championship layout that is located in the “foothills of the Ozarks.” There are four sets of tees for players of all abilities to enjoy the natural surroundings as they make their way around one of the best kept secrets for championship golf in Arkansas. Indian Hills Golf Course is known by its tree-lined fairways, deep bunkers, small sloped greens, and the Indian Rock Cave located off number nine fairway.
The biggest challenge and key to playing Indian Hills with success is to put the ball in position to have a clear shot at the green. Most holes look straight forward off the tee but the challenge awaits on the approach shot to the green. Look out for overhanging tree limbs that may force a player to get creative when playing their shot to the green on hole numbers two, four, nine and sixteen.
The signature hole at Indian Hills is the par three seventeenth hole that players must hit across a large ravine to an elevated green that slopes severely from back to front. Players who hit great shots beneath the hole will be rewarded with an excellent chance at birdie. Shots missing the green will require a great up and down to save par. Indian Hills Golf Course is a true yet fair test of golf and welcomes all players to come and test their skills on this challenging layout.
It’s an experience where we can each: • recognize & discover who we are & what we’re made of, • heighten our senses, • acknowledge our vulnerability & that of other’s, • gain a greater respect for the value of life, • encourage ourselves & others to complete a challenging & exhilarating physical adventure, with the result of being a stronger person for it, • receive reinforcement, affirmation, & a renewing of our spirits, & • gain deepened bonds with our fellow adventurers.
“Loco” is Spanish for “crazy,” and for many of us, performing challenging feats high above the forest floor is, well, crazy – thinking of doing it only when pigs fly. But fly they must, because as Walt Disney said, “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible!”
Loco Ropes is a high wire forest adventure for fun loving folks of all ages. Our 3 Loco Lines, made up of 30+ elements, such as ziplines, tarzan swings, rope bridges, and swinging logs, offer challenges from the mildly cautious to the seriously adventurous! Our full course, End of the Line (Loco Lines 1, 2, & 3), takes approximately 3 hours to complete. Our shorter excursion, Short Line (Loco Line 1), takes about an hour to complete. Our Loco Crew equips and trains you to negotiate the treetop course by use of a continuous belay system that keeps you connected to the course’s safety cable wire from beginning to end. Children may trek the course unaccompanied and be supervised from the ground provided they are at least 12 years old and 58” tall. Our scheduled training times are available on a first-come-first serve basis. BOOK your Treetop Adventure online or by phone at locoropes.com, (888) 669-6717!TOWER ADVENTURES

Tannenbaum Golf Course
#5 Kustin Dr
Drasco, Ar 72530
Kept Golfing Secret!
Voted by Golf Digest as
one of AR’s Best Places to Play!
Carved out of the Ozark Mountains surrounding the crystal-clear waters of Greer’s Ferry Lake, Tannenbaum is actually a peninsula surrounded by water. Every hole is tree-lined and elevation from tee to green changes drastically, especially #12, where the drop is 130 feet straight downhill to a semi-island green carved from the mountainside. The John Floyd-designed course offers five sets of tees and one of the most challenging layouts in the state; it was rated by Golf Digest as one of the best places to play in 2005-2006. Tannenbaum also offers a 10-acre proactive facility with driving range, putting and chipping green and practice bunker. Its convenient location puts Tannenbaum close to world-record trout fishing on the Little Red River, recreation on Greer’s Ferry Lake, arts, crafts and shopping and other nearby Natural State Golf Trail courses.
We would like to take this opportunity to personally invite you to participate in one of the most exciting golf experiences you’ve had. Welcome to Tannenbaum Golf Club & Resort.
