Lesbian Love Fest at the Northwest Arkansas LPGA

The LPGA Weekend in Northwest Arkansas is fast becoming synonymous with a lesbian love fest, but not for the organizers who originally intended it to be a prestigious golf tournament.
 

Held annually at the Pinnacle Country Club, the Northwest Arkansas LPGA Weekend is quickly becoming a destination for lesbians seeking a vacation getaway spot for lesbian couples and also singles looking for action.

Known for its "Natural State" theme, this LPGA event is attracting thousands of women for one long party with poolside romps, go-go dancers simulating sex onstage, and general debauchery not so commonly tolerated elsewhere.

This festival has its humble lesbian origins in 2007, when the owners of a successful California-based lesbian club attended the Northwest Arkansas golf tournament – and left, bored out of their minds.

"We only went because we knew one of the players...It was exhausting, all that walking, walking, walking in the rain and heat. We looked at each other and said, "Never again"."

Sensing an opportunity to create an alternative to the popular Palm Springs LPGA week of lesbian and gay fun, they started promoting hotel packages, music, and parties during the Northwest Arkansas LPGA weekend.

"The LPGA event in Northwest Arkansas has an aloft Hotel, Eureka Springs nearby, plus a fantastic art, food, and music festival taking place across the street, making it more than just a weekend of golf," says one lesbian friend.

The 2008 Northwest Arkansas LPGA event initially targeted golfers and spectators for in-between breaks.  The lesbian party is quickly morphing into a lesbian festival, largely due to, some claim, the closeted female golfing community, "comprising up to 60 percent of the crowd," as one local lesbian observer claims.

I am a gay woman, with many gay friends who work and live here. I am glad to see a newsletter acknowledge us.

I am also excited about the prospects of the LPGA event becoming a catalyst for attracting more gay women to the area.

The Unauthorized News for Northwest Arkansas

My name is Roger. Welcome to my blog.

My parents named me after the town in Northwest Arkansas where I was born and raised called Rogers, Arkansas.

We write about everything we see, smell, hear, and touch about living in the quaint little towns of Northwest Arkansas.

We've been made "famous" for hogs, chickens, trucks, but mostly for being the birthplace of the largest Chinese flea market outside of China.
