The War Memorial Golf Course is a mess thanks to damage from its use for parking and tailgating during the rain-soaked Arkansas football game Saturday at War Memorial Stadium.
City parks officials will be assessing the damage to begin repairs today, KARK/Fox 16 reported. The cost isn’t known yet. It has reached $10,000 in some years past. The stadium will pay for the repairs.
In years past, multiple Razorback games could inflict more damage. The next Arkansas game at War Memorial isn’t scheduled until Missouri at the end of the 2019 season.
UPDATE: Arkansas used the stadium rent-free this year, but Kevin Crass, chairman of the Stadium Commission, says the state Parks and Tourism Department has already gotten in touch with the city to pledge state help in repairing the golf course.
