FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas golf team ventures to Zionsville, Ind., on Saturday to take on a strong field at the Wolf Run Intercollegiate.
The Razorbacks join a 10-team field hosted by the University of Indiana at the Wolf Run Golf Club. The Wolf Run layout was ranked as the 20th-best course in the county according to Golfweek’s America’s 100 Best Modern Courses. The field will play 36 holes on Saturday with the final 18 holes scheduled for Sunday.
