Amphibians are small vertebrates that need water, or a moist environment, to survive.

The species in this group include frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts. All can breathe and absorb water through their very thin skin.

Amphibians also have special skin glands that produce useful proteins. Some transport water, oxygen, and carbon dioxide either into or out of the animal. Others fight bacteria or fungal infections. And at least one—in each species—is used for defense.

To warn potential predators, the most toxic amphibians are also the most brightly colored. Curare [kyoo-RAW-ree], for example, is found on the skin of colorful poison dart frogs. Another special feature of most amphibians is their egg-larva-adult life cycle. The larvae are aquatic and free-swimming—frogs and toads at this stage are called tadpoles. At a certain size, the young develop limbs and lungs. Some also lose their tails. Eventually, they hop or climb out of the water as adults, and spend the rest of their lives on land. This process is known as metamorphosis.

Like reptiles, amphibians are cold-blooded. Because of their special skin, they require very specific living conditions. Too much sun can damage their cells. Too much wind can dry their skin and dehydrate the animal. As a result, amphibians are the first to die off when their habitats are disturbed or contaminated with chemicals like weed killers. This is the main reason over half of all frog species are in danger of extinction.

It’s been a while since I’ve made a blog post, mostly because it’s been a long, hard journey to get to this point. But we are so excited to share what’s going on. We finally closed on our loan! This was the loan needed to complete the golf course. We had many delays due to Covid, shortage of appraisers, and shortage of bank employees able to process information but, we push through it and made it happen. You will see that we have removed the building closest to the street, and the golf course is already taking shape.  We have hired professional golf course builders, Mini Golf Solutions, out of Florida, to construct the course and they have made great strides. We will be open by the end of September, which will be perfect weather for mini golf. Please take the time to join our newsletter to get progress information on the course, special events, exclusive offers, and coupons. We promise not to spam you! Just click on the sign-up button in the menu of the website. Also, please visit and follow our Toad Suck Mini Golf Facebook page and Instagram.

We are pleased to announce the Ground Breaking Festival for Toad Suck Mini Golf! We know you all have been waiting and the day has finally arrived. There will be delicious food and fun games, unique face painting and creative balloon artistry, and most importantly, we will have an inflatable 9 hole mini golf course!! Bring the whole family!

When:    Saturday, May 22, 2021

Time:     11:00 – 4:00

Where:  500 US HWY 64 E. in Conway

The location of the NEW Toad Suck Mini Golf


We wanted to share the story of #ToadSuckTodd&ToadSuckTerry again, in case anyone had any concerns or questions about their specific species. After researching frogs and toads, more than I ever thought I would in my entire life time, we have finally reached a decision. (Yes for real this time.) We decided on a White Tree Frog! I know, I know, they are frogs. HOWEVER, they identify as Conway toads!! PLUS, I might add, they are the spitting image of the Toad Suck Daze logo!! BOTH are extremely handsome!!! We picked these little fellows because they will be fun to watch. Remember, they identify as toads, so don’t use the F**G word, it hurts their feelings!!! They are easy to care for. You can hold them, they don’t bite (unlike the other said amphibian I almost got) AND did I mention how handsome they are?????

Arkansas doesn’t have a shortage of unusual town names. There’s Fifty-Six, Pickles Gap, Greasy Corner and Goobertown, but you will always get people’s attention when you mention Toad Suck.

In 2012, FindMyPast.com surveyed its users in seven English speaking countries and asked them to pick the “most embarrassing or unfortunate town name” from a short list of American towns. Toad Suck came out on top, beating out other heavy contenders such as Monkey’s Eyebrow, Belchertown and Hooker.  (For some perspective on the entries, Hell and Intercourse didn’t even make the top 10.) So we’re seriously famous now.

Those of us who have grown up in these parts and are familiar with Toad Suck probably don’t give the name a second thought. But for someone traveling through Arkansas on I-40, the sign for Toad Suck Park can be entertaining enough to make them pull over and snap a selfie next to it to amuse their friends and post on on social media.


With Toad Suck Daze right here in Faulkner county, it’s high time you learned how this little bend in the Arkansas River came to be named Toad Suck so that you can impress your friends with this trivia.

A Google search provided several sources of information. Not all of them are reliable but at least they’re entertaining.

Spoiler #1: The jury is still out as to the definitive history of the origin of Toad Suck.

Spoiler #2: It has nothing to do with consuming amphibians as the name would have you think.

The most popular and most colorful legend says that when barges that traveled up and down the Arkansas River, it was not uncommon for them to run aground at this location when the water level got too low. (It’s true. This spot on the Arkansas River had been described more than once as “six inches deep and half a mile wide.”)

To pass the time, the captains and crew often frequented the saloon that was just up the hill and drank themselves silly. (Kudos to the enterprising entrepreneur who conveniently built a tavern there.)  The locals were aghast at the sight of the drunken sailors who had “sucked on the bottle until they were swollen up like toads.” Hence the name.

But that explanation seems too easy.

Because the early French explorers left their influence across much of Arkansas (Petit Jean and Ozark from “Aux Arc” are prime examples), there is speculation that the name Toad Suck is a corruption of some sort of French phrase. However, just exactly what phrase is still up for debate. Some suggestions are “eau d’sucre” which means sweet water, or “chateau d’sucre” or “taudis sucre” meaning house of sugar, possibly referencing either the rum that was consumed at the tavern, or perhaps the sugar cane and sorghum that were grown on the banks nearby, or the barn or outbuildings used to store the cane and sorghum harvest.

Actually, the theory that probably makes the most sense has to do with river terminology. There’s a somewhat obscure river term for a protected eddy along a riverbank called a “suck.” When the river recedes, frogs and tadpoles can be easily seen in that shallow water at the river’s edge. It wouldn’t be too far-fetched to imagine a riverboat captain hollering at his crew to try to avoid that “toad suck” over yonder when they were in danger of running aground. Old maps also show areas called “bear suck” and a “cow suck” so apparently that was a fairly common descriptor back in the day.

And there you have it. While the mystery of how Toad Suck got its name hasn’t been conclusively solved, we have a memorable town name and some quirky stories to explain it away.

If you’re a confident golfer, you might be tempted to challenge your friends to a round of putt putt golf. Golfers are great at putt putt, right? You might even begin to wonder – can playing mini golf make you an even better putter?

Mini golf is a popular pastime for many people who have never even picked up a golf club. That doesn’t mean they can sink their ball in one stroke the first time they play on a course. The skills are not exactly parallel. In fact, some golfers might worry that playing can harm their golf game.

How it Hurts

While it seems like good practice, the conditions on a putt putt course are very different from real greens. The speed of fake grass is nothing like actual grass. Don’t be surprised if real putting makes your mini game worse, and vice versa.

In addition, your putter at home will be significantly better quality than the mass-made cheap neon putters used in putt putt. Your putter and the mini golf club are weighted very differently. You’ll have to make some adjustments when you switch between them.

Also note the putt putt balls are not Titleists, or anything close.

To combat these issues, do some practice putts on the practice greens at the course before you play 9 or 18 holes. You should reset your swing to be for your club and for the real grass.

How it Helps

While you might need to make some adjustments to your swing when you switch between golfs, mini golf can teach you some valuable skills that you can apply to your course game.

Playing mini golf requires a lot of strategy, mainly in analyzing the slope of the putt putt course and the obstacles. This can assist you in analyzing the slope of the greens and strategizing for your long game. You will become a better analyst of golf course positioning if you’re used to playing the “mini version.”

If anything, you may find that by practicing regular putting you will get better at mini golf. Ensure that your skills are first and foremost suited for the real golf greens. After that, note how your practice on the course translates. Once you’ve practiced real course putting extensively, invite your friends out to mini golf. You’ll blow them all out of the water.

Playing mini golf is also a great way to get your children to participate in your sport. If you want to raise the next Tiger Woods, read How to Get Your Kids Into Golf.
