I have played here more times than I can count. I live nearby and this course has been reworked a little in the last couple of years. It is even better now than it was before. Keep it play and don't get too aggressive and you will be rewarded. If you hit it out of play on most holes, it is more than likely gone. Great views of Downtown Tulsa skyline from #1 and #10. #11 if the "famous cliff hole". It's probably a 4 to 5 story drop to the green. If you haven't played here before, you owe it to yourself when in Tulsa.

Ben, the golf pro, is an absolute pleasure to work with. The course is almost always in perfect condition for the time of year. The kitchen and kitchen staff are the best in Tulsa area. Tvs in the dining area, friendly guys/gals, absolutely cannot ask for a better staff all around. Course is challenging and forgiving in the same sentence. Great place to be. Great place to golf. Great staff all around. NONE better on a public course.

This course is very interesting with the hills and cliffs. The only issue we ran into was the carts. There are a lot of steep areas of the course and the carts struggled. The steepest Hill it was all the way to the floor with the brakes and that just kept it from getting out of control. Plus the parking brake wouldn’t hold it on the hills. That aside, it’s a beautiful course

The Canyons at Blackjack Ridge is a shotmakers course: think about a hole, then choose your shot carefully. Good scores are available. Multiple short par 4 with bling tee shots, 100 foot elevation change on par 3, several greens break with the local terrain; not what you think you see. Fun challenges.

My hat is off for the superintendent and his staff - beautiful conditions on a heavily played facility. Excellent greens free of Bermuda and goose grass, carpet like, reasonable speed, smooth, true breaks. Staff is exceptionally courteous to players - great job guys.

I drive 45 miles to the course and wish I lived closer to enjoy a membership. I'll be back.

It was a very enjoyable round. I am so glad the pro shop allowed me to go off early with a group that had played the course before. Several of the holes have blind tee shots and I would not have known the line without the help. Greens were fast and smooth. The fairways were wide and well maintained.
