This course is an off the beaten path a pretty cool layout over looking the city of Tulsa. The greens were in great shape and the fringes burned/dead. The fairways are slanted sheets of concrete but in pretty good shape. The course is a value course and is a target golf approach to score well. It is a bit quirky on how the narrow fairways and criss crossing tee boxes all compete for space.

I play here at least once a week typically. It has some amazing holes and it is continually getting better. It’s not easy, typically not over crowded and very reasonable. I call it my home course, proudly!

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
