Located west of Sapulpa in Drumright, a short distance from Tulsa, this museum of local history is housed, along with the local Chamber of Commerce, in a 1916 Santa Fe Railroad depot. The tracks are no longer here, but the history remains. Both indoor and outdoor exhibits showcase the oil and railroad history of this town. The museum also hosts various seasonal evening events. Students of local history will be enlightened, and children will love the railroad cars and old machinery. Group tours are offered by appointment.
This is one of the prettiest courses around. It is also one the more high-tech courses. There are computers in every golf cart, which are linked to a Global Positioning Satellite system. The GPS system will tell you precisely how far the cart is from the hole, how far you will have to hit the ball to get it over the water, and all sorts of other cool things you always wanted to know when on the course.
Although just minutes from downtown, this beautiful public course is surrounded by beautiful Oklahoma country. It is one of the more challenging courses around, with all of the obstacles and tall native grass in the roughs. Practice on the putting green and driving range, and after you play, enjoy a cold beer in the snack bar.
Martin Park provides a little natural respite for Oklahoma City's denizens with its nearly three miles of foot trails amongst thick foliage and plenty of local fauna. Visitors can reserve nature guides who describe the region's natural history or they can come alone to enjoy the tranquility. Either option notwithstanding, the park has informational stands along the way that tell you about native plants and animals. A couple of other relaxing activities include feeding turtles in the freshwater pond or taking a moment to bird watch. Highlights for the kids include 'Prairie Dog-Town' and the 'Squirrel Observatory', both are informative and fun. Whether you are alone or with the family, an afternoon strolling through the park is a great way to unwind. Admission is free.
Have you been saying for years that you are going to take scuba diving lessons? Well, it is time to fish or cut bait, because here is a great place to do it. This scuba shop is different in that they sell all the equipment you need for recreational diving, and there are three pools on-site (indoor and outdoor) where their professional staff will teach you how to dive. Kids as young as 10-years old can take lessons, too.
Nothing is more exciting than a day at the races, especially when your horse is winning on the track. In addition to watching the ponies run, you can enjoy fine dining at the on-site Silks Restaurant or catch the show from your own personal box seat in the Club One lounge. Check out their 'Twilight Thursdays', where you can place bets, sample appetizers and drink for one great low price. This place is also popular for the after work crowd, where people come to the Bricktown Brewery and Henry Hudson's Pub, both perfect spots to have a drink and not necessarily gamble.
Just south of Remington Park you will find this beautiful public championship golf course. There are 30 sand traps and five water hazards on each of the 18-hole courses, and the slope rating is 120 on the east course, 121 on the west course. There is a driving range and putting green on which to practice. Also enjoy the restaurant, which serves beer as the only alcoholic beverage, or snack shop after a long day of golfing.
This public pool is a great place to take the kids on a hot summer day. There are lots of fun activities for kids of all ages like diving boards, slides and sprinklers. There is a kiddie pool for the toddlers and babies, and a great big pool for everyone else. And unlike most of the other public pools around, this pool is open earlier in the day (11am), so you can swim and get back in the air conditioning before the temperature peaks in late afternoon.
The tree-lined fairways of this 18-hole course make it a little tougher than some other courses, but it also adds to the beauty of the game here. At just 15 minutes from downtown Oklahoma City and two miles from Tinker Air Force Base, this public course is in a great location for anyone in the downtown or Midwest City areas.
City dwellers consider this park to be one of their favorites and it is always bursting at the seams with people. This place has it all, there are playgrounds, picnic tables, soccer and softball fields, a golf course, and a nine-mile jogging and biking trail, it is easy to see why it's so packed. Most afternoons you can see kites or model airplanes flying high overhead and colorful sailboats cruising along Lake Hefner, which is adjacent to the park.
This well-designed public golf course sits on the south side of beautiful Lake Hefner. The obstacles like bunkers and ponds on each of the two 18-hole courses pose challenges that are not too difficult. If you want to practice, there are some par-three holes where you can hone your stroke. You can also practice on the driving range, where the shop provides putt and pitch greens as well as sand trap practice with the wedge.
