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.
The Gaillardia Country Club is a renowned and classy golf club in Oklahoma City. The course is an 18-hole regulation length golf course.

Membership avails you of excellent facilities right from fine dining options to fitness centers and tennis grounds. This place makes a perfect getaway on a lazy weekend.
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.
