Lincoln Park Golf Course in Oklahoma City will finally have a clubhouse to match the quality of its two courses, regarded as among the best public courses in the state.
Groundbreaking took place earlier this week on a new 27,000-square foot clubhouse that will replace the crumbling edifice that opened in 1961.
“This clubhouse was old when I got here in 1990,” said Steve Carson, director of golf. “It’s well past its prime. All the mechanical parts, if they haven’t failed already, are on the verge of failure.”
The new clubhouse is being built with $7.5 million in golf revenue bond sales and $2.5 million from a city general obligation bond earmarked for the clubhouse.
