Golf courses in Norman will reopen May 1, bringing the last major metropolitan area that had not announced a planned reopening into the flow of courses that will be open this weekend.
That decision affects The Trails CC, the Jimmie Austin University of Oklahoma Golf Course, Westwood Park Golf Course, Cobblestone Creeek and the Links at Norman. Belmar CC, although it has a Norman address, is outside the city limits and has been open to members.
Jimmie Austin is open to members and their guests only. Westwood Park will not be reopening its driving range immediately.
Pryor Creek Golf Course announced it was reopening Monday. Sapulpa is reopening May 1. All public and private courses in Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Edmond will be open as of May 1. One course that has not announced its reopening is Cherokee Hills at the Hard Rock Casino in Verdigris. Director of Golf Jeff Jarrett said today that he expects to know more later this week. The casino is temporarily closed as well. Also both of the Cherokee tribe-owned courses in Tahlequah remain closed for now, including Cherokee Trails and Cherokee Springs.
WOGA Senior Amateur canceled
The Women’s Oklahoma Golf Association Senior State Amateur scheduled for May 18-19 at Tulsa Country Club has been canceled.
In a note to the WOGA membership, president Susan Ferguson said since most of the usual participants were over 65, there was concern for the health of the members. Also with the club’s restaurant facilities either closed or limited, the social aspect of the championship would be limited as well.
