My Favorite 18 hole Oklahoma Courses

I play a lot more 9 hole rounds than 18 hole rounds, but the days that I have enough time to play 18 holes are good days. The following rankings come from some of those awesome days of 18 holes of golf, with my rankings on a 25 point scale (here’s an explanation of how the JMBGolf.com ratings system works)

My Favorite Oklahoma 9 Hole or Less Golf Courses

I’m a big fan of 9 hole courses, as playing all of the holes is much easier to pull off with a busy schedule than a full 18 hole round, but also because the shorter distances make for an easier round if you want to forgo the cart. And finally there is the issue of cost, with many 9 hole courses being a bargain.

So, here’s my list of all of the 9 hole or less golf courses I’ve played in Oklahoma, with my rankings on a 25 point scale (here’s an explanation of how the JMBGolf.com ratings system works)
