The Links at Oklahoma City Golf and Athletic Club
- Location: Oklahoma City
- Type: Public, non-muni (part of Lindsey Golf Network)
- Course Review:
- (9 holes): My “home” course. I can’t say enough good things about this small but very challenging and creatively designed course. Crowded on Saturdays, but rarely long waits. No tee times are necessary, just show up. I’ve never waited more than 15 minutes for a cart.This is also a GREAT course to walk, with the only long hike being the walk between the greens of hole #3 and the tees of hole #4.
- Cost to play: Non-member green fees are $10 for 9 holes. Cart fees (which apply to members, non-members, and non-playing riders) are $7 per person for 9 holes, but this course is definitely walkable and a good number of players are walking. The only long walk is between holes #3 and #4.
- Pro Shop: Nice folks work at the desk. They sell used golf balls but at a relatively high price.
- Food, Drink and other Amenities: They have soft drinks and water for sale at the club house, as well as a vending machine with a limited assortment of snacks. They also allow outside food and drink (3.2 ABW beer and soft drinks) on the course. The only restrooms are at the club house, but this isn’t a problem since this course loops back to the club house after holes #3 and 7. And as a big bonus, members get to use the outdoor pool in the summer months, which makes for a nice post-golf cool-down.

- Special Note:This course is part of the Lindsey Golf Network , so a non-resident annual membership at one course in the course gives you have free green fees (but not carts) at the other courses. This is one of the best deals in town, as a non-resident family membership at The Links at OKC is currently running $650/year, which includes the bonus of access to the outdoor pool, gym, tennis, disc golf, basketball, etc. One important detail — it is best to get your membership at a 9 hole Lindsey Course, as the 18 hole courses (i.e. Norman) are more expensive. — Also I really like being able to take a quick swim after a hot summer round, which makes the membership an extra fun deal.
- Tips for playing: For beginners like myself, it is highly recommended to bring lots of balls, preferably some you don’t mind loosing. On my first game here I lost SIX balls, but lately I’m losing average of only 1-2 balls per round. For more detailed hole-by-hole playing tips, please check out this page.
