Patriot Golf Club opened for play in 2010. The course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr.
The diversity of the terrain is unique. Views that stretch 30-miles, virgin forests, jagged limestone walls that climb to heights of 150-feet. The layout seamlessly transitions through four distinct landforms: limestone canyon, lowlands meadow, uplands prairie and woodlands.
The course starts from a launchpad tee 140 feet above the fairway floor of a par 5 routed through a canyon. Heading to the second tee, the land opens up so that the fairway spills out into a vast meadow. The course ascends gradually, weaves back through rugged canyon, and at the eighth hole again transitions into open prairie. The par-4 12th takes golfers from woodlands at the tee and fairway back to limestone outcrops at the green.
Each hole was named in honor of a famous patriot. No. 1, for instance, is George Washington. No. 18 is Dwight David Eisenhower. It's unusual in that it has 19 holes because play will alternate between two par-3 No 6s â€” 6A and 6B. The golf club is the vision of Dan Rooney, an F16 fighter pilot for the Air National Guard and PGA golfer and is a partnership with the Folds of Honor Foundation.
Three tee times daily set aside for one-time public access at $150 per player, with 10 percent donated to Folds of Honor.

The club is still relatively low in membership compared to other clubs in the surrounding area. The golf shop, locker room, and bar/food area are small, but like I said membership is still small. I believe the club has plans to expand once membership increases. The course features dramatic scenery. First hole drops a few hundred feet onto a par 5 looking out to downtown Tulsa (15-20 miles away). 18th hole is my favorite, dog-leg left over a canyon. A good drive onto the fairway, which slopes towards the canyon, will set you up with a nice 160-200yd shot over the canyon to a green surrounded by sand (have lost countless golf balls on this hole). Staff is friendly, and service is above par. Highly recommend this course to anyone visiting Tulsa or the surrounding area.
