Muskogee Country Club is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Muskogee, Oklahoma.
The Club was founded in 1903, as the Muskogee Town and Country Club. In the summer of 1907, the membership bought the hundred acre Garland farm, house and all, located where the Club is now, moved in and started a nine-hole golf course. So golf came to Muskogee only nineteen years after it first came to America, and theirs is the oldest course in the state still at its original site. Leslie Brownlee, a Scotch golf professional at Fort Smith, laid out the course with sand greens. Shortly afterward he went home to Scotland and brought back with him a young golfer named Bill Nichols of Edinburgh. Bill took over as the Club's first pro in the spring of 1908, and by May of that year had the course completed and open for play.
Thirty acres more were acquired by the Club two years later, and in 1911, the golf course was enlarged to a full eighteen holes. In 1924, the whole course was redesigned by Perry Maxwell. At that time, the old sand greens were replaced with Bermuda. The change over to bent grass greens was made in 1936.
A traditional course, The Muskogee Country Club is lined with mature, native trees with undulating fairways and challenging bent grass greens.
Par for the 6,740-yard course is 71.
Muskogee Country Club was reportedly sold to a group of local investors in 2011 for just over $1 million. Course income was reported to be $60,000 a month, and expenses were $75,000 a month to run the club. As a business, the purchase may not seem to make economic sense today, but when you add up assets: club house, tennis courts, pool, parking lots, equipment barn and 130 plus acres it seems like a bargain.
