The best golf courses in Oklahoma
When thinking of Oklahoma golf, it's hard not to think of Perry Maxwell. The Oklahoma native was one of the great golf course architects of the 1920s and '30s, and was arguably the most successful designer working through the Great Depression. He designed over 30 courses in the state, including a handful with his son, Press, and five of those make this year's ranking, beginning with his landmark design at Southern Hills in Tulsa, host of numerous major championships (the 2022 PGA Championship being the latest) and occupant of the top spot in Oklahoma since we've published state rankings. His most personal course, however, is Dornick Hills, entering the list at number 13. It was Maxwell's first venture into architecture, built on family land, and the subject of numerous revisions over the years.
