Privately Operated Golf Club in Oklahoma
Suitable for Beginners & Pros
A framed Elk City Daily News article dated March 15, 1955, hangs, mainly forgotten, but history never ignored, in the pro-shop, It describes how Johnny Johnson, a well known enthusiastic golfer, “never take ‘no’ for an answer” man, and then president of the Elk City Golf Association, and Joe Houch, a Texas pro and course designer, have a visit at the project that would become the last and current site, for the Elk City Golf Course (to view a large format picture of the article, click here). The course, designed and modified by Donald Sechrest as well, has always been a joint venture between the municipal government of Elk City and private citizens who are members at Elk City Golf & Country Club. As it stands, the golf course is laid out on public land, but privately operated by the elected Board of Directors of Elk City Golf & Country Club, a private club.
