TRAVEL • GOLF VACATIONS

OKLAHOMA

A

n hour outside of Dallas in Thackerville, Okla., is the WinStar World Casino and Resort. This is a world-class center for golf and gaming, with nine gaming plazas. Golf occupies 350 acres, made up of two award-winning courses, a state-of-theart golf academy with professional instructors teaching golfers at every level, a pro shop and clubhouse and a bar and grill. The WinStar Golf Academy comprises a large area of cutting-edge technologies and expert instructors. Visitors can train throughout the season. WinStar’s indoor hitting bays use 3D technologies such as K-Motion, which give golfers the ability to see their form in real time, providing dynamic footage and images that can be used to improve their swing. There’s also the About Golf feature, where a player can choose his or her own “golf worlds,” playing courses from St. Andrews to TPC Sawgrass. The huge and pristine golf area has a resort-style setting between the sandy shores of Oklahoma’s Red River and blackjack oaks. WinStar’s two championship 18-hole golf courses, Scissortail and Redbud, were designed by five-time PGA TOUR winner D.A. Weibring, with both courses providing an engaging challenge for golfers of all skill levels. The Scissortail Course has 4,843 to 7,192 playable yards, depending on skill level. The course puts to best use the natural formations of Oklahoma’s Red River Valley, making it uniquely fun and challenging. WinStar’s Redbud Course also gives players the opportunity to tailor course yardage to skill level. As one might expect, the course provides challenging holes that weave through the hills and native grasses of the Red River Valley. The combination of great golf courses coupled with the fun of gaming, fine dining and other entertainment options gives the WinStar World Casino and Resort plenty of appeal for a golf vacation.
