The facility opened in the fall of 2006, with the goal of serving North Tulsa County by providing a facility at a fair price for people to learn and improve their skills in the game of golf. The facility provides a non-intimidating environment for golfers of all ages and skill levels. Group lessons are available for the beginning golfer, as well as a number of golf camps for junior golfers ages 8-17. Introductory clinics are available for players of every age group and level. Individual lessons can be scheduled by calling the golf shop. O’Brien has a three-hole layout with 14 tee box locations incorporating par 3’s, 4’s and a par 5. The driving range has an elevated tee box of over an acre of real grass (no mats). Additionally, there is a practice bunker, chipping target green and a large putting green. The entire facility is surrounded by three lakes and a stream that all come into play. Take advantage of our “combo special” and receive a bucket of balls for the driving range and play three holes for only $5. There is an air-conditioned club house where beverages and snacks are available. O’Brien Golf Training Center believes that a proper introduction to the game of golf has the potential to positively impact the life of a child long-term. Our facility implements “no child turned away”, regardless of their financial circumstances.

ZUMBA GOLD

Zumba gold targets the largest growing segment of the population: Baby boomers. It takes the Zumba formula and modifies the moves while bringing down the pace. What stays the same are all the elements the Zumba Fitness-Party is known for - the zesty Latin music like Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia and Reggaeton; the exhilarating, easy-to-follow moves; and the invigorating, party-like atmosphere. The Zumba Gold class is the perfect fit, and the right choice for those just starting their journey to a fit and healthy lifestyle. It’s a dance-fitness class that feels friendly a most of all, FUN!
