Connecting people to the community is what we are all about. At the heart of our organization are our volunteers. They are a vital part of the Tulsa County Parks system and we rely on their time, energy, and talents to help us create a better community.

Community & Park Councils

Parks, recreation services and facilities are a very important part of enhancing the quality of life in our neighborhoods. Take time out for leisure. Visit our beautiful parks, trails, tennis and golf facilities. The benefits of parks and recreation to our community are truly endless. Sincerely, Richard Bales, Tulsa County Parks Director

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.

ADULTS

Weekly scheduled evening clinics for adults (in-season).

JUNIORS Monthly scheduled Kid’s Clinics lasting 4-5 days each (in-season). During the school year, clinics (and sometimes transportation) are provided for elementary/middle school age students from public schools in Tulsa County by request. Some of the schools serving some of Tulsa’s most economically disadvantaged children have participated and some have developed on-going programs. Many Junior High and High School golf programs use O’Brien as their practice facility.

O’Brien has a three-hole layout incorporating 14 tee-box locations for par 3’s, par 4’s and a par 5. A driving range with one of the largest all natural grass tee-boxes in the area. The target greens are over an acre of real grass with three lakes that stream around the course and practice areas. A bucket of balls is available for $3. 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. Qualified on-site golf instructor is available.
