Oak Tree National

With a longstanding history of exceptional golf, Oak Tree National borrows its name from the majestic oak tree that sits on the 5th hole of the golf and country club's course stretching over 640 acres of picturesque countryside.

Founded in 1976 by Ernie Vossler and Joe Walser, Oak Tree National features a Pete Dye-designed golf course regarded as the finest inland course he has ever built. Factoring in Oak Tree National's hilly terrain and Oklahoma's notorious winds, the championship course presents an unmatched challenge to even the most serious of golfers. Throughout its history, Oak Tree National has been host to several major tournaments including the 1984 U.S. Amateur, the 1988 PGA Championship, the 2000 PGA Club Pro Championship, the 2006 Senior PGA Championship and the upcoming 2014 Senior Open.

The course is complemented by a premier training facility, led by noted golf instructor E. J. Pfister, offering an unrivaled destination for golfers searching for improvement in their game. Oak Tree National is also home to a nationally recognized fitness center, led by Robert Stoner, specializing in fitness programs and injury rehab for golfers.
