Great value and a great place to practice your short game. The only issue that I have is with other players, specifically older regulars that feel they own the place. I've been here twice in the 3+ years that I've lived in the metro and it's been the same thing, players hitting their shots up against you as you are putting or attempting to take your second shot. The green fees are the real draw here though seeing as this is the only OKC course that offers a true 9-hole rate. I recommend it to anyone that wants to play but is limited on time just make sure you pack your patience ;-)
I love this golf course! I started playing golf maybe about 6-7 years ago. I have some older gentleman friends who actually got me started into golf and this was the first course that I ever played. Even back then I loved how layed back this golf course was and I also loved how the holes weren't extremely difficult. The staff is great and are usually older gentleman who are wise beyond their years (even outside of golf). I usually see people I know up at this course and even started my kids in the First Tee program at this golf course. As I have developed over the years into a better golfer (still suck) I favor other courses because of the variety of holes over Stewart. I will say one thing though, Stewart will always be my go to course when I can't quite get 18 holes in but I i still wanna play that day. The course is sometimes packed on the wknd but if you can take off work a bit early on the weekday then you should be able to get in with no problem. Great course and I highly recommend it to everyone!
9 hole course. Friendly staff. Greens are soft. Rough isn't that rough. Good place for just getting outside and playing a quick round. Can be very busy during peak times though.
Nine-hole golf courses vary greatly in quality. Some test your game, while others are merely pitch and putt. Located just east of downtown, James E Stewart Golf Course is the former. Players of all levels will enjoy this course.
There is one hole that is good enough to be a part of any course in Oklahoma. Number eight is a par-5 measuring 540 yards. All down the right side of the hole is a lake. The left side is protected by four large Maple trees and some cedar trees. After a good drive, a shot of 180 to 200 yards is needed to lay up because the lake veers in front, to the left, and finally behind the green. Tall native grass and stone adorn the lake near the green. It's a good test, which I failed btw , making a triple bogey.
This layout is a fun challenge and the course was in good shape the day I played. Next time I want to play just nine-holes, I will be back.
