Parting Shots

Remington
When we think of an event in American history, chances are the mental picture formed will have a gun in it. It isn't necessarily a military picture but one of average people going about their day-to-day activities. Our picture of the pilgrim isn't complete without a matchlock "fowling piece" over the shoulder of one or more of the men. The pistol will always have romantic appeal for Americans because of the part it played in the settling of our country. We may feel that "playing cowboy" is not a very dignified adult occupation, but few of us fail to respond to the exploits of the men who won the west. All of them were not admirable men, but each of them played his part in the development of the new country - and each had one constant companion, the pistol. Life depended on the gun. The gun provided protection, food and about the only sense of security available at the time. It was important.

The main pages are shown at the left with the exception of: Golf And Other Non-Contact Sports and Spectator And Participant Sport [Home]. (Pages may be in other headings and not shown.) Back in the old days, almost every website had a sitemap where they listed out all the pages. Our parting shots page will give you a little more information about Golf And Other Non-Contact Sports. If you've become lost or frustrated, you can access all pages directly from this page.

Oklahoma is roughly divided into two regions. The east and northeast part of the state is founded on rolling hills amidst ample lakes, rivers and watersheds. Heading west about halfway to Oklahoma City, one notices a change in the topography, and the soil becomes red. Hills begin to smooth out, and the watersheds come less frequently. The people are supremely friendly, and can be unexpectedly sophisticated. Whatever you thought of Oklahoma, if you haven't golfed there before, be prepared for a pleasant surprise.

Two impressive, championship courses are waiting for you at Lincoln Park Golf Course in Oklahoma City. The East course at Lincoln Park is sure to test your skills and is certain to provide an enjoyable round of golf every time you play it. The West course is the featured golf course at Lincoln Park. At nearly 6600 yards from the black tournament tees, this par-71 course is one you don't want to miss. The par-5 #1 hole is a dogleg left that vaults you into this thoroughly gorgeous and challenging 18-hole masterpiece. Both of these courses are always maintained in tournament condition.
