Jimmie Austin Golf Club at The University of Oklahoma
4 Ransom Drive,
Norman, OK 73019
Home course of the University of Oklahoma Sooners
Originally designed by architect and native Oklahoman Perry Maxwell in 1951, it was redesigned by Jimmie Austin in 1996. World-renowned course architect Robert Cupp was able to keep the classic elegance of the course Maxwell had envisioned, while upgrading the intensity of the terrain to offer a challenging experience for all golfers.
The rich heritage of the grounds of the Jimmie Austin Golf Club dates back to the early 1940s when the land was home to a U.S. Navy recreational facility. Now more than 80 years later, it is recognized as one of the top collegiate golf courses in the country.
The Coe Training Center has gained a reputation as a model facility. The 7,000-square-foot, indoor-outdoor facility is the home to three hitting bays with a video system. It features an expansive outdoor practice area including two satellite chipping greens, as well as a 12,000-square-foot bent grass chipping area with seven bunkers to cover a myriad of sand and stance possibilities. There is also a bent grass and Bermuda grass putting green.
The course is open to the public.
