The Territory Climbs Golfweek’s 'Top 100 Residential Golf Courses’ in America List

Southwest Oklahoma Golf and Residential Community’s Latest ‘Best-of’ Acclaim Highlighted in the Wall Street Journal
(Southwest Oklahoma) – The Territory, an award-winning golf and residential community near the quaint, progressive town of Duncan, today announces that it has once again been named a “Top 100 Residential Golf Course” in America. The Wall Street Journal recently published the rankings with The Territory (No. 37) moving up one spot despite newer residential courses debuting in 2008.

This ranking further enhances The Territory’s reputation as a top-of-the-bell-curve course and community. The Territory stands side by side with internationally known courses at Isleworth (No. 52) – Tiger Woods’ home course – Kiawah Island, Pronghorn and La Quinta.

Rick and Barbara Braught developed The Territory to introduce a casual yet elegant golf residential community which is family friendly and set in the unspoiled beauty of the region.

“Being recognized as one of the top residential courses in America is testament to the hard work and dedication that has gone into The Territory since Day 1 of the planning process and continues on a daily basis,” says owner Rick Braught. “Our ongoing mission is to provide a top-notch golf, residential and lifestyle experience at The Territory.”

Distinguishing The Territory from a vast majority of residential courses across the country – many of which also are honored with Top 100 praise – the Randy Heckenkemper design feels like a golf course first, and a residential development second. The golf experience remains the focus from the first tee shot to the final putt.

The Territory – a modified target-style design that unfolds over rolling hills and through fields of native vegetation – stretches to 7,100 yards from the tips and features five sets of tees. A state-of-the-art training facility and a three-hole short course add to the golf-related chops, while fine culinary dishes are the norm at the Prairie House. The swimming pool and activity courts are often venues for planned events or a break from the day-to-day grind.

The “Top 100 Residential Courses” list was published in partnership with Golfweek Magazine, which sends hundreds of course rating panelists around the country annually to identify the best courses in their respective categories. Golfweek and the Wall Street Journal are partnering to provide this valuable information to their combined readerships.
