The Territory Bolsters Staff with Addition of Talented Golf Professional
(Southwest Oklahoma) – The Territory Golf and Country Club, an award-winning property just outside the town of Duncan, announces the addition of Assistant Golf Professional Casey Harbour to its staff.
Harbour, a native of Kansas City, Kansas, was a four-time first team Golf Academic All-Big 12 selection in golf while at the University of Kansas, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration. He was also twice named an Academic All-American by the National Golf Coaches Association of America before continuing his education with a master’s degree in sports studies. In 1999, Harbour won the Kansas Open and in 2003 he claimed the Kansas Amateur title, as well as Kansas Player of the Year.
“The addition of a skilled and dedicated golf professional like Casey to our team at The Territory is extremely exciting,” says General Manager Tim Johnson. “He brings a wealth of knowledge to our staff, and members and guests will benefit greatly from his experience.”
Harbour, who most recently spent four years competing on the Tight Lies Tour, Adams Tour and Hooters Tour as a professional golfer, will have a wide range of responsibilities at The Territory. In addition to assisting with the junior golf program, he will conduct individual and group lessons, help with the high school teams, and join in planning, preparing and putting on golf tournaments.
The Territory – a modified target-style layout designed by Randy Heckenkemper – was named a Top 50 Residential Course by Golfweek and one of Oklahoma’s best courses by Golf Digest. The course features multiple tees to accommodate any skill level and boasts a state-of-the-art practice facility and three-hole short course where Harbour, Johnson and Head Golf Professional Donavan Grahn conduct instruction for those looking to improve their game.
The Territory recently expanded its stay-and-play packages with a third on-site home to host visitors. The luxurious, graciously appointed accommodations feature two-to-four spacious bedrooms, living room, full kitchen and baths. Package pricing per person is:
• Single: $275 per night
• Double: $225 per night
• Triple: $195 per night
• Foursome: $175 per night
A growing residential development where organic architecture – wood, windows, stone, light and natural elements – themes prevail, The Territory is flush with amenities like the Prairie House – headed by Chef Keith Zinke – and myriad outdoor activities. The setting is golf-first, as opposed to many properties where homes encroach on the course, and the game remains the focus from the first tee shot to the final putt.
