The Territory Named 'Top Residential Golf Course’ in America

Latest ‘Best-of’ Acclaim Garnered by Southwest Oklahoma Golf and Residential Community for Third Consecutive Year
(Southwest Oklahoma) – The Territory Golf & Country Club, an award-winning course and residential community near the quaint, progressive town of Duncan, today announces it has been named to Golfweek’s “Top 100 Residential Golf Courses” in America list.

Honored by the publication for the third consecutive year, The Territory joins renowned properties such as Kiawah Island, Pronghorn and Isleworth – Tiger Woods’ home course. This continued recognition further enhances The Territory’s reputation as a top-of-the-bell-curve course and community.

Working side-by-side with noted architect Randy Heckenkemper, owners Rick and Barbara Braught developed The Territory to introduce a casual, yet elegant golf residential community with a family friendly focus to the unspoiled beauty of the region.

“Our vision from Day 1 was to ensure The Territory would be a place for our children’s children to call home – this is golf and community as it should be,” says Rick Braught. “While the accolades are very rewarding, our greatest feeling is knowing our members, guests and friends who’ve laid down roots here are enjoying all there is to experience at The Territory.”

A modified target-style design that unfolds over rolling hills and through fields of native vegetation, The Territory stretches to 7,100 yards from the tips and features five sets of tees to accommodate all levels of play. A state-of-the-art training facility and a three-hole short course add to the golf-related amenities, while fine culinary dishes by Chef Keith Zinke 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.

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

Golfweek Magazine sends hundreds of course rating panelists around the country annually to identify the best courses in their respective categories.
