Katke-Cousins Golf Course

Quick Facts


Katke-Cousins Golf Course lies to the south of John Dodge Farmhouse, an extension of a 9-hole course John Dodge kept for his personal use.  All 18 holes were completed and opened to the university community during 1976. Funds for the course were provided by two major university donors, Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Katke and Mr. and Mrs. Harold Cousins.

Originally intended for OU student, faculty, and staff use only, the course has since expanded into a recreational resource all members of the community may enjoy.  It boasts a 72-par championship status and attracts a variety of donors and supporters for the OU President's Club.  It is also open to the public, from serious enthusiasts to beginners alike.

A root cellar in previous use as part of Meadow Brook Estate was converted into the two-story clubhouse, which features a lounge and grill, pro shop, locker and shower room, and office space.
