Architect Randy Hackenkemper (who worked for a time alongside Nicklaus Design then in partnership with Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish before setting out on his own in 1985) fashioned the 18-hole layout at Territory Golf & Country Club, on the outskirts of Duncan in Stephens County, with the course opening to members and their guests in 2003.

Bermuda fairways are set out within an expansive 640-acre residential property that features rocky outcrops, numerous ponds and the wandering waters of Stagestand Creek. The course is part of a master planned community but the housing elements built so far have had a minimal effect on the aesthetics of the surrounding landscape.

The par fives at Territory are all very strong holes, the 565-yard 2nd plays to a heavily sand and water-protected green, the 512-yard 7th leads to a raised putting surface that sits precariously on top of a ridge, and the 535-yard 15th features a green that’s guarded by a creek to the front of the putting surface.

There’s also an impressive 11-acre practice facility with three par three holes, each with multiple tee boxes and maintained to the same standard as the main course, a 15,000 square foot putting green, a driving range with bi-directional tees, and a short game area that includes a two-tiered green and bunker.

If I could characterize Territory in one word, it’s vast. The whole property is massive, as you really are in the middle of nowhere Oklahoma. The complex, which includes several buildings fit for different purposes, is a five-minute drive from the outskirts Duncan, a town of 22,000. There are no more than a dozen or two houses on site, and most of them are on the first, sixth, and ninth holes. The practice facility is second to none. It is also worth noting that the clubhouse staff was really accommodating. As for the course itself, the routing is terrific and no two holes look the same. The greens are really tricky in spurts, though, and it feels like you need to play Territory a few times to fully appreciate it. The fifth and 14th holes especially stick out in this regard from what I remember. Bounces can seem unfair on some shots, too. These criticisms are not to take anything away from the Randy Heckenhemper design: the good far outweighs the bad at Territory. The bunkers had just been redone in the months before I played, and the white sand is a welcome sight. A few of my favorite holes include the par three eighth, a beautiful downhill hole protected by a pond on the left, and the par five 11th, a true three-shotter in every sense that is as narrow as a hole you’ll find here. I’m really glad I played Territory, one of the best golf courses in Oklahoma.
