About Lakeside Golf Course

Designed by Oklahoma State Golf Coach Labron Harris in 1945, Lakeside is Stillwater's favorite golf destination. Lakeside served as the home of the legendary Oklahoma State University Golf Team for almost 50 years. Bob Tway, David Edwards, Doug Tewell, Scott Verplank and other PGA Tour players sharpened their games using the facilities at Lakeside.

In 1998, celebrated architect Tripp Davis renovated Lakeside to its current layout. The golf course wanders through giant oaks in the gentle rolling hills of north central Oklahoma. Featuring SR-1020 bent grass greens and zoysia/bermuda tee boxes, Lakeside offers the finest playing conditions in Stillwater. With these amenities, Lakeside is annually named one of Golf Digest Magazine's best places to play.
