Muscogee (Creek) Nation Sees Successful Start for Fountainhead Creek Golf Course Reopening
CHECOTAH, Okla. – Just six months after the Fountainhead Creek Golf Course Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, the Lake Eufaula venture is proving successful for the Muscogee (Creek) Nation.
The Nation celebrated the reopening of the Fountainhead Creek Golf Course and its updated features, which included new greens, golf carts and a new roof among other things.
Following the ribbon cutting Oct. 1, 2018, the golf course has been the host of several notable golf tournaments, such as the Heartland Conference and the Lake Eufaula Classic.
Fountainhead General Manager Jimmy Saenz said they are pleased to be hosting tournaments and building partnerships with local schools.
Fountainhead has hosted tournaments for Eufaula and Oktaha Public Schools and will finish the month of April by hosting several Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association Golf tournaments.
The OSSAA tournaments include the Class 2A Girls and Boys Qualifiers, as well as the Class 3A Girls and Boys Regional.
Aside from hosting events, the 18-hole, par-72 course not only offers a driving range, putting green and golf shop, but also offers private and group golf lessons.
Saenz said the facility is unique in that the standard golf course membership fees aren’t offered to visitors, but instead they offer Golf Passes, which are more like packages with rounds.
Saenz said they will also be launching new programs soon, such as the Teaching Academy that will offer women and youth golf clinics.
Beginning Summer 2019, the facility will host at least eight Junior Summer Camps to area students.
Saenz said Fountainhead will continue to come up with new ideas and programs that makes the course unique and standout to the visitors.
“I think a lot of the things that we’re doing out here, we’re attracting some new eyes for sure,” Saenz said. “Just getting people to realize that everybody’s welcome and we want everybody here. So, as long as we continue to make small changes that are noticeable then people will remember that.”
The Fountainhead Creek Golf Course is located at 112469 Hwy. 150 Checotah, OK 74426.
