CHECOTAH, Okla. — The Muscogee (Creek) Nation Fountainhead Creek Golf Course held a ribbon cutting Oct. 1 to celebrate the new facility updates.
The updates include new golf carts, new greens and a new roof among other things. Principal Chief James Floyd said the state of the art golf carts have lithium batteries to last longer. The carts are more efficient and are equipped with GPS.
“It will be a lighter foot print on the golf course and so the golf course is a jewel here and one we want to protect,” Floyd said.
Fountainhead General Manager Jimmy Saenz started four months ago. He said the facility has a lot of plans including hole re-configurations and they are just getting started.
“We are looking to bring quality back to the golf course,” Saenz said. “I’ve gotten an opportunity to play the full 18 holes here, love it.”
Fountainhead has also moved to a tiered pricing structure to make the course affordable for everyone.
Saenz announced that in the spring, they would be opening a teaching academy for high school students.
