Chickasaw Country's Father's Day Ideas

Share with friends

When you think of unsung heroes, your dad might pop into your head. Maybe he taught you how to swim or ride your first bicycle. He may be your role model for how a father should be with his inspirational words, Mr. Can-Do attitude and sometimes hilariously bad dad joke-telling. He's also someone worth celebrating. That's why we've pulled together the ultimate guide with great ways to celebrate dad this Father's Day.

Golf Excursion

If your pop enjoys going to the greens, there are dozens of golf courses to choose from in Chickasaw Country. In the southern region, WinStar Golf Club is available for a state-of-the-art experience. The two championship 18-hole courses by Weibring-Wolfard Golf Design allow for golfers of all levels to enjoy themselves every day of the year. The amenities at this golf club are second to none. Golf carts are equipped with touchscreen GPS as well as scented face towels and complimentary bottled water. If your father wants to learn more technique from a golf expert or play for the first time, check out the WinStar Golf Academy available on site.

The Lake Murray State Park Golf Course offers an 18-hole, par 72 course with oak trees lining the fairways, minimal water hazards and a breathtaking natural waterfall. An estimated 40,000 rounds are played annually on this beautiful golf course. The state-of-the-art pro shop has natural stone and wood architecture that gives visitors a first glimpse of the course, while the outside patio lets them relax and enjoy the beauty of it.

Further north is one of the top golf courses in the state! The Winter Creek Golf & Country Club is a prestigious golf course and country club located in Blanchard. Designed by internationally renowned golf course architect, Rocky Roquemore, the course features 18 lusciously landscaped holes surrounded by 14 crystal clear lakes. With 7,063 yards of green and a par of 72, the course has been specially tailored to create an exceptional golfing experience for every level of player and is known for having several PGA golfers hit up the greens there!

Adrenaline Pumping


For the adventurer, Chickasaw Country offers several options to get the blood flowing and the heart racing. Experience the speed and excitement of the race at the Ardmore Dragway. Originally built as the Ardmore Municipal Airport, this dragstrip has been racing cars since 1954 and is considered one of the oldest continually run dragways in the nation. 

Does your dad have a great throwing arm? Test his strength at Wild Ox Axe Throwing in Chickasha. Want to add a hint of fun and brightness to the outing? Book a lane during their glow throws for a glow-in-the-dark throwing experience.

Lakeview Weekend

Enjoy some quality time with dad at an area cabin located near one of the beautiful lakes in Chickasaw Country. With 20 different cabins to choose from in Sulphur and Davis, Acorn Vacation Homes offers beautiful homes and cozy cabin rentals in the Arbuckle Mountain area.
