If you are a golfer at heart you probably have a course that will forever be seared in your memory. Perhaps it was one that truly put your skills to the test or where you golfed the best game of your life. Maybe it is one that brought a hole-in-one or a place where you spent a great day with a close group of friends. There are many wonderful things about our little neck of the woods but the golfing opportunities around Broken Bow, OK definitely make the list.

The Idabel Country Club in Idabel, OK is just a short, 10-minute scenic drive from Beavers Bend Creative Escapes in Broken Bow. This 18-hole golf course has beautifully manicured fairways lined by towering pine trees and plenty of curves, sand and water to test your skills. Their full service pro shop carries all of the top of the line accessories you would need and the clubhouse, open for lunch to the public offers some fantastic food to keep you energized before or after your game.

Coming up August 2-3, 2014, the club is hosting a “Three Lady Scramble” so if you have a couple of friends who like to golf or have a desire to get out and try their hand at it, this is a great event to take part in. If you aren’t familiar with a scramble, it is simply a golf term for tournament. In this type of play, each player tees off at the hole, the best shot is selected and then all the players take their second shot from that place.

This continues until the ball gets into the hole! For this tournament all teams qualify to play on Saturday and then the final scramble on Sunday is played by fights (groups organized by the golf committee based on scores from the previous day).There will be a wonderful dinner Saturday evening with special prizes. Sunday starts with a delicious continental breakfast and an awards ceremony will follow the tournament. It is sure to be a fun day and there’s nothing better than playing outdoors on a great course with beautiful scenery all around.

If you are popping into town for this tournament or just want to make a special weekend getaway, skip a hotel room and stay at your own private luxury cabin at Beavers Bend Creative Escapes. Each one is cozy, relaxing and has all of the amenities you need to get refreshed after a day on the green. Contact us today for reservation information at (580) 306-2266.
