About Trosper Golf Club
Trosper Golf Club features one of Oklahoma City's most player friendly layouts. With expansive putting greens and supple landing areas from the tee, this heavily wooded 18 hole golf course offers everyone a chance to score.
A massive bunker redesign project, completed in February of 2018, reduced the number and overall size of Trosper's bunker complexes. This redesign focused primarily on converting to a more "pot bunker" style penalty area.
A small creek meanders its way through the entire course offering some challenging but doable shot making opportunities.
Trosper has earned the reputation of being one of OKC's fastest playing courses with 18 hole rounds routinely finishing in 4 hours or less.
