FIRST LOOK GOLF: LIV Golf Tulsa 12-14 May, Cedar Ridge Country Club (Oklahoma)
Located on the southeastern outskirts of Tulsa, the championship layout at Cedar Ridge Country Club in Broken Arrow was created by a group of local businessmen in the late 1960s who engaged architect Joe Finger to fashion a 200-acre dairy farm into one of the state’s best courses.
Oklahoma native Tripp Davis was hired in 2016 to carry out a course renovation, three holes at a time, which involved a program of tree removal and rebuilding bunkers using the Better Billy Bunker system, reducing the number of sand hazards in the process by almost a third.
The redesign features a more modern course layout that challenges the game’s elite professionals from the tips.
The club has hosted many state championships and national qualifying tournaments, and its most notable event was the 1983 U.S. Women’s Open won by Jan Stephenson. Local crowds will welcome Oklahoman Talor Gooch, fellow former Oklahoma State University stars Eugenio Chacarra, Charles Howell III, Peter Uihlein and Matthew Wolff, and former University of Oklahoma star Abraham Ancer.
