Chickasaw Senior Golf Academy

Chickasaw Nation Citizen Benefits

The Chickasaw Senior Golf Academy encourages citizens age 55 and older to hit the links and practice their skills at the world-class WinStar Golf Course. During the springtime "camp for adults," seniors take three days to work on the basics under the watchful eyes of PGA pros, and in their off time, they get to enjoy the surroundings at the WinStar World Casino Hotel. "You don't have to play a great game," said participant Bob Stick. "You just go out and play it for your own benefit and it keeps you active." For more information, visit Chickasaw.net.
