ADG designed a new three-story golf and entertainment venue situated on the west bank of the Arkansas River. Situated on Jenks’ Riverwalk Crossing—just south of Tulsa’s downtown—Flying Tee is a mixed-use hub that connects to the Oklahoma Aquarium, the Tulsa Riverparks Trail System, Jenks High School, RiverSpirit Casino and the thriving 96th and Riverside Drive area.
The 53,000-square-foot facility pairs a multi-level restaurant with a modern, technology-driven golf gaming experience via 60 semi-private driving bays and suites on a full-size driving range. The venue includes family-oriented video games, too, like darts, Blackjack and 21.
Flying Tee’s three restaurants provide many dining options. Visitor choices include a sports bar on the first floor with a 16-foot wall of televisions. The second-floor restaurant features a massive rotisserie grill and large patio that overlooks the Arkansas River. The third-floor restaurant, only open on weekends, offers small bites along with cast iron-seared meats and salads. Corporate meeting rooms and suites complement the contemporary restaurant spaces and offer the ability to host events ranging in size from small parties to charity golf tournaments for 400.
The facility aims to take traditional golf and turn it into a dynamic, virtual and interactive experience that is fun for serious golfers and non-golfers alike. Patrons can work on their golf game, as well as compete in multiple gaming formats, leagues and tournaments, all while using traditional golﬁng equipment and golf balls.
Construction was completed in summer 2016. The Muscogee (Creek) Nation and RW Restaurant Development joined forces on the project, which is a prototype for future developments throughout the region.
