Quail Creek Country Club
Designed by Bill Howard of Howard, Samis & Davies
3501 Quail Creek Rd., OKC
The Frank Lloyd Wright-influenced Quail Creek Country Club is one of OKC’s best architectural treasures. Designed by Bill Howard (who, perhaps not surprisingly, was a student of Wright’s), the club opened to great fanfare in 1961 and hosted many national golfing events through the ’70s:
Remodeled in the early 2000s by Elliott + Associates, the clubhouse is light and airy but is also grounded by rich, dark wood embellishments on the walls and ceilings.
Although the building has past the half-century mark, professors at the architecture schools at OU and OSU continue to take their students on tours of the building to study its geometry and exceptional design.
