June 18                  Oklahoma state amateur golf championship tournament commences at Oakwood Country Club in Enid.  The course has “the largest greens in the state” and “mammoth” traps.  “There are less than a dozen traps on the course, but each of them has been placed by the careful hand of Perry Maxwell, who designed the course, to play havoc with misplaced shots.  The bunkers are almost as large as the huge greens in many instances and several of them are eight to 10 feet deep.  Sides next to the bunkers green are steep and only a well-played explosion shot is of any use if the ball happens to dig into the sand.”  [The Oklahoman, June 16, 1950]
