Roman Nose State Park, OK

Roman Nose State Park, Oklahoma

Nestled in a magnificent canyon, embraced by crimson shale bluffs and milky gypsum hills, Roman Nose was once a favorite retreat of the Cheyenne Indians. And no wonder, The Spring of Everlasting Waters gurgles forth from subterranean rivers at the rate of 600 gallons per minute, feeding a recreational paradise of waters and wildlife.

Today, Roman Nose is a retreat for you ... a secluded setting for splashing fun in our natural rock swimming pool, a challenging round on our 18-hole golf course, and fishing and boating on nearby lakes Boecher and Watonga. Trout fishing is popular November 1 through March 31.

Cheyenne Chief Roman Nose, for whom the area was named, would marvel at the modern amenities now offered visitors to this picturesque playland. The newly remodeled Roman nose resort Lodge has 47 inviting guest rooms, three large meeting rooms providing 4,315 square feet of function space, 10 cottages and a large dining room filled with the alluring aroma of home-style cooking. Also on the grounds are ten cottages equipped with kitchenettes and fireplaces, along with clean, wooded campgrounds and picnic shelters.

Roman Nose Resort preserves the natural scenic wonders of the canyon, while hosting guests with all the luxuries of home and conveniences of a fine hotel.

Roman Nose State Park Golf Courses

Roman Nose Golf Course
Roman Nose Golf CourseThe 6,139 yard, par 70, eighteen-hole Roman Nose Golf Course was designed by Floyd Farley and Tripp Davis, and it makes use of the underlying gypsum rock and hilly terrain of Oklahoma's red rock canyon country.

Countless loads of topsoil and yards of terracing have made this course newly lush in recent years. But with narrow sloping fairways and elevated greens, accuracy remains the key to success here: golf pros insist a high, soft flop shot is the secret to good scoring.

Canyons border fairways and greens, and drop-offs of 30 or 40 feet are common. The course's signature fourth hole is known as the "Canyon Hole." This 444 yard par 4 hole can also be afforded the added distinction of being the Toughest hole due to its natural hazard.
