Golf fanatics can enjoy championship golf at Idabel Country Club or be challenged by Golf Digest's Best Municipal Golf Course in the state of Oklahoma – Cedar Creek Golf Course. The signature hole is #16 – selected as one of Oklahoma's hardest holes because the green is relatively small and is virtually surrounded by Broken Bow Lake. It is as close to an island green as you can get without actually being an island.

If you want to do a little gaming, the Choctaw Casino is just a few miles away in Broken Bow.
