BROKEN BOW, Okla., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- An outdoor oriented "Guys Getaway" provides a chance to reconnect with old high school or college buddies, childhood friends, neighbors, work friends, and definitely fishing and golfing buddies - essentially those who are your brothers in spirit, if not in blood.

The Beavers Bend State Park area in Southeast Oklahoma offers boundless recreational opportunities to fit every interest and fitness level. For hiking and biking enthusiasts there are miles of secluded trails with breathtaking views of mountaintops, waterfalls, an unspoiled lake and sparkling streams.

Golf enthusiasts 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.

Fishing enthusiasts will thoroughly enjoy the finest trout fishery in the South Central U.S. with plenty of fast running water for fly-fishing and spinning rod. It won't hurt to check with the local fly shop to see what the Rainbows and big Brown Trout are chasing.
