The Eccentric Duffer golf course is the brainchild of Ken Hobbs. Walking the property one day, he decided it would make a lovely golf course. Then Elizabeth spoke those fateful words, “Get after it!” It took 1½ years for the two of them to build the initial course. Family members helped, including the youngest grandchild and Elizabeth’s 80+ mother. It opened to temporary greens and people came. The bermuda grass greens are unique in Ada, Oklahoma, but suit the course. Although it is not an easy course to play, it is not so difficult that beginners are intimidated, and is a great place to work on the short game. The course is unusual in a number of ways, not the least of which is the fact that it originally had 10 complete greens. When expanding the #7 fairway, the 85 yard green was left for those who are short on time or just don’t want to play the long hole. Not only does a large pond and numerous trees come into play on more than one hole, but two holes are “blind” holes with their greens tucked back into trees or behind a tree-lined pond.
