Oklahoma’s Premier Golf and Residential Community Utilizes Facebook, Twitter to Keep Followers Abreast of Daily Activities, Offers
(Southwest Oklahoma) – The Territory Golf and Country Club, an award-winning residential community near the town of Duncan, has embraced social media in an ongoing initiative to provide the latest news and information to current and prospective members.
Named a “Best New” and “Top 50 Residential Course” by Golfweek and designated as one of Oklahoma’s best courses by Golf Digest, The Territory is also a leader in the two-way communications sphere, using both Twitter and Facebook to engage and strengthen relationships with followers.
“Usage of outlets such as Twitter and Facebook has grown substantially over the last year and our members and guests enjoy the ‘instant’ information available via this forum,” says Rick Braught, who along with his wife Barbara, owns the club. “We’re constantly looking for ways to better serve our members and social media is the best way to supply everyone with up-to-the-minute updates.”
Via Twitter and Facebook, The Territory is able to promote a variety of initiatives and create an even greater sense of community by providing real-time details about upcoming events, tournament results, sales and much more.

About The Territory
Prospector’s Ridge, Phase I of the residential development at The Territory, is in the early stages of development. Prices of lots available range from $61,000 to $138,000. If a similar, high-quality property like The Territory were located in the nearby Dallas-Fort Worth area it would likely cost three times as much.
With five sets of tees – ranging from 4,845 to 7,110 yards – the modified target-golf course offers playability and enjoyment to players of all ages and skill levels. The greens are an A1-A4 creeping bentgrass blend, the tees, fairways and roughs are Tifsport Bermudagrass and native vegetation frames the playing corridors.
Located on the historic Chisholm Trail, The Territory is within a short drive of lakes for boating and fishing and mere minutes from a pair of schools, shopping, dining and churches. In addition, Duncan Regional Hospital was named to the Solucient Top 100 Hospitals list – a study of more than 3,000 hospitals that identifies industry benchmarks by recognizing U.S. hospitals that have achieved excellence in quality of care, operational efficiency, financial performance and adaptation to the environment.
Owners Rick and Barbara Braught – members of the McCasland Oil family – are graduates of the University of Oklahoma and remain active through university fund raising, support and holding season tickets to Sooner athletic events. Barbara (BA 1986, MBA 1990) is the granddaughter of T.H. McCasland – the founder of Mack Oil Company – and serves as Executive Director of the McCasland Foundation, while Rick (BBA 1984, MBA 1989) oversees numerous companies.
