In a chain of events of looking for things of Tulsa long gone for my father who is slipping into alzheimer's, I was looking through Bates web site of aerial photos for a golf course at 51st and Lewis that the club house was where Goldie's is now, and the Cherokee airport at 61st and Yale, I found myself trying to find a friends house that he lived in  that was south east of Edison and Gilcrease, near Easton & Union in the Owen Park area. While looking I came across Irving School, and in looking for info about that I found this website

http://www.tulsagal.net/

and while looking through that site I found that the original Zingo was at the Crystal City Amusement Park. Never knew that was the origin of it.

Anyway, for those that have not seen this site, it's worth checking out.

Im going to drift, but wasnt there actually a golf clubhouse there..and was it converted into a Goldies later?  You piqued a memory that is just about faded away.

Yes, Goldie's was the club house, and what is now the Lewiston Apartments was a 9 hole par three.
