Experience the Elegance, Live the Tradition
Gaillardia, the state of Oklahoma’s official wildflower, is named after Gaylord de Marentonneau, a French botanist from whom the Gaylord family are direct descendants.
In the mid-1990s, Edward L. Gaylord, former owner of the Oklahoma Publishing Company, selected a parcel of his family’s farm land to transform into a grand, Old World style clubhouse, golf course and community that would rival any in the Midwest. The Gaillardia development includes more than 250 acres of golf course, 240 acres of residential homes and 66 acres of perimeter business and commercial property.
In 1997, ground was broken for the 55,000-square-foot French-Normandy style clubhouse. The three-story majestic clubhouse was designed by the renowned William Zmitowski Associates and opened in 1999. Soon Gaillardia was recognized as one of the top 100 clubhouses in the world. Despite the formal setting, Gaillardia features amenities for every walk of life. The clubhouse is home to both casual as well as formal dining rooms. Elegant and spacious banquet facilities are the setting for hundreds of weddings, business meetings and other special events each year.
