The private Southern Hills Country Club is home to one of the top-rated and finest championship golf courses in the United States. The Perry Maxwell designed course is complemented by an attractive English country manor style clubhouse, and numerous country club amenities, marking out this venue as a premier destination for the region.
Designed by the renowned Perry Maxwell and opened for play in 1936, Gil Hanse renovated the Championship course in 2019, bringing it back to Maxwell's original vision. Laid out in two nine-hole loops, the layout's rolling green contours meander through a partly tree-lined parkland environment, with a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes along the way.
Close to Southern Hills, Joe Creek branches off the Arkansas River, and a smaller tributary of the creek meanders across and alongside several holes on the Championship course. Plenty of stylish and very visible bunkering also adorns the layout, as does a distinctive clocktower, which stands sentinel beside the practice range.
Within its quiet parkland setting, this is definitely a layout to challenge your all-round game ... as it has the game's of the world's top professionals and amateurs. Beyond the Championship course, and built on the Club's former polo field and skeet shooting range, lies the also excellent nine-hole West course, the creation of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw no less!
