Back & West Course at Southern Hills Country Club

2636 E 61st St Tulsa, OK 74136


Golf Course Description

This club has three nine hole courses. The Front Nine Course usually plays in combination with the Back Nine Course, and the West Nine Course is played as a separate nine. The Front Nine/Back Nine Course has tree-lined fairways. This is a shotmaker’s course with no straightaway fairways. Hole #18 is considered one of the toughest holes on the PGA tour. The West Nine Course is wide open and easier to score well on. The greens on all these courses are full of subtle breaks. The terrain is rolling, and creeks and ponds come into play on many holes. “Golf Digest” rated the Front Nine/Back Nine Course 25th best out of “America’s 100 Greatest Courses” for 1995-96, and 24th best for 1997-98. They also rated it as the #1 “Best in State” course for the years 1995 through 1998. In addition, “GOLF Magazine” awarded it 24th in the category of the “Top 100 Courses in the U.S.” for 1995 and 1999, and 25th in 1997. “GOLFWEEK” selected it 18th among “America’s 100 Best Classical Courses” for 1997 and 1999, and 20th in 1998. This championship course hosted the PGA Tour’s PGA Championship in 1994. This club hosted the 1958 and 1977 U.S. Opens and is scheduled to host the 2001 U.S. Open.
