    Southern Hills has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. and the World by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.

    A shotmaker's course set in the heartland, Southern Hills is considered the masterpiece of the Depression Era golf course architect Perry Maxwell. The facility has three nine-hole courses that are traditionally played in combinations -- The Front and West nines and the Front and Back nines -- to create an 18-hole round.

    The terrain features rolling fairways and scores of mature, lofty trees. Those, combined with elevation changes between the tees and the fairways, and the fairways and the greens, place a premium on distance control and shot selection.

    Southern Hills has a great blend of long par 3s, short par 4s and challenging par 5s. Water comes into play on several holes, and many of the longer holes have doglegs, so players must shape tee shots around corners and into specific areas if they want to attack the fast, undulating greens.

    Southern Hills hosted 1958, 1977 and 2001 U.S. Opens, as well as the 1994 and 2007 PGA Championships.
