Gotta Play Here

Great conditions and gorgeous views ♥️
Everything was cut well for the weekend.
Fast greens with undulations were tough.
The Hills make for natural rolls and shapes in the fairways.
Sand traps were groomed with minimal sand.
I will play here every chance I get, well worth the price and everything the Hills offers for challenging golf.

Gorgeous and Challenging

Beautiful course in the Hills. Plenty of elevation changes and slopes. Very challenging
Overall great shape with only a few areas needing worked on.
Hazards are well grown in. Rough cut high enough to be penal, but still found balls. Fairways not extremely short but mostly smooth. Greens mostly consistent on cut and speed.
One of the best kept courses in the Hills with some of the best views.
Strongly recommend playing here.

Rude staff cut our round short

We were having an excellent day golfing on this beautiful course when, directly after we tee off on hole 18, one of the course “police” (this is a term the staff used) came racing out to the 18 tee box and yelled at our group to GET THE CARTs back. We politely asked if we could finish the hole and were rudely denied.

We picked up our balls and drove back to the clubhouse to find the staff that was in such a hurry sitting around drinking beer. They all wanted to know “how was the round?” Well…… it was good until you ruined all of our experiences. On that note, this isn’t the first time I’ve heard of this happening at Southern Hills. It’s a shame that management doesn’t provide better customer service training as the course is excellent, but the staff is sub par.

Strange layout

The course is in good shape and enjoyable to play. Greens roll well and have subtle breaks. The negative is the distance between holes and sometimes difficulty finding out which way to go. Had trouble finding the forward tees on a couple of holes.
You can take carts to your car, so best to not use bag drop, but rather park, check in and get a cart.

Would play this course again.

We'll be back

There is nothing bad to say about this course. From the $15.00 six pack of beer to the pace of play - it was all good. We wouldn't recommend walking this course - and don't even know if it's allowed, but there's quite a distance between some holes.
