You will want to schedule your own round of golf at Southern Hills soon so that you can experience the premier golf course in middle Georgia.
You’ll start your round with a drive from one of the highest points on the course. No. 1 is a par-4 that measures 404 yards from the back tees and 329 from the front. This is one of our tougher holes and it makes for a rousing start. Although you have the advantage of hitting downhill, you’re driving toward a landing area in front of a creek, according to Larry Dunaway, our general manager. It’s best to use a long iron or three-wood off the tee and favor the right side of the fairway.
“After you hit your tee shot, you have to go back uphill to a narrow, two-tiered green,” says Dunaway. “The pin placement can be tough on this hole. Four is a good score here.”
