Featured Holes at TPC Southwind
Among the most notable holes at TPC Southwind are the 165-yard, par-3 11th hole, considered to be a smaller version of the famous 17th Island Green at TPC Sawgrass, forcing a short iron over water to a small island green; the 231-yard, par-3 14th – consistently ranked one of the toughest par-3 holes on the PGA TOUR – which requires a long iron or wood tee to a narrow green protected by water along the entire right side of the undulating green; and the course’s spectacular 461-yard, par-4 finishing hole, requiring a tee shot played alongside a water hazard that protects the entire left side of the fairway.
Each of the course’s 18 holes was meticulously crafted by Prichard to balance playability with strategy, challenge with stunning beauty. The result is a compelling test of golf that exhilarates, confounds, inspires and delights golfers of all abilities amidst the unspoiled beauty of the Memphis countryside.
Fuzzy Zoeller, who served as a consultant on the design of TPC Southwind along with fellow TOUR player Hubert Green, said of the course, “The first thing that comes to mind is the variety of the holes and how they can be difficult for pros and yet fun for the membership. There’s a lot of character to the golf course.”
