Although countless changes and improvements have been made since these gentlemen last visited, the high praise Southview receives year after year, from amateurs and pros alike, remains the same. It is a course whose sheer aesthetic beauty lies in stark contrast to the challenge it provides to golfers of every skill level. It is the kind of course you never grow tired of playing, and are always proud to bring your guests to.
Southview Country Club is a meticulously kept par 71 course originally designed by noted "golf course expert," Wm. B. Langford. Jerry Pirkl was hired in the mid 60’s to redesign the original layout. Today, Southview is noted for its immaculate rolling fairways, mature trees, numerous water hazards featuring fountains and magnificent landscaping. And of course, the finest greens in this part of the country.
As a member of Southview you quickly learn that this is not a course easily overcome by raw power off the tee. To the contrary, accuracy is at a premium. The fairways are narrow and undulating. The trees are close and often times unforgiving.
