SOUTHWIND COUNTRY CLUB
There is a reason for the name at Southwind Country Club. The Golf Course was designed in the mid 1970?s with one overriding factor in mind. In Southwest Kansas, the wind blows from the South often and briskly. Taking that into account, the course was laid out in the rolling sand hills south of Garden City, Kansas to take advantage of the elements.
Opened in 1980, Southwind Country Club is a private country club with a reputation for fine dining, elegant ambiance, and especially for its? eighteen hole championship golf course.
The Club facilities are located within the exclusive Southwind Development, Garden City?s finest residential community, just two miles south of Garden City, Kansas.
Southwind Country Club features a championship course, designed by Don Sechrest, reminiscent of Scottish Links. The course features greens, tee boxes and fairways of Bent grass, a rarity in Kansas. The course measures 6,920 yards and has been rated by Golf Digest Magazine as the seventh ranked private course in the state.
The Club also features a beautiful Clubhouse with an atmosphere of quiet elegance, camaraderie and conviviality for the top business, professional, and academic leaders of Southwest Kansas. It houses three lovely dining rooms, lounge, meeting rooms, grill, men?s and ladies locker rooms, and a Pro Shop featuring the latest in golf equipment and attire.
An oversized swimming pool with adjacent bath house offers members of all ages the opportunity to enjoy the refreshing water as well as the generous sunning areas.
