The 18-hole layout at TPC Southwind is a Ron
Prichard design that has hosted the FedEx St Jude Classic on the PGA Tour since
1989. Water comes into play at more than half the holes on a very strong test
for the professional players.
I like TPC Southwind. This a fun, playable but difficult course that gives the pros a pretty good challenge at the St. Jude classic but is a nice course to play on a daily basis. There aren’t really any outstanding holes that capture your imagination but more a series of solid golf holes that require good ball striking and course management. Everything is very straightforward here and there are no tricks or hidden hazards. I would probably fit this course into the category of many of the PGA tour stops which I would call “good but not great”. A good course to play of you get the chance but not one I would travel miles to play.
