Southern Hills Golf and Country Club Golf Course

4770 Ben Jared Road
Cookeville, TN 38501


Southern Hills Golf and Country Club is a beautiful and challenging 18-hole, Par 72 course consisting of nice rolling hills and a pastoral setting.  Established in 1988, Southern Hills has become a favorite for local and traveling players alike.  Open to the public, it offers something for every level of player.

 Add to your skills on Southern Hills' putting green, separate chipping green and the new bi-level driving range.

 Course owners Reed and Rachel "Rusty" Welch began a vigorous upgrade program to Southern Hills in 2008 both on the course and in the beautiful clubhouse, which has continued in subsequent years.   Brand new Yamaha carts were added in January 2011, and also in 2012.  This year also brought the addition of 4 new Tee Boxes, a new bridge and an improved Driving Range with the addition of Artificial Turf, as well as Irrigated Turf areas.

 YEAR 2012 brought in an additional 5 new tee boxes and a new pond on #14!

 In the Clubhouse, you can enjoy "Reed's 19th Hole"  where you can have a relaxing drink and enjoyable hot sandwiches and appetizers.  Members enjoy special pricing also.  Flat screen TV's are at every corner of the bar area and enhance the "off-time" for golfers who like to come inside for libations and the latest game scores.

 2013 brings more improvements with more tee boxes, 25 new 2012 Yamaha carts, new additions to the Clubhouse and additional Scramble activities!
