Located between Denver City and Plains, Yoakum County is a wide-open course that was built on moderately rolling terrain. Water hazards (ponds, lakes, creeks, and streams) come into play on over half the holes, which is surprising for a course in this region. Avoid the driver if you can, as the course is short enough to score well without it. (You might need the driver, though, on the number-one handicap, a 440-yard, par 4 No. 14.)

Watch for storms blowing in quickly on hot, summer afternoons. The course gained a few moments of fame one recent June when newscasts captured winds upwards of 100 MPH that took out whole trees and blew roofs off buildings.

Getting there : From Lubbock drive through Brownfield; 12 miles south is Wellman. Take a right on Hwy. 213. The course is 23 miles west of Wellman on the south side of the road. Turn left at the stop sign and button-hook back through the park.

    This is the best thing since peanuts butter. If you can learn to enjoy golf in 100 mph wind than you should just take up meditating. That is what I did and now I feel 0 mph wind golf is heaven. Ain't that something?
