MCC has served as the home of the elite in Midland since 1927. Since moving to its current location in 1954, it's maintained the reputation as one of the best and longest in the state. Designer Ralph Plummer must have been caught in some sort of a West Texas oil-patch pissing match in the midst of macho oil men when his ego prompted him to create a 7,380-yard monstrosity in an area that often is bombarded with 30-40 mph winds!

On hole after hole, golfers face long, narrow fairways lined with thick, mature trees, which themselves are lined with the famous rattlesnake-infested mesquite "jungles" that suck golf balls out of the West Texas wind. Crushed drives that find the fairway don't necessarily warrant pats on the back, as a long iron or even a 3-wood off the deck awaits the over-confident hack on his approach. Water comes into play in strategic places (7 holes), wreaking even more havoc on your round. The bent-grass greens are large and sometimes impossible to handle because of their speed.

Every hole is impressive, but the 601-yard 15th stands out, snaking its way right off the tee, then left for the second shot, and finally back to the right again into a massive, bowl-shaped, elevated green. Tiger Woods could not reach this hole in two.

Other notes: Ron Kirby redesigned the course in 1979, followed by Dick Nugent in 1985. This club hosted the 1997 Texas State Amateur. The club currently has plans for extensive renovation of the clubhouse.

Getting there : Drive north out of Midland toward Lubbock on Hwy. 349. The entrance is 1.5 miles on the left side of the road.

    I caddied first Brian Guetz in ‘06 or ‘07. He set what I think is the course record of 63 in the Midland WNB Nationwide tourney in the first round. Very long and tough course. Very slick and tricky greens. Great test of golf !

    The golf course was completely rebuilt to the original Ralph Plummer design in 2016, with the membership sparing no expense. Challenging but fair with terrific greens, water in the right places and first class amenities. Far and away the best course in West Texas. The renovation also added a 9 hole short course named for LPGA Hall of Fameer, Judy Rankin, and upgraded the practice facilities to include indoor hitting bays and ball flight tracking equipment.
