Overlooking the Concho River, Quicksand is named appropriately with its combination of desert and links-style architecture, and its prominent use of sand. Five tees, ranging from 5,023 yards to 7,171 yards, give the West Texas hacker lots of options on this unusually difficult course.
Nos. 5 and 7 are the holes of note on the front side-the 5th known for its elevated island green (surrounded by sand, not water), and the 7th famous as the toughest hole on the course. The signature No. 7 goes 621 yards and has the always-pleasing double dogleg feature, and is only lined by 22 bunkers. Yes…22 bunkers!
The back features three difficult finishing holes. No. 16 features an approach over water to a tiny green, No. 17 requires a 200-yard carry over water. The ender is a long par 4 that features a tee shot into a fairway lined by water on the left, and a difficult approach into another island-like green, this time surrounded by water.
Other notes: Walking is not allowed on the weekends. The facility is considering adding another nine holes.
Getting there : Heading east on Hwy. 67/277, take the 306 Loop Exit onto Smith Blvd. and the course is directly ahead.
