About the Course
A proud highlight in Gaines County Golf’s history, we hosted Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer in 1963.
Although the terrain is challenging, the layout boasts plenty of trees and a good amount of elevation. The course’s most notable amenity is its large, fast, and extremely well-kept greens. Sometimes the conditions help the ball roll and are definitely beneficial when the wind is blowing.
Every par 3 requires a long iron, but the demanding par 4s are the attention-getters. Two par 4s stand out among many as above average in difficulty for courses in this remote area. The signature hole is No. 8: it’s only 340 yards but requires an approach shot over a pond to a well-bunkered green. Hole 5 also plays tough as a 435-yard dogleg right with an approach into an elevated green. This hole is particularly long into the wind.
Gaines County Golf Course is located virtually in-between Seagraves and Seminole on Highway 385. It is located on the west side of the road about 7-8 minutes from either town.
