Hidden in the Southwest Corner of Kansas you will find Point Rock Golf Club. Point Rock is the newest of the nine-hole golf courses that have been built in Southwest Kansas. Point Rock gets its name from the Point of Rocks area Northwest of the City of Elkhart in the Cimarron National Grasslands.
Morton County, which owns the golf course, has totally rebuilt it. The project, which started in July of 1998, has brought a new state-of-the-art irrigation system to water the new Bentgrass Greens and Bluegrass Fairways. The layout of the new course is drastically different than that of the old course. Holes four and five were built over a runway of the nearby airport to help with the congestion problems that hindered the old course.
Four Green built just 30 yards from Oklahoma gives the golfer the opportunity to hit his or her ball clear out of the state. The addition to the pond that brought us the signature hole, maybe the most dramatic par 3 in Southwest Kansas, a 181-yard forced carry-over water with a retaining wall just in front of the green that will challenge any player. Point Rock will play 3,200 yards from the back tees and 2,616 from the front tees giving golfers of any ability a challenge.
Full Course Layout
The opening hole is the longest, of the two Par 5s.
This short Par 3 will be hard most of the time due to it plays into the wind.
This Par 5 is short but tough. With four bunkers, two in the landing zone and two guarding the green.
The shortest Par 4 on the course could leave you in Oklahoma on your second shot if hit too hard.
This hole was built over a runway of the nearby airport. It does have three bunkers that will get any stray shot you hit to the left side.
The start of the three largest holes on the course begins with this dogleg right par 4. With a testy drive between out-of-bounds on the left and a lateral water hazard on the right, it will test the best players shot-making ability.
This Par 3 is our signature hole due to the forced carry over the pond and the retaining wall just in front of the green.
Don't be aggressive with this hole it is short but with a semi-blind second shot into the green, short is better than long.
The final hole at Point Rock, a Par 4 that has a blind tee shot to deal with and a lone fairway bunker on the left side.
