Mike McGraw

Entering his fourth season at the helm of the Crimson Tide women's golf program and 27th overall in college golf, head coach Mic Potter has already established a legacy of his own. Potter, who came to Tuscaloosa after a Hall-of-Fame career at Furman, led the Tide to its third NCAA Championship appearance in program history in his very first year at Alabama and repeated the feat in 2007 and 2008, reaffirming his status as one of the prominent coaches in women's collegiate golf.


 


 
No. 5

Birmingham, Ala.
 
Year opened: 2005
Course type: Public
Price: $80 to $115
Architect: Roger Rulewich/Bobby Vaughan

Potters take: It speaks volumes that it's the annual host of the Champions Tour Regions Charity Classic.'
 
No. 4
Karsten Creek Golf Club
Karsten Creek Golf Club
Stillwater, Okla.
 
Year opened: 1994
Course type: Public
Price: $300
Architect: Tom Fazio
Website: www.karstencreek.net
 
Potters take: A tough course any day you play it. At more than 7,400 yards, length plays a factor. The greens are usually slick with a great deal of slope. This Tom Fazio design has generous fairways, however, failure to find them spells disaster.
 
No. 3
Golf Club of Oklahoma
Golf Club of Oklahoma
Broken Arrow, Okla.
 
Year opened: 1984
Course type: Private
Architect: Tom Fazio
Website: http://www.golfcluboklahoma.com
 
Potters take: A beautiful piece of land with lots of trees and native areas as well. The finishing holes are something to behold.
 

No. 2
Oak Tree Golf Club
Oak Tree Golf Club
Edmond, Okla.
 
Year opened: 1976
Course type: Private
Architect: Pete Dye
Website: www.oaktreegolfclub.com
 
Potters take: One of Pete Dye's early designs. Good mixture of long and short holes and with the typical Oklahoma wind, this can become a monster. The two par five's on the front nine are as good as it gets.
 

No. 1
Southern Hills Country Club
Southern Hills Country Club
Tulsa, Okla.
 
Year opened: 1936
Course type: Private
Architect: Perry Maxwell
Website: www.southernhillscc.org
 
Potters take: Classic parkland course. Despite advances in technology, this course remains a stern test. Very slick, bent greens can be mind-boggling.
