The Golfer's Journal is pleased to invite you to

Shady Oaks

November 4, 2024 | Fort Worth, TX

A Maxwell Masterpiece

Salt, sand, water and time laid the foundations for one of America’s greatest collections of golf holes. Perry and Press Maxwell did the rest. And thanks to a longstanding commitment to excellence from members and club staff alike, this Golden Age layout continues to charm and vex golfers in equal measure. The Broken Tee Society will make a third trek to the plains of Hutchinson, Kansas, this April, and it’s obvious why: We can’t resist this combination of quality golf and perfect vibes. Join us for 36 holes at an all-time classic—just remember to stay out of the gunch.
