Southern Hills Country Club is a prestigious private golf and country club in Tulsa, Oklahoma in the United States. It was established in 1936 from land donated by multimillionaire oilman Waite Phillips. The construction costs were raised by the founding members.

The main 18-hole golf course was laid out by golf course designer Perry Maxwell and renovated by Keith Foster in 1999. There is also a 9-hole West Course which was designed by Ben Crenshaw in 1992. Southern Hills also has the typical additional facilities of an elite country club, including extensive banqueting facilities, a fitness centre, swimming and diving pools and tennis courts. The course is ranked No. 15 among "Golf Digest"’s “America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses”.

Southern Hills has hosted two of golf's four major championships for men, the U.S. Open (1958, 1977, 2001) and the PGA Championship (1970, 1982, 1994, 2007). It is the first course to host four PGA Championships. It has also hosted several other prestigious tournaments. Southern Hills also has the rare honor of being the inaugural host of a USGA championship, hosting the first-ever U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur in 1987.
