Hole No. 1, Par 5

The opening hole at Buffalo Ridge provides a scenic start to the round with buffalo roaming just to the left of the fairway and a scenic view of the Ozarks in the foreground.  This downhill par five offers a generous landing area off the tee and is reachable in two shots for longer hitters, but the bunkers that guard the green must be avoided. This is a classic opening par five with risks and rewards.

Hole No. 2, Par 4

Hole No. 2 is a strong par four with a slight dogleg left (be sure to check out the cave on the left after leaving the tee box). Finding the fairway is the key to scoring well on this hole. With an accurate and long tee shot you will still have a middle iron shot to a green that is protected by a bunker on the left and a dramatic rock wall at the back of the green.

Hole No. 3, Par 4

A fairly straight par four, aim your tee shot just left of the fairway bunkers and the hole will turn slightly left off of the bunkers. The approach shot is slightly downhill to a green with a back right bunker and a sharp fall off behind the green.

Hole No. 4, Par 3

The first par three requires a high and soft shot to the center of the green. Any shot left of the green will go into a hazard left of the green. Bunkers protect the front and back left portions of the green. There is a bank just right of the green that will sometimes allow balls hit in the direction to still find the playing surface.

Hole No. 5, Par 4

This par four offers a stunning view from an elevated tee down the fairway with a beautiful crystal clear water filled rock quarry on the right. A tee shot too long down the right side can find the water hazard. A very accurate iron shot is a must into this well- protected green.

Hole No. 6, Par 4

The shortest par four on the course calls for a fairway wood, hybrid or long iron off the tee to find the short grass. The fairway bunkers must be avoided in order to attack the well-bunkered elevated green complex.

Hole No. 7, Par 3

Maybe the hardest and most intimidating par 3 on the golf course, finding the green is a must.  Any shot to the right or long finds the water hazard and missing the green to the left makes for an impossible up and down. A par here feels like a birdie.

Hole No. 8, Par 5

This par five requires attention because of its beautiful cascading water feature all along the left and woods down the right. A strong second shot still leaves you with a severe uphill approach shot to the green, which is protected by bunkers along the left side. The green has a slight false front.

Hole No. 10, Par 4

This great picturesque par four requires a slight draw down the right side to avoid a large bunker complex on the left side of the fairway. However, long hitters must also beware of the two strategically placed fairway bunkers on the right side closer to the green. The green is well-guarded by deep bunkers on the left.

Hole No. 12, Par 4

This demanding par four offers beautiful views of the Ozarks and a cavernous nature- filled drop-off to the left. Roaming buffalo can be seen in the distance. A well hit drive still leaves you with a lengthy second shot to a green that is protected by numerous well-placed bunkers.

Hole No. 13, Par 4

This natural par four takes you down and around through a ravine. The large fairway bunker on the left must be avoided off the tee. For the long hitter, two fairway bunkers on the right side must also be avoided in order to reach the green on the second shot. The green is long and deep with one bunker short right and multiple bunkers back left.

Hole No. 14, Par 5

This is a stunning, picturesque and demanding par five for the tee shot, lay-up and approach shot. There’s a large and beautiful flowing creek that runs the entire length of the hole down the right side and crosses in front of the green. Exposed ancient table rock formations encircle the green to the right with large, expansive bunkers protecting the left side. Hitting this green in three is a challenge and a must in order to score a par. It’s a world-class par five.

Enjoy a beautifully framed tee shot from high up on the mountainside to a landing area down below that is well protected by bunkers on the left and a meandering stream on the right. The green is protected by a huge false front, bunkers to the right and two distinct tiers on the green that demand a precise approach shot.

Hole No. 16, Par 4

Well-placed bunkers on both the right and left side of the fairway require a precise tee shot that is slightly uphill. Once in the fairway, your approach shot is into an elevated three-tiered green that makes putting quite a challenge. The green is framed on the left side by beautiful, natural table rock formations.

Hole No. 17, Par 3

From an elevated tee you stare straight at a daunting open cave directly behind the green with water gushing out of the cave that runs alongside the right of the green and crosses in front of the green. The green is also protected by bunkers in front and on the left side. This is a beautiful, but very challenging par three.

Hole No. 18, Par 5

The finishing hole is a par 5 that takes in all the beauty that the Ozarks has to offer. This tee shot must carry a huge section of the Ozark mountain terrain and then cross over numerous bunkers all along the left side of the fairway. The right side is framed by a long expansive rock bluff wall. Then the layup must thread the needle to a narrow gap between the bunkers on the left and trouble on the right. The approach shot is difficult to get up close because of the slope in the green. This is a classic par five finishing hole.
