Hole #1

The opening hole is an uphill dogleg left, heavily bunkered down the left side. Be aggressive and cut the corner for a short iron approach, but watch out for the deep bunkers. Be sure to take extra club on your uphill second shot.


Hole #2

With O.B. left and right on the second hole, the blind tee shot to this downhill dogleg right is just the beginning. Avoid the mounds on the left side and “Betty’s Pond,” which guards the green on the right side.


Hole #3

The only par 5 on the front nine, this double dogleg turns left then right, and is reachable for a big hitter. Others will need to keep their second shot right of the fairway trap, as well as left of the hazard on the right. Avoid the collection area to the left and the pond to the right with your third shot. The green is 38 yards from front to back. Make sure to take extra club for your uphill approach.


Hole #4

The longest of the par 3’s, this kidney-shaped green requires a mid- to long-iron approach to a green that is bunkered on the left. Shots short and to the right will catch the terrain that runs away from the green.


Hole #5

Hole 5 presents your first risk/reward opportunity. Measuring only 328 yards from the blue tees, big hitters will have the opportunity to drive the green. However, with the green built at the top of a hill, a misplaced tee shot can kick out-of-bounds. More conservative players can lay-up short of the creek and between the two mounds, giving them a short iron approach. A creek that is not visible from the tee crosses the fairway 50 yards from the green.


Hole #6

As the foremost handicap hole, the sixth hole requires an aggressive tee shot that avoids the O.B. right, as well as the hazard and bunker on the left. A precise mid- to long-iron approach is necessary to avoid the hazards left and right, in addition to the bunker that guards the left side of the green.


Hole #7

The seventh hole offers another risk/reward opportunity on this sharp dogleg right. Trees and a creek line the left side of the fairway while a lake protects the right side of the fairway and green. Aggressive players can cut the corner for a shorter approach. The conservative route requires an exact tee shot that leaves a short iron approach to a heavily-bunkered green.


Hole #8

Don’t let the lack of length lull you to sleep—this short par 3 has some major bite. With a creek short, bunkers left and long, and creek right, accuracy is the name of the game. Miss the green and you’re looking at a bogey or worse.


Hole #9

The tee shot lines you up right on this dogleg left. The fairway opens up to the right, but hit too straight or too far right and you’ll find yourself blocked by the trees for your second shot. A well-placed tee shot will leave a short- to mid-iron approach.


Hole #10

A tee shot down the right side will run to the left on this soft dogleg left. Be careful not to go too far left, or the lone tree on the corner of the dogleg will cause you trouble. Play it safe to the middle of the green on your approach, avoiding the bunker that guards the left side of the green.


Hole #11

The eleventh hole has you hitting out of a chute on this uphill dogleg left. Again, aggressive players may choose to flirt with the bunker on the right side that guards the corner. A short iron approach to a flat green presents an excellent opportunity for birdie.


Hole #12

Providing a brief breather, this downhill par 3 plays slightly shorter than the yardage. What you see is what you can expect from this hole with OB along the left and a deep bunker guarding the front right side.


Hole #13

Hole 13 is the final drivable par 4 for big hitters, presenting an uphill dogleg right. Bunkers guard the corner, and if you land there, you’ll face the most difficult shot in golf: the 60 to 70-yard bunker shot.


Hole #14

The easiest par 5 on the golf course is the best opportunity for birdie. A long drive can catch the downhill slope, adding another 30-50 yards to your drive. If you have to lay-up, avoid the fairway bunker 50 yards short of the green. The green has a ridge running from front to back, so make sure your approach finds the correct side of the green.


Hole #15

Fairway bunkers guard both sides of the landing area on the fifteenth hole’s long par 4. A well-placed tee shot will leave you with an easy approach to an unguarded green.


Hole #16

The signature hole at Buffalo Creek, this hole has been rated as one of the toughest par 5’s in Texas by the Dallas Morning News. The fairway winds to the left around a large pond. Then you must decide if you can lay-up short of the creek that crosses the fairway 180 yards from the green. If you try to lay-up over the creek, you must avoid the trees that line both sides of the fairway. Take an extra club for your uphill approach to a two-tiered green, then watch out for the bunkers left that sit well below the green.


Hole #17

Hole 17 offers a well-deserved break after the last hole’s challenge. This short uphill par 3 requires a mid- to short-iron to a narrow but deep green protected by bunkers on both sides.


Hole #18

The final hole is one of the more scenic tee shots on the course. A downhill tee shot on this dogleg left must avoid the fairway bunkers left. Balls finding one of these bunkers will have to be played short of the creek that crosses the fairway 100 yards from the green. A tee shot that finds the fairway will leave a mid-iron approach to an elevated green.
