Situated amid the beauty of southern Missouri's Ozark region, The Buffalo Ridge (formerly known as Branson Creek Golf Club) has a growing reputation as one of the top public golf courses in the country. Both Golf Magazine and Golf Digest have ranked as the best public course in Missouri. With such accolades, it is no wonder the golf course serves as the centerpiece for Midwest golf. Tom Fazio designed the challenging layout utilizing all of the natural features of the Ozark landscape including the abundant trees and sparkling lakes. The golf course, formerly known as Branson Creek, features elevated tees and numerous bunkers strategically positioned around the greensides and fairways. There is also the occasional multi-tiered green to watch out for. The seventh hole is a particularly demanding par 3 that requires a long tee shot to a green that slopes from left to right, with bunkers guarding it on the right side.
