Buffalo Ridge

The Region’s Top Golf Course



Buffalo Ridge Springs Golf Course
1001 Branson Creek Boulevard
Hollister, MO 65672

Matching the beauty of Top of the Rock is the Tom Fazio designed Buffalo Ridge Springs Course (formerly Branson Creek Golf Club). Already acclaimed as the region’s top golf course, Buffalo Ridge has been transformed by the guiding hands of visionary conservationist Johnny Morris and renowned golf course architect Tom Fazio. Adding new approaches, water features and bunkers, Morris and Fazio have redesigned the course layout to bring players in close contact with nature, native grasses and free-ranging buffalo from nearby Dogwood Canyon Nature Park.

The course has been rated the #1 Public Course in Missouri by Golf Magazine and has been named one of the Top 10 Missouri Courses by Golf Digest since 2001. The course holds a Golf Digest rating of 4.5 stars out of 5.
