Featuring bluegrass fairways and bentgrass greens, Buffalo Dunes Golf Course has operated as a public facility since 1976. Staff loyalty here is such that there have only been four golf pros and four superintendents since the course first opened.
The 18-hole, par 72 course extends to 6,806 yards from the back markers. With just a few trees lining the fairways on a flat, open property, this offers little protection from the Southwest Kansas breezes that often get up in the afternoon.
Highlight holes include the par three 4th (where the green sits behind a sizeable irrigation pond), the right doglegging par four 10th (rated stroke index 2 on the card), and the 357-yard 18th, with two large bunkers protecting the front left and right side of the home green.
Since 2014, the club has hosted the Garden City Charity Classic for professional women and leading amateur female players on the LPGA’s development circuit, the Symetra Tour.
