Welcome to Buffalo Dunes Golf Course
Welcome to Buffalo Dunes Golf Course, ranked as the No. 1 municipally-owned golf course in Kansas by Golf Digest magazine. It has been recognized by Golf Magazine and Travel & Leisure Magazine as places to play and best bangs for the buck.
Challenging, enjoyable and affordable, Buffalo Dunes will give you a little bit of Scottish feel as it is nestled among the historic sand hills six miles south of Garden City. Southwest Kansas offers a 4-season climate and golf can be played throughout the year, weather permitting.
Opened in 1976 on land donated by E.C. Brookover Sr., Buffalo Dunes is one of the host courses to the prestigious Southwest Kansas Pro-Am every August. Among the golfing greats who have walked the fairways of the Dunes are U.S. Open champions Steve Jones and Lee Janzen, British Open champions Tom Weiskopf and Stewart Cink.
Beautifully conditioned, the Dunes has bluegrass fairways, well-maintained bentgrass greens and native grasses that challenges the golfer and provides a memorable experience.
The course can play at differing lengths based upon a player’s skill level, with yardages from 5,452 to the championship tees of 6,806 yards. Buffalo Dunes has played host to numerous Kansas Golf Association state championships through the years as well as hosting high school regional and state tournaments.
For the first time, in early June of 2013, the Dunes will be host to an American Junior Golf Association tournament – the Kansas Classic.
Buffalo Dunes’ tradition is heightened by its continuity of its professional staff. The course has had only four golf professionals and three golf course superintendents in his 37-year history.
From near and far, golfers have traveled to this southwest Kansas oasis and left with lasting memories. Come and see for yourself why people of all ages and skill level leave the Dunes with one thought in mind – when can I return?
