Detailed description of Bison Golf Club, Bison Golf Course

Bison Golf Club, previously named Show Low Country Club, is a Semi-Private, 18-hole golf course located in Show Low, Arizona.

The course first opened for play in 1961. The course was designed by Jack Snyder.

Formerly the Show Low Country Club and Golf Course, Bison Homes purchased that course in 2005 along with 360 adjoining acres of heavily wooded, undeveloped land. Three new golf holes and a driving range were built in the new acreage, while the existing holes were redesigned. Luxurious cabin homes were mindfully placed amongst the pine trees along the fairways of the three new holes. The overall master-planned community, Bison Crossing, opened in 2007 along with the rechristened golf facility, Bison Golf Club.

The course re-design was done by PGA Tour player and former ASU star, Billy Mayfair. Mayfair has blended the new golf holes into the surrounding environment while enhancing the existing holes with his unique redesign touches. Every hole is now distinct with premiums placed on approach shots, distance control, and mid-range iron accuracy.

The highlight of the Mayfair design is the new signature hole, # 14, a nasty par 5 (626 yards from the tips) that snakes narrowly through some of the tallest pines on the property. Nicknamed "Thunderbeast," this hole features a small, well-protected green that is rarely reachable in two.

Par for the course is 71. From the back tees, the course plays to 6,413 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 5198 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 14, the par-5 that plays to 626 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 12, a par-3 that plays to 164 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 14, the 626-yard par-5 challenge is the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 3, a 192-yard par-3.
