Buffalo Peak Golf Course has dramatic landscape with views of the Grande Ronde Valley and surrounding Wallowa and Blue Mountain ranges. The native vegetation, natural terrain, and links design will transport you back to the very beginnings of the sport. From the elevated tees of the first hole to the gently sloping fairway of the eighteenth, your senses will be captivated.

The front 9 was being worked on so the pro shop gave us another 9 holes for $1 dollar.

It's a challenging course played from the front tees or the 'tips'. The course rewards straight shots and thhe greens are a fast, but in superb condition for a public course. It is well worth the fees and is a bargain for such a beautiful course.
