About Buffalo Peak Golf Course

Buffalo Peak Golf Course is a Public 18 hole golf course located on the edge of the small Eastern Oregon community of Union, just sixteen miles southeast of La Grande. The course is owned and managed by Union County, Oregon.

Buffalo Peak Golf Course first opened for play in 2000. The course was designed by Bill Phillips.

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.

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 6,467 yards. From the foward tees the course plays to 4,521 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 2, a par-5 that plays to 525 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 3, a par-3 that plays to 135 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 9, a 506 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. A water hazard runs across the fairway about 15 yards short of the green. An elevated green may require "more club" on your approach shot to the wide shallow green. The easiest hole at Buffalo Peak Golf Course is # 17, a 347 yard par-4.

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.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
