Buckhannon Country Club is a Semi-Private, 9 hole golf course located in Buckhannon, West Virginia. Although a private course, they allow Upshur County residents to play 4 times per year. Non-Upshur County residents can play an unlimited number of rounds.
The course first opened for play in 1921.
The course is essentially a nine-hole course, but it does have a separate hole for #9 and #18. While the 6,052-yard layout is not overly long, shot making is at a premium. The course rating for men is 69.5, for women 67.3 and seniors 65.0. The slope rating for men is 121, for women 104 and seniors 112.
The tree-lined undulating fairways require accurate tee shots and then precise shots to small, fast greens, most of which are guarded by sand traps. Water guards the fourth green and members must tee off over water on the tenth hole. What makes the tenth tee tough is that sits right in front of the clubhouse veranda where fellow members love to heckle the players.
A putting green is near tee #1 and there is also an iron practice area.
The course has cart paths throughout and most members have their own golf carts, which they store in the cart shed. Golf carts are also available for rent: they are on a first come basis.
Blue tees: par-36, 3,050 yards, 34.7 / 121
