Editor's Note: Course closed for business. See Ozarks National/Payne's Valley listings for the new projects built on the land formerly used by the course.

Buffalo Ridge Valley Golf Course is situated just four miles south of Branson, Mo. amid rolling hills that provide an ideal landscape for a challenging round of golf. Formerly known as Murder Rock Golf Club, John Daly crafted the original design but in 2015 the course underwent major renovations spearheaded by John Morris. The course is perched atop one of the highest points in the area, supplying your round with stunning views of the Ozarks. Don't let the scenery distract too much though because the layout is a challenge. Rarely will you find a flat lie and the rough that edges the fairways is known for making balls disappear. There are many changes in elevation from tee to green, making club selection key. You'll also face several blind tee shots. Buffalo Ridge is a challenging but fun course that is ranked as one of the top public golf courses in Missouri.

Previously known as Murder Rock Golf Club.

First Time Playing

Fantastic Track

This course is breathtaking! You'll find it difficult to concentrate on your game given the scenery you'll be playing in. Don't be fooled....it's tougher than it looks. The fairways are very forgiven and the greens are perfect.
