Buckhorn Golf Club
Buckhorn Golf Club
designed by Art Schaupeter
Price: less than $100*

The Buckhorn is located on the outskirts of historic Comfort, Texas, at the foothills of the Hill Country. A short 30 minute ride up I-10, and you're far enough away to enjoy yourself, but still close enough to get back in time for dinner.

The Buckhorn's championship layout is situated to take perfect advantage of the land's natural attributes – elevation changes, clear water creeks, stands of live oak, and, of course, vista views. Well known as a really fun golf course that’s always in exceptional condition, The Buckhorn exceeds every golfer’s expectations and has a natural 100-foot elevation change.

On the front nine most of the holes are traditional and straightforward, some are side by side, and on most holes you can see the pin.  #5 is a fun one that requires the right club to avoid the creek crossing the fairway and then an accurate shot to a green protected by the lake and a bunker.

The back nine seems a little prettier, more interesting, and a little more challenging.  Number 14 has a fun roller coaster green; #15 tees off from elevated tee boxes with a fantastic view of the Hill Country (watch out for the creek crossing the fairway) and then heads back uphill to the green; the green on 17 requires and accurate approach shot to avoid the 4 good sized bunkers protecting it; and  #18 is a fun finishing hole with a good sized bunker strategically placed in the middle of the fairway.
