Colby Country Club -- Buffalo chip
Review by: David Sutton The Colby Country Club is a fairly open course with some really good holes. Hole #6 is my favorite hole, a good tee shot can put you on the green if you can get off the tee box. But there is some risk involved in going for the green, a row of trees to hit over in a creek bed below the tee box, out-of-bounds stakes the whole way up to the green and behind it, a grass trap in front of the green, and a row of trees that covers up most of the left side of the rough. Both par 3's can be difficult, but that has a lot to do with some really challenging greens. It is pretty hard to get the ball to stop on these saucer like greens. If you don't hit to the middle of the green on a lot of these holes you may find yourself off the short stuff. The more I play this course the shorter I hit my approaches. I think it is almost easier to hit in front of or the front edge of the green and let the ball roll. The greens on this course are pretty tricky if you don't have much experience with them.

Buffalo Dunes Golf Course -- One of the best public courses I have played!
Review by: PhaatKaat Let me start by saying I have played 100's of golf courses all across the USA and Canada. Most of them were average at best. A few were really enjoyable, but Prairie Dunes made a huge impression on me. In fact, I went to the internet looking for a place to post a review for this track. This was a wonderful golf experience. One that does not come along very often. Not to mention a tremendous bargin. $30 with cart on a weekday. I would compare the value to Pinion Hills in Farmington, NM. The course was in excellent condition when we played it on 8/31/05. Prairie Dunes has several challenging holes. Believe it or not, there are several tee shots that have blind or slightly hidden landing areas. The tee boxes and fairways were in excellent condition. Bring extra golf balls if you are not straight off the tee, especially if it is windy.(which it usually was 30mph with gusts to 40mph the day we were there.) The rough is thick, but playable. The native grass rough areas are very thick and not playable in most areas. The greens held a shot nicely, but were faster than I had expected. I would say they were an 8 to 9 on the Stimp. You will have a great time on this course!! Prarie Dunes has a wonderfully friendly staff to boot! It is worth the trip to experience this gem!
