“As there is considerable demand on the part of guests for golfing facilities, the Buck Hill Falls Company, and its cottagers decide to build their own links and purchase 259 acres. Early in the spring, a number of golf experts visit Buck Hill and under their supervision the first nine holes are built.” **
“New nine hole course opens for play July 1.”**
“Donald Ross, one of America’s foremost architects, is employed to the study the golf links and present a plan for increasing to 27 holes.”**
“Donald Ross lays out nine new holes.”**
“New nine holes completed at the cost of over $100,000. Some of the holes, extremely expensive to build with No.3 on the Blue costing $13,000 and No.4 $15,000.”**

Buck Hill Golf Club aspires to provide a playing experience that is timeless and notably pure. The 27 holes that comprise the Red, White and Blue courses were not laid out to maximize home sites, but rather to take advantage of the natural terrain and to showcase the panoramic vistas. They are not measured by GPS, but by their classic subtleties, their masterful defense of par, and the memories they sear. A hotly contested match battled over the Blue nine that chases the sun and is not settled until the final putt is holed is the essence of golf at Buck Hill. Experience it, and you will have experienced history.
