Buffalo Hill Golf Club is a public 27-hole parkland golf course located in Kalispell, Flathead County, Montana. The course was founded in 1918. Prior to becoming a golf course the land was owned by the affluent Conrad family† and used as a buffalo pasture. The golf course is located 31mi southwest of Glacier National Park and 8mi north of Flathead Lake.
Dave Broeder—who was appointed as PGA head professional in 1990—has worked at the club since 1974. The Championship 18 Course at Buffalo Hill was designed by noted golf course architect Robert Muir Graves.
In 1918, land was purchased where part of the Cameron 9-hole course now stands. The Cameron course is named for Dave Cameron, a former Kalispell mayor and early golf administrator in the area. Another nine holes were built with sand greens and no irrigation on the fairways. This 18-hole course continued to operate until the late 1930s when the Works Progress Administration (WPA) built the rustic log clubhouse. The WPA also improved the golf course by building a 9-hole irrigated grass course. Some holes are still in service today while others have been modified during subsequent expansions.
In 1964, the club made a major improvement with the construction of nine more holes, four of which are incorporated into the Championship 18 course. In 1974, members of the Kalispell Golf Association decided to expand the course to 27 holes with construction of new golf holes around and over the Stillwater River.
