The Rawls Course regularly hosts tournaments, leisure group outings and corporate events. Outdoor Pursuits For running events and other outdoor competi- tions, Buffalo Springs Lake often hosts triathlon events, because the lake is great for the swimming portion, and an around-the-lake trail leads to more paths for running and biking throughout the area.
