Paul Kennedy
Horseshoe Pitching Complex
Buffalo, TX

In early 2001, a horseshoe club was just a dream for local residents Paul Kennedy and Willie Rutledge. After months of meeting with the city and the BEDC, the first 12 courts were built in the summer of 2001. The land that the courts were built on had been used as an illegal dump site. Lots of old appliances, over 50 rusted bed springs, and truckloads of trash had to be hauled off the property. After lots of help from many local businesses, the first tournament was held in August 2001 with 56 participates in attendance. This is when long time Buffalo, TX resident, Ray Waters became the first paid member of Tri-County Horseshoe Club.
He is still a member today!

The horseshoe club has come a long way since that dream in 2001. Since then the club added 12 more courts in 2002 and the air conditioned restrooms in 2003 along with 14 RV hookups. A brick walk-way replaced sand and pea-gravel in 2004 along with a covered awning the length of the 24 counts. In 2005 8 more courts and a tournament director building were built to get us to where we are at today.

The Tri-County Horseshoe Club of Buffalo, TX has named its facility the Paul Kennedy Horseshoe Pitching Club in honor of Kennedy for his dedication to developing the facility, known as the nicest in the state of Texas, bar none.

With 32 lighted concrete pits, 14 RV hookups, big pavilion, concession stand and the only air conditioned horseshoe pitching complex restrooms in Texas, the complex has been in operation for over 18 years. Tri- County Club hosts half dozen tournaments annually, bringing over 600 people to the Buffalo area each year.
