Haven't played here in almost 20 years. Purchased "Hot Deal" for $36. I would not pay a penny more to play golf here. The pace of play was terribly slow. No Marshall's monitoring pace of play and no beverage cart on the course the day we played.

Well it’s time to speak up after consistency in poor experience at this course. They throw people off on both the front and the back with no consideration to the scheduled t time or number of people on the course. They allow the pace of play to deteriorate to an unbearable level. We left after we saw the course ambassador hawking golf balls in the woods while 3 groups were inline on one T Box. What made it so awful was this followed a slow play, to only make the turn and see a group that just arrived T’ing up on the to box behind the group we had been following all day. I don’t understand this level of disrespect from course staff to the payers that are IN PLAY. I play frequently and will welcome the opportunity to share my experience with anyone I can. Something needs to change with how golf courses are managed to bring back at least a minimum amount of Etiquette and respect to the people and the game.

Played this weekend with 2 out of town friends. Friendly staff, got a cheap rate. Course was in decent condition. Back 9 much better than front. Fairways mowed down with tight lies, but with solid turf. Greens on front nine were slow, bumpy bermuda and were marginal. Back 9 they were rolled and much better.

Buffalo Creek is very nice and very aesthetic. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Course conditions were typical. Fairways and greens were in great shape, especially considering the amount of recent rain. The bunkers on the other hand were not so good and not just because of the rain. They haven't drained well in years and need new sand. If you can stay out of them you'll love Buffalo Creek!

+++ Free unlimited range balls.

+++ Check in was great.

+++ Course layout has many good holes

++ Serviced at turn was great.

+ We saw only one other golfer from 12:30 PM to 4:00 PM.

- - - Sand traps were unplayable. Shallow sand. Not maintained. Unraked. Not just one every now and then, but all we observed on the course.

- - Greens were bumpy and slow. Had been recently sanded.

I've played this course for years, had stopped because of overbooking tee times. The club house was a mess, not properly trained personnel, horribly understaffed. The concession stand closed early with golfers still on the course, not a cart person in sight.

My buddy and I played Buffalo Creek for the first time yesterday. I really liked the course (outside of the bunkers being closer to asphalt than sand), but with a few exceptions the staff left something to be desired.

When we arrived, we were told we would need to wait for a cart. Fifteen minutes before our tee time we were able to get on, that we had to clean out ourselves. The cart died on the way to the first tee. We were able to swap to a different cart and start our round. Through the round, this cart became increasingly slower until we actually had to help push it up hills on the 13th hole. We called the clubhouse and were told that someone would bring us a cart. They never showed. The other people playing with us were kind enough to use their cart to push us anytime we weren't going downhill for the rest of the round.

When we were finally pushed to the clubhouse at the end of the round, the gentleman working didn't seem concerned. He initially offered just me a free weekday round (ignoring my buddy who was also in the cart and was standing right next to me). We live roughly 45 minutes to an hour away, so that wasn't going to happen. He reluctantly wrote on a piece of random paper that we could have a free weekend round.

Outside of a few maintenance issues, I really liked the course itself. That's the unfortunate part as I really don't see myself going back.

Course was ok but expected a lot more for $60 green fee. No GPS units in golf cart, carts are old. We got behind 2 different groups and both were slow. Took 5 1/2 hours to play 18. No course marshalls to help speed people up. Beverage cart saw 1x on a Saturday out of 18 holes.

This course is always in good condition. Greens roll true and the fairways are great. Went on a super windy day and cart path only but allowed me to get 18 in super quick.

I've played this course around 5 times and is always in nice shape. Sure, you pay a bit more than a muni course but the quality justifies the green fee.

This was once one of the best courses in the state. Besides the layout, American Golf has let everything else get to a point of an average muni at best. What a shame! Bad tee boxes, bad bunkers, average greens and fairways have made this a below average course.

Buffalo creek use to be a beautiful course I loved to play but when I played April 9th it was terrible first the price went from 50.00 to 60.00 I don't mind paying for a nice course but as long as the quality is there the fairways were so dry cracks were forming in the ground the greens were worse than ever the bucket were hard as the concreat.I hope the get on top if these issues because I really like playing this course.
