Course is in good shape. Pretty good greens. Little disappointed in some of the tee boxes. For such a nice course and good layout, such an easy issue to address. I'd play here again especially for $20. Definitely better than some of the other courses on here that are rated better.

No cart girl, tee boxes were dirt and torn up, weeds all around the tee boxes and slow pace. Could be a great course but no attention to detail.

The course is in good shape and has a nice layout. We had a 1:56 pm tee time. But due to the slow play of the group in front of us and failure of the clubhouse staff to call groups to the tee box, we did not tee off until around 2:15 pm. We paid $65 for a 1:56 pm tee time. At 2:00 pm the twilight rate kicked in which was $30. It is very poor customer service to book a tee time 4 minutes before the rate is cut in half. Especially since we didn't tee off through no fault of ours until after 2 pm. The chance of playing the course again anytime soon is slim. Very poor tee time scheduling.

Well at least you were able to play, I called last summer, booked a tee time for 4 of us, thought I was set until my party showed up and were told we didnt have a tee time. We all 4 drove from different locations, Dallas, Rowlett, Wylie. They didnt even try to accommodate us at all, just said sorry we are booked. They said we didnt have a tee time. I play golf and know how the courses get booked, now why would I just show up without a tee time on a Saturday? Poor customer service and management, I also vowed never to go their again.

Had trouble getting the first tee in the ground it was so dry! The course looks to have gotten way too much play with way too little care for the t boxes. The sand was perfectly manicured the t boxes not so much. We aborted our round at the turn due to a total log jam. Hackers had taken over the course. Not sure how to better manage that but they need to figure it out. They have a nice layout in a pretty nice setting but there is nothing special about this course. Don't pay over $20 to play it!

The tee boxes and fairways were in great shape. Rough was deep but playable. Unfortunately they had just dumped a load of sand on the greens and never said a word about it. Good layout and at $25 you really can't beat it. Would of had a better time if the greens were puttable.

I don't know what is going on in Rockwall. Each year of my 15 years in the area the golfing experience has declined. RGAC is overpriced. Buffalo Creek is slow and messy. Buff used to be a fantastic track but now lacks starters, ambassadors and even the snack cart isn't out on a Sunday over the holiday weekend. Even the course is starting to suffer as players are not maintaining divots anymore than they are taking 3-4 shots off the tee and from sand traps that are a mess. It's really sad ... at least they are pricing it like it plays.

Our foursome played the course for the first time and it met and exceeded all expectations. First of all, the staff was the friendliest we have ever encountered and that included when making our tee time one week in advance. We loved the course. We found it challenging and very fair. Holes 6 and 16 are two of the best you will find anywhere. We look forward to playing Buffalo Creek again!
