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.

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!
