The course has amazing bones. Lots of hills (bluffs) and the greens are pretty good. The past rounds i've played the greens were sandy... but they weren't today. The back 9 is more fun than the front, and there are two reachable par 5's that can help your score. I wish the finishing couple holes were more interesting, but otherwise it's a nice public track in an area where EVERYTHING is private.

Very much enjoyed playing Bluff Creek, staff was very friendly and helpful. The day was rainy and some water on course because of a hard downpour the day before.

I will definitely be back to play the course, need to do much better on tough number 12 hole

The course was in very good condition. It was early season and you could tell that they were doing a little irrigation work but if you hit it where you were supposed to like down the fairway and on the green, the course was in great shape.

The greens rolled quick which was surprising in the early season and considering the amount of rain we have had.

I found a great value on 18 holes on GolfNow. I think their regular rate was about 20% more which would be pushing it on the value front.

Played Bluff Creek on a Monday during early March warm spell. Considering the time of year, the course was in good shape. Fairways were mostly dry, greens were mowed, but very slow. Great value--less than $33 with cart. There were few players on the course, so I flew around the course as a single with a cart--2 and 1/2 hour round! Surprised there wasn't more play on a 60 degree day in March with so few courses open.

Three things made this a great day. The weather, for November, was in the 60's and 'severe clear', I was playing with my sons and the course was in great shape. I mean, we should be in the 40's by now!

They are still open, so give this course a try. It is pretty much right out there in front of you, so if you are making your shots, you should have a fun, enjoyable round. I didn't lose a ball, which is pretty miraculous for me during a round.

on a bright sunny day after some moderate rainfall the last two days prior, the course was very muddy. some drainage issues as well as ground under repair but not horrible. the greens are a bit fluffy and medium to slow when it comes to speed. Not very many challenging holes but definitely some spots to lose your ball. Some holes can be scenic, on the back nine you have to cross a creek 100 feet above ground on a rickety bridge. We did get to see a bald eagle on the first par 3. Have fun!

Course was in good shape. There were a few holes where stratagy is crucial. The lay up to a flat spot and then a 150 yard shot through a narrow approach over a ravine collected all 4 balls in our 4 some. The greens are crested and most missed puts will run well past the hole. Sometimes leaving you a longer second putt. I dont mind an undulating green but putts that roll off the green on a missed putt are wrong. Stay below the hole always.

The staff is really friendly and accomodating, the course is great, GPS on the carts is a wonderful tool to help with scoring. A really beautiful and fun layout. Some challenging shots but pretty generous fairways and lots of chances to score. Nothing about it feels too hard or unfair, but it's not a pushover either. The greens are nice and true, with some challenge.

It's a little out of my way but I play this course about once or twice a year, and I always enjoy my round here.
