A joke !

This course has a very good layout, but the conditioning is VERY bad for what they charge! Every year I think it will get better, but the conditioning is the same. Weeds in fairways and on some greens! I think in the last few years all their money went to their slowly built clubhouse. If you are not going to properly maintain the course, DONT charge the same as properly maintained and Better courses! Golfers are FOOLISH to play here. For the same price you can play much better and well maintained courses in WNY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tee Boxes and Some Fairways in Rough Shape

Buffalo Tournament Club has potential to be one of the nicest public courses in the area. However. the tee boxes are very torn up and its hard to find a good place to tee off. Many of the fairways also have an excessive amount weeds growing making the course look sloppy.

Once a Year

The non-progress of this course continues. Fine layout but poor maintenance. You can't blame the Coronavirus for weeds, bare patches, and ruts in the fairways; traps need work. Greens are large and better maintained. Cart paths need significant work.

Disappointed

Me and 3 other buddies from work would head out to BTC last year in the morning to get 9 holes in before heading into the office. They were always very accommodating and we had no issues getting off around 6am and being done before 8am. We played BTC this morning for the first time this year assuming they would have a 9 hole rate. Unfortunately when we got there we found out they don't have a 9 hole rate during the pandemic. Not really sure why that would be the case but it will more than likely result in our foursome not returning to play BTC this year. Well maybe one more time to use our $15 rain check which will result in us paying $22 for 9 holes which I have no issue with at all. Put in a 9 hole rate for $22.00 and you can pencil our foursome in once/week at 6am. Hope you listen to your customers, thanks.

Fun but needs work

The upkeep on the greens is fair and the course is fun and challenging. The biggest gripe I have is the sand traps. There’s actually weeds growing in them at this point. I can’t wait to finally get to see the clubhouse after this pandemic is over. Overall I do believe if they had more staff This could be a wonderful course. As of right now it is a good course.

Over priced for what it is .

This could be a very nice upper end course in the area. It’s just not there yet. The up keep and lack of progress on the course doesn’t match the price. For the price you can find much better courses in the area that’s way nicer. There’s a lot of work to be done here but potential.

Decent price. Not maintained

The course itself was fine and I have no issues with its layout. The main issue is many of the cart paths are poorly maintained with bumps and holes leading to many spilled drinks.

Some areas before the green and on the fairway had unkempt dry patches with dirt clearly visible.

Overall I think if some extra money and effort was put into maintenance the course could be much much better. Price point was fair. Didn’t hate it but it could be vastly better.

A Regular

Looking forward to the clubhouse finally!!! Conditions were a little rough this year at times but
Hopeful they will get better and more consistent. Cash flow may be limited for this independently owned course and am hoping the clubhouse will generate more play and course revenue to allow it to elevate it up a few more notches. I Truly enjoy playing here and look forward to great improvements for 2020 !!

Diamond in the rough

The layout of the course is visually appealing.. 5 tee boxes give any level of player an opportunity to find their game. Greens are enormous and subtle.

Putting green is strategically placed. The driving range is large and near the pro shop.

While the course is not perfect. The current management is making an effort to make the course better.

One suggestion is to add ball washers to all holes.

Potential is good, but not meeting potential

The greens are big and fair. They roll pretty well. But completely around each green is approx. 20-30 yds of rough...the fairway does not go all the way to the green! I don’t care for this at all! The course seems to be run with minimal staff and care. They have been working on a new clubhouse for over a year! We were told that it would be up and running by Sept. 2018, but in Oct. 2019 it is still not done! If the course received the appropriate attention this could be a really fine course! But, unfortunately, they have chosen to do as little as possible. The carts have not been cleaned in two years, and are filthy! It’s an ok course for locals, but there are much better courses in the area that are much more worth the money. For what you get here, it’s over-priced!

Fine - could use some TLC

Not sure why there’s negativity around this course. I’ve found it to have good value - far better than some other similarly priced local options like Audobon or Rothland.

Big greens that roll true. Most tee boxes need help. Several interesting holes on each nine.

Great Layout-Overpriced

BTC is an interesting layout and the greens are excellent, but the fairways are often in poor condition. The greens fee w/cart ($37) is higher than some other public courses in the area that are as well designed and much better maintained.

Still, the friendly staff and interesting layout makes it worth playing, especially if you can get a discounted rate. Special deals are available.

We have played this course many times over the past few years. We all agree we like the layout but hate the condition of the course. the ruffs are not consistently mowed, the fairways are in fair condition. The greens are , for the most part okay. We find the fact the every green is completely surrounded by 3-4 inch rough is not to our liking. The course needs better maintenance. We will try again next season, but if improvement isn't there, we will not play again....

Fix approaches to greens

Every green, even the par threes should have an opening of fairway cut about 10 yds wide.Then you would have a great and very playable course.,for all golfers, and probably attract more customers.

Course needs work

Cart paths need work. Fairways need work. Holes in #3 fairway have been there for years. Rarely see anyone working on the course other cutting the grass. The greens are OK. I took a lesson from Ben a couple months ago,Good guy,Big help. The sand traps are not good.The pace is OK. The starters are good.
