Improvement from previous play

Course was in decent shape and the gators and turtles were a sight to see. I am headed back to PA soon but plan to watch for good deals next year. Hope to play a few times.

Course excellent value for money.

Had not played the course in a year. Very impressed with the noticeable improvement in the quality of the fairways and fast and superior quality of the greens. Excellent value for money.

Chipin

Liked the layout. Fairways were pretty good and greens we're in surprisingly good shape but the condition of some of the roughs wasn't very good. It's ok course to play and I enjoyed it, but don't think I'd go back

Changed t-times & extremely slow play

We booked on Golf Now, arrived somewhat early to warm up and our scheduled t-time had been moved up without any notice. Rushed to t-box to play through a 5+ hour round. Saw Rangers, they appear to be there for show, not pace of play.

Miss lead by reviews

The course played slow due to overbooking. There were to many twosomes, they needed to pair people. Overbooking is result of in business to make money not serving the customer. I never saw the ranger during play.
The course fairways were in reasonable shape but the rest of course needs lots of attention.
In addition the holes are improperly numbered. The front and back nine were switched and the have not corrected the numbers yet.
I read the reviews and after playing not sure we were playing same course.
I would prefer to be writing a positive review and played in regulation time. Perhaps if the ranger were visible the double ball hitting, slow play, and more then four in a group would not have happened.

Thanks for the opportunity to review and hopefully the management will consider looking into the simple but necessary fixes.

Bad Decision

I am a vacation renter from another country who loves to golf,. We are staying very close to Buffalo Creek and thought we would try it out seeing that it was a “Municipal” course. In its defence the course has very nice fairways but that’s as far as it goes. Sand traps although originally raked in the money has no rakes near the traps, bal washers were in need of repair or were bone dry. The rough was just that “rough” The greens were Ok but when you consider the course fee for this grade of course with these conditions its a total rip off.
Why would you pay 50.00 US to pay on a toilet course. The on course restrooms had clogged toilets and the men’s room was locked leaving men and women to use the same room. There was a pleasant beverage cart but a”Marshall” or Players Attendant” was never found on the course
I will never again play at this track..It should be paved over and made into just that...A track. Are golfers really this stupid..Play courses nearby like Manatee or Peridia but cross Buffalo Creek off your “to-do” list

Very Poor Conditions

The course has great staff but the conditions of the course were terrible. The greens were covered in sand and there were so many spots in the rough that had no grass that some lies were completely unplayable.
