Improving Conditions

Overall course was in better shape than recently. Greens were very nice, though slow. Fairways are better than have come to expect for this course.

Good course for the average golfer. Some challenging holes, some easier holes.
Course has some muddy areas as well as some bare spots.
Overall it's a fun course to play

No Marshall, not a "Gentleman's Game"

No Marshall, no Cart Girl, Poor Golf Etiquette, Green Rough and Aerated, Fairways poor, burnt, about 65% Fairway Grass, the rest is BURNT or NO GRASS AT ALL.
Me and my buddies have been playing her for almost 15 years.

So bad the foursome in front of us actually came back AND STOLE OUR MONSTER DRIVE from the middle of the fairway on the 12th hole.
When we confronted them, they FLAT OUT LIED ABOUT STEALING OUR BALL.

Fun course in Good shape

I’ve played buffalo creek hundreds of times and it’s always fun. Pretty wide open course that allows you to swing away off the tee. Course was in good shape overall and greens had recently been aerated so not great but decent.

Nice muni course

Fun course that allows you to swing away without getting too penalized for a poor shot. Greens in good shape but the course needs a bit more water or the rainy season needs to kick in to eliminate some of the brown spots.

Right time

We played at the right time. Nobody there, it was supposed to rain. Everybody was very nice. My only negative was the Greens had been airieted( sp), but that's necessary.

Not a great day

Was informed front nine was closed for green work. Had to play front twice. Course is an enjoyable place to play. Greens were okay but a bit thin. Some rough areas but a value for your dollar

Slow play

The fairways are wide and it is relatively easy course. A lot of beginners and hackers so pace is slow. They need someone to manage play by explaining how to improve pace. You can’t help their swing but get to your ball and ready to hit the next shot.
