Very enjoyable

Great course for the price...wide open for most shots...several challenges with water and bunkers around greens. Played with 2 locals, John and Mike who made me feel welcome...broke 90 (88) which is good for me this early in the year (3rd round since November)

Great Shape

The course is in great shape right now. The greens are especially good, although they play a bit slow so make adjustments.
Price is great for the conditions and the pace.

Double Dip

Paid for foursome. 1 of my golfers failed to show thought we should play as a threesome. They put somebody with us so therefore they made double the mine on my dime.

Worth the drive

I have been wanting to get out here and to its sister course nearby but since the greens were being punched, I came here and glad I did. Paired with two locals who were able to guide me on the little details you can’t see from the tee. Great for walking, finished in 4 hours, weather was perfect and the conditions were fantastic. It’s nice to see for the most part that players actually repair their ball marks here. The greens rolled medium fast and very smooth. Fairways were in excellent shape as were most of the tee boxes. The bunker I played out of had nice consistent sand. Overall a great day and I would definitely return.

Not to tough

Nice course for mid to high handicap players, Quite forgiving. The greens are a bit soft which makes them rather slow. Normally the pace is decent, but the last two times I played there I had some tournament play in front of me slowing things down. Overall I always enjoy playing this course.

Solid conditions

So I live 5 minutes from the course and grew up playing here, I haven’t played Buena for a few years. I remember it as being short and in semi good condition.. Well that has changed. They have done a great job of making the course into a fun track. It isn’t long, even from the black tees, but you still need to put the ball in play to score well. The tee boxes are in great shape. The fairways are well taken care of. And the greens were soft yet fast. I will be back soon.

Great day

Played here a couple of times while passing through the area. Both times we got a good rate from GN. The staff was wonderful and very helpful in getting us dialed in! Never had to wait, got pair3d up with some very nice local players. All in all it was worth the stop.

Buenaventura is a great tract for golfers seeking shorter courses. The Blue tees were about 5800 yds and offered a good challenge for a senior golfer. The. Course layout included water hazards, a lot of bunkering around the greens, visually intimidating tee boxes and near blind approach shots. The course is well maintained and both fairways and greens were in great shape. Overall this was a fun course to play and a fantastic value.

11am start time

I really enjoyed my round here a few days ago. The one thing that was a surprise is they don’t have an actual driving range, you hit into nets. The course was in very very good condition on the greens, fairways, and tee boxes. The clean fairways and short course make this a very getable course, but it’s a great layout for the space they have to work with (hence no driving range). Don’t let the short yardage fool you though bc they did a GREAT job on the greens. No greens are flat and easy so they make you work for your birdies. It’s all about positioning yourself from tee to green here. I’d hit from the blacks to give you the courses full layout.
