This course has a great layout which is fair and challenging. The course is in decent shape except for the bunkers, they are terrible and have been for the last few years. With the amount of consistent traffic this course receives there is no reason the bunkers cannot be upgraded and they have a beverage cart on a busy weekend.

This course has great potential in its layout and you can use most clubs in your bag, however the bunkers are never manicured. Also, there has been a problem with the carts as our cart ran out of juice as did many others. The one I was able to substitute for after getting pushed by another cart for the front 9 had an extremely annoying squeal.

Played the Friday after Thanksgiving, when a lot of people have the day off. The pro shop had one guy workiing in it, both checking people in and answering the phone to take reservations. Needless to say, the check-in process took 15+ minutes. No beverage cart, on a Friday after a holiday. Bunkers were a thin layer of top soil. Our golf cart's battery started running out on hole 16 and we eventually had the other twosome push us to the club house. Once there, several people asked for our working cart because the course had run out of them. I also noticed at least two other carts being towed in because they died. The club house can't make a burger or fries, nothing more than cold sandwiches. The urinal in the men's room was broken. The pace of play was 4.5+ hours.

It's a shame because I enjoy the course layout.

Haven't played here in almost 20 years. Purchased "Hot Deal" for $36. I would not pay a penny more to play golf here. The pace of play was terribly slow. No Marshall's monitoring pace of play and no beverage cart on the course the day we played.

Well it’s time to speak up after consistency in poor experience at this course. They throw people off on both the front and the back with no consideration to the scheduled t time or number of people on the course. They allow the pace of play to deteriorate to an unbearable level. We left after we saw the course ambassador hawking golf balls in the woods while 3 groups were inline on one T Box. What made it so awful was this followed a slow play, to only make the turn and see a group that just arrived T’ing up on the to box behind the group we had been following all day. I don’t understand this level of disrespect from course staff to the payers that are IN PLAY. I play frequently and will welcome the opportunity to share my experience with anyone I can. Something needs to change with how golf courses are managed to bring back at least a minimum amount of Etiquette and respect to the people and the game.

Played this weekend with 2 out of town friends. Friendly staff, got a cheap rate. Course was in decent condition. Back 9 much better than front. Fairways mowed down with tight lies, but with solid turf. Greens on front nine were slow, bumpy bermuda and were marginal. Back 9 they were rolled and much better.

Buffalo Creek is very nice and very aesthetic. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Course conditions were typical. Fairways and greens were in great shape, especially considering the amount of recent rain. The bunkers on the other hand were not so good and not just because of the rain. They haven't drained well in years and need new sand. If you can stay out of them you'll love Buffalo Creek!

+++ Free unlimited range balls.

+++ Check in was great.

+++ Course layout has many good holes

++ Serviced at turn was great.

+ We saw only one other golfer from 12:30 PM to 4:00 PM.

- - - Sand traps were unplayable. Shallow sand. Not maintained. Unraked. Not just one every now and then, but all we observed on the course.

- - Greens were bumpy and slow. Had been recently sanded.
