Buffalo Grove Golf Course
Buffalo Grove Golf Club is an 18-hole municipal course that offers an enjoyable round for players of all skill levels. The gently rolling terrain is covered with mature trees and wetlands, all of which provide challenges on the course. In addition to the natural hazards, there are a few strategically placed bunkers lurking throughout. Accuracy will be helpful when maneuvering the tree-lined fairways but it's not a terribly punishing golf course. There are a few tricky spots, but overall it's a forgiving and player-friendly layout. It's ideal for beginners and also good for a quick and casual round for any skill level. The golf course's affordability is another appealing aspect of the course. Buffalo Grove G.C. also offers a practice facility with a 25-station driving range and pitching and chipping greens.

The fairways are not well manicured, the greens are also a bit longer than they should be, but the course is otherwise playable. The layout is ordinary with little slope and is curiously punctuated with huge fairway bunkers within driving distance, on multiple holes. Probably a good beginner’s course.
The staff is too rude for me...so many other courses that make you feel like they’re happy to see you & glad you’re there. Not this one at all—this is not the first time I’ve experienced rudeness here but it is definitely the last
Great place for a business outing
Great course with a friendly staff. Brought a large group that was well accommodated. Lexi and Lindsey were great servers! Food is also top notch! Finally, one of our party members lost a phone in a returned cart and the staff worked together via radio and swiftly located it. Strongly recommend for a party!
Another high quality public course
I’m amazed at the quality of the public courses in Chicago. I’m on vacation from Australia This course is just another example. Challenging for the low handicap player & not too difficult for the weekend golfer. I really enjoyed the layout. I’ll be back again for sure
The course did its best given the very wet conditions we have had. Weather was best in many weeks so it was crowded. Would like to come back on a "normal" day.
great staff, great course
staff really makes this place great - nice little grass range for warmup as well
This course has great features
First time playing great experience . Course is maintained and challenging . Staff very friendly
Fantastic course and staff... travel from Florida amd always make sure we stop by the course to get a round in! Great food, great course and staff makes this a must go to spot!
All the Basics with a Few Surprises
I have played Buffalo Grove 10+ times over the last few years, and I plan to continue playing it as long as I am in the area. At just under 6,700 yards from the back tees, Buffalo Grove plays longer than most municipal courses in the area. The front 9 is fairly straight-forward, with the only real challenges being a few select small greens and a 210+ yard par 3. It acts as a good warm-up to the back 9, which has a few more obstacles including a long & tight fairway on #10, and water that is waiting to eat up any errant tee shots on 6 of the 9 holes. Course conditions are usually pretty solid, although this week there were a few "ground under repair" areas on the fairways. Greens were in great shape. I make it a point to play here once a year because the course forces you to use every club in your bag and you can usually get out for a decent price.
Always good fun at BG....course plays well for all ages/handicaps. We had a blast with a threesome of single digit, newer teenage player, and a senior citizen who can’t fly it like he used to. The nice sand puts some snazzy country clubs to shame. Greens aren’t the fastest, but roll nicely with minimal bumps and unfixed marks. Cold water plentiful on tees. Snack cart diligently racing between groups. Good overall value.
