Nice Course

Nice and fun course. We enjoyed every hole except 17. The entire fairway is on a steep slope to the left. The ball generally rolls down to the bottom of of the slope into the rough everywhere on 17.

Friendly staff, great carts, course was very good, but a bit wet from previous night rain.

Men should hit from blue or gray tees. Seniors may choose white with the shortest tees being green. 8 of the 18 holes had the white and green tees at the same location.

Love the course

We love this course and have played here on vacation for 40 years.
Our only complaint is although we got a golf now deal of the day, when the course is in this condition where the greens are punched and sanded, I would have been very frustrated to have to pay a full green fee. In this condition, all green fees should be reduced.

Buffalo hills

Good challenging course but played backed up today. Need a course marshal to keep slow players moving. Still was a good day.

Okay Course

Blind tee shots on almost every hole.. fairly challenging- lots of narrow fairways... if you can get the hot deal for less than $40 including a cart, it would be more worth it.

Liked it for the Third Time

Third time playing Buffalo Hills in a month. I really like this course. This course has so many unusual fairways I just find it fun to play. I had become my go to course whenever in the Whitefish/Kalispell area. I especially like the Golf Now Hot Deals that were offered this summer.

Very good Golf Now Desl

My wife and I played this course 4 weeks ago and again 2 days ago. Playing again today. Course is challenging and having some advice or experience is very helpful. Some very interesting undulations but we feel this makes the round more fun. A couple of tough elevation changes but for the most part a walkable course. My favourite course in Whitefish/Kalispell.

Technical Gun Course

Been to Whitefish/Kalispell a lot over the years and and have played most of the local courses but never Buffalo Hills. I read some reviews that made it sound questionable but I can honestly say it is a fun course to play. We were lucky to be paired with a couple who had played it a lot and offered some very good advise on club selection and ball placement. Some local knowledge saved a lot of strokes and lost balls. Without it, the first time playing could disappoint some golfers. However, once you get the lay of the land you find out you can’t just bomb every par 4 and 5 with a driver or even a 3 wood. There are terrific elevation changes, sloped fairways and strategic hazards. All can be navigated but you have to know your yardage and hit your shots. If you like a course that challenges all the clubs in your bag you will enjoy this track.

This course is beautiful with huge trees

We enjoy playing at Buffalo Hills however today was very slow as the group ahead had 4 golfers and there was only 2 of us. Had a good first round until we caught up to them. Would have been nice if they had offered to let us play through or if there was a course marshall which we did not see one. This is a beautiful course and would recommend it to anyone

Great course friendly staff

Course and staff were great. Although the 4some in front of us held up the game by over an hour. We had 4 2somes held up after the 4some began play on hole 10. A Marshall should have been out to move them along.

The beer cart sat parked by hole 5 in the shade. Didn’t say anything to us just waived as we drove by and then on hole 16 she just drove right by. No wave no hello.

Other than that the day was awesome.

Great day for golf

Our round was very enjoyable. The course was not busy and we got out a bit earlier than our time. We played in under 4 hours. Every hole has unique challenges. This is a must play every time we are in the area.

Sept 12

A brief thunderstorm delay, but overall a very good experience.
Course conditions were average- greens kind of rough and bumpy; some areas that the irrigation doesn't get too on the fairways (dry spots), and nobody rakes any of the sand traps?? Overall I gave conditions 4 stars as other than these specific things it was pretty good. It is a fun and challenging track, and helps to have some previous course knowledge.

They need a marshall

We love Buffalo Hill Golf Course, BUT found out that playing on a Sunday afternoon in September will be very slow play. We played a foursome behind a twosome and waited on every shot. They finally dropped off and then we played behind three other foursomes the rest of the round. On hole number 10 there were four groups. We really got tired of waiting, but finished out the round just before it got too dark to see. Play was WAY too slow
