A must play in Kalispell!
If you've never played this course, it's definite a MUST. Don't even hesitate!
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.
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
Fun tree lined course with excellent greens and staff.
We played Buffalo Hills on a very clear but warm day. The opening holes have blind shots in all of them and can cause a bit of a slow start as you really needed to drive up and be sure you were not potentially hitting into someone. The staff did point this out which was helpful but playing it for the first time made it a bit tricky. After the first four holes this all changes and once you find the fifth tees, they are marked well but you tend to not believe them at first. The course then lines up with wonderful sight lines and play moves along fairly well. You had better be fond of evergreens as they line and guard just about every fairway. This adds a beauty as well as a challenge to this course.
The course was in excellent shape. The fairways were well groomed and the greens ran very true and quick. There is also plenty of elevation change in the early and late parts of the round.
The staff were extremely nice from the front desk, starter and cart girl (very important on this hot day). The starter had asked a foursome , who were actually waiting on their fourth player, if they would allow us to tee off ahead since being a twosome. They reluctantly agreed and ended up catching us due to those first four holes being slow because of the blind spots and on holes five and six hit into us as we were leaving the green. Problem fixed by letting them play in front of us the rest of the way for our own safety and of course waited on every shot. Not the cause of the course but one due to the seldom encountered lack of decency and etiquette of golfers. My only complaint to the course would be the fact that this foursome played with three sets of clubs. Never hve seen this allowed any where else we have played.
That being said and our fixing the issue if we were ever to be in Kalispell again we would gladly tee it up at Buffalo Hill as it is a very worthy course and now we have some basic knowledge of how to attack it.
Beautiful course, cart paths awful
Great course but the cart paths are really bad. They are very uneven, jarring.
Golfing is always better than work. Being in the mountain areas makes it special
Great course play my best game ever 78, +1 on front 9 but fell apart on back. Awesome day but slow play
Buffalo Hills is Great!
Great reception at check in. Bucket of balls for warm up, good cart, and good pace of play. Sprinkles of rain on holes 2-5, but great skies after that. Prettycourse.
Great course with ups and downs.
This course has a lot of blind shots and dog legs. This was the first time we played here. We are glad the course wasn't busy so we could drive forward and see where the pin was and how to play our next shot. Staff was very friendly, the course was in great shape and the greens were soft.
Great Day !
The course was in great shape.
There was dykeing in place as a precaution for
flooding but was hardly in play.
Excellent Shape' Staff are fantastic
Other than the layout of the course, a few holes require driving ahead to see if it's clear to hit, then driving back, and not a fan that the 9th hole does not return to the vicinity of the clubhouse.
We have travelled here to play this course for over 30 years, twice a year.
Enjoyed our day. Lots of sand bagging on 4 holes course in such great shape- hope no damage occurs from any flooding.
