Big Buffalo Surprise

We had an unbelievable time at the course. We played three times over this past weekend. The greens were perfect. You can tell the course is in a positive transition. They have done some really nice work on the back nine.It was a lot more challenging than we thought. We will never forget the 9th. Really thin fairway into the green that you can reach with a big drive. Audobon's staff was so nice to us, made us feel like we were members of the club. We are already planning on playing the course in the future.

Tee Time Booked to close together

The price was reasonable for 18 holes. The conditions were okay, almost every tee box was in rough shape. The greens were in good shape. My biggest issue was how closely the tee times were booked together. The Starter was very stressed out, he told us they were booking tee times 3 minutes apart. Also, out tee time booked on golf now wasn’t even in their system, and they had another group booked at the same time. The whole round we had the group behind us playing up the whole round. The starter should be at the first tee and should tell the next group when to start. Instead they just send everyone up to the first tee and have them wait in line, and it ruins the pace for everyone.

Mr. Feher, First off we appreciate the review and apologize for the poor experience in getting you and your group to the first tee. Our tee time intervals run at 10 minutes to avoid this exact scenario. The fact that your online reservation was not found in our tee sheet and we had to "squeeze" your group out is unacceptable. Please reach out to ndowhan@audubonamherstgolf. to further discuss. We hope to see you again soon!

Facilities

The course was in fair shape for October. The rough was deep and a ball could be lost only a few feet from the fairway.
The main complaint I have is the facilities! The bathroom reeked of urine. You had to breath through your mouth to avoid gagging.
There were people I assumed were managers in offices not 10 feet from the bathroom door but I doubt it had been cleaned in weeks.
Forget about eating anything there. If they can't clean a BR so goes the kitchen I'm sure.
I'm sure they'll say their short staffed...but a clean bathroom should remain usable for a couple of weeks I would think.

The rough was too long which killed the pace of game and some of the tee boxes were bad

Decent but some major faults

Decent quality but very little signage (tee #, hole layout) and no standing yard marker. Not a great experience for a first time visitor.

Tee boxes were terrible. Littered with tees. Course was not well marked. No ball washers. No selection of food at the turn, only a micro wave rubber hamburger. Carts were in poor condition and dirty.

Mostly nice could use a little help

First I want to say that any employee I had contact with was professional and friendly. My main cause of frustration was this being my first time there, I managed to get lost twice looking for the next tee box. Some of the signs were missing and it made it quite difficult to determine if I was indeed in the proper place. I hope that the signage gets fixed and others can enjoy this course.

overpriced!!

there are many courses around WNY that offer a better value. The course wasnt in good shape the signs guiding to the next hole were atrocious, What I paid was far too much ($38 after fees) I would never pay full price. Amherst residents deserve better!

Rough tee boxes

The course needed to be rolled as it was very bumpy. The tee boxes were awful with large areas of bare mud. Greens were in decent shape.

Nice layout

When you look at what kind of spring we had very very very wet the grounds crew did an excellent job . I drove by in the spring and I wouldn't never thought they would get their course in that kind of condition. I enjoyed myself yesterday Amherst should you should be proud of the course that you have after the spring we had.
