Great layout, poor maintenance and no amenities

BTC has the potential to be a wonderful course. Its layout makes it a nice track and many holes are challenging without being punitive for the average player. But, the course itself suffers from poor maintenance. I used to play it as my regular course, but I now go elsewhere. I played it once in 2021. There were giant gouges on some of the holes and the greens were a bit beaten up. There is no clubhouse and the snack bar at the turn is still closed. This could be a really great course, but the money doesn’t seem to be there to make the necessary improvements.

Watch your wallet

Charged for a player through Golfnow that did not show up although when I checked in I was told it was not a problem. Never had this happen at any golf course around Buffalo.
Our green fees were 39.00 but had to pay Golfnow 42.00 for the no show!
I have played this course regularly but they have lost my future business!
Very short sighted!

Great greens

The course has a great layout , beautiful greens, most holes aren’t very difficult,. A few holes on the back 9 are gorgeous! The cart paths and some tee boxes need work , but that doesn’t affect play. They need to open a clubhouse , but it’s a great course for the price.

Disappointed in service

First let me state that I made an error in not seeing the start time for coupons was 11 am and later. So I make a tee time for 10:11 am.

My good friend and I drive up from Rochester and got there at 9:40 am...plenty of time for our start time. A light mist was falling and windy but we still wanted to play.

Young man in pro shop was pleasant and did his best to state that my coupon would not be valid until 11 am. He said the owner was very particular about these situations and would not let us out before 11 using the coupon. My mistake yes.

But on September 24th...10 cars in the parking lot...not allowing us to play earlier than 11 am seemed to me ridiculous give the time of year, the number of golfers out on the course and weather conditions. Can't use the coupon now as expires and will be out of town. My bad, but "Come on Man"!!!!

Management needs to be addressed

Management needs to improve on how they treat golfers. The success of any business depends on repeat business which the management does not seem to comprehend, shown by the way they treat golfers. I golf at a lot of courses around Buffalo and have never been treated as poorly as I have at Buffalo Tournament Club.
Management is rude, condescending and lack the skills to manage a successful business.

Not worth it

This course is absolute garbage. They overbook and the pace of play is terrible. It takes almost 6 hours on the weekend. The condition is no better, cart paths are ruined and bumpy every step of the way, its easier to drive on the grass but you still have to watch out for random holes. Tee boxes are never repaired and the greens are dry. It looks like they don’t even maintain the course. The staff can be incredibly rude as well. Not worth $20 per round. It looks exactly the same as it has years ago and the owner won’t open the snack shop to sell burgers or drinks - too lazy to hire someone.

Waste of money and time

Buffalo tournament club is a waste. Beautiful layout but terrible on everything else. $100 to play 18, not anything worth that - I’d rather go anywhere else. Fairways rough look just about the same (minimal grass) and greens are brutal too. The green on the second hole has has a tree root growing through it and popping out. No course maintenance at all and I can’t imagine how this is worth $100. Terrible, I’d never play there and will tell everyone I know to not play there either.

Could Be Fantastic

The general layout, and natural landscape could make this a top 10 public course. The condition and general upkeep make it a bottom 10. Cart paths horrendous, greens okay, fairway to rough - hard to tell the difference. Traps - horrible, Hole Signage is non existent .
BUT what it could be! Challenging par 3’s - nice mix in the layout and use of trees, and the land.

Unprofessional

New Clubhouse has never been opened. Halfway house hasn't been open in at least 2 years. No starters. No Marshall's Cart paths are like a war zone. They say they can't find help. That's a lie. All surrounding courses have no problem. The owner is operating on the cheap. Not even a cold drink vending machine. This place is a joke. It's easy to understand why this place has such a horrible reputation.

No amenities

There was zero food there other than chips. We were starving and wanted to eat before we teed off or certainly at the turn. Nothing. No convenience stores or restaurants nearby neither. Fix this and rating goes to a 5.

Could be SO much better

This course could be so much better, but chooses not to. I play in a League every week and I’ve never been more disappointed. Course conditions have been poor all year and the on course amenities are terrible. No tee markers on some holes, no ball washers, and the pro shop just opened up a few weeks ago more than half way into the season. They have a lot of work to do before they are labeled a serious golf course.

Don't waste your money here

I don't recommend people go here. They charge people under a certain age $100 a round after 4PM. No other course in WNY charges this much. I have golfed here when they allowed 5, 6, and even 7 out at a time. I have had some of the longest rounds here in WNY. Course is always in rough shape and poorly maintained. Not worth the money or time. Would rather not golf then go here.

This course has no after golf amenities

Course conditions are very bad. They just don't take good care of this course. Traps, rough, greens, tee boxes all need a lot of attention. I played 55 rounds at area public courses this year and this is the worst. Played it twicethis year. No interest in going back.t

Getting Better

Course was in great shape this year. Still needs an investment to repair some pretty rough cart paths and numerous bare patches in the rough areas on many holes. The tee boxes also need attention on many holes. The greens were generally in good shape and putting is usually very consistent. They need to continue to make upgrades to the course to get their rating into a “4” range
