This course has gone down hill

I used to love coming here when I was younger. As the years have gone on the maintenance for what you pay isn’t as good as it should and used to be. I had 2 first time golfers with me and on the 9th hole we were getting asked to rush through the rest of our playing time. It was very obvious as well. We all paid the same amount of money as everyone else to play. No need to ask us to rush our playing time. We will not be coming here for a very long time or for a while at least, disappointed of a lot of things. Getting asked to rush topped it off. Especially when the boss at the time couldn’t say anything to us and had to send someone else out to talk to us about it.

Regardless of first time golfers, you still need to keep up with the pace, I'm glad they said something. Id suggest starting at Bob o links and a driving range.

First time and last time.

Played this course for the first time yesterday, the initial impression was poor as there are only 15 parking spots and all the buildings are closed and locked off. Not being able to drive carts to the car is a joke. The course is in very rough shape. There is really no general upkeep and the cart path is a very bumpy experience. I could tell on hole 1 that we had overpaid for the thong of gold and we could get much better value going to most other courses around the area. The cart GPS was often many yards off and was not properly calibrated to give accurate distances. They have us a coupon to come back but unfortunately that won’t help. I had high expectations for a club called the “Buffalo Tournament Club” but was very disappointed with the general upkeep and condition of the course for the cost.

Nice layout. Good value

I have always liked playing this course. Hopefully the amenities are opened soon like the halfway house and dining. Starter was friendly and got us out a bit early. The layout is challenging and they have large greens that can be up to a 3-club difference. They have multiple tees as well. I think they need to work on the upkeep a but - tee boxes need broken tee holders and some tee markers were missing. It would be nice to have a ranger or beverage cart as well. Overall, it is a great place to play.

Has potential

This place could be better with small changes. The game play is slow because they stack the tee box Always. People are always playing on top of eachother. Tee times are 30 seconds apart

9 hole options are not available in the evening. It could be 6pm or later and they want to charge full price for 18 holes that you won't be able to play.

Can't drive golf cart to your car, thats really a joke. Grow up

Starter and Marshall's needed.

Began early(7:30AM) to avoid crowd. Front nine went well, then the back nine slowed down. Apparently a group decided to start their round on 10, just ahead of us and caused a considerable slowed down. I believe if there was a starter or Marshall we would have completed our round in 3 hours instead of the 4 hours it took.

A great afternoon

It was a little pricey for the course. Limited beverage service only available at the club house and the rough had a lot of weeds which made it difficult at times to find your ball.

Pace.was.great until a twosome jumped ahead of us on 10 in front of a staff member. Not sure if they were told to play the back nine or not.

Also, you can't take the cart to your car so plan on carrying your bag from the parking lot.

OK but Need Work

I really like the layout of the course and the rates are very reasonable BUT the course is becoming very run down, beat up and messy. First of all there needs to be a starter! The garbage's need to be emptied, (there is garbage all over the place and most garbage cans are full). Some of the tee boxes only had one tee marker and a couple had golf ball boxes with tees stuck through them as tee markers. The ball washers should also be put back out, other courses have them. The course was in pretty good shape but could be taken care of much better. The greens are starting to get pretty beat up.

great layout

Can be very challenging or very friendly depending on the tees. the course conditions have always been questionable, great greens, but fairways are thin ,the rough is spares and inconsistent ,and the bunkers are less than great.some TLC would make this one of my favorites.

Different atmosphere than most coursea

If you like getting drunk and having fun for a reasonable price this is the course for you. Nothing about it is high end. Nothing is super pristine but it’s all decent and a good layout to play a round of golf!

My critique

I thought the course was in decent shape. Greens were surprisingly quick. Tee boxes need work. Also cartpath is in terrible condition. You need to fill in all the holes and pack it down. I know it’s expensive to blacktop it but maybe you could put stones in or something, All in all not a bad course for the money. I would go back again.

Getting better

It looks like they are seeing the light regarding the tall rough in front of many of their greens. They have finally cut those areas down so it is now possible to get your ball to the green even if you are a bit short on your approach shot. Makes the round a lot more enjoyable and keeps play moving. It's been many many years of frustration but they have finally made that one change that makes all the difference.

Slow pace

Course needed starters and rangers. Several fivesomes were playing in front of us making play very slow. They also were starting new groups on 10 in front of us making the turn. Had a tee time at 3PM to make sure we could finish 18 before it got dark and did not appreciate all the extra people they jammed in before us.

this course needs work and so does staff

fairways are not grass but weeds and dirt in some spots and cut done way too low almost to dirt cart paths are atrocious and lumpy better off riding in grass so as not to lose your clubs. there are courses in the area for same money in better shape and holes in greens where people don't repair divots.
