Will Definitely Be Back!

This is a nice course, the 1 handicap hole was definitely the hardest hole and the 5’s, though there’s only 3, were challenging, but not impossible to conquer. I really enjoyed this course and will be back soon.

Excellent course, fun design.

The Weiskolf designed course offers some easy holes mixed in with several others that make you think about your tee shots. Great value in the price. Friendly staff.

One of the best courses in The Dallas area

I live in the Highland Park area and I love driving out to Buffalo Creek and taking this course on. I was a fan before and after all the repairs it is amazing! Beautiful white sand bunkers, great tee boxes, rolling fairways beautiful scenery and smooth , fast greens. A must play for any golfer!

Much Improved

The changes they have put into the course are paying off. Much better sand in the bunkers. The tee boxes, fairways and greens are in great shape. I would not hesitate to go back.

High end neighborhood; high end pricing

The course continues to show improvements following the freeze in February. The sand traps and most tee boxes have been replaced and are in great condition. Fairways play well, but the greens are just ok. I guess being located in an upscale neighborhood warrants the almost double weekend rates than other courses in the areas. The value is lacking as the weekend rate and cart is $75, for a course that isn’t much nicer than others. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Pace of play on this day was crazy slow, and honestly my group didn’t finish the round due to back ups on every hole in the back 9. Incomplete groupings (3 or less) caused delays.

Greens

The Greens are terrible the grain is so bad. Go check out Mesquite golf course greens. Probably 10 to 11 on a stemp meter smooth as glass. Yours are rough grainy. Puts didn’t hold there line. Slow unless down hill.
The rest of the golf course is great. I’ve been playing your course since the 90’s

Was great before now even nicer

Repairs to tee boxes and sand traps are under way but the course is 100% playable and fun! White sand bunkers on a public course like this are rare! So excited to see the completed project but thrilled they are making it playable during the process!

Buffalo Creek

This course was a good buy. Even though about 8 tee box areas were under repair. The greens had been air rated a few weeks prior. Overall course was in good condition, club house and snack bar were great along with the cart girls. Free range balls prior to teeing off. I will play this course ina few weeks after the tee boxes and greens completely come in.

Excited for the finished product but woof…

I friendly disclaimer would’ve been nice that all of the boxes are under repair so you’re essentially playing from the front tees for half the holes and a lot of the boxes are on fairways and a ton of extrapolation required to have a good time. Greens were also punched at the same time which made essentially every aspect of the round have an asterisks. I definitely would not have played if I had know. The conditions. There should be more transparency across all booking sites of what we are getting ourselves into. Near $70 for a round in these conditions in not reasonable. Excited for the changes! But I won’t be back until they’re complete.

Going to be an awesome course

Course largely under construction right now. New management is updating all bunkers and tee boxes. Currently still a good course, but in a few months it will be stunning! Looking forward to coming back! Nice practice areas and super friendly staff.
