recent reviews said greens were good.... really?

I play alot of public golf. I try to go where the greens are good and I can enjoy trying to put up a decent score by making a few putts. I saw that recent reviews had said Buffalo Creek's greens were good and rolling true. They are not - period. 13 of the 18 greens were burnt out and most of them were dirt/sand with very little grass whatsoever. Terrible. I think they are lost for the summer or even longer. It was disappointing to say the least. No mention of conditions from the clubhouse or the starter. Too bad.

The rest of the course was in pretty good shape. Bunkers had nice packed sand, fairways had good grass, there was a little bermuda rough, and the course layout is fun. It's just hard to enjoy when the greens resemble a mine field or a dirtbox. Pace was very good for a Sunday. A lot of things to like about Buffalo Creek, but the greens are awful.

Last Minute Round

When the owners announced that they were working to return Buffalo Creek back to it's original condition I had my doubts. Having played BC when it first opened, compared to what it had become, I felt it would be a monumental task. Well I am excited to say, they are pretty dang close!

I haven't seen the course in this great of shape since the early 2000's! It is lush to say the least. A few of the greens had a couple of areas that were under repair, but overall they ran true, and were in excellent condition. The reworked tee boxes were amazing, and the fairways were pristine.

Can you tell I was very impressed?

If you haven't play Buffalo Creek in a while give it another try. I think you'll be glad you did.

Challenging test of Golf

This was my second time playing this course
This is a shot makers golf course is a good amount of water on the front and a challenging finishing 3 holes, but if you can hit it straight you don’t need to be crazy long to score.
We got out this weekend at 7am as a twosome and finished in 3:10
The time before was a 10:30 start and 4:20min so pace of play is vey good.
Highly recommended
Note. I heard they will punch the greens June 7

Worth the drive away from the Metroplex

Always a great round at Buffalo Creek. Course is in excellent condition - greens, fairways, tee boxes, bunkers, you name it. Pace is expected to be busy on a Saturday morning, but not terribly slow. Staff was nice enough to let me go on with another single in front of a six-some (who booked 3 and 3 as back to back times) instead of pairing us as singles in their groups.

Love this course layout! Some scorable short par 4 holes, but also some challenge holes where strategy and a precise tee shot can either make for solid hole or a big number (if you take the long route to the hole and miss the fairway).

Definitely love this gem a little further out from Dallas proper. Always a great time! Will be back again soon.

Great course in Rockwall

Traveling to RockWall and wanted to play golf. Tried Golf Now and everything, that is EVERYTHING went as promised and expected. NO hidden surprises or hidden fees. Knew what it would be prior to signing up and it was EXACTLY THAT. A side note, Buffalo creek was a very challenging course, as well as rewarding, if you hit the ball where you should. Definitely will play it again and recommend it to my golf buddies.

first time back in 10 years

I had been to Buffalo Creek in about 10 years. Most of it was the same with some new bunkers and what looked like improved drainage. The bunkers were really nice. Bermuda grass was still trying to come in and the greens were really bumpy and crusty. Not too bad for transition time though. The layout is pretty fun with a few shorter holes and a few demanding ones. I was fortunate enough to reach the par 5's in two, which is always fun. Practice area could use a little TLC but the free range balls were nice. Starter also got us a course yardage book, which was very nice and I used it a few times. Pace was pretty slow, but it was a Saturday afternoon on Easter weekend. All in all, glad to have gone back and might try it again once the grasses come in.

Excellent Golf Course!

Wow, what a fun course! For this time of year course was in great shape. Lots of grass in the fairways, and greens were rolling quick and true. This is kind of a hidden gem for me. It will be in spectacular shape in about 3-5 weeks with some rain.

Nice overall

Good layout, a few challenging holes where course knowledge is a must, but nothing gimmicky. Greens definitely need to improve but the regulars that I played with spoke favorably about the course owners' commitment and progress so far.

Great Condition

Buffalo Creek is a great golf course. The condition of the course is very nice especially with this Texas heat. The course is easy and challenging at the same time. Just have to know when to lay up and avoid the trouble. If it was not so far away I would play it more.
