About

Holes 18
Type Public/Municipal
Style Links
Par 72
Length 7411 yards
Slope 130
Rating 74.7

Buffalo Run Golf Course is a locally acclaimed 18-hole, municipal course in Commerce City. The links-style layout covers 7,411 yards from its longest tees with a par of 72. Designed by Keith Foster, there are challenging elements such as water hazards and bunkers that come into play on the course. The wind creates difficulty on this golf course. Buffalo Run Golf Course's front nine is less challenging than the back nine but it builds up good practice for the second half of the game. One hole to note is the demanding 13th hole. It is a par-3 that has a well-placed bunker near the green.

Great Golf Course

Buffalo run has been under construction/repair for quite some time. I hope the grounds crew can get it back in 18-Hole play soon. The only reason course conditions received 3stars was because of that ongoing work. The green fee reflects that accordingly and gets instant forgiveness accordingly. Come play a course with 18 fair holes. This summer, you’ll be in for a treat!

Great greens & layout, horrible conditions otherwise

It’s so sad because Buffalo run is an awesome layout. The greens are in excellent shape for January in Colorado. The fairways and the rough just about the worst I have ever seen in my 50 years of golf. Don’t know if this beckons back to poor construction, or whether there was some gross error management. The nice thing is they have lowered the green fee by some 50%.

Good day for golf

A beautiful November day. The course was in rough shape on several holes still. I know they have been working on the course for a long time but I thought it would be much better by now. I just want to see the course back the way it used to be.

Reconstruction seemingly gone extremely bad

Compared to the conditions a year ago this course has fallen head first off a cliff. I hope it somehow turns a positive corner but based off what I saw and having broke a wedge in half in what was called a fairway I have my doubts. Caution for land mines

Hot Mess

Course is under a lot of repairs and the pace of play was super slowwwwww. Like ridiculous and I only played 9 because the slow groups made the turn and I am not down to play 7 hour rounds. Course marshals just ride around not saying a word to people in the fairway hitting 2 and 3 balls. I won’t be back any time soon that is for sure

Massive On-course Repairs

The course is under massive repairs and update that effect current play. The price reflects this situation so, no big problem. The holes that are updated are excellent. So, go into a round knowing the situation and thank the staff for their hard work.

Fun to play, but upkeep was poor

For the most part, this is a fun course to play. That said, the upkeep this time around left a lot to be desired. Some of the fairways are absolutely destroyed with sand/seed essentially making up the majority of the space. The rough is extremely long. The other part was the pace of play. Both times I've played, 18 holes has taken almost five hours. I'm not sure if it's because of start times or what, but it is brutal. That said, the staff and marshalls were very friendly.

Wait till next year

Could be a fun course. But it’s all torn up and fairways are full of sand. I will wait till next year before I play it again.
Also had a very slow group in front of us. Marshalls didn’t speed them up or let us play through.

Terrible fairways

All I can say is MOW you can;t even see the fairways because of the high grass.Fairway # 9 closed and fairway #8 you have to walk it. I used to love this course and I hope they can turn it around by next year.
