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.

Well managed

These folks did a great job managing tee times with a frost delay. Slow but pretty typical for a Saturday. My only problem is that there was no exception to the “cart path only” policy for disabled guests. I have serious knee issues so walking to my ball after each shot was very difficult.

Still In Bad Shape

It has been over a year since I played here. Was told the course was in good shape so I thought I would give it another try. Wish I didn't!

The fairways were chewed up and in desperate need of reseeding, etc. The rough was in even worse shape and the grass was very patchy making it really hard to hit the back of the ball because there was so much dirt mixed in with the grass. Imagine hitting every shot into a divot.

The greens were in good shape and rolled pretty well.

It is really a shame because the course layout is really good and it is one of the few links style courses in the area but it is not enjoyable to play on a course in this bad of shape.

great course, needs attention

interesting and excellent golf course that needs quite a bit of attention, in places the rough is in the same condition as the fairways, overall has not been watered or cared for enough. also,, more than once my ball took a very strange bounce due to uneven grass near the greens

Good course but needs some love

Great course layout but lots of dry dirt patches. With riverdale fairly close and always in great condition I would always lean there before going to Buffalo Run.

The course conditions were terrible

They clearly didn’t water enough over the summer. There are large areas in the middle of fairways with no grass.

Great Layout, turf challenges

This is a nice layout. The fairways are wide but there is no intermediate rough, goes straight to native grasses. The fairways were soft and spongy in some areas and dry and cracked in others. The sand was really deep in some bunkers and thin in others making good strikes a challenge. It's definitely a course I would recommend playing and the course conditions may be from all the housing going up around the course.

Course needs work

The course was not in great shape the day we played. The fairways need watering and the weeds are starting to push on to the edges.
