Style Links

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 layout

Enjoyed our round. Winter conditions so greens and rough a bit shaggy. Every hole unique, challenging but fair!

Great condition for winter golf

Color was turning brown but fairways were still plush and consistent. Greens are a bit hard but that’s to be expected this time of year. Lots of tee boxes so you can choose the right challenge. Value was great!

Disappointed

Don’t seem to understand why they sell tee times for 18 holes after 1:00.... especially when they are letting groups of 4+ walk 18 holes in front of you. Extremely poorly operated, we teed off at 1:15 and over 4 hours later when it was dark we were on hole 13....kind of a scum bag move to sell a tee time at an 18 hole price and barely get to finish the front 9.

Buffalo Run Has Improved!

7-8 years ago, Buffalo Run was in bad shape during the winter. They did not seem to have enough money to maintain the course in good condition. Now, the course is in much better shape. Had it not been for the thoughtless and slow player in front of us, a guy who insisted he should play with a friend as a twosome, despite many players behind him who hoped to finish before dark, it would have been a great day. The slow player bragged he was a scratch golfer and would rather play without allowing strangers behind him to join his group. He managed to delay play until it was past sunset. Fortunately, I can see in the dark!

Beautiful day to play golf

We had a late tee time so we didn't except to play a full 18; however, due to "cart path only" and a number of slow groups ahead of us, we only got in 12 holes before dark. In spite of this, it was an enjoyable day with perfect weather. The course is in good shape and very playable.

First Time Playing

Two groups in front of us that played extremely slow and the Marshall did nothing to speed them up....3 hrs to get through the front 9.

Back 9 is pretty much a construction site. In an undeveloped subdivision. If the wind is bad, there’s nothing to stop you from eating dust for the next few hrs.

It could be a pretty cool course in a few yrs when the construction is done.

Conditions

I played the course in mid summer and conditions were fine. My round on 10/5 was awful. The course was dried out and it was cart path only. The greens were the only good thing about the round. The construction is still heavy around the course. I won’t play this course until next year

Dry, crusty, construction zone golf

Very poor conditions. Dry and dusty from the construction in the area. It's cart path only but they still charge full price for it. Won't be returning this year.

Cart path only for what?

Course was in average shape but not sure why they had us play cart path only. Was dry enough to drive cart on and Marshall did poor job getting everybody to play fast enough. Round took 5 1/2 hours. Was happy the rough wasn’t as tough as mid summer when it played like winged foot
