Buffalo Grove Golf Club is an 18-hole municipal course that offers an enjoyable round for players of all skill levels. The gently rolling terrain is covered with mature trees and wetlands, all of which provide challenges on the course. In addition to the natural hazards, there are a few strategically placed bunkers lurking throughout. Accuracy will be helpful when maneuvering the tree-lined fairways but it's not a terribly punishing golf course. There are a few tricky spots, but overall it's a forgiving and player-friendly layout. It's ideal for beginners and also good for a quick and casual round for any skill level. The golf course's affordability is another appealing aspect of the course. Buffalo Grove G.C. also offers a practice facility with a 25-station driving range and pitching and chipping greens.

Nice Course

Nice course for the money. Good pace of play. Fairways not on top of each other, no issues with others groups. Spacious fairways allow for off center T shots.
Definitely enjoyed the round.

Driving Range Bad Experience

I was excited to play this course but got tainted by the rude action of the driving range guy. He was not happy my buddy and I were hitting in an open reserved stall. This was due to lack of open stalls but he didn’t care. He said he will refund my money if I don’t follow his rules. We left the driving range because we don’t want anything to do with his attitude. Guess what? He only refunded half of my money. Go figure…

Great Course

Favorite course I’ve played this year. Great condition. Got an awful storm and had to stop at the turn. When it cleared they let us finish and the course was still in great shape. Will definitely play again.

Great course, always slow

Love this course. Simple but fun, always in good shape, but man is it always slow. The best part about Covid golf was the fact that the tee times were 15 minutes apart now it’s back to shoehorning tee times in 8 or 9 minutes apart. People suck at golf. Generally I’m one of those people and we need some time to enjoy our round and let the people behind us enjoy too.

it’s hard to keep coming back to this place when the pace of play is mostly always brutal. Anyway would still recommend it’s just hard to get into a groove.

need GPS

this is the second time I played here. No range, which is not good. And no GPS in carts, which is sorely needed. Unless you play here ALL the time, there are plenty of blind shots and valleys that you don't see. This course will cost you some balls because almost half the holes you will have no idea what your second shot should be.

Great value for money

Staff very friendly, place of play ok, some players were slow and will not let you play through, though starters were trying their best, I will definitely play again and recommend anyone. Clubhouse was ok,but considering corona virus precautions, it was serving well,
