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.

I was playing with my son and grandson in the weekend and wanted to have a great time but the ranger must have been in a bad mood. He kept bothering us for almost two holes to hurry up and I could see that no one was in the front or behind us.

Fun course

Playing from the senior tees is almost the correct length for my game. The course plays fair with no tricked out holes. The pace of play was good, the course conditions were surprisingly good considering the excessive amount of rain before. The clubhouse staff are terrific and accommodating.

Old fashioned course built for long hitters

Played only first 9 holes as weather did not cooperate.

First few holes are difficult, as is number 5.

Course eases a bit after no 5. Must be good with with fairway clubs and putter.

Good course for using various clubs.

Hi - I enjoyed your course and plan to be back. 2 things that kept it from 5 stars - 1) no food or water available on the course, only in clubhouse. 2) layout is outdated, fairway bunkers are easily carried off the tee and don’t come into play. Too many non strategic trees.

Go and play this course!

Well maintained. Greens very receptive and well kept. Bunkers were really well taken care of (plenty of sand, fluffy, lips and edges well done), and the patrons actually rake and leave rakes in the correct place! Rarely seen in a community course! 2nd time playing this course and will definitely come back fo another go!
