Had a beautiful round. Fairways and greens in great shape. Will definitely play again. Oh and we saw the alligator sunning himself.

Since coming under new management, Pope Golf, this course has taken a dramatic step forward. Better greens, better maintenance, helpful staff...all go towards producing a very enjoyable golfing experience. Well done. Excellent yearly total golf card program (golf/cart/practice balls) for a very good price.

You can grip it and rip here as it is wide open off the tee on most holes. Course conditions are not good and lack consistency. Greens aren't bad during snowbird season, but they suck any other time. Course has potential if the county would put more effort in it's maintenance. Over priced for a municipal course, with no deals for tax paying residents.

Greens were shag comparison to others.

Buffalo Creek is a reasonably challenging,relatively wide open, well maintained golf course. Employees are very nice and accomodating. Course is in pretty good shape. The greens are a little slower than others in the area...but there's plenty of grass on them (unlike some others). Very good value.

This is one of my favorite courses in the summer time.
As a florida resident who lives nearby, the summer rates are unbeatable. It's a no frills course, no fancy treatment here. But it is a great course. Open and Wide, this is a nice course to learn on and practice on.
Trying to make a buck the rates sky rocket in the winter. The rates are compareable to other high end courses that are much better for the same price in the winter. So my thoughts are... play in the summer, skip in the winter.

Links feel, but find a spot and land your ball. Biggest aligator "The Ranger" I ever seen!

Nice course, nice value. The people are very friendly.

Swing away on this course. It is long and wide open. Not much trouble as many of the fairways ajoin each other. Some of the cups on the greens were not cut well, but it is not a high end course. Allowed to walk if you like the exercise. Great value. Saw a lot of gators in the ponds.

First Impressions!

The length of the wide open & rolling links-style fairways as well as the challenging approaches to the greens are so striking that you may forget that you have to carefully manage the course. If you don't, it will swallow up all of your wayward shots! It's a very good challenge to your use of fairway woods & irons. Players familiar with the course will move quickly, so enjoy yourself at pace!
