Buffalo Creek Golf Course
A public 18 hole Scottish links style golf course that was built on rolling hills and has many uneven lies, as well as water hazards on several holes. A driving range is also on site and rental clubs are available.
Unkept like they don't know how to water, fertilize, mow or run a nice golf course. Great if you like 5-6 hour rounds with no rangers or little care. They appear to care but after playing it's clear they don't know and don't care!
The course is okay, but the customer service stinks. It seems the employees must hate their jobs...maybe Manatee County is a crappy employer.
Good luck getting a tee time unless you literally drive to the course, which is in the middle of nowhere. My latest experience involved calling several times with no answer, then I finally got in to an automated system. I requested option '3' to make a tee time, but wouldn't you know it - NO ANSWER. So, I enter '0' for anyone, after several rings and no answer again, the system said "no one is available to take your call, disconnecting" and hung up on me.
I wouldn't recommend dealing with this course unless you've exhausted every, and I mean every alternative.
After reading several negative reviews about the staff I was pleasantly suprised how friendly and helpful they were, from reception to grounds crew. As for the course it was in good shape considering the very dry conditions. Bravo to Buffalo Creek staff !!!
The price and the layout of buffalo Creek GC are attractive. It's a county course located in Manatee county and it is challenging yet forgiving course! It's an excellent choice for an evening tee time to relax and drive the ball! You can play from the white or red tees and and not be frustrated or the blue tees and have to hit the ball a bit farther to get home in par! The price is right and wlakin is allowed! Try it out and i promise you'll be pleasantly surprised at the condition of the greens and the fairways!!! Mark Palmetto Fl.
Great staff and a very well maintained golf course. Hard to believe this is a county course. My friends and I played it once and now we go back every week. Best value for your money in the state. Everyone stay away! Ha Ha!
I've played this course dozens of times. Not because the people are nice- in fact, that's probably the worst part about BC. I play because it's usually in pretty good shape and the prices are dirt cheap!
The only trouble I have with BC is they seem to be having some financial troubles and I fear the county may have to do something drastic.
To remedy the problem, I say they should go out of their way to make you feel welcome- which they don't; pick you up in the parking lot, have towels in the carts, etc.
On the positive side, you won't find many course in FL that provide ice cold drinking fountains!!! That's worth a few extra points.
Overall, I like BC. It's close by, never crowded in the afternoon, and a nice course to take my boys to play and learn the game.
We played your course 4 years ago. I met my wife there 4 years ago and got married 1 1/2 years ago. Your course and staff are wonderful. Everyone was so curtious and careing, from the pro shop, rest and cart barn and of course the started. Your course was in wonderful shape and we are looking forward to playing again soon.
