Buffalo Creek Golf Course reviews
We booked a tee time here specifically to see Chubby the alligator. He didn't show up! So disappointed. But, we had beautiful weather and the course was nice enough. We had a good time. more »
Nice course, it was wet but it is a challenging course. The greens we're in good shape. It was hot and sticky but we had a good time.
Had a great time! My family and I play a lot of Championship golf courses in Michigan, and this was a great course to play for the money. Hit a good shot and get good results, hit a bad one and it won't beat you up too bad. The wildlife was awesome, saw no less than 6 gators and the big one on 17 was at least 10-12ft long! Great play
