8100 Erie Rd
Palmetto, FL 34221-9415, United States

Buffalo Creek GC is a large, links-flavored Ron Garl design in northeast Manatee County on East 69th Street / Erie Road. The course is set in a natural environment with no adjoining houses.

Some time around 1997, the nines were reversed, but in November of 2011, the course owners reversed the nines again, so the course now plays in the original sequence.

After the relaunch, greens are in perfect shape! Par 4's are challenging while the 5's are all reachable. $ hours on Labor day weekend...not bad.

There are a few holes on this course that I really like (17: a challenging par 4 over water jumps to mind.) It's a fun course in that it begs you to use the driver on most holes. Pace of play was nice (Friday in April). A constant breeze made the 87-degree temps very comfy. Only complaint? Some of the greens were pretty beat. I love the staff there. They give my Dad (a member) a lot of grief, which was pretty funny.

A good local course if you can get a deal. Anything over $30 is not worth it, there are much better courses in the area for that price range. So far, the new management company is just raising prices and not adding value.
