BUFFALO RUN GOLF COURSE (303-289-1500)
Colorado Golf Course Review
Buffalo Run Golf Course in Commerce City north of Denver is a Keith Foster 18-hole championship design that is know to challenge skilled players while also being
accommodating to high handicappers and beginners. This links inspired layout presents spectacular mountain vistas along expansive fairways and lush rolling greens on a
course that plays to over 7400 yards.
In addition to featuring the championship course, the property is known for being a good host for outings and corporate events with a staff that pays attention to details and
provides a friendly social environment. Buffalo Run has hosted many prestigious events including the Denver Open, PGA Section Events, US Open Qualifier and Colorado Open
Qualifier. Year round clinics including adult and junior golf instructional programs, as well as individual and group lessons are also available.
On property is an elegant clubhouse with pro shop, Bison Bar & Grill (serving breakfast, lunch and dinner), changing rooms for men and women, and a tournament pavilion.
Practice facilities include a targeted grass range, short game area with sand bunker, plus putting green. The course has earned many awards including Travel & Leisure Top 100
Courses in America (2006) and Golf Digest's 6th Best New Affordable Course (upon opening) in 1997.
Five sets of tee boxes are fairly evenly interspersed to allow golfers of all skill levels to choose a set that fits their game. The tips play to 7411 yards/129 slope, while alternate sets
measure 7016 yards/124 slope, 6499 yards/119 slope, 6113 yards/116 slope for men and 135 for women, and 5227 yards with a slope of 120 for ladies hitting from the forward
tees. Pro Link GPS is standard on all carts and a 150 yard pole is also posted on all par fours and fives.
Water comes into play on the perimeters of 7 holes with no forced carries. 54 soft sand bunkers are located near the landing zones on the wide, mildly rolling fairways, or situated
greenside near the large undulating putting surfaces. Native high grasses frame most holes and the mounding and slopes often create a bowl effect, funneling slightly offline
shots towards the center of the playing surfaces.
Memorable holes include the par 3 fourth, with a cascading stream to the right side of the green, the beautiful par three 17th with a pond on left side, and the par five finishing hole
which features a narrow approach to a rock walled green complex. This property is recognized as one of the areas best, and is a local favorite. For more info, visit our page for the
