Buffalo Creek Golf Course in Palmetto, Florida is a local favorite for golf in the Tampa Bay area. Ron Garl designed the course, which stretches to just over 7,000 yards, and can feel even longer thanks to generous fairways and subtle but tricky undulations in the greens. Garl, a Florida native, is known for his innovative routings and his philosophy of designing courses to "sit softly on the land." The layout's fairways are fairly flat but they are often accompanied by strategically placed mounds. The par-4 15th is arguably the course's toughest hole. This tricky hole has a small green complex that is protected in front with a bunker. Another challenging hole is the par-3 third, which is Buffalo Creek Golf Course's signature. A large lake on the left creates a steady breeze that you'll have to carry to reach the green, which is protected on both sides by bunkers.
