Happy days are here again when it’s warm and sunny all day and one doesn’t have to go to work! I play golf with EWGA ~ Executive Women’s Golf Association, the Denver Chapter. Saturday was a play day at Buffalo Run, so not only did I take my golf clubs, but my camera as well. I know having someone shooting pictures while playing golf can be distracting, but these ladies didn’t seem to mind at all. In fact, they told me to grab my camera more than once when a lovely fox or heron was in view!
Buffalo Run is located in Commerce City, it is actually adjacent to the popular Reunion neighborhood off 112th and 120th. The course like most Colorado golf courses is positioned for fabulous views of the front range of the Rocky Mountains. Today was no exception. The mountain peaks were covered in fresh white snow, while down in the plains we played in 70 degree weather, perfect for shorts and a golf shirt!
The course plays very nicely. I like long drives with a broad area. Several times we found ourselves rummaging around in the rough looking for a lost ball. Luckily I didn’t lose any balls, so that must mean the course was easy! A couple of the Par 3’s required some precision work. Once I landed in a bunker, in the exact same spot as a previous golfer, who failed to rake! Bah humbug! May he eat nats!
All in all I would not hesitate to suggest playing at Buffalo Run. I love techie GPS in the cart and caught on to using it immediately. I wish the GPS would track the ball and choose my club, but guess that will have to be invented by someone soon.
Buffalo Run Golf Course opened in 1996 when there was hardly a home in site. Today the golf course is almost totally surrounded by homes in varying price ranges, multi-family dwellings to upscale luxury homes. Since the neighborhood is relatively new, it still has that nice “new” feeling.
Reunion is a planned community that offers a wide variety of housing and prices. Entry level homes can be found in the area for under $200,000 and luxury former Parade of Home models sell over one million on the Back NIne of Reunion.
The commercial side of the location is growing rapidly. Once residents had a long commute to grab a Starbucks or a burger, but not anymore. Now fast food and soon groceries will be within a few minutes away.
This area has an address of Commerce City. It’s convenience to both downtown Denver and Denver International Airport is a strong draw for homeowners wishing to be in a lovely new neighborhood, near a very nice golf course.
