Usually not very crowded.

Very relaxing and quiet golf course that is out by itself with nothing to disturb you.

Employees in Pro shop can be somewhat unfriendly and not accomadating to golfers on more than one occasion I have been there.

Looks like they could get a chainsaw and get some of the trees that came down from Irma out of the way.

Course was in pretty good shape with most rough cut way back.

Why on Earth would tee times be offered at 2:30 and 2:40 with a full tournament that started at 1:00 with a shotgun start? I had full grown men hitting tee shots from the ladies tees, which means they were hitting into us, celebrating by shot gunning beers. Worst experience on a golf course I've ever had.

Played Golf this weekend and had similar experience in that I had a 2.30 GolfNow tee time. Showed up a bit early but they had all kind of problems going off early. Did I mention there was no one hardly on the course. This place is mismanaged and unfriendly to their paying GolfNow customers who they apparently frown upon .Really makes me question why I drive way out there to play golf.

My younger sister played this course as a part of the high school golf team and my dad told me it was in much better shape then. There were a couple fairways on the back nine with some thatch. And the roughs hadn't been cut. Other than that everything was great. Course is great on the eyes a few challenging holes. Mostly short holes. Par 3's under 150 most 4's under 360

The Creek Golf Course at Hard Labor state park is a very good layout in a perfect setting and one of my favorite courses. While very playable, maintenance has not been in-line with the potential caliber of the course. The greens were once fantastic, but are now only ok. Grass mowing is inconsistent with some areas a few yards from the fairway knee high. Only the bunkers were above average. The Creek does not provide much in the way of service or play management.
