Bent Creek Golf Course
Since the opening of Bent Creek Golf Course in 1989, the 6,420-yard, par-71 course has provided a challenging golf experience for residents of Northeast Florida and visitors alike.
Crafted by renowned architect Bobby Weed with consulting services by Mark McCumber, Bent Creek's meandering terrain takes golfers through a certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, towering pines and alongside creeks and swales. The championship layout boasts Bermuda grass greens, plush fairways and a state-of-the-art lighted practice facility - home of the Bent Creek Golf Academy.
From the back tees, Bent Creek carries a rating of 71.6 and a slope of 136. The challenge starts with the first hole, which measures 538 yards from the gold tees, just 20 yards short of No. 15, the longest hole on the golf course.

Improve the greens
The greens had little shrubs growing on them. Other than that it’s a nice little course. Price is a bit high for what you get but it’s nothing that I wouldn’t do again.
The greens were extremely slow even on downhill rolls. Overall layout of the course is fine, but tough to score with such slow greens. Several of the fairway bunkers were missing rakes. The staff including the starter were friendly.
Thanks for playing and we really appreciate your feedback. Our maintenance team works extremely hard to keep up with green speed, specially when we are in active growing season. We will make sure to address the fairway bunkers ASAP.
Thank you again
Thanks for your fair rating Paul.
Please let us know if there is anything that we can do to improve your experience.
The team at Bent Creek is committed to continuously showing improvement.
Thank you again
This is the third time I have played Bent Creek and it's always a fun place to tee it up. The staff is very helpful. Tom was our started and rather than just telling me I was next in the tee and that I would be joining a twosome, he took the effort to introduce me by name to the other two gentlemen before we went to the tee. I thought that was a classy touch.
The course is in good shape. Greens were the best I’ve seen them. But the tee boxes were trash on a couple holes and were not very level on several occasions. Nothing like hitting driver with the ball above it below your feel thru no fault of your own. Other that that conditions were excellent.
For a round of golf for under $30, ya can’t beat the value!
Thank you for your comment Steven!
Our maintenance team is aware of some of the tee boxes and are working to grow them in as much as possible over the summer!
Thanks again for your business and we look forward to seeing you again!
Seem that tee times are non existent, people just jump to the first tee whenever they want. Water levels are low and so the swamp gasses are strong.
Thank you for your review and we apologize for people jumping in front of you on the first tee.
I would love to get some more information to make sure we don't let that happen again. Our GM Chris Cygan can be reached at 904-779-0800.
Thank you again for your business.
Thank you for your review! Glad you enjoyed your visit.
Course in better shape than the past
Course was in good shape.... Greens were a little on the slow side and the fairways need some work, but overall the our outing on the course was not bad.
The pace of play was good not crowded at all... we were able to beat the bad weather coming in and the starter allowed us to go out early.
We really appreciated your group playing our course.
The course has really started to green up after all this rain.
Hope to see you back soon.
This course has greatly improved!, but they need a ranger to keep pace of play. Today had walkers and that should never be on a Saturday morning start.
Thank you for your review!
He look forward to your next visit where we expect pace of play to be improved.
A nice 3 holes
Then it started to pour . The 3 holes we played were great, nice course and very friendly staff. Will definitely go back, worth the drive.
Sucks that you were rained out! Hope to see you back soon where you can get a full round in!
Thank you for your business!
Great course: rude mowers
Great course; please tell mowers to shut off mowers and move out the way when I’m about to hit the golf ball!!
Thank you for your feedback and we apologies for the mowers. We will make sure to touch base with out team to make sure we improve in the future.
Thank you again
Course is in great shape
This is a challenging course with some holes you can take advantage of. Greens are greatly improved after the repairs. Great value for the cost.
Thank you for your positive comments!
Glad you enjoyed yourself and hope to see you back soon.
Nice conditions ... many of the holes were challenging having to hit over a long section of rough to reach fairway or greeen
We are glad you had a fun time and can't wait to see you next time!
Thank you for your business!
Course was in decent shape with very playable greens. Better grass on greens than Eagle Harbor and Eagle Landing.
Well done to course maintenance.
Thank you for the kind words! Our maintenance team works very hard and we appreciate your business.
Fairways to green
Excellent fairways and greens. The golf course is outstanding.
Awesome! Glad you had a great time. Come back and visit us anytime you want.
Still under repair.
Great challenging course. Greens are still under repair. Tee boxes need more grass, especially the par 3 tee boxes. Ranger needs to enforce pace of play! Some guy was jumping around from hole to hole hitting more than one ball and holding people up.
Thank you for your review. We value your feedback and are sorry you had a poor experience. Our greens have recently been renovated and they are now in great shape. We'd love to host you again and show you the true bent creek.
I play at Bent Creek maybe 2 times a year when I'm visiting relatives in Jacksonville. I've never had a bad experience there. The staff is friendly as well as the people I've been teamed up with. Some greens were a little beat up but for the most part playable. I like because it's close to where I'm staying and fairly easy to get a tee time.
Thanks for your review. We are so glad our staff meets your expectations! We value your feedback and hope to see you back soon.
Course was in decent shape except the greens were being worked on and took a few two putts. Field distances weren't up so unless you have the course book or digital watch (which we did, could be a bit tricky). Fairways were decent and tee boxes were fine. I like the variety of holes on this course.
Thank you for your review. We value your feedback and hope to see you again.
