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.

course review

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

Bent Creek

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!

Tee times

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.

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.

Ranger needed

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.

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.

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.

Nice day

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.
