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.

Bent Creek GC
Always a joy to play Bent Creek! The course was in good shape for this time of year and they have clearly done some work on the tee boxes since I played there in July. Greens were a little slow in spots but were overall in good shape. Good times were had by all!
Water is closer than you think
The greens on the front were slow and bumpy but much better on the back. Allot of loose sod in the wet areas. Friendly staff and enjoyable pace of play!
Bent Creek - Jacksonville
This was an excellent experience the course was in very good shape. The greens were a little sketchy they had recently been aerated but were growing in nicely. The tee boxes and fairways were in excellent condition.
I have not played in a while and found the course challenging but not exasperating. The starter paired me with a local who guided me around the course.
We had a really great time.
The nicest thing - they give you a yardage book that was very helpful. This course is a very good value and a hidden gem here in Jax.
Great All Around
Great layout, customer service and course. Exceptional value, and pace of play was good. Greens were a little slow, but for time of year we thought it was great.
Great day of golf!
Our first time playing this course and it was a terrific find. The course layout is excellent - enough challenging holes to keep us sharp and some straightforward holes. All holes were very interesting with water and hazards in play. The course was in good shape. The back nine greens ran truer than the front which seemed to be recovering from aeration.
Would play again!
Great layout. Greens had been aerated a few weeks ago so they were somewhat inconsistent but playable. could have used more sand and rolled again.
First round at Bent Creek
We had a wonderful experience at Bent Creek. Great practice area, good course and friendly staff.
Very good public course
Have been staying in Jacksonville for some time. On business. Have played several courses and this is the first one I want to play more often. Unfortunately we played during a play day. So a lot of first time golfers slowed play considerably but even with that we had a great day. You definitely have to play here if you are able.
The greens and fairways where in great shape. Hard scape and cart paths are showing their age. Bumpy ride in places. Play pace was great. Friendly place overall and a good golf value. The layout is fun with some good challenging 4s and 5s. I have played this course many times and always had a decent golf experience.
Stagger start times
Pace of play in the mornings at Bent Creek is ALWAYS so slow! Just a suggestion , for the first 2 hours let one group go off the front 9 and the next group go off the back 9....this would greatly increase the speed of play on the weekends.
The course itself is beautiful , maintained well and fun to play.
