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 has been a premier public course in this area for years. They have a few greens that are experiencing problems, but overall as good as usual.

I’ve been playing this course for a 20+ years. While it has gone thru some changes - including management companies - it’s a course you can rely on for a good experience.

My only complaint is that their system doesn’t always sync with GolfNow. One time we came and the tee time was double booked. They got us out but it’s a little annoying. Today our time was confirmed with an email and when we arrived, our time had been pushed back one slot. It’s not the end of the world but this is the only course I’ve ever had “issues” with syncing to GolfNow.

This is a wonderful course that I play a lot. Please fix the teebox on the number 2 hole! I mention this every time I write a review. So when you going to fix it? I hate teeing off in dirt!

I do not usually land in traps, maybe one or two a round. This time si traps and while the sand is white and soft they were not raked out to start the day and there were a lot of foot prints and unraked areas. They really need to take care of the traps they now have which used to be horrible with no sand and hard panned. Otherwise, love the course. It is a shot maker course and makes you think.

Course is in good condition, lush fairways absorbing the daily (it seems!) rain. Greens have been recently punched but recovering nicely. Should be in very good to excellent condition by next week.

Nice staff, friendly and helpful. Great value at the snack bar.

Bent Creek is not a course for someone just starting to play golf. It is very challenging at times and can become extremely frustrating, however if you’re up to the challenge, it will definitely show you where your strengths and weaknesses in your game lie.

Normally, pace of play is good, even on Fridays. But, this round was crazy slow. There was a group of 5 playing together, topped by a group of 6 in front of us. In between the two groups were 2 somes and 3 somes. A person came out, but didn't break up the large groups. Club need to do a better job of consolidating groups into 4 somes.
