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.

Hot Deal and I got paired with 2 local's who helped with course management. Course was in pretty good shape. Probably not as big a challenge for low handicapper but for my 12 handicap was challenging enough.

Even though this is a busy course (played on mid-morning on a Thursday), the pace of play was very good (about 4 hours). The course marshals were evident but not pushy at all. The greens rolled very well but were not extraordinarily fast. My friend and I were fortunate to get paired with a knowledgeable member, saving both strokes and ammo. The layout is very diverse with doglegs, water and sand in all the right (or wrong) places. I look forward to getting even with this course the next time I am in the area.

Poor greens were biggest problem. Fairways and tee boxes fairly good for this time of year. Course offers a lot of challenges from any tee.

Enjoy course generally.

Great course, but please get a ranger that will enforce the pace of play! Behind a foursome that would not let us play through and no one was in front of them! I shouldn’t have to skip a hole in my round of golf!

This was actually the second time my friend and i played the course.Was really surprised at how tricky the course is.Especially the first time you play it.And when the wind is 15 to 25mph it becomes a little more tricky.Seeing that there is water on most of the holes.Only complaint i jave is there is so much play on the course that i found while putting alot of pitch marks on the greens.Just wish players for one fix thete pitch marks and when they do properly fix them.But besides that i wil be back.

This course has been very well taken care of. Greens are actually green. Good layout. I'm fairly new at this, so I don't have alot to compare to. I do think they overbooked a little. We had alot if slow play due to the backup in front of us. Over all, we had a great day.
