Wide Open

This is a fun course to play because it is wide open and mostly forgiving. I am able to score 4-6 strokes less per 9 holes than my home course of Baker National. Many holes are medium length and easily reachable in 2 strokes, allowing for a few birdie opportunities. The greens are fairly fast, but no real steep slopes. There is water on the course but it rarely comes into play if you play within your limits.

Fun course with moderate cjalenges

Love to play this course. It has excellent variety in length of holes and topography as well as challenges. I love the old barn as a club house. It adds a wonderful sight to this picturesque course.

Needs work

The course is fine to play with some fun quirky holes. There have been minor improvements made the past few years and the greens have gotten much better. Unfortunately the golf carts are very old and in need of repair badly. The cart paths also need work as they are crumbling and very bumpy. The head golf pro is not real friendly towards guests which I've witnessed and been a part of. This is not a private country club or even a high end public course - its a decent play to go have some fun with your buddies. I'm hoping things improve next summer.

Disappointed this round

This is a busy course which I play 2-3 times per year. On this day, the course was bone dry. The greens were rock hard and impossible to stop a ball on. The fareways were like hitting off concrete. Even the tee boxes were so hard you almost needed a hammer to put a tee in the ground. Additionally, there were mounds of cut grass on the fringes around the greens on many holes. Won't be back soon.

Rough Shape

No starter or Ranger anywhere to be found. Pace of play was over 4 1/2 hours. Course is too expensive for how bad of shape it is in. Tea boxes didn’t have grass on them.

Liked the course and the staff

Only criticism is that on hole four you could get killed. Twice after our drives a bit to the right have had foursome in back hit while we waited for green to clear. Whizzing sound is scary. Don't want to die on a golf course. Not sure how you fix it.

Needs work on experience

I have golfed Creeks Bend 4 or 5 times a year for years. I am sad to say the experience has not been good lately. Friday, no practice balls because they were not picked up from yesterday. At 12:30 brats and hot dogs were not ready yet. Cart paths and other areas filled with pot holes. Grass had not been cut for a couple of days. Pace of play was bad as there were twosomes, fivesomes, etc.
I don't expect perfection, but there were too many issues that seemed to be from lack of help.

Nice course, little water logged

The course was slightly water bogged on several holes.. They had recent flooding but nothing for several days so a testament to the lack of drainage.. Course is good for difficulty level as several holes prove to be a challenge for even decent golfers..
Cart girls Emily and Sydney were very helpful even when watching my teammates shank their shots in front of them..

Excellent value, good facilities

I play CreeksBend once or twice a year. It's always a pleasant experience with friendly staff and a fair layout. Part of the course can be subject to issues with water because of the nature of the layout. That is to be expected and worked around, not a negative. Overall, the course is well-maintained and a pleasant experience for the average, beginning or advanced golfer.

Great Course with a Friendly Staff

I had a great time at Creeksbend and will be coming back again. They have a great area to practice and nice target targets to aim at. A huge practice green.

Course was in great shape and I got paired up with two locals who gave me an overview of the course.

Disappointing Customer Service

I booked a tee time for 4, through Golf Now. I was charged approximately $23 to reserve the tee time. The cost of the round was $61.50 per player. One would naturally assume that the $23 I spent to reserve the slot would go towards my green fees. Nope. Guy in the clubhouse charges me $61.50. When I asked him why this was happening, he said he had no clue because he does not work for Golf Now. Ended up paying nearly $85 for a round of golf at Creeksbend. Called Golf Now customer service. They apologized & are sending me a dozen golf balls to make it right. I called Creeksbend to speak to the manager who couldn’t be bothered to return my call. I’ve played this course for years and bring friends to play there from outside the area. Not anymore. A little customer service goes a long way. That seems to be forgotten here.
