Large tree, fun course

This course was playable for any handicapper. There were several blind shots but those can add to your experience. The only drawbacks were dry tee boxes. The pace of play was a bit slow, but I was playing solo.

Poor grounds and poor hole layout on the back 9

There is one hole on the back nine with trees taking up most of the fair way and it leads to a funky shot into the green. Tee boxes need a hammer to put your tees in and you could watch you ball ball bounce 5 feet up in the air off the fairways. Other wise course was fine and staff was friendly

Good Times

Always a fine day of golf at this course. My personal favorite in the twin cities area. Not a friendlier staff anywhere. When you consider that the bulk of the help in the summer are college students , this is a tribute to the people managing them.

A miserable day to be outside. Heat index well over 100. But the staff made it enjoyable with their great attitudes and attentiveness. Cart came around often. Creeksbend also has the best golf course hot dogs in the twin cities.

Early Season conditions

I play this course several times a year. It is usually a good value if you are willing to drive a distance. I don't ever remember there being so much winter kill. The fairways were half dead and half green. Tee boxes were a mix as well. Some had red through blue tees all on one spot and they were well worn, tough to find grass. With no starter, it was confusing just when to tee off. That is getting to be normal anymore. It was nice to see green grass and get out for the first time this year.

Poor Planning

Arrived at the course to find no carts allowed because of wet conditions. Allegedly no pull carts available. Although the group in front of us and behind us had them provided. Felt like we we were treated poorly because we were golf now customers.

Creeks Bend, and Marsh Also

Creeks Bend Golf Course is set on what was formerly farmland with lots of marshy areas and a creek meandering through the property. The course isn’t long, 6,293 yards from the back tees. Three additional sets of tees range down to 4,866 yards. The routing of the front nine takes you up the side of a hill and then back down. The back nine starts out on gently rolling terrain, but then holes 14 through 17 are routed around a marshy area and are fairly flat. Fairways are generously wide and there is sparse tree cover throughout the course. We played on opening day of the 2019 season so the course was “walking only”. There were piles of snow throughout the course and many fairways were quite squishy, so it wouldn’t be appropriate to make any judgements about the quality of the greens, fairways, and rough. No doubt things would be quite different in normal conditions. A proper warmup is advised before heading to the first tee, because your round will start off with two of the three most difficult holes on the course. On the first hole, a 374 yard par 4, a creek runs along the left side of the fairway before angling across in front of the green. The green is set at an angle to the fairway, paralleling the creek and increasing the difficulty of the approach shot. A par here will be well-earned. The second hole is a 431 yard par 4, with the fairway sloping from right to left. The green is elevated above the fairway, making the hole play longer. After playing the front nine, those in our group were impressed by the variety of the hole layouts. This variety continued throughout the second nine as well. The 380 yard par 4 twelfth has a pond on the left about 220 yards from the tee, and additional water running crosswise will require a 250 yard carry to clear. A landing area short and right of the water will set up a long but safe approach shot. The 14th is a 474 yard par 5. There is a large landing area for the first shot, but tee balls that are longer than 260 yards or so will run out of the fairway and into the marsh, especially on the right. A straight shot to the green is discouraged by a stand of trees directly on the target line. A safer shot to the right of the trees will leave a wedge shot to the green and a chance at birdie. This was the first time at Creeks Bend for all in our foursome, but all agreed that a summer round at this course would be welcome.
