Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Missouri
Bent Creek, Jackson, MO
The staff “Owner” was very rude and definitely not customer friendly. Made remarks toward myself for using golf now and losing 30% revenue. Our tee time was at 10:30 and the two people that had 10:20 tee times were going to let us go first. However, the owner walked out and made the remarks above about golf now. So, needless to say I will probably not used this golf course again.
Hi Renner, yours was one of two Hot Deal twosomes booked at 10:30am on Saturday. We don't allow groups to jump ahead on the tee sheet regardless of arrival time, so you were given specific instructions not to tee off before the 10:20am group. You proceeded to the first tee regardless, so I came out to maintain order. I'm sorry to see this so clearly affected your enjoyment of the round, but I hope you can understand that I have to protect the interests of hundreds of other golfers and can't allow groups to tee off willy-nilly.
The course is ready
The fairways and greens are in great shape and ready to play. Putting was consistent and just challenging enough. Love this course.
Hi Ron, we're sorry to see your experience with us was less than ideal. If there's anything you think we could improve, please give us a call at (573) 243-6060. Thanks for coming out to Bent Creek, we hope you'll give us another chance soon!
Just keeps getting worse
Bunkers are rock and mud, the golf course in general is not taken care of, i know its early in the year, but every year it just keeps getting worse, used to be the best course around , its definitely not worth the money anymore .
We appreciate the honest review, we're sorry to hear your experience with us was less than ideal. We're working hard to ensure optimum playing conditions for all our guests. Thanks for coming out to Bent Creek, we hope you'll give us another chance soon!
Need to mark T-boxes
The cours wasn’t in too bad of shape, bunkers needed some work but it looked like they were working on them. Also, none of the boxes were marked and they didn’t tell us that they had changed the front9 to the back 9 and vise versa.
Course was ok
The course was ok but since the last time we played they have reversed the layout. We where not told this so we started the round on the back 9 instead of the front.
Greens and fairways are always in good shape, looks like they decided to eliminate a few sand bunkers. I think they are turning a corner
My favorite course
Still early in the season so grass had mo chance yet to grow
Sand bunkers are not good at all mo use to play out of them
Greens are in good shape and ball rolls very true
This once beautiful course has sadly deteriorated over the past few years. Friends have stopped playing there and I can see why. I even watched the groundskeeper (intentionally?) disrupt play mid-fairway. I'm very sad for this once great course and hope it can return to its former glory.
Facility Needs Work
On the plus side, the greens were in great shape, as well as the grass areas.
Downside...….cart paths (concrete) are breaking up, bulkheads on #12 are falling into the water, my cart's battery was dying after 11 holes...had to drive back to get another cart, traps were a mess.
Facililty has gone downhill since new owners took over a couple of years ago.
I Like Playing Here
Pros: Carts have GPS. Great layout. Not crowded.
Cons: Easy to lose ball in the rough. A little pricey. Sand traps could use a makeover.
All in all: If you’ve never played Bent Creek, it’s worth a try. You’ll pay around $40-45 during peak season but it’s still one of the better public courses in the area.
Amazing is not even the right word!
The course was amazing, the price was even better!!! Greatest place I've ever played golf!!!
Was wide open and I was solo, so able to get around in about 3 hours (playing multiple balls and a few fun holes over again). Had some water issues due to a recent storm (sand traps were water hazards and destroyed). Grass around the greens were in bad shape, but overall a great time. Playing again tomorrow morning!
Not the course that i started out playing golf on !
It had been a good 5-6 years since i had played this course and i was in awe of the conditions of the course that I once regarded as top notch. The attention to detail in regards to upkeep is pathetic from the range being closed and grown up, the sand traps grown up or not cared for, the busted up cart paths, and the tee boxes either closed or moved up to save on maintenance. It pains me to see the once premier players course in the area go to the bottom of my "to play" list. I was told that the course had changed owners and its evident from the conditions ! I wont be back ! What a waste of a great layout..
Course is not cared for
This course is not maintaining greens or around greens....staff/marshall was rude and not friendly at all...had bad experience especially for driving over hour too get there...dont waste your time or money
My favorite course in Southeast Missouri. The greens are phenomenal. I would highly recommend anyone to play here.
I have played here since it opened. Last time was 5 years ago so I went to the 1st tee which I found out later that they had switched to the back 9! Me and my wife Karen played the back 9 first. Except for the high fairways and rough the course was good. They had rain for 3 to 4 days and was mowing daily. Karen got her 1st hole in one on the 4th hole!!! The staff was exceptional. We will always remember this round. I would highly recommend this course. The range is closed on mon.so call ahead if you want to warm up.
course is very good, excellent place to play. Needs some maintenance in flower beds but has nothing to do with the course.
