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.

I simply love this course. When I'm down here for business I try to make it a point to play the course because of how fun this course is to play. After my most recent round, I realized I played every club in my bag, and for a beginner that played from the regular tees (6000 yds) it's rare to find a course where I play maybe half of my bag. The cart's GPS system makes it easy to follow the course if you haven't played before, and if you're able to play in the middle of the day in the middle of the week you can fly through the course in three hours, like I did! I played after a rainfall, but the greens were still fast compared to other courses I've played in the region. Don't be discouraged on the front nine, because things widen up on the back.

This course is an experiance to play. It feels well spread out. Electronic scorekeeping on the carts is a plus. It plays at a medium difficulty ar thw rough is deep and water is on several holes.

Bent Creek is the perfect combination of challenging and fair in terms of play. I love all the elevation changes, and the variety of the layout. The par 5's are long, but reachable. The greens are just immaculate, and a nice mix of two-tier greens really challenges the golfer to hit a great approach shot.

Course was in excellent shape. Only negative, and this isn't necessarily courses fault, was bunkers were unplayable due to getting 12 inches of rain in one week. Fully confident the staff will have them back to shape in no time. Highly recommend this course to anyone!

This is one of the best and beautiful piece of property between st louis and memphis. The course is under redevelopment and im sure it takes time. People think you can pull things out of a box an go. Bunkers are rough but told they are going to get fixed. (Dont hit it in the bunker) New t boxes have been added. Makes it easier.

Look, I've lived in this area for most of my 32 years, and you can't beat Bent Creek in terms of greens fees, crowd, and course quality. I plan on purchasing a membership next year; it's that good. They always have hot deals on here with a cart included. Pay and play; you won't regret it.
