Temporary greens

Course is in very good condition except for the temporary greens, very small, rough, bumpy. Was told of this before round and I understand but it does really affect play. Maybe some temporary yardage markers would help as the greens are not a consistent distance from the greens under construction, some are 100 yds + shorter.

Greens Under Construction

Golf Now seems to have neglected to mention when booking Bent Creek GC that all 18 greens are under major construction. Temporary greens are the end of the fairway with a flag stick and two concentric painted circles around the flag. The tee boxes have been moved back to make up for part of the hole distance. The par 3’s are a short pitching wedge away. Forget any meaningful putting.
Had we known the conditions it certainly would not have been our choice to play the Holiday weekend.

Temp Greens Until September 2021

Should be a disclaimer that the greens are under construction... Club is utilizing temporary greens placed about 20 yards in front of actual greens. Great time to take someone learning out. Not much traffic. Nice course for the money normally. Have to plan shots well. Not a long course. Friendly staff.

Temp greens

All greens are temporary which I did not see noted on Golfnow! Temp greens were small and average condition at best. Still enjoyed our round and overall course was good. Pace of play excellent. Only waited a minute or 2 on a couple holes... great day to play

Bent Creek review

Terrible, paid $43 to play, Course had church group shotgun tournament delaying our 10:32 tee time to 11:25. Pace was extremely slow, greens were literally dead and painted green. Putting on the greens was like putting on an airport tarmac. Pace was so slow and after 5 1/2 hours we had to leave after 14 holes to get one of our players to the airport so he didn't miss his flight.
Wouldn't play here again if it was free.

Are you Kidding

Greens have no grass but full price. Played 4 holes in one hour. Worst golf course I have played in 20 years. Don’t waste your money.

We apologize that your expectations were not met. We sprayed out our greens a few weeks ago in preparation for our Green Renovation which will begin on Monday! Its a very exciting project and we look forward to having the Best greens in Jacksonville!

Bent Creek

Overall course layout is good with challenging holes. Tee boxes need work and greens are lightning quick. You cant attempt to hit the green on an apptoach shot as they are so hard they repel the ball onto fringes. If you try to do a bump/run to get on the green, fringes are soft/gmarly and stop/ deflect the ball. Pretty impossible situation. A member we were pkaying with advised all greens would be temporary next week for next 4 months as the course rebuilds all the holes. So wait until fall to try this course.

Wait until next year.

Course is about to undergo green replacement. Greens are bad.
Course is dry and hard.
Pace of play terrible. 5 hour round in middle of day. Beginning players with no course etiquette holding up entire course and no rangers to be found.
Least enjoyable round in a long time.
I’d wait until new greens are established before considering this course.

Nice Day for Golf

The day started out a little chilly, but got nicer as the day rolled into the afternoon. Course was in great condition & the green look & played great. Greens were very fast with little breaking, were very green & looked great. We started at 0945 and the golfers in front played a t a good pace & no one was behind us. This is the third time I've played this course & have enjoyed it every time.
