No carts

Tee time for 1:57. Checked in at 1:30 no carts. The 1:31 tee time still had no cart plus all the other tee times before us. Waited until 2:05 still had no cart and times ahead still were waiting as well.
At this point with back up happening we had no chance to finish.

This is a regular occurrence at this course… I would say they just need to hire some staff but management has no idea how to run a golf course.

I am a Long time customer who plays at bent creek very often through the frustrations but I will not even attempt to do so anymore until the management staff get a grip on how to manage the course.

It was a very nice day

I took my brother in law out for a round at Bent Creek and had heard some pretty bad things about the course. They have made some vast improvements based on the comments I had heard. Thee course doesn't seem to drain too well as it hadn't rained recently and there were some very soggy areas. The greens were in very nice shape and the course as a whole was very playable.

Great round of golf with two heroes

My wife and I showed up to play golf and was paired up with to younger players. Both were Navy pilots from Jacksonville Naval Air Station. It turns out that they were from from the same squadron that I flew with during the Vietnam war and I clicked with them. The course was in great shape and it had a unique and demanding design. The staff was great and so was the weather. FLY NAVY

Good challenging course

Great value for the money with narrow fairways surrounded by lots of moguls ... challenging for the average golfer.
