Bull Creek Golf and Country Club
Not Worth The Long Ride From Durham
The course was not maintained. Long grass in fairways and tees, sand in bunkers was shells, and the greens were poorly maintained as well. This course has no management, and needs a great deal of work. Will return to Brevofield in Wake Forest. Don't waste your time here, very wet course, and over grown.

All of the greens were brown.....burnt. fairways had not been cut in many days. Do not waste your time.

Be warned: it is horrible
Really hate to pile on to the woes of the ownership of this formerly good, fun, inexpensive course, but I wish someone had warned me off before we drove an hour to play it. We got there at 830 for a 9 tee time on a Sunday morning, only to find the parking lot empty, nobody on the range or first tee, and the clubhouse door locked. A few minutes later someone arrived to open up, we checked in, hit some range balls and were on our way. Found the first fairway to be "shaggy" at best, apparently not cut in a while. First green was just dead turf and dirt. It only got worse, "fairways" mostly weeds and clover and not mowed in a while. "Greens" were brown dead grass and dirt. Bunkers all had weeds growing up in them. No water in coolers. After 2 or 3 holes it was apparent that the course was near death. After we finished we spoke to a regular who was just going out, and he told us he thought it was in bankruptcy. Hate to see another local course follow Cheviot Hills and Wake Forest into history, so hoping someone buys and restores it. In the meanwhile, they should stop taking people's money without a disclaimer about the conditions.

Bull creek needs to go ahead and close its' doors, the course was in such bad overall shape that I lost 4 balls off tee shots. Course other than the greens still having some green parts was 2 on a scale of 1 to 10! Can't hardly get upset with $14, a player, but it pushed it pretty close for an area golfer like myself..

Good value for the money
We always enjoy playing at Bull Creek. The course was in decent shape for being this early in the season. Pace of play was good. Staff is always very friendly. The only complaint we had was the food and beverages in the clubhouse were well past their expiration dates.

Good course for the price
Pretty basic course, great value. Friendly staff, relaxed environment, nice greens, fairway was in rough shape but that's probably due to a lot of rain and snow the past few weeks. Really enjoyed myself!

I played Bull Creek for the first time on Sunday, February 2, 2014. It was a great experience for me and my two playing partners.
When I checked in at the clubhouse, I asked the pro to tell me a little bit about the course and he gave me a brief overview of several of the holes that a first-time player would need to know.
While the course was not in plush, pristine shape, it was in very good shape. The greens were very thin but they were consistent and ran true.
The course was very exciting in that there were equal number of par 5s, 4s, and 3s. Also, there were doglegs left and doglegs right, blind shots up hills and even over barns!
The course had great terrain and we saw a beautiful heron in the creek area around one of the part 3s.
All things considered, we had a great golf outing and we will definitely come back again!
