Michael DL This is a beautiful mountain golf course. Challenging as almost any golf course will be. Cart paths need to be redone, but overall a great course for any golfer. October 12, 2014
Very challenging course Played course two years ago and conditions have deteriorated. In particular, the greens look like they have been attacked by some kind of fungus(?) and are patchy and not in good condition. I know they have been aerated but that is not the problem. We heard there is a different management company than the ones that were in charge two years ago. Present management seems over zealous in using cart path only and that made 5+ hour rounds for our foursome on carts. October 10, 2014
Challenging Fun course to play. It can be challenging if you are not familiar with the course. There are some holes on the back nine that have blind shots on lay ups. Would go back and play again. October 10, 2014
Great Course In The Mountains We have played at Bent Creek several times, but lately I have noticed some big changes. The staff all the way down to the food. The course was getting pretty beat up in spring, but through the summer I have seen a dramatic change in the conditions. Greens were a little rough, but the pro shop guy explained they had a new greens keeper and he is working very hard on getting them back to great shape. When we arrived at the pro shop, we were greeted with a smile and some light jokes from a big guy (No name badge) working in there. VERY FRIENDLY! He said good morning and welcomed us to the golf course. Rang us up, told us where to go (not knowing we played here quite often) to get carts. My husband forgot his PW and (call him big guy) pro shop attendant let him use his personal PW. Very thoughtful. Cart attendant got us loaded and we went on the play 18 holes. Creekside clerk greeted us and we ate a couple of over-priced but wonderful hot dogs. Gnats were the only complaint, but.....HELLO, WE ARE IN THE MOUNTAINS! What do you expect. Several people have complained about Gnats, but think about it......Mtns....Camping....bug spray. Use your common sense people, stop leaving that at home while on vacation! October 10, 2014
Greens need work I'm from West Tn and the greens there are primarily Bermuda and in perfect condition. This course has a very bad layout but for the money I suppose it was worth it. The greens were not cut well, slow, and burnout. Has really good view if you care more about that than play. But as I scratch golfer i would prefer to play somewhere else. October 5, 2014
greens since my last review the greens have improved immensely.the greens fairways and rough looked great. this course is a joy to play this time of year. October 3, 2014
condition nice course love the layout. flat in the front target golf on the back nine. course has a few issues with greens but overall good condition. September 30, 2014
Challenging back 9 This course is great! The front 9 are just a simple warm up for the back 9. Had a huge all beef hot dog at the half in the screened porch grill they have. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Left my wedge on a green and Dave McCowan, (management?) called to let me know he had it and would hold it until I could get back. I really appreciate that. Will be there this week to play again. Can't wait! September 29, 2014
