People who regularly played NE Florida courses in the early 90’s called Bent Creek a “hidden gem”. The 6600 par 71 requires accuracy from the serious golfer and a little more practice for average players. The low greens fees, plus the scenic yet challenging layout drew locals and visitors alike. Over time, Bent Creek needed new ideas, and to city leaders, that meant new management. Enter Billy Casper Golf.
The first order of business: Re-branding the course with a new name – from Golf Club of Jacksonville to Bent Creek – calling attention to the winding creek that is the trademark of the course.
