Course Reviews

It's been a little behind the last several years but under new management things are getting better . Give it a shot you might like it!!

Big Bend Golf Course has been brought back to life !!
The course is Great shape some odds and ends still to be worked out but over all good course...

Played this course last week in a scramble. The course was still utilizing forward winter tees and the greens had recently been aerated. This is one of the cheaper courses for a round of 18 in the metro area. With that last point in mind you get what you pay for. Slow, worn out greens that do not heal well from aeration, tee boxes that are hard and spoty and very slow play. Course has some personality on the back nine where water comes into play, but it's not worth going out of your way to play. The driving range right outside of the golf course is owned by someone else and is a fantastic flat, grass range.

You get what you pay for

Not a bad course. Gets a lot of play so tees get pretty worn out by Fall. Interesting layout, every hole is different. No bunkers but, plenty of trees. Wouldn't travel over an hour to play it.

There's absolutely nothing to recommend this course. 1. Amenities consist of hot dogs. 2. Difficulty pertains to breathing the stench of burning trash from residents neighboring the course. 3. Maintenance results in brown fairways and divots galore. 4. Scenery consists of stray dogs roaming around. 5. Value is in realizing this is not a place where anyone would ever want to return. 6. Overall: abominable.

I've never liked this course and it's only gotten worse with age. As a taxpayer, I wish the county would close it and stop throwing good money after bad. Big Bend is a disgrace.

This is one nasty golf course.

good looking course!!!!!

Greens were a litte ruff from aeration, but overall I like this course.

I wish someone had warned me!

Never again!

This course is a rat hole. The county needs to put some money into it!

Sure, its not a course in Scottsdale or Augusta. But it does provide for some challenging situations. Very flat with typical dog legs. The spoiled and pampered will not like the clubhouse. Frat guys will have to network somewhere else.

Ugly and not much fun. Not a lot of choices in Charleston, WV area, though. Course is suprisingly difficult.

Extremely poor

The ameneties at this course consist of availability of beer. It's not that much fun, especially since there are no bunkers. It used to be properly maintained, but hasn't been for years. There's not much scenery, unless you like brown turf and the atmosphere is dreadful. Even for its cheap price, it represents a terrible value.
