Bent Tree is a great course!

The course is interesting and has some challenging holes. It was in very good shape and many of the greens, especially #18 rolled very true.
David in the pro shop was friendly and gave very good advice about buying lunch at the course!
Denise in the restaurant was warm, welcoming and a terrific host. She took pride in the food that she prepared and everything was delicious
We would highly recommend a visit to Ben Tree.

Still a solid value and course

Bent Tree may not be the prom queen anymore of local courses and thats ok. The course has a solid layout, great fairways, and solid greens. As may be expected there are a few tee boxes that are in need if some attention but, nothing that keeps you from a very enjoyable round. Great holes, friendly staff and solid food.

Course has potential, needs attention!!!

This isn’t a bad layout, but it’s a little bit of a cow pasture. Greens are very inconsistent and high short irons bounce off the green. Sand is incredibly inconsistent with ranges from dirt to soft sand to heavy sand. Good potential if they invest in the course.

Just an okay course but a good value.

Good value, greens fine, fairways okay. Tree lined and interesting. Bunkers, though, are horrible, so stay out of them! Breakfast, lunch or drinks included make this a great value if you aren’t looking for a pristine course.

Wake Me Up !!!

Slowest play of the year. Courses are packed and normally slow this time of year, but this was the worse. 5 hours. Foursome two in front of us were slowing everything down and no ranger out there to push them. Pathetic !! Luckily starter sent us out 20 min early or we would not have finished before it got dark.

Very Pleasant

Obviously, this course is a bit tired and underwatered, but, what neglect the fairways, the tee boxes and the rough suffer, the greens are second to none. Conditions are tolerable for the average golfer, and certainly good value for the money. There were two walkers in the foursome ahead of us, which may have slowed things a bit, but nothing too serious. Not sure if this is allowed in high season (it shouldn’t be), but we played April 3rd.
With the green fees come either or both breakfast and lunch from a buffet that is well put together and extremely well done. The staff from the pro shop to the cart folks and the food service are welcoming, friendly and attentive.
We were told that there would be a shotgun group of 32 people starting behind us. We were assured that they wouldn’t interfere with our game. They didn’t and it was very impressive that a staff member rode out to us as we completed the fourth hole to make sure we were finished before they started..

Good deal, fun day.

The golf now price was better than that offered by the course.. We had lunch included.

We played as a twosome in under 4 hours. The greens were very good. The course needs a little TLC. However, it is very fair and playable. We will definitely play there again.

Older course with interesting challenges.

Elevated and quick greens sloping back toward the fairway. Par 3 holes vary their challenges greatly. Do you like right angle dog legs? Learn to love them as position is everything. Overall a challenging but fair course well worth the playing.

Course going down

This course is really going down. Fairways are rough, very poor grass. Traps are not maintained very well nor are the tee boxes. One tee box was almost all dirt. Greens roll pretty good. They really need better maintenance.
