The lush, rolling terrain occupied by Bent Tree Golf Club was sculpted into one of the most popular championship golf courses in central Ohio. Dennis Griffiths, the course's architect, seamlessly blended the design with the natural features of the landscape. The abundant natural water hazards come into play on half the holes and Griffiths strategically incorporated several well placed bunkers. The terrain's gentle undulations provide some interesting slope in the greens that place a priority on accuracy. Bent Tree Golf Club's par-4 eighth hole is especially demanding. It may be short at only 334 yards but it is surrounded by bunkers on all sides. It is followed by another tricky par 4 that requires both distance and accuracy in order to navigate the tree-lined fairway uphill to an undulating green faced with bunkers to the front and back.

Played for the first time today and had a fantastic time. Everything was in great condition and the sand traps made some of the tees more challenging than most.

Bent Tree

Twilight round. I was a single behind a foursome & a threesome, but nobody was behind me. It was good since I could hit multiple shots & work on some things. Paid for 18, but could only get in 12 due to darkness., but I knew that going in so it was well worth it.

First time here and impressed

Greens and Fairways in terrific shape for mid November, sand traps in bad shape, but it’s November, so there’s a pass.

Always a great course

First time playing Bent Tree this year and only once last year, but I'm a former member who used to play Bent Tree at least once a week. Point is, Bent Tree has always been one of my favorite courses because it is always in good, if not great, shape. The layout is fair and defintely challenging, meaning if you keep your ball in the short grass you have a great opportunity to score. Plus, the greens are smooth , good condition, and fast enough to make putting challenging . Even with all of the rain today and this week, the course was in great condition.

Very Nice Course

Everybody was super nice! The course was immaculate with all the green around. Had a big rainstorm night before so the traps were 4.5 out of 5 but that wasn't an option! Great value nice layout!
