Length 6642 yards
Slope 126
Rating 71.9

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.

Very nice course with elevation changes and really well maintained along with a friendly staff. A few Tees were under repair, but they were actively repairing them. Would highly recommend!!

Needs work

I had considered Bent Tree a premier public golf course until today. The course is in need of maintenance. Virtually every green had dead spots. There were dried grass clippings all over the course. The tee boxes had a lot of wear. I like the design of the course, you need to use all of you clubs and sometimes you must lay up to avoid a hazard. A little TLC and hard work can make this a premier course again.

Course has gotten bad

We play this course several times a year and this is the worst shape it’s been in. Back tees not mowed, major dirt areas on majority of greens and weeds growing in fairways. Definitely not worth $62 and a shame they have let it get like this.

The course is not in very good condition. Some of of the tee boxes are beat to death. Greens and fairways are sub par compared to the way this course has been in the past.
