About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
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.

Course layout

The golf course has some challenging holes that make you really think about what club to use off the tee and in fairways or rough.

Not worth the money

Skipped 3 holes and still didn’t finish in 5 hours before it got dark. Waited 20 minutes to hit first tee shot. Called into clubhouse to ask if I could start on the back nine and was told there’s 250 people out here and pace of play is going to be slow. Got put behind 4 frat boys who were ramming their carts together, running around barefoot, yelling across the course and hitting multiple shots just because. Payed somewhere around 50.00 a person for this. Public golf is dead

Not worth it

Took more than 15 minutes before being able to tee off on the first hole. Called in to see if I could start on the back and they told me they had over 250 people on the course so there’s no point. Was stuck behind a group of teenagers using the golf carts as bumper cars, yelling across the course and one even shoeless. Tee time was before 5:00 and skipped 3 holes and still couldn’t finish it got too dark

2:45 to play nine holes….

Played in evening two weeks in a row (Thursday last week and Tuesday this week). Both times pace of play was horrible.

Course is fine. In good shape. But pace will keep me away from coming back any time soon. Ridiculous to take 2:45 to play 9.

Not worth the money!

The course was in rough shape, the rough was very long, everything needed mowed from the fairways to the rough to the greens. The greens were fast and true which I appreciate however some of the pin placements were absolutely ridiculous. I thought the rule was that a pin placement whould atleast be a flag’s distance from the fringe, not the case on several greens. I will not likely pay $60 on a Friday to play18 holes at this track ever again, it was not worth it in my opinion.
