Fun course

We enjoy this course. Always friendly. Course was in good shape, apart from drop zone operating on one of the par 3’s. Had a slow group in front of us - they finally let us through.
Started on the 10th, I presume because of the heavy rain the day before. Got a cheap rate on Golfnow. Excellent value

Best Condition In Years

Bent Tree is our “home” course. The last time we were here, it was obvious some money was being put into the course. The fairways, rough and greens were outstanding. It would have gotten 5 stars, but a lot of the cart paths were awful. We’ll worth the very reasonable green fees.

Needs a little more TLC

Wide open course with a decent layout. The price was well worth it and there was no waiting probably due to how hot FL is in the summer. Tee boxes could use a bit of love as well as some of the fairways but for the price who can really complain. Had a great time and would definitely go back. Course has a lot of potential to be a very nice course if it had the backing.

Great Value

Bent Tree never disappoints, greens and fairways are in good shape. But the bunkers aren't that great bc of all the rain.

Good value

Overall Bent Tree is a nice course to play. Wider fairways than many area courses make it less punishing if you aren’t a low handicap player. Greens and fairways are in good condition however the greens were recently punched so you may wish to wait a week or two for best roll. Many of the tee boxes were pretty bare but they are flat. Our 10:04 tee time was a good value compared to many other deals that only had afternoon start times.
