Pricey for course condition

Paid ~$59, but could have got it for $29 if we booked this morning.

I was disappointed. I played Bent Tree in the spring of 21 and it was much better. Course is not being maintained. Greens were not good, fairways were just okay.

This course is in very good condition!

The greens are in great shape! The fairways are very good. The layout is not too challenging but the course offers many tee distances for all levels. My first time playing and I will definitely be back.

Improved

Traps look as good as I have seen them in quite some time. They have used weed eaters where needed and appearance is vastly improved. If they address the parking lot overgrowth you won't know the place. Greens are true.

Good day

Recently moved to Sarasota and finally got a chance to play. Heard about Bent Tree from someone at a driving range. Thought I would check it out. $31 at 10:12 on a Saturday? Must not be a very good course. I was pleasantly surprised. I didn’t play well but it was not the fault of the course haha. I will definitely play here again.
