This is a well kept public course. The course has several interesting holes otherwise it is the typical Florida course. The staff are very pleasant and accommodating. You'll enjoy a day of golf at Bent Tree.

Course is in good shape and has an interesting layout. You just have to get past a crabby starter who hates people.

Myself and my wife played Bent Tree on Sunday November 30th. The course was in very good condition. There was however one big negative playing there in as much as there was a 6 ball playing two groups ahead of us and that really slowed down the second 9 holes, to the point were we were stood around waiting longer...

This private course has opened up to non members on a restricted basis. The course is old style, with narrow tree lined fairways, smaller well positioned greens and strategic sand traps.

Nice course, though you can tell it was a better course, and possibly a fine country club with tennis courts in its day. Now the tennis courts are overgrown with shrubs. I had asked about club rentals before booking on Golfnow - they said they had Callaways for $20/set. We did rent clubs - they were absolutely terrible, mixed bag... More

I am not a golfer, but I have eaten dinner frequently at the clubhouse. It has always been an enjoyable experience. The food and service are superb, and the view of the course is beautiful.
