Very nice course.

Very nice course layout. Very good bag service, they bring the cart right to your car. tee time right on time and pace of play was OK. Being Thanksgiving week you can't figure on a faster pace. Course was in decent shape.

Good Value for Your Money
Feb 2021
Booked with an on line service and impressed with the beautiful pro shop and surroundings. The putting green was smooth and fun to putt on in the morning. The course was a challenge with very nice greens but the fairways and tees need a little work. Had fun with a few golfers from the Northeast and finished in 3 and a half hours. With great weather and enjoyable partners, the day was much appreciated. Also, reasonably priced.

Bent out of shape
Jan 2021
Starting with booking a tee time,this course is a disaster.When you go to the Bent Tree website they give you a number to call to book. After prepaying for a tee time, you find out later that the telephone call redirected you ( without any notification) to Golf Now-so you wind up unknowingly doing a credit card transaction with a different business. The next day I had to change my tee time but when I tried to call the Golfnow number, the message said that I had to change tee times online. I did'nt have internet access at this time and that is why I had to call the telephone number in the first place.At the couse the frustration continued : there were no water cups,the bartender informed me that the bar and restaurant were closing permanently that day,the restrms had caution signs and the fairways were terrible.

Real Value

With the complimentary meal and beverage, a challenging course, well cared for fairways---as best you can expect this time of year it is a bargain. We played three times this visit. Always played with nice folks

The course is great and the rates were excellent in April 2019. Lots of room on the fairways. Fun to play.

Nice Course, Slow Play
Jan 2020
The course is a decent course with houses along many of the fairways at a nice spacing. The tee boxes were not real level, the fairways were in pretty good shape and the greens rolled well. The clubhouse was nice and the course personnel were all very helpful. All in all, our group found it to be a good value for the money. Probably the biggest weakness for us was their practice facilities.

Course in terrible condition - should have been closed
Dec 2019
I went to play at this course today. I had a GolfNow booking but because the course had standing water from all the heavy rain, we asked if we could have a rain check. The answer was “No” because the booking was not directly with the club. I tried calling GolfNow to be told there was a 6hour wait time for a representative to speak to me! After 2 hours we decided to try and play but the course was waterlogged and should NEVER have been open for play. The attitude of the Manager was AWFUL - a very poor reflection of the Club. I was very disappointed by the attitude of the representatives of this club and shall definitely never play there again, as I have no faith in the company. There attitude is that the “Customer is NOT right - only the golf club staff!!

Breakfast, Golf, Lunch
Sep 2019
What a concept. This Golf course gives you a full breakfast, 18holes of challenging golf on a mature course and a lunch with two beverages. Friendly employees make for an enjoyable round of golf. Keep it up.

Not returning

I had read many negative reviews but decided to go back after two years and see if the reviews were warranted. Unfortunately the negative reviews are justified.

The fee was reasonable and yes they add $3 for service charge on the tab. The downhill slide started at the food area. No milk or cream for the coffee; Creamora powder. Yuck. The scrambled eggs were dried out and tasted like powered eggs. On the plus side the bacon, sausage patties and sausage links looked fine. The fact that the lunch buffet was sitting out st 8:30 AM bothered me.

he cart paths are horrific; tee boxes and greens are poor.

Played 9 and due to lightning and rain came in. Went to the bar and asked for a Stella and was told that it would cost me $ 5.00. I said you advertise that a drink was included. “Well yes but not that one; inventory control” I could have any of the other beers on tap. I paid the $5 because I wanted that. I looked at the buffet which had not moved an inch in 4 hours. Chicken, Egg, Tuna, Macaroni salads. Cold cuts that didn’t look very fresh and assorted accoutrements. I chose potato chips.

Sorry but I play a lot of courses that give you a far better experience for similar money.

Continues to deteriorate
Apr 2019 • Couples
Great course gradually deteriorating. Poor tee boxes (especially no 14 ), sand traps not maintained, no starter, if booked on GolfNow they add charges for gratuities, lunch is minimalistic, not helpful staff(left an item in the golf cart). Greens are reasonable but fairways untidy with leaves and branches etc.
If you want a bare minimum golf experience at a lower price, this is the place
