Yesterday’s weather was spectacular.

He also donated a bowl that he made from a tree that was on the golf course. You can see pictures of the beautiful bowls on the Bent Tree NextDoor website. The quote above (the post title) is from the post on NextDoor. The Fall Fest is scheduled for Saturday, October 28.
There is a nice article about Bent Tree’s new General Manager in today’s Pickens County Progress. Pick up a copy of the newspaper to read the article.
The orb weaver spiders have been abundant this fall. This one was re-spinning its web after the web was damaged by the rain and wind.
The white squirrels have been out and about a lot the last couple of weeks.
The Golfer’s Getaway posted in August sold quickly.

The asking price is $172,500. Click here to link to the listing information.

The president of the Bent Tree Men’s Golf Association has a Letter to the Editor in this week’s Pickens County Progress regarding the group’s annual “NFL” golf tournament. In the past, each four person team represented a National Football League team and officially licensed NFL items were purchased for the participants. This year, many members were reluctant to participate in anything that was related to, or supported, the NFL. So, the tournament is now the “Not For Long” tournament and the team owners can name their teams after anything except NFL teams. To read the letter, see the current edition of the newspaper. The following is a quote from the Letter to the Editor: “Yes, thank God, they have the right to take a knee but we the fans also have a right to boycott their actions, privileged lifestyles and the game they play.”
