It was hit by the Greens Superintendent on Hole 4. Click here for a previous post showing him at work getting the back nine ready for play.
Here’s hoping the rain stays away long enough to get in the Ice Breaker tournament today. It will definitely be much warmer than last year’s Ice Breaker.
Bent Tree’s annual Ice Breaker golf tournament is scheduled for next Saturday (January 11, 2020). The format is a fun two-person team scramble, with each player limited to only three clubs (no sharing). There are men’s and ladies’ divisions, and the start time is 10:00 a.m. Call or stop in at the Golf Pro Shop for more information.

I was looking through some old photos yesterday and came across this one from five years ago. That was a lot of turkeys passing through the fairway on Hole 5!
Back in 1971, there was an article in The Atlanta Constitution about Bent Tree’s golf course, which was under construction at the time. The article mentioned the “forest-framed fairways”; that is still a perfect descriptor today.
Call the Golf Pro Shop (770-893-2626) by noon today to sign up for the Friday Couples Scramble. The cost for the 9 Hole Scramble is $5 per player (in addition to any applicable greens fees and/or cart fees). This Bent Tree tradition is just plain good fun for all golfers, from scratch players to high handicappers. The more, the merrier!
The Bent Tree MGA Member-Member tournament is scheduled for today and the weather forecast is absolutely perfect. Yesterday was really nice, but the wind gusts were crazy!
