See the list of scheduled April golf events at the bottom of this post.
Yesterday, the bee in the photo above was buzzing around the viburnum carlesii shrubs that are on Hole 8. If you are playing golf in the next few days, stop and smell the blooms. According to White Flower Farm, “This is one of the most gloriously fragrant shrubs known to man.“

Today, over 6½ months after the launch of the new Bent Tree website, if anyone clicks on “Amenities” then “Golf”, to learn more about the Bent Tree Golf Course, they see a stock photo of a golf course that is not Bent Tree. From there, if they click on “Membership”, they see three more golf stock photos (see the screen captures below for clarification). There are more stock photos throughout the website. Note – the photo above is not a stock photo. It is not a professional photograph, but it is an actual photo of the beautiful Bent Tree Golf Course.

The Bent Tree Pro Shop sent out an email with the following upcoming events. Things have been hopping at the golf course lately. Call the Pro Shop at 770-893-2626 (or just stop in) for more information about any of the events. The proceeds from the Longest Day of Golf (June 21) go to the Bent Tree Foundation‘s Scholarship/Teacher Grant Fund. Since its inception, the fund has awarded college scholarships totaling over $109,000 and grants totaling over $47,000.
The traditional Bent Tree Ice Breaker golf tournament was canceled, due to freezing conditions. It was cold enough for a layer of ice to form over a good portion of Lake Tamarack. Click the photos below twice to zoom in, and you can easily see a line between the ice near the beach and the non-frozen section towards the dam. Yesterday, it was sunny and reached almost 50 degrees. A beautiful day in the neighborhood.
