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!
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.“
The weekend weather forecast looks great for golf in Bent Tree.

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.
