Congratulations to this year’s Bent Tree Men’s Club Champion. Cooper has earned a place in Bent Tree history by winning the championship flight (gross score from the blue tees) at the age of 13! Recognition is also due to the third place winner of the championship flight…Ron has now played in the championship for 40 consecutive years (and holds the Bent Tree record for the most championship wins).
Congratulations to the winner of the men’s 2020 Bent Tree Golf Club Championship this weekend. This was the 14th time he has won…amazing! I think 1984 was the first year he took home the trophy.
This hawk swooped down from a tree on Hole 9, trying to catch a squirrel. It came up empty-taloned.

At the mid-point of the year, data is pointing to a possible 20% increase in the number of junior golfers (ages 6-17) this year. Quoting from the article, “It makes sense, with golf celebrated as a safe and healthy outdoor activity for all ages as the coronavirus rages on. With many youth sports on hold or slowly coming back, and families seeking activities they can do together, especially as schools were out, golf has emerged as a terrific alternative.“
This shot was taken Sunday afternoon as we headed out to play nine holes. The course looks beautiful.
