The course has a nice layout that offers a fair amount of challenge. The finishing hole is a bit of a let down but the rest of the course is pretty scenic. There are a couple of challenging holes with water in testy locations but they are fun to play. Fairways were decent but not great in terms of consistency.... More

I played 18 holes with two girlfriends last weekend at Bent Tree. Its a fairly nice course for the price. However, when we finished our round I needed to use the facilities. The one man left at 6:10PM informed me that everything was closed and I would have to the portable on the 2nd hole!!! I was totally chagrined and... More

Many golf clubs in Florida are having membership problems. This is another one. Never played here before but took golf lessons here. Well they did away with the range, as there are houses there now. There is only an area where you can chip. The course is just in average condition and the tee boxes are sub par. Hopefully it... More

Booked on GolfNow, VERY reasonably priced. Course is nothing special, but in good shape. Staff is extremely friendly. Had a good time. Got through 18 in around 3 hours.

As I approached the club house, my mind drifted back to the late 70's and early 80's. The L.P.G.A. had a tour event at "the Tree". Joanne Carner, Judy Rankin, and Jan Stevenson were on the range...and rookies like Barbra Mizrahie, Nancy Lopez and Eva Chang...we're getting the feel of the putting green. Media celebrities...and sport stars were all over... More

Great scenic holes at fantastic summer rates. Staff is super and golf facilities and restaurant serve good food at fair prices. Fairways are broad and greens fair for the average golfer. If it seems long....move up you shouldn't be on white tees. We will go again a fun course at a steal.

Very poor fairways. Some holes have more dirt than grass. Everything is under construction. If you have allergies the construction dust will really bother you. They have ruined a very nice course.

Two couples played on a weekday and teed off at noon. We are average to above average golfers. The whites were very challenging for this greybeard so I would play the Yellow Tees next time BUT I still enjoyed the round. The front nine is the "old" back nine with that extra challenging 9th hole. Lots of water and traps... More

We should have been told that the course was undergoing building work . They have ruined a lovely course , now they are jamming in a load of houses that make the course look like an inconvenience! Why not just build on the whole area and be done . May as well as the course is ruined now anyway .... More
