Rated 4 out of 5 by wags5257 Booking a tee time obviously doesn't matter
Booked a tee time, was there extra early, and then they let a couple that just showed up go off in front of us, which pushed our tee time back, and the couple slowed down our foursome, to the point we had to wait on every shot, which backed up everyone behind us. Not a fan of letting walk ups just go off at any time. The worst part was it was a Tuesday, not even a weekend round. The tee boxes were in terrible shape, few bunkers with standing water(to be expected after the storm that went thru Monday afternoon), greens were very soft, fairways were good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jprince30 Disappointment
Bent Tree has always been a highly rated course for years in central Ohio. I hadn't played in 8-10 years until yesterday. I'm okay with the rather dry conditions to conserve water which I think is an aim of the course management. That unfortunately comes at the expense of horribly maintained tees which were overly dry and badly chewed up. A nice layout but it's lost its allure. Staff was great and accommodating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by matside 4 groups on tee box, left at after 13 hole
5 hours and only made it to 14, only saw cart girl once in 5 hours. Staff did not offer free 9 to come back, kid was no help. 4 and 5 groups deep on some holes. Saw ranger once after 4 hours and he could do nothing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by u921557007 Confused by the good reviews
I know experience varies a lot based on time of year and luck, but this course is very average to mediocre in all respects. Greens were ball marked up the worst of any course I've played this year (8 courses so far). Very sad. Parts of the course were burnt out despite a vey wet season. Ponds were stagnant and breeding Mosquitos. All Desperately in need of a fountain, pump, or other airation device.
The most irritating aspect was pace of play. I was paired with 3 gentlemen and the first nine, (back nine) went smoothly. We waited breifly on the par threes. Common. The second nine however got strangely slow. First two holes not bad, then slowed to a crawl. Waiting significantly on every shot. To the point of getting out the phone and checking email and sending texts, and practicing pitch shots in the rough. They must have slid some people out a couple groups in front of us to have this dramatic a slow down. Too far for me to drive, too irritating a day, and too expensive for me to go back. A one time play unless someone I know wants to play it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by robertmpoli One great course
This is the third time we've played here and it's been in great shape every time. We get to this area every once in a while, but we'll be sure to play again. Course was slightly wet due to the weather and not much roll. The greens were in great shape and on the fast side. You will definitely have to place tee ball as there are many fairway bunkers. A good challenging course.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patrick7330495 Great course at a great rate
It never ceases to amaze me at the overall condition of Bent Tree Golf Club. This has been a tough season weather-wise for the Columbus area, but The New Era courses (Bent Tree) continue to perform at a high level. The course is a great layout, spotted with fairway and green side bunkers protecting the true rolling greens.
Great track and an extremely fair rate!

Rated 4 out of 5 by wosmeyer Still a good course.
I hadn't played here for over 20 years, but it's still a challenge. The course was in good condition, despite the wet season, and the staff were all friendly. I'm glad I came back, and wouldn't hesitate to play here again.
