Course Description

Originally built in 1972, the Bent Tree Country Club par 72 layout was the design work of renowned golf course architect Desmond Muirhead. Utilizing his knowledge of designing courses in the flat terrain of Florida, Muirhead first carved out the many water features around the course and then used the excavated material to form the elevated tees and greens, and to mold the meandering fairways. Over the next few years, multiple species of new trees were added to help define the course flow and to add beauty to the revived cotton farm.

Then, thirty years later, in 2002, the Club’s Board of Directors empowered nationally known architect Keith Foster to rebuild and rework the original blueprint and upgrade Muirhead’s design into a more traditional and timeless layout. The result is a beautiful par 71 course that is highlighted by water features testing players on 14 of the 18 holes, 62 chiseled and brilliant white bunkers that define the driving zones and putting complexes, and exquisite Bentgrass putting surfaces, considered by many, especially our Club members, to be the finest in the Metroplex.

Fun and challenging, the course annually hosts an assortment of member tournaments for men, women, couples, and juniors. In addition, it has gained the respect of the LPGA by hosting their Mary Kay Classic for three years, as well as the PGA Senior Tour, by hosting the Reunion Pro-Am for three years and the Bank One Championship for two years. In 2014, Bent Tree Country Club hosted the Women’s Texas State Amateur Championship and the following year hosted the Men’s Texas State Amateur Championships.Champions like Tom Watson, Larry Nelson, Jan Stephenson, Don January, Orville Moody, and many others add Bent Tree Country Club to their impressive list of tour site wins.
