Bent Tree Golf Course

Bent Tree’s Stunning # 7

This update provided by the Bent Tree Pro Shop.

“Hello Golfer Friends,

July has been a very active month on the course!

Youth Week started the month off with a bang and we were happy to see all those smiling faces on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. That said; we would like to say thank you to our volunteers for youth week. George Preisinger, Jim Gunter, Joe Quinzi, Robby Cole, Tim Stephens, Dean Ferris, Bill Brush, Ben Ferris,Joe Purdy, Henry Hall for helping on the driving range and putting green. Thank you for making this event a success for our kids!

Even with a rainy start our couples July Tournament was a success. We started out with a rain delay and had dry weather for a full 18 holes. Someone up there likes us! The clouds started to gather and the rain came down soon after we finished. (Thank you Linda Leopard for being so thoughtful.) For those of you that thought the golf fairy took care of your clubs and carts that day it was Linda. While everyone was inside Linda took it upon herself to cover the golf clubs before it rained.

Here are the results for the Couples Tournament

1st Place Gross – Denny Williams & Judy Crain/Thurman & Carol Slone

1st Net – Bob & Kimberley Holfels/David & Maureen Cohn

2nd Gross -Bo & Kelly Anthony/John Menzies & Sandra Potts
