Bentwater Golf Club Course Review
Bentwater joins Atlanta’s ever-expanding list of excellent daily fee layout courses. Designed by Mike Dasher, who worked for Arthur Hills at the time Towne Lake Hills was designed. Bentwater’s rolling, wooded terrain offers some splendid long range views along with an enjoyable and playable challenge. Wide fairways with mostly level landing areas reduce the impact of the frequent but modest elevation changes, and the greens complexes vary from tame to testy.
With a few notable exceptions, the par 4s are of moderate length and difficulty, with a strong and visually appealing group of par 5s that rank with any in Atlanta. The downhill 14th offers the possibility of getting home in two with some risk involved, with the other three all three-shot holes that require some precision and thought.
There are some holes with significant disparities in distance between the blue and gold tees, and it will make a difference which set you select, although there is not a huge amount of difference in yardage overall. Excellent conditions for a new course and one of four in the north metro area managed by HMS.
