Administrative Updates:


The first round of address signs are scheduled to be installed early next week. We apologize on behalf of the contractor who ran into several hurdles along the way for this round. We hope they have now worked out the kinks and expect this process to be much more efficient on our next minimum order. 

Public Safety Updates:


Thank you to those who attended and the residents who contributed their time and money to make the 2ND annual Public Safety Day event a success. Special thanks also to Pickens County FD for bringing their Fire Safety Funhouse to the event. Our goal of providing educational and fun experiences to the community was accomplished. All the stations and activities were very popular, and the kids had a blast! Pictures have been posted on the Bent Tree website and can be viewed with the following link:

Congratulations to the winners of this years Lee Wilson Collegiate Classic, Team Captain Jay Biddle representing the University of Kentucky as well as Brian Orletsky, Mike Moffitt and Roger Dennington. The weather turned out to be great after an iffy start on Saturday and Sunday morning. A big shoutout to John Leach and his crew for preparing the course in the early hours of the morning on Saturday and Sunday, changing cups in the dark, mowing greens and blowing leaves. If you see them this week, make sure to stop by and say thank you!

Couples Club Championship:

Congratulations to Ralph and Theresa Shattock on winning the 2023 Couples Club Championship. Ralph had one of his best rounds, shooting 76, but he couldn't have picked a better partner in Theresa who was able to hold him together coming down the stretch! Russell Smith & Summer Turner took home the Gross prize with a strong 84! Thank you to everyone who participated.
