Public Safety Updates:

Surge Protectors and Power Strips - Fire Prevention

Surge protectors and power strips are common electrical components in most homes. They are frequently used incorrectly though, and this can lead to housefires. It is also important when purchasing and using these items that you ensure they are UL (Underwriters Laboratories) certified. UL certified products meet acceptable fire and electrical safety standards that are important for protecting your home. Please take time to access more information on this topic straight from Underwriters Laboratories on the Bent Tree website at the link below:

Who would be interested in ping pong at The Courts? Would consider adding only if enough interest exists. Please email Bob Coleman at We will allow a couple of weeks to collect info to make decision on whether to add.

We want to hear from you! Please complete the following survey about the Golf Pro Shop to help us make sure we are serving you best. The survey is only three short questions, so we ask you to take a few moments to fill it out. SURVEY

Safety and cell phones

There are many safety rules in the barn and the arenas. First and foremost, there is no smoking for obvious reasons (can someone say hey, there’s a bunch of hay?). Riders, regardless of their age or experience, need to always be careful around horses. Riders should never walk right behind a horse or make sudden movements or loud noises near them. Children should never run through the barn or in the arena. Riders should sit up straight, relax their back without slouching, hold the reins in both hands with some slack, and keep their feet in the stirrups. Avoid letting go of the reins (we have seen novice riders do that!) to pull out a cell phone and to take photos. It’s the equivalent to taking your hands off the steering wheel to text. There will be times along the trail where the horses will stop. At that time, if a rider is compelled to take photos with their phone, then this may be the time, but check with the trail guide first. Always talk to the guide about photo opportunities before the trail ride begins. Just remember it is easy to drop a phone while on top of a horse (one trail ride this happened three times! For real, we just can't make this stuff up) and it is just as easy for that 1000+ pound animal to step on that phone. Crunch. The Trail rides are busiest Friday through Sunday, so for the best selection of dates and times call early or choose Monday through Thursday. Either way, call today to schedule your next ride: (706) 692-6322. See you on the trails!

News from the Animal Shelter

Fostering Love by fostering a cat 

Fostering an animal has been proven to help with feelings of loneliness and depression without worrying that maybe you aren’t ready for another companion. Our cats/ kittens are co-mingled in one small building. Some feel that stress more than others. Sweet Callie is 10 years old and came to us when her mom went into a care center. She went from only cat to one of 17-18 all the time. She easily takes her twice daily thyroid pills and mostly tries to stay away from the activity of kittens and other cats. She would be so much happier being a foster cat in a quiet home without other cats.

If you might consider Callie or one of the other cats or kittens, please text or call 678-414-1047 to visit the shelter. Foster, adopt, donate or volunteer - we need all.
