Please review the information below for more requirements regarding golf carts and LSUVs.

· Must be equipped with rear view mirrors if used on BT roads and should move to side of the road to allow cars to pass where it is safe with adequate visibility.

· Must carry liability insurance that permits operation within BT and be registered with Bent Tree. Registration can be done at the Front Gate.

· May only be used on BT paved and gravel roads or owner’s property (no off-roading). Only golf carts with a paid trail fee or paid daily use fee may be driven on the golf course.

Course Etiquette Reminder:
We've noticed some after-hours activity on the golf course with kids riding bikes. While walking the course after hours is allowed, please remember to stay on the cart paths for safety and course maintenance reasons.

Beverage Cart Success:
Our new beverage cart has been a big hit! It's now easier than ever to enjoy refreshments while you play. As a friendly reminder, Bent Tree encourages you to purchase your food and beverages from the Tavern or the Pro Shop. The convenience of the beverage cart enhances your on-course experience.

Pet Policy on the Course:
We are still seeing dog waste around hole 6. If you walk your dog here, please clean up after them. If you live near the course and allow your dog to roam off-leash, please be aware that they may be making a mess on the course. The Pro Shop and Public Safety are working to address this issue, and we appreciate your cooperation.

Thank you for helping us maintain the beauty and integrity of Bent Tree Golf Course. Enjoy your weekend and happy golfing!

News from The Stables

Meet Jack. He is going to be very busy over the next month. Jack is a gelding Hackney pony. He is black with a white blaze with two white socks on opposite legs. He’s a hardworking pony. He is very trustworthy and Jack likes to be treated with respect and he can be sensitive toward feelings. When it is not summer camp of Youth Fest, consider hiring Jack for an arena ride for a small person in your life. He has an easy walk and makes a novice rider feel confident in the saddle. Jack will eat anything, even human food, which is not good for him. So, folks should not eat near his snout. Jack loves affection and he loves to be brushed. Jack has two pals, the ponies he shares a paddock with, Peter Pan and Cookie Monster. Ruby, the matriarch of the stables, respects Jack, (which is saying quite a bit about Jack's character and skill level); and thus, they work well together, especially if a novice rider needs the trail leader to use the lead rope to guide Jack and the rider. Jack loves food, (did we say he will eat anything!) so apples and carrots are a great treat to donate to the stables. Call today to schedule your next visit or ride: (706) 692-6322. See you on the trails!

From dung beetles to seals, steering by the stars is a critical skill, as it aids them in migrating, finding food, or searching out mates. Even a creature as small as a dung beetle, with a brain the size of a grain of rice, can gaze up at the starry night and decide where to go.   – National Geographic
