Bent Tree is a gated, golfing community in the North Georgia Mountains and is located just one hour north of Atlanta. The 3,500 acre community has a lot to offer its residents. Golfers will delight in the Championship 18 Hole Golf Course designed by Joe Lee. The beautiful, well-maintained course features beautiful mountain views, streams that meander the course, a water wheel, a covered bridge, waterfalls, and lots of deer watching you play. Bent Tree has a very active MGA and LGA. After you finish your game, you can retreat to the 19th Hole Tavern for meals and drinks. The Pro Shop is run by a Class A PGA Professional, Russell Smith, and his knowledgeable staff. If golf is not your game of choice, Bent Tree also has six tennis courts. Two indoor courts provide year-round fun. There are two outside Laykold hard courts and two outside clay courts. The Tennis Pro Shop offers a full range of services including lessons for all age and skill levels. Pickle Ball is now becoming very popular here in Bent Tree and there are lessons and tournaments available for Pickle Ball.
Bent Tree is one of the very few communities in North Georgia to feature an Equestrian Facility. The barn at the stables has 15 large 12×12 stalls, a tack room, grooming areas, and wash racks. There are two riding arenas as well. One may schedule guided trail rides, take lessons, or participate in any of the functions that are sponsored by the Equestrian Facility.
Also inside the gates is the beautiful Lake Tamarack. Spanning 110 acres, this man-made lake is 1,450 feet above sea level, measures 85 feet deep at the dam, is fed by several streams, and is stocked yearly with trout and other fish. Only electric motors are allowed on the lake which keeps the lake pristine. Canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, and pedal boats can often be seen traversing the waters.
If a pool is more of your style, Bent Tree has a large family pool and an adult pool located in between the entrance and the 19th Hole Tavern/Golf Pro Shop. The family pool area is easily accessible by a newly installed handicap ramp and there are clean bathrooms there as well.
Some of the other amenities Bent Tree has to offer are a dog park, hiking trails, a library, a clubhouse, a beach area, a covered pavilion, a playground, a basketball court, a Bocce Ball court, a beach volleyball area, picnic tables, and restrooms at the beach area.
The last item is technically not an amenity but it is unique to our community. In Bent Tree, you are able to travel the entire community by golf cart or utility vehicles (such as a Polaris or Gator). You can also have motorcycles.
