Bent Brook

  4 Reviews

Bent Brook is a very nice golf course. The director of golf, Mickey Smith, gives outstanding golf lessons. like Paul C. said there are 3 sets on  holes. Brook, Graveyard, and Windmill. It has a good golf cart gps system. The course is pretty open so you can miss right or left a little. In 2002 Bent Brook was rated #1 public course in Birmingham. Although its not #1 now its still in the top 10. Book you a tee time now!

Beautiful course! I don't golf much, it's really not my thing. I was impressed with the course and the shop. My boyfriend, who golfs often, loved  this course and went back several times. He liked the GPS in the golf carts, and to be honest I was really enjoying that too.

This course is my home course.  It is flat enough to walk any of the three nines. It is a good medium length course with plenty of challenges.  The price is right.  And they have senior rates during the week.  Check their website for deals and packages.   They also have a decent practice facilities with range, chipping green and putting green.

Bent Brook is a great public golf course with reasonable rates. There are 27 holes made up of three 9-hole courses named Windmill, Brook and Graveyard. The greens are bent grass and they roll very well. The course is always in great shape. There is a driving range and good practice putting and chipping greens. The carts are equipped with GPS systems that displays a detail layout of each hole and yardage to the flag.

Windmill is the nine that you can see from I-459. It is fairly flat and open, and is probably the most forgiving of the three courses. It plays to par 35 with only one par 5.

Brook is the middle course and it is the longest and has some more challenging holes. Notably hole number 6 is a real bear. It is a par 4 that plays 440 yard from the white tees. From an elevated tee box, you need to hit a great drive to have a chance of going for the green. The green is generous size, but protected by water in the front and sand bunkers back-left and right.  

Graveyard is the final 9-hole course and it can be pretty difficult. Water is in play on six of the nine holes. An old graveyard is adjacent to the tee box on number eight.
