Golf Course Tour
Bentwinds Country Club, one of Tom Hunter’s only golf courses was designed and shaped through lush farm lands and tall pines and oaks. Recently renovated, Kris Spence took what was a great base to make Bentwinds one of Central North Carolina’s finest golf courses. Strategic bunker placement and wonderfully defined tiff sport bermudagrass fairways creates challenging shot angles to our A-1 A-4 bentgrass greens. A walker’s delight, Bentwinds 5 sets of tees accommodates golfers of all skill levels.
The Opening Nine
The opening nine at Bentwinds is a Par 36 that plays 3,400 yards from the back tees and 2,600 yards from the front tees. The front nine consist of two long par 5's, five skillfully crafted par 4's and two demanding par 3's. A player will encounter narrow fairways, sloping greens, and a variety of hazards on their journey.
After completing the front side, the player can get refreshments (and another sleeve of balls) at the Bar & Grill at the turn. A cool drink and a bite to eat will give the player the required nourishment to embark upon the perilous journey to complete the back nine.
The Back Nine
The back nine measures slightly over 3,300 yards from the back tees and 2,900 yards from the front tees. The back nine has two par 5's, both being risk-reward holes, giving you either an eagle or maybe a bogey. There are five par 4's which will test the player's patience and skills with a variety of different clubs. The par 3's are short but the sloping greens demand accuracy and putting finesse.
The Final Three
The final three holes are difficult challenges that require carefully placed tee shots and solid iron play to reach well-protected green complexes without blowing their handicap sky high.
After the round, the player can take a deep breath, and enjoy a refreshment either in the Bar & Grill or out on our deck overlooking the beautiful 18th hole.
Our eighteen holes of golf usually leave the player scratching their head wondering why they didn't score better, but realizing they had a great day and wanting to come back and play another round.
It is said that Bentwinds Country Club, nicknamed the Breeze, never plays the same way twice and this unique quality always brings the player back for more.
