Dallas' Debonair Country Club

By Courtney Clark

Bent Tree Country Club in Dallas is a traditional member-owned Club where membership is by invitation. Although it prides itself on high-quality membership and service, Bent Tree encourages family involvement and togetherness. With a multitude of activities for youth and adults, the club has everything needed for a complete day: dining services, a fitness center, tennis activities, pool, and - of course - golf.

Bent Tree has been in business for decades. In 1972, former Dallas mayor Robert S. Folsom hired Desmond Muirhead to design the course. Muirhead was known as a talented architect who believed in rhythm, balance, and sequence and to follow nature's pattern. His values are obvious when visitors drive up to the beautiful, sloping course. The 200 acres of cotton fields and pasture land, which were part of the Shawnee Trail in the 1800s, now carries the memory of hundreds of thousands of cattle and ranchers throughout history. Known as the first North-South cattle trail in Texas, the Shawnee Trail was useful to herd cattle to markets.

Bent Tree encourages youth activities to support a healthy lifestyle. Youth activities include summer camps, swimming lessons and competitions, golf camps, and tennis clinics. With a variety of options, children are sure to find an option that they enjoy. The Club is also a supporter of the immediate and greater community. Bent Tree Country Club is now a partner with the First Tee of Greater Dallas which mentors and teaches the young generation about values and principles in life through the game of golf. The Club will also host the first and only Tee It Up For The Troops golf event in November. This event will also support Carry The Load, which is a great organization founded in Dallas to support troops and their related causes.

BTCC is the home Club to members coming from four different generations, and the management team is hard at work to make every day's service and activities relevant to all demographics. For many people and over many years, Bent Tree Country Club is "home away from home".
