The 18 holes at Frank House Municipal Golf Course embroil golfers in a test of skills and mental toughness as they guide orbs over a lush, emerald carpet. After completing the relatively straight front nine, players must adjust aim for shots on the back nine, where all but three of the holes make severe dogleg turns. One of these doglegs, the 18th, forces players to lay up short of a lake, and then approach over its width or try to freeze it over with an icy glare.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 6,346 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 69 from the back tees * Course rating of 119 from the back tees * Three sets of tees per hole

A trio of nine-hole golf courses come together to form Bent Brook Golf Club, which also incorporates a distinctive farmhouse-style clubhouse. While the Brook, Graveyard, and Windmill courses are each unique in their own rights, a few common themes emerge. The first is water, and a lot of it: on the Graveyard course, for example, five large lakes crowd holes number 4 through 7 and demand challenging, hazard-carrying tee shots and approaches. Other features include the meticulously kept bent grass greens, Tiff 419 Bermuda fairways, and tee boxes with four sets of tees, all of which combine to render enjoyable rounds for every level of golfer. After a round, groups can gather around a table at the the Bent Brook Restaurant to rehash their day on the course over selections from the deli-style menu.
