Bentwater Yacht and Country Club

The Bentwater community and the Yacht & Country Club have become a hallmark development, located just north of Conroe, Texas. Bentwater nestles up to a 160,000 acre national forest as well as Lake Conroe's 22,000 acres of beauty and recreation. Both inspired the vision that has since become home to 2,300 residents. Bentwater is a combination of tranquil, upscale living comingling with a multitude of recreational amenities.

Designed by Scott Miller, The Miller Course at Bentwater Yacht and Country Club seems to have been carved along the natural curve of Lake Conroe north of Houston. This 18-hole, 72-par course measures 6,809 yards from the back tees and balances the difficult holes with several stretches of fun. This parkland-style course features abundant fairways with nearly no rough, and champion bermuda greens that are surrounded by distinctive swales.

The course was designed with ease of play for the members as a primary objective and that, along with the natural beauty provided by dense stands of trees and the proximity to Lake Conroe, promotes an enjoyable round of golf for players of all skill levels. These facts have made the Miller Course the membership's course of choice at this 54-hole golf community.

While working at the Houston Post, Kevin Newberry wrote this; "Scott Miller treats golf courses as large parks and tries to create an atmosphere that is natural, not contrived. Unlike many courses built in the 1980's, when architects deviated from traditional style by forcing players to hit certain shots, Miller gives them an option on almost every hole... leaving the fronts of the greens open to allow players to use more creative shot making."
