Nebraska/Omaha golfers - Bent Tree or Quarry Oaks or other?

Just need a quick bit of advice from locals or those who've played both. I'll be in Omaha 10/19 through 10/20 for a wedding and I'm planning to get in a round of golf that Saturday. I'm staying downtown, so Bent Tree is about 1/2 the drive that Quarry Oaks is. However, from what I can tell in comparing pictures and layout Quarry Oaks is a much better course.



So the question, is it well worth the drive out to Quarry Oaks over Bent Tree? Or is there a course I'm missing that would be the must play since I've only got time for a single round?



And before anyone asks, I'm not a private club member so I can't try to get on Omaha Country Club which would be my 1st choice.

    Make the drive to Ashland and play Quarry Oaks, it is right off the interstate and easy to get to. I get out to Quarry Oaks about once a year and enjoy it every time.

    I can’t tell you about Bent Tree since I’ve never played it, but Quarry Oaks is my favorite course in the state. I think it’s earned it’s positive reviews.



    Well worth the drive.

    I have never played Quarry, but Bent Tree is a great track. Fun and challenging layout.

    I went and checked to see which course one sees off of I-80 when passing through Omaha, and it's Oak Hills CC.



    Looks like you can play it using boxgroove for $85 with boxgroove's free membership.
