Course Reviews

Slowly but surely this course is improving. Always been an excellent design and a challenge to play. As with most municipal courses, the amount of play makes them difficult to maintain. Recent reseeding in several fairways seems to be working. Carts are junk.

I have played Benson Hills for a few years now. I do love to play the course. It's layout and difficulty are a nice challenge for a golfer of my ability. However, on two separate occasions I have had problems with the courses Marshall. The first was when this man rolled up in his cart on the #4 tee box and yelled that we needed to hurry up as my wife was in her back swing. The second time was just this last weekend when I was playing with my brothers. We had slowed down to allow the foursome behind us to play through, when he again rolled up and told us that we needed to pick up the pace. We were on the third tee box. He then sat there glaring at us and speaking about us to the other foursome as though we were not there and could not hear his words. This is the last person that I would want representing me if I were management of Benson Hills Golf Course. He is arrogant, rude and extremely unprofessional. When our round was over, we were followed into the club house and glared at. I believe he knew that we planned on complaining. If you are a recreational golfer such as my self, I would avoid this course on the weekends.

Played this course thirty years ago and it hasn't changed much. Little difficult for a beginer but a nice course. Back nine more difficult then the front nine.

Good Course. Good Value.

Very hilly course fairly difficult
