Course was in good condition for the fall. Possibly over booked, very slow play. Maybe cut back on number of tee times per hour.

Always a great course to play.

The staff is great to talk to and the course is always fun and challenging. You never have the same round twice when you play here and for the price makes it a weekend getaway every time.

Do not play!

Pace of play was horrid. Thankfully the weather was mid 70’s so waiting wasn’t atrocious. Gave up with 2 holes left because of wait. Do not waste your time.

Great Experience

Love this course because it is challenging and open! Not too many trees yet is long enough and has enough hills to challenge any golfer. The staff does a great job keeping this course in shape. Highly recommend.

Good course, slow play

Had a good time playing. It's not a very long course but still had some challenges. Overall good condition considering how early it is in the season. The pace of play was very slow, due to the group in front of us. Overall would play here again.

A LARRY PACKARD MASTER PIECE

Benson probably gets a higher review than it deserves but i confess i am in love with the course. If your an Omaha golf person you understand what Benson means to the Golf Community.

Any how the greens are great, The course is tough to walk in places.

Since Larry Packard designed it you know it is tough. Worth playing and recommend it to everyone who is looking for a great muni to play..

Better than before

I've played this course before but this was the best this place has ever been. Great looking fairways and the greens where fast. Did play the roll of fix marks on green, too many not repairing their ball marks but that is not the courses fault the players need to step up. It is a great course to play.
