The course is in great shape. Tee boxes are very hard so bring lots of tees. Reconstructing 1 tee box so use a forward temporary tee. Staff friendly especially Dana at the turn. The course is tight but fair. Greens run true and were average for speed. I like the layout. I will be back.

"Very Poor Pace of Play"

The course is always in good shape. For the amount of play, the greens are also in very good condition.

The problem is the overbooking and poor pace of play. This past Saturday was a perfect example.

As we pulled up the first tee (for a 12:10 tee time), there was a crowd (of at least five golf carts deep) waiting to hit. After speaking to the starter, we were told that was a large group of 30 golfers sent off early in the morning. He also told us that the pro shop is now sending groups out as much and as fast as possibly, because apparently they’re not making enough money when they set tee times 10-12 minutes apart. So basically they’re piling in as many golfers into a day as they see fit. A far-too-familiar story with most of the courses in the area.

So because of this, our round took over five hours. We waited forever on every single tee box and every single fairway. There was no ranger in sight to move slower groups along. Guys were hitting multiple tee shots whenever they pleased. Sadly, this is not the first time we’ve witnessed these type of things here. There was even a group of six golfers behind us. Something that I’ve never seen on a golf course.

I understand they’re running a business, and like any other business, you have to make a profit. But management clearly does not have the golfer’s best interest or experience in mind.

Long story short: nice public course but pace of play can be the worst in the area.

Bensalem CC is really in good shape. The greens are running true and the fairways are good for the most part. Just don’t hit it in the rough. If you do find it, you can’t get it out. Nice course for the golf now deal I bought

It had warmed up into the 40's/low50's for a few days, the snow had melted but the ground was very mushy/muddy and was to be expected. Cart path only was expected also - still finished the round in just under 3 1/2 hours playing by myself. A couple of the temporary flag poles were literally frozen into the cups but wasn't a problem.

Get about 12-13 holes in and I give up the pace of play stinks at this course. Seriously need to fix it, last 8 times I’ve played here I average 14 holes played. Just not worth the money. Rather spend $20 more and finish 18.
