Greens were in good shape

This course gets a lot of play & for good reason. It has a simple old school design. There are only a few holes that don't lie on flat ground. Basically, everything is right in front of you here. Greens are poa & they are quite tricky. Overall good value golf course. And right now its in great shape.

Good weather

Good course at reasonable prices - pleasant to walk.

There was a frost delay the day I played and the staff handled it very well. The pro shot staff was excellent and promptly paired me up with a local twosome. Enjoyed the round very much.

Good Outing

Course was in great shape after the rains. What more can I say? Next time I won't write a review. You should ask for a long drawn out synopsis.

Great condition, great value

Bennet valley is a city run course and they do a fantastic job. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the greens and fairways are always well groomed. It like every course is suffering from the drought with some bare patches but overall, with all things considered the team do a great job presenting a nice playable, affordable golf course.

Too crowded Too slow pace. Lots of hooligans

Okay looking course. Nice pro shop, nice employees. Low green fees. And ridiculously crowded and slow everyday. I live in town. Have played 6 times, but will Never again. Last round: walked off the course at the 12th hole, 5hours 30 minutes! Course attracts lots of young hooligans who carry cases of beer and drink it all during game. Lots of bad behavior. You've been warned!

The course was green, not much water hazards, sand around the greens

Nice long, straight fairways to get a good long drive. Be sure to stay right on the 1st hole so you can see the green and shoot it over the creek. Lots of chances to par some of the holes.
