Beautiful Setting, Excellent Condition, Thoroughly Unenjoyable
Little Bennett is in a beautiful setting surrounded by woods. The course is in better shape than any course I've played for less than $120, with soft greens and fairway, Even taking these positive into account, it isn't a very enjoyable round. It seemed like nearly every hole had extreme elevation changes. The fairways were very narrow, which i can appreciate as a challenge, but way too many blind shot. I probably won't be playing this course again unless there are no tee times available at the other local courses.
Beautiful, But Difficult
I haven't played this course in over 5 years, and it will probably be another 5 before I come back. I think Little Bennett is a beautiful course--well kept, beautiful dogwood trees and environmental areas, with lush grass, and beautiful views of the mountains. The fairways were in excellent shape, and the rough was cut down a bit, so reasonable to play out of. However, the greens were treacherous! As always (and this is why I haven't been back for a while), they are extremely fast to the point of almost being unfair. Holes #1, 9 and 18 are extremely difficult because of the uphill/downhill tee shots, and other holes have visibility problems with the elevation changes. You really have to think your way around this tract, and make sure you are smart in your club selection. Lots of odd bounces that can put you into trouble. I'm really okay with some of those issues, but the greens just really turn me off. The staff--inside and out--are extremely nice and welcoming. If you're going to play Little Bennett, take your patience...and plenty of extra golf balls.
Excellent Staff both Club House and Course Maintenance. Course in great condition. Layout challenging.
Excellent course. Not for beginners. Plenty of green to tee for environmental purposes. Staff, both golf shop and course maintenance excellent.
