Poor course

Never played at such a mismanaged and poorly maintained course. Fairways and roughs were about the same height. Greens were mottled with bare areas and not mowed to putt on. We played the 2 putt rule. City of Benson, Az. should be ashamed for letting a once fine course go down to this level.

I know you're short staffed, but that's the worst course I've ever played on. You can lose a ball on the fairway the grass and weeds are so tall. And the greens are horrible. I used to enjoy this course.

Needs work

Although this course hasn't been in great shape for years, it hasn't improved. Bunkers are overgrown with weeds, the rough hasn't been cut in awhile, and some greens were in rough condition. Par e fairways haven't been cut.

greens

the putting greens on the course seems to be as if they have not been cut in three days, but you could see that they were cut that morning cause of the markings, but in all the times i have played this course , this was the most horrible the greens ever were to be played on, the time of year when they are aerating the greens isnt as bad as it was today, it just was fury, and the tee boxes seemed to have never been maintained in over a week or betters time

A good place to work on your game

This course has fallen victim to COVID. They lost a great deal of their workers. Let's start with the positives; It was 20 dollars. The greens are great. Ok-the rest of the story- the tee-boxes are playable. The traps not only don't have sand, they have things growing from them. The fairways are good enough,( imagine if the fairway was cut like the first cut of a really really great course) The pace of play was good and the layout is a little bit of a challenge. At the far end of the driving range is a special place to work on your wedges. You can park right behind the driving range. Benson AZ has a few good places to eat, and the course has a place to eat as well. Go to San Pedro to relax and improve your game

The course has considerable potential but needs work and there are signs that an effort is being made. Greens are improving. Cart path improvements done. Fairways fair. Still no sand in sand traps . Not too many people on the course which I like because I can play fast. Haven't used the restaurant and bar due to covid.

ROUGH SHAPE

FOUR OF THE GREENS ARE IN TOUGH SHAPE
FAIRWAYS HAVE LOTS OF BALD SPOTS
SAND TRAPS ARE HARD AND WEEDY
WEDNESDAYS ARE GOOD DAYS TO PLAY. LESS TRAFFIC.
I KNOW THEY ARE HURTING BECAUSE THEY CANNOT GET THE HELP FROM THE PRISON CREW. HOPE THAT RESOLVES ITSELF SOON.

Fun course, challenging layout

Most fairways are good, tee boxes and a few greens are in need of better maintenance. Work. Carts are old & jerky, but still working. I like the course, just hoping for improvements in course care & maintenance.

Bad shape, but I like the course.

Nice layout. Fun to play when course is maintained. Problem right now is that it's in horrendous shape. Let's hope it gets better. Questionable how soon I come back.

Never again

You have your options of dirt mud or crab grass. I understand why it was 30$ after tax to play during the season.This by far is the worst course I’ve ever played greens were terrible with 90% of them having actual dirt and tire marks. The only thing that made this course playable was the hour drive to the course.

TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE

Do NOT waste your money on this course. The Fairwys are TERRIBLE, the greens are WORSE. THERE IS NOTHING GOOD ABOUT THIS COURSE EXCEPT THE RESTAURANT. We have played this course many times in the past and have never played a course in this bad of shape & condition. They should be ashamed to charge for this & be more ashamed go call this a golf course!

Terrible course conditions.

PLEASE SAVE YOUR MONEY.
We played this course a number of times about 1 year ago and it was fine, not great but not bad. Now, the course should be closed. It is absolutely terrible. We will not be going back until major changes have been made, if they ever do make changes, I can not say enough about how terrible the greens are, the fairways are dirt, it is just absolutely terrible. The restaurant still had good food & drink with a friendly staff.

Still not enough maintenance being dome

Last year we golfed twice a week from December thru March, this year we golfed Five times total from November 15th toApril 15th. I will. Be hoping for more improvement next year To those in charge of maintenance I would recommend looking into Zoysia grass it requires less water It would be worth trying.you can buy seed or plugs that fill in quickly.

It's a shame.

Most of the greens were awful! The sand traps are filled with patchy grass and gopher holes and rocks! The tee boxes that had grass looked like they haven't been mowed in a week, and it was hard to find a flat spot to tee off. Fairways were very patchy with a lot of dead grass. I won't be going back, even if its free! I feel like we got robbed!
