What the club says: Benton Hall is a challenging parkland course set amongst natural woodland and rolling countryside. Renowned for its impressive views, each hole represents its own challenge, with the river Blackwater meandering through the course adding to the picture postcard views. After your round of golf, relax in the Clubhouse or on the terrace overlooking the lake with its abundance of wildlife.

Courteous players

I joined Benton Hall recently but was nearly put off by the negative comments on here about pace of play and bad etiquette. These worries were totally unfounded. I played as a solo player today and was waved through by four separate three and four balls who had no real reason to do so and were all very cheery as I played my way through. Very courteous golfers. Super pleased to have chosen Benton Hall as my club, it’s a beautiful course in fine condition despite the recent heavy rainfall. The greens are fast and true, and hold perfectly with well struck approaches. Looking forward to a fine summer of golf now!

Main problem is other golfers

Love the course itself but after a number of bad experiences with extremely slow and repeatedly poor behaviour by other players we no longer play this course.

Yeah good course but, for some reason, other golf course users here are often a bit lacking in manners.

Nice layout but mind the geese

An intriguing layout with a mixture of short and long holes as well as some tight drives to manage in between trees. Course was in good condition and being well fertliised by the loca geese. Make sure you wash you shoes or cart wheels post round! Once small bugbear, prices for visitors had been hiked due to Covid-19 which seemed a little short-sighted for my personal liking

nice but v busy

This is a interesting and tricky course.
Greens were great when we went but fairways very dry.
I dont think they have the ability to water the fairways at all
But note, its very busy all day with lots of members and guests
Guest fees are steep and the clubhouse was closed due to covid

The course was in good condition but the greens were not quite as good as they were 2 weeks ago. Overall it was good and the general overall condition is also good.

Very nice course very nice staff and facilitys, greens were very good and generally apart from an odd fairway course was in good condition. Very pretty course with a challenging last five holes would join it if it was nearer home.

Very nice but challenging course

Enjoyed the course, the back nine is certainly more difficult. Well looked after.
The bar and food service was disappointing, 30 minute wait for a sandwich is poor. To be fair the lady warned us but clearly not enough staff. Shame because otherwise a nice set up.
