Sports & Recreation

Outdoor Activity


A mild four-season climate and proximity to rural areas combine to make Benson a paradise for outdoor recreation enthusiasts. The action starts right here in town, with our excellent parks and recreation facilities, and continues beyond the city limits with a host of options for hiking and camping, canoeing and kayaking, hunting and fishing. The North Carolina beaches are also close enough for easy day trips.

Golf


Golf is a year-round sport here, and there are a variety of beautiful and challenging courses nearby. For a change of pace, the legendary golfing playgrounds of Pinehurst and Myrtle Beach are a short drive away.

Spectator Sports


For spectators, the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill metro area is home to NHL hockey, two minor league baseball teams and major college sporting events.
