Every city needs a Blackhawk

Pretentious golfers, steer clear. This course is for people who love the game but don't have big money to spend on it. Personally, I'm glad that it still exists.

Don't get it twisted, the people who whine on here about the fairways and bunkers are right. It's not going to win any awards. The greens are decent, the tee boxes are up to par, and the layout is fun — scoreable, but with enough challenges to keep it interesting.

Twice in the past month I've played in under 4 hours with groups of humble, young golfers who are just out for a good deal and a fun time. Good players, too. Just don't expect a perfect lie and don't pay the peak rate. Beware that they expect the carts back by 8 p.m., well before dark.

Nice Course

Price was great. Greens were nice but would’ve liked the pace of play to be better. Overall enjoyed the course.

Rathole

The course is either going to be sold or becoming residential real estate! The fairways were horrible, tee boxes just the same. Greens were nice. The place was preparing for a funeral. If you like to play golf, don’t waste your money here.

Course Upgrade

This course has the potential to be a great track to play but the fairways are spotty at best and the bunkers are ridiculous to play out of. The bunkers are the most neglected part of this course, they have grass growing out of them and I don't think they have been raked in years. REPAIR THE BUNKERS TO PLAYABLE CONDITIONS!!

One photo is a bunker the other is a fairway. It is tough to tell the difference.

Don't bother

The course is in terrible shape and you will often have a hard time finding your ball on the fairway. If they charged 15 bucks a round it would be a better deal but for 30-40 bucks on weekends you can play infinitely better courses.

Course is open but needs work

It is one of the few courses open at this time, but the course conditions need work. A good basic course but not one attractive to players used to better conditions. Manyhomes are fairly near the fairways..

Getting Better

Not the worst course I’ve ever been too. Pace of play is great, it’s never too busy here, and the tees and greens are improving. Must admit the fairways are barren in certain areas, but the value is definitely there. Solid course, inexpensive, and enjoyable. I can travel out to Manor or Lago Vista, even TeraVista anytime. Blackhawk is my “go-to” when I need the extra practice on an actual course.

A course that has terribly gone down hill!

Pretty sad the conditions of this course. The sand traps look like craters after a bomb went off. Crab grass is the official grass of the fairway. The rough, well, weeds that might eat you if you walk into them. Look else where to play.

Fun course

Really fun course to play. Sections of fairway can be a bit bumpy and hard, but the greens are all really solid. Very friendly staff - great value coming out to Blackhawk!

Getting better

This obviously isn’t a top notch course, BUT...if you’re wanting to play somewhere local, not extremely busy, and at a great VALUE, Black Hawk is the spot. The greens and fairways are getting MUCH BETTER. I played last week and hasn’t been in more than 3 weeks and saw a drastic improvement. Anyhow, it’s solid, and playable.

Needs TLC

The greens were in amazing shape but that is really the only redeeming quality of this course. The bunkers had weeds and standing water in them. The fairways were riddled with dead spots of grass or no grass at all.

MOO!

Though a nice layout, this course is literally in as bad a shape as any course I have ever played in 34 years of playing. A total shame. I'm not even sure how to describe it. Greens were surprisingly decent. Won't be back to Blackhawk.
