Great course for the price
Very good greens, fairways need some filling in, bunkers definitely need sand but the layout is challenging making up for the other minor issues. I definitely recommend it, especially for the price..
You should train your staff not to ask for a tip when you order a hotdog. I always tip but when she says would you like to leave me gratuity, it really makes me not want to.
Greens Good but layout not real challenging
First time in a long time I have played this course. Greens were in good shape , the course is not tough at all. For the money a little over priced. $44 on a holiday
Both fun and disappointing
Haven't played this course for over 20 years. Revisited with a discount deal. It's a classic, straightforward design that is being neglected. It hasn't rained in a week and the bunkers were full of water, mud and unconditioned. Fairways had patches of hard clay. Saint Augustine grass taking over in some places. Just needs some TLC and it will be fine. A great course for hitting your driver. Greens were good. But who knows what they'll be like next time, given the condition of other things. Sad.
Course has been better
Cheap rounds after 4 p.m. makes this course a fun one to play. However, the past two times I've played within the past month, we've experienced pools of water instead of sand traps. I didn't expect the sand traps to be looking great the first time because it rained hard very recently, but the second time I went it rained 5 days earlier. The fairways are covered with concrete-hard dirt patches that make your ball skip an extra 20 yards or bounce off at weird angles. The greens were fantastic which made it all worth it.
Things to improve:
- Sand traps
- Operational beer cart?
- Power steering in the golf carts?
Pay attention to details
SInce it had rained the day before, the course was in decent shape. My beef lies in the golf carts. We played at 3:22 and the first cart we got, was dying by the 6th hole. We swapped it out at the turn and that cart did not make it to the 10th tee. When I checked the battery, all terminals were severely corroded so it would not take nor hold a charge. I had to walk back the cart area and get another. My third card was charged well but the area to put my phone and other items was full of cigarette butts. Spend some time to train your teenage cart attendants to take care of the batteries (especially since they cast over $700) and clean the carts. It will lead to happy golfers that like to tip.
Fix the dirt patches in fairways
Have not played here in a number if years because last time everything was dried out and had huge cracks running thru fairways. Although it is better now - the greens and tee boxes were in pretty good shape - the fairways still need a lot of work. Had many areas that were dirt patches. Throw down some soil and seed and get this fixed.
Rrrrough! Such bad shape. 1 star. Way to high of a price. Shameful to charge that amount for such a pile.
Very consistent greens!
This course was really great for the money. Very few golfers when we went on a Sunday. The fairways weren't great, but I'll take that any day over bad greens. These, though not the fastest, were very true! The bunkers could use some work for sure, but I'll take the drop! Great track for $13 on a Sunday!!
its decent for the low low price of $15.
all sand traps are water hazards.
we didnt have problems with our cart, but i saw one person on the course with a dead one.
fairways and greens were in decent shape.
bathroom in the clubhouse smelled like week old urine.
We were double booked
There was a two man group set for the same tee time we had to be squeezed in. The group behind us had a similar issue. For paying a convenience fee and reserving the tee time the day before with the established availability, it wasn’t quite available or convenient. And whoa yo the guy who used the app and books he’ll end up paying a little more than other group members. Not likely to book through golf now again.
Blackhawk is playable
Blackhawk has always had the reputation of being an inferior course due to it's condition. The condition is still an issue but not like it used to be. The fairways are still the worst in Texas but are playable and adds to the difficulty of the course and forget about the horrible bunkers which, if not going to be maintained properly, should just be filled in. The exception to the old views of Blackhawk are their greens. I would put them up today against most of the courses in the area as the best greens in town.
Fun place to hit balls and affordable but if nice fairways are what you desire, BH is not the place for you.
Issue with carts, not enough and majority ran out of power. They need a complete cart overhaul .
This course needs much help.
Was told the course was a good condition. It wasn't! A $10 fee with cart would have been more in line for the condition. As well, the Carts ran out of juice after 9 holes. If you are in a pinch and just need to swing the club for cheap, try to get this one for $15 or less.
Beauty is dependent on the individual.
Blackhawk is my go to for a no frills golf course. Pace of play is amazing here. Fastest I finish a round here was 2 hours and up to 3.5 if I am looking for balls. Course layout is very fun. Greens are solid for the price. Very flexible on tee times.
Now the bad. Carts are a real struggle here. Some might not make a whole round. Fairways are a work in progress.and amenties are lacking. But for 10 dollar ounds thia cpurse is worth a play.
