Great short course
If you're looking for an easier but well-manicured 9-hole course, Blackhawk is a great choice. A par 34 with three par 3's, five par 4's under 400 yards, and one dog-leg par 5, this course is fun for beginners and scratch players.
The clubhouse is very small, but still has a decent selection of beers for your round. Although it may not be sanctioned, there is an off-course bar and grill just off the 5th tee box where you can refill if you want the group behind you to play through.
There are two practice putting greens, and across the street there is a large area for free BYO-balls driving range and chipping green.
You're probably not going to lose many balls here as long as you can hit an ok drive, as hitting over the creek isn't hard on 2 & 6. 6 & 8 may collect your ball, however, if you have a bad slice, and 9 gives you an opportunity to hit over the creek on your 2nd or 3rd shot.
Blackhawk golf course
Nice well kept course with scoring friendly greens
Worth every penny
Was extremely impressed with every aspect of the course condition -----great bang for the buck!
Nice golf course
Would have been nice if they had more portable bathrooms. Only one on hole 6. Otherwise nice course.
Most greens pose a challenge with almost no straight in putts.
This course is relatively short and accommodates mostly locals, seniors, ladies and children. It is always well maintained. There is sufficient drinking water during the hot months of summer. However, there is only one port-a=potty located near hole number 7. During the months of May thru Aug, morning leagues fill most of the tee times. However, afternoon and weekend tee times are almost always available.
9 hole.....great staff
Good value! A fwpew challenging holes. Easy to walk
Good deal for the price, got a great deal through Golf now on Labor Day.
We have played this course several times and it's always a lot of fun and in great condition.
Nice course to play for beginners and to work on your short game.
Wednesday night = league night and H.S. golf team
Blackhawk is our favorite local course because of the great price for a quality course. However, we chose the wrong night to play. There was both a league and a H.S. golf team on the course that day, slowing things for us. Thankfully a few groups allowed us to play through so it wasn't terrible. Great course for a spur-of-the-moment tee time.
Nice simple course
Liked the course. 9 hole simple course good for getting out and playing a quick round of golf. The person at the desk was really friendly. Just had a good time.
