Type Semi-Private
The player-friendly Blackstone Golf Course boasts a reputation of being an excellent course for families. The gently undulating landscape is approachable to beginners while still providing a fair amount of challenge. The rolling terrain requires accuracy but most holes allow for short irons if you're willing to risk hitting your ball into the treetops. There is a stream that meanders through the golf course, coming into play on a number of holes. It also crosses through Blackstone's driving range. Strategically placed bunkers are also scattered throughout. The greens are in excellent condition, providing great putting surfaces. Blackstone Golf Course has garnered a local following because of its playability, which is helped by three sets of tees, and extremely reasonable rates. It's an excellent location for a casual round.

Challenging course with lots of elevation

The course is great shape. It’s not an easy course to play as it’s quite hilly and there’s ravines to hit over. Not your typical flat Florida course.

Always a fun course.

With all the courses in Panama City either shut down, beaten up, or way to over crowded the hour long drive Northwest was never a question. Add in the $24 Hot Deal and it becomes an I can't pass this up moment. The elevation changes just an hour North of the gulf are mind boggling. It's always a fun course and it didn't fall short today. Today it actually brought back a small piece of normalcy that's been missing since Hurricane Michael. A good round of Sunday golf with a buddy to cap off the weekend.......

Those were the good days. Never know what you got till it gone.

Forced lay-ups and forced carries!

Played this course with my wife. Pace of play was extremely slow.... we waited on every tee and there was never any flow to the game. Course was in nice shape and over-seeding has taken well. Very hilly course with many forced carries and blind shots. Not very friendly course for my high handicap wife to play. Sadly I would not recommend this course to friends. Very accessible to I-10.

I love the challenging layout

The course was in very good shape, especially the greens. While this course is not extremely challenging, it does require some fairly precise ball placement. Several holes have a fairly tight driving lane while others have forced carries if your tee shot is slightly off the mark. I hope to return and post a slightly better score; although, I played to my handicap.

Great Greens

This course was pretty tough. Pretty tight but fair but the wind was howling which really made this day tough. Loved the greens. Great roll and you could spin it well from approaches. I’d definitely play Blackstone again

This course is challenging

This course challenges all your skills as a golfer.

The greens roll true and fast.

We were surprised how hilly this course is being in Florida.

Great value and close to where we were staying.

Beautiful Course

Played as a single early Sunday morning and had a great experience. Greens were perfect and played in roughly 2 hrs and 10 minutes. Several unique holes and lots of elevation which is a nice change from normal Florida golf. Back tees are not long but do provide a challenge as the course is tight. Would recommend to anyone in the area.

A hidden GEM!

Pros:

Blackstone is a great Course with unique hilly terrain that you don’t normally find in the Florida Panhandle.

Condition of the greens are excellent! And the fairways look better each time we play!

Cons:

Never very welcoming in the Pro Shop!

Never a Welcome to Blackstone!

Never a “Have you played here before”

Never a “Enjoy your day”

Perhaps they don’t understand they are in the Hospitality business?

Great Course

Course was wide open (not busy). Greens were in great shape but were very soft. Even close chips left ball marks on the green, though they are obviously cared for..... Rough was high, so difficult to find balls that strayed from the fairway unless standing directly over top of them. Overall, a great track that's recommended to golfers anywhere close by.

us open rough

the 3 inch rough was so thick a ball could not be seen unless you are standing directly over the ball. this led to a round that took nearly 5 hrs even though we never saw another golfer

Had a fun time even though my buddy finally beat me, first time we have ever seen course maintenance at work during a round and that’s hard to believe as good as shape as the course stays in
