Rating 71.8

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.

North of the Bay.

General this course is in excellent shape, but this weekend it was pretty beat up. Couldn't tell if it was the abundance of rain , overplaying or over seeding and the new grass coming in.

Blackstone Review

Fabulous course. It’s a great golf course.
Greens were very good, but a small dirt patch/mound was on one green.
Fairways were very good. Some were narrow.
The rough wasn’t too deep or thick.
The course looked good. Very green.
Good wildlife on the course. I saw some small animal on the course that looked like a large squirrel and a groundhog. It was very close to me.
The area is a great place to be.
Good smell on the course.
Good sound of wildlife on the course, too.
Not too expensive. Affordable.
Practice putting green was good and large.
Driving range was very long.
Great, kind, helpful, young woman working at the pro shop.
I like that Blackstone allowed me to walk.
Walking the course was strenuous at times. It was not a flat course. Steep slopes by some fairways.
Many trees along fairways. Highly wooded.
Penalties for wayward shots at this course.
The course was difficult, and pace was slow.
I was a single playing behind a threesome. We were all at a tee box on a par 3, but nobody in the group invited me to play through. My round was nearly 4 hours long, which is very long for a single. I had to wait often behind that group.
The course was high-quality, though.

Very scenic and in great shape!

By far in the best shape of courses in the area. Greens rolled beautifully and were not dormant and lacking grass like most other courses in the area. Ground crew doing a wonderful job there.

Beautiful Golf Course

Course reminded me of courses in central Michigan. Lots of elevated tee shots and tree lined fairways. Greens were in great shape and the price was extremely reasonable.

Ups and Downs

Interesting course with lots of hills which is different than most courses in the area....need to think about your shots due to the hills and ravines on some of the holes....challenging but not too difficult...

Opening Round

As this was our first round since last Fall, we didn’t want to pay top dollar to dust off the cob webs. It’s an ok course to do this. Conditions a little rough.
