Has that old course European seaside feel

This course has it's challenges. It's well worth the price. It reminded me of some of the courses around the British Isle's. Depending on the days, expect back ups, and ALWAYS expect to be paired up if you are in a two-some or solo..

Excellent course

This was a bit of a drive for us (about 45 minutes) but well worth it. Excellent layout, Scottish style course with blind shots, big undulated greens, lots of hills and traps. The $26 we paid was a steal, hope to do it again.

Well worth the money

Good course conditions. Challenging around the greens. Wide open with no trees. Some of the course set up puts players in danger a little too often.

5 hours and 44 minute round

The course is always fun when the time is right. 44 dollars for almost a 6 hour round was not fun or what we planned on. 6 minute tee times on this course shoulnt be a thing. We waiting on every shot and every tee box we waiting for two groups in front of us. take all the fun out the game when the course just jams as many groups out to make their money in the short Michigan Season. I get business and i get making money but i wont be back for a while now that was just a joke. The ranger also told us to slow down and maybe that would help. from my skycady timing everything from waiting at 17 to tee off to waiting at 18 and teeing off took 41 minutes. This is a problem. thanks for the longest round i have ever played!

Good course for the money

Pace of play was very slow for a course that was not too busy the day I was golfing. We had a group of 7 on one hole in front of us and there was no attempt from the course to split them. Other than that great course

Great Value

Blackheath is a very enjoyable track. It is challenging but playable. Staff is very friendly and you can always get a great deal, even on the weekend through Golf Now. It is one of our go to courses in the area.

For drinkers not golfers

Absolutely horrid course management, over booked tee times, ranger is always around but never pushes slow groups or suggests they let smaller groups play through and when you do try to play through, the slower group gets combative like they've never been on a golf course before.

Quit after 14 holes over 4.5 hours, with front 9 being just over 2. Very easily could have been a 6 6.5 hour round for a 3 some that played ready golf.

I give this course a shot every year and every year it's the same thing. Not somewhere to play if you actually want to golf.

Playing Blackheath

Course in very good shape. People were each and all very positive and pleasant. Pace of play was good until we got behind a foursome who slowed the pace significantly.
I’ve played this course many times and the condition and layout is good at a good price
Just need to keep working on pace of play
I will definitely play again.

Blackheath for the win.

Played 10-18 first and as a two some. 1:45
Joined another couple for 1,-9 after waiting 10 minutes at our Turn, 2 :00 for that nine.

The course was in nice condition, the 10-20 mph breeze kept it interesting.
