Worth it one time

Decent shape municipal. Greens are mostly great but fairways are lacking in many spots. Every shot is side hill lie. What makes this course worth playing are the mountain views. It's worth it once, but not twice.

WARNING: OVER-BOOKED

This golf course has gone from phenomenal to pitiful in the course of two short years. The staff is clearly not putting much money or effort into the condition of the course anymore. Tee boxes are mostly bare, fairways are consistently 2+ inches tall, and the greens are mediocre at best. Do NOT play this course within a month of aeration as it always takes forever for the greens to recover. The course is also significantly over-booked during the golfing season. Be prepared for 6+ hour rounds if you play any time before 3PM. Advanced players should definitely avoid this course.

Fun course

I always enjoy playing this course.
The pro is a super nice guy, and I've yet to be paired with
someone who wasn't an awesome person!
They keep the course in good shape, and seldom are cart path only.
I think you would enjoy this one.
Btw, the par 6 is a birdie hole!

OK course for the price

We played this course based on the good reviews and the proximity to Asheville. For the price, I can't complain too much but would not play this course again. The greens were in great shape and had a moderate amount of difficulty. The tee boxes were in mostly terrible shape and the fairways average. It was a mix around the greens, you could easily be trying to chip from dirt or crab grass, rarely was there a good lie close to the green. We played a Thursday morning and there were a lot of walkers on the course ahead of us, pace of play was described as 4 hours for 18 but it took us 5 1/2.

Fun Course

Main complaint was the way overbooked tee times, as they placed them 7 minutes apart on a holiday, which caused MAJOR waiting between shots almost the entire round. Fun course, though. Has it's challenging holes, but very playable for all skill levels.

Great views and a great course

This is a great course if you are in this area with great views. Some of the greens were damaged but overall it's a great course with challenging holes and the famous 747 yard 17th hole. I will be back to play here

Very nice course

I played this course about 35 years ago and still remembered the par 6. Was in town for other reasons and booked a time to play with my dad who is in his 80's. We were early for a 9:50 tee time and the starter sent us out on the back since it was open. Thus we were able to play at a great pace. Course is fairly straightforward but in a nice way. Holes offer a decent challenge with a few narrow fairways. Fairways and greens were in good condition. It's a little hilly but not nearly as bad as many courses in the mountains. Wasn't too wet despite tons of rain in recent days. My only issue is that they don't have a driving range to warm up on, so it was a little rough going on the first tee. I will definitely play it again, though.

Fun course. Way to slow.

The course is very fun layout and greens were in great shape. Only complaint is way overbooked and with way to many 4somes walking. I don't mind waiting but it was extremely long wait on every shot.

Mountain course

First time play...A good test of my golf skills. Club selection is very important! Since this was my first time to play this course I didn't know which club to use. Up/down the whole time. It really tested my ability. Very pretty vistas set in beautiful surroundings..creeks, ponds, blind shots to green, but the up/ down factor was the most difficult to gauge. It was very hot the day I played so the back 9 was more of a challenge for me, because I was tired. You'll enjoy playing this course...go ahead book your reservation now!

Good value for the price of the green fees.

Black Mountain GC is a typical mountain coarse with uneven lies and elevation changes. The grass was in good shape. Overall a decent public coarse.

A Good Variety of holes & good greens

Black Mountain has that neighborhood feel to it. Good local golf at an affordable price. Course offers a variety of holes, but no severe hills to navigate up or down. The mountains surround you, & the consistent fairways & good greens, make for an enjoyable round. Course is usually available for a modest fee, which is more than fair. I'll be back. it's a good test.

Fun Day Golfing

Played at Black Mountain for the second day in a row. The course was in great shape but is beginning to get dry, not much rain lately. Greens held very well but are kinda slow so they don't break as much as one might expect. Wife and I paired up with a young couple, had a lot of fun. Turns out the young man was from my home town. Great day golfing - but then - any day golfing is a great day.

Fun course, good condition, great time!

Had a great time playing Black Mountain. Really didn't know what to expect, but the greens were in great shape and the course is quirky and fun. It's fairly easy as far as mountain courses go. I had never seen it before and shot a stress-free 79 as a 10 handicap. It has a couple of strange holes -- the par 6 17th and #18 where you hit your approach over a road leading back to the clubhouse. It added to my enjoyment, actually, it was entertaining and all-around a good time. Greens were difficult to read for me, but not my playing partner.
Recommended for a fun day of good views and interesting holes.

a nice muni course

Staff was very friendly and professional. Course was full, but pace of play was consistent so no problem. Numerous members struck up conversation with our group, very nice. Never been around that many friendly golfers EVER. Greens were good condition, but lots of unrepaired ball marks. will play there again. Only negative was course yardage markers were hard to find.

Very well maintained. Good greens and well kept overall.

A very playable course if you select the appropriate tees. We were all senior players and found the senior length very enjoyable. Greens hold shots very well and are in very good condition. Fairways and tees are also well maintained. Good food and an overall good value. The views of the mountains are spectacular this time of year.

Nice course!

Had a great time playing this course. Not too long (except for the 693 par 6!). tricky though; lots of twists and turns.
