Not for serious golfers!

This is a great course for beginners. I was stuck behind several groups of very inexperienced golfers with no awareness of others. It was a beautiful day and I was outside, but the golf was very disappointing.

Praying to the golf gods

Lost my wedge on one of the first 4 holes and am hoping someone turns it in for me. It took me the front 9 to try to enjoy the course after realizing my loss.
Greens are awesome right now. Please, everyone, repair your ball marks AND one more. Nice definition between fairways and rough. Not many bare spots to remember. One disappointing thing, par 3 8th hole playing under 90 yards . Bridge to get to tee boxes is closed. Bunkers in shape with sand that was “powdery”.
4 sets of tees, but a BIG difference between white tees (just over 6000) to next set forward (under 5000) Looking forward to returning to play and hopefully getting a call about my wedge. Wish me luck!!!

Green Acres See?

Course was in decent shape, a little long and soft...not much roll from recent weather. Greens were best anywhere...seriously, not sure what they did, but they putted so true as I made 5 putts in excess of 45 feet! A+++ to your greenskeepers. Only gripe was quality of golfers as full of havk heads. I'll be back though just for these greens. I'll take the countryside,,,see?

Can’t beat it at Winter Rates

Thankfully Blackwood went into Winter Rates while other courses haven’t here in November. Course always has beautiful views and challenging holes. Play this at least once a year.

favorably impressed

Greens were smooth and well maintained with no ball marks. Obviously well cared for. Small, elevated greens on classic rolling layout. Nice mix of long and short holes. Many low areas that might get standing water after a rainy day. Well worth a look. I'll be back, for sure.

Go play somewhere else

Won’t be playing here ever again. Staff is unfriendly and incompetent; they think the course is way nicer than it is. Pace of play is awful. Course conditions were bad.

This place sucks

This golf course is horrible and so is the staff. They act like a pro golf course with amateur staff. The pace of play is so bad they yell at golfers for playing correctly. I will never play here again or recommend it to a friend.

Rates

Why would Golfnow allow this course to advertise HotDeal rates $35. which are the same as their normal rates $35.....is this a joke or is it that GolfNow standards are being compromised?

Winter Golf

Course is in great condition considering the time of year and should only improve if Spring weather cooperates. Gold tees are way forward of the White tees if planning a mixed age match.
