Great time

Guys Joanne hooked me up with were great guys! Pleasantly surprised at the shape of the course. Best I have seen in two years! Fairways were exceptionally nicely mowed, greens nice as usual and bunkers all in great shape.

Blackwood’s a buy

Nice track in nice shape. Greens were very healthy but a bit on the soft and slow side. Some of the tees could use some work. Par 70. I thought the White tees’ 68.4/118 could be a bit understated.

Pace of Play

This course is great, but pace of play was horrible. I'm not the best golfers, but the novice golfers in front of me held things up. Had to wait 4-5 minutes too tee off and then pause again for my second. Staff was friendly and accommodating. I just wish I didn't have to play at that kind of pace. Not for me.

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.
