Always Great

Always an amazing course to play. Great playing conditions. Always in great shape. Greens were a little slower than normal due to the rain. Pace of play was a little slow due to folks not understanding allowing faster players through. Otherwise, never a complaint with Black Bear. Will always come back.

Golf course in good condition

Black Bear was in really good condition. The greens were nice and rolling medium speed and true. The fairways were also really good, the rough, bunkers and tee boxes were well cared for. The course is challenging. Approach shots to the greens require precision on most greens to score well. Good course for intermediate to advanced players.

Beautiful Course

I have always heard that black bear was an excellent course to play. First time I played it yesterday and I have to say it is the number one well maintained course in this area that I have played it is well laid out fairly forgiving well priced and the speed of play was excellent for us. I highly recommend anyone that has the opportunity to play around need to do it.

Hidden Gem!

Found this course online. Reviews were favorable and highly rated. Made the hour drive inland from the east coast of Florida to play. Course is in great condition with nice fairways and lush greens that held well struck shots! Greens rolled smoothly. Sand traps were raked and in good shape as well. Carts are newer and in good condition. Staff was pleasant and very helpful. Water is available on the course and a beverage cart roams the course. All in all, had a favorable experience and enjoyed my visit!

Always great

I love the challenge of this course. If the wind isn't blowing anywhere else, it's blowing at Black Bear; that just adds to the challenge. The course is in excellent condition in all aspects.

My Favorite Course

I live in Deltona and I do not mind driving out here to Black Bear. The course is like nothing you would typically experience. The hills are plentiful bring your walking legs. Great practice facilities. A must play! Love this course. Get out here and dare the bear.
