Affordable round

With Covid all courses are packed. BlackHawk has tee times and course conditions are consistently in decent shape for a solid round. Don’t expect a professional style course for the price, but always friendly staff and good course for the price.

Need to go ahead and close this course

This is the worst excuse for a golf course. I was reluctant to play after so much rain, but I figured if the course is open and they are charging $30+, how bad can it be? I will not return to this course. The fairways are what I would call a pasture. Rocks, bare spots and major pot holes. I would not recommend this course at any price.

conditions are about as bad as they get

Greens are bad and bumpy as heck, sand traps are mud puddles, and fairways don't really exist.

This is a $20/tee time course at most. Will not be playing here again unless prices drop substantially or course conditions improve drastically.

Don't waste your money

I played Blackhawk for the first time in 15 years and it has really fallen into a mess. Layout has changed due to house construction, but not for the better. Conditions on tees, fairways, and greens were awful. All Austin Muni's are in much better shape and much more cost effective. Pace of play was awful as they had zero course management, no starter. Don't waste your money, find another course.

The Worst Course Ever!!!! Please Read

Played the course today & left after 10 holes. The Course is in the worst condition I’ve seen in 20 years. No sand in Bunkers & grass has grown in each one of them. The fairways have holes all over them & the greens have dry spots all over them. The pace of play is the worst. We left at the 10 hole after 3 hrs with a pace of a 6 hr round. DO NOT PLAY HERE even if it’s free. I won’t ever come back. Go down the street to Star Ranch or Forest Creek.

Course in Terrible Shape

This course is in horrific condition!! Bunkers are completely mud filled (although they commented they were converting to grass bunkers), the fairways had little grass, lots of packed mud/dirt. The greens were in terrible shape..was like trying to putt on bad back yard. It was a windy day (but that's no fault of the course), and pace of play was very slow...we actually quit after nine holes. Would not recommend this course at all.

Getting better

Fairways still spotty but greens are getting better . Observed them doing some work on sand traps. Hopefully once we get into the full swing of spring the course will be in better shape

Blackhawk

Course needs some attention greens are all spotty and it may be due to the snow and freeze but very bumpy very little grass in fairways and sand traps are full of weeds and mud. I use to play this course a lot back in the day and it has saddly gone down hill. Staff very friendly and hopefully this course will get back to what it use to be

The course needs some serious TLC

This is my 3rd time at this course over the last several years and the course conditions were equally bad every time. It looks like the course hasn't been maintained at all--- lot of bare spots on the tight fairways and rough; bunkers were rock hard with lots of debris; many of the greens were rock hard.

I don't expect conditions to reflect a private, country club, but I don't want to feel like I'm penalized for hitting on the fairway or worrying about seeing my putt sail by the hole by 10 feet.

I wouldn't come back unless the course sees a major overhaul.

Faded glory

The residents of Blackhawk need to get together and buy out whoever is managing this course. It is in awful shape.
