Blackberry Trail Golf Course

First time playing here. Blackberry has a private GC feel….sand, water, soft greens. It would be great if I knew some local knowledge of the course b/c there was hazards where I couldn’t see hazards. Few of the greens were in repair in areas. Have to put in in the fairway to score low. Definitely have to be smart about club selection b/c there are some holes where you need to use <driver!! Really fun course. Played from the blue tees. #12 has thick rough, scored a dbl bogey because I lost a ball in the rough, which wasn’t far from the thin stuff!!

Course has improved a lot since the last time that I played this course. Most of the greens have improved dramatically except numbers 2 and 7. I also commend the course for continuing to enforce Covid restrictions. It is just not that hard to be considerate of other people.

Fun and challenging

I enjoyed this course. Played it from the tips. Course was well designed and great if you enjoy having to shape shots. Not sure what the deal is with the greens comments. Over all they were great, few dead spots on the edges. My only complaint would be the greens needed to be rolled way to slow, the bunkers need work, and deal with some drainage issues. But overall this course is a deal for the price.

Blackberry is a Nice track.

Staff was helpful. Course in good shape. Some greens a little crunchy but very playable. We will return.

Greens

The greens have quite a few areas where they’ve lost parts of them. Hopefully they’ll be back in good shape soon! It’s still a lot of fun to play.

Terrible Greens

For the money you pay absolutely not worth it. Greens are horrid. Besides small weeds most torn up. Looks like someone lit them on fire. Many large spots measuring from 1 to 3 ft long charred. Only played 9 holes but paid for 18. Some tough tee boxes too. I would avoid for a while

The course was in good shape. Greens were fast, however there was some places on the greens that were being repaired and you had to move your ball to avoid them. I woul play this course again.

My round today was fine.i booked a round in January and when I arrived the course was closed. Blackberry told me Golf Now would have to refund my green fees but I have not been refunded anything yet.
Not sure why ??

Perfect weather
Used cart

Pleasant experience on a beautiful day

It is hard to complain about a round that included sun and 70 deg weather in early Feb.
I enjoyed the layout of the course, nothing quirky. There are a couple of holes that are beasts! I probably should've opted for the white tees as the carts were path only. The fairways were just soft enough to not allow any rollout.
The greens were firm and fast but the fringe was soft and spongy.
