The player-friendly Blackstone Golf Course boasts a reputation of being an excellent course for families. The gently undulating landscape is approachable to beginners while still providing a fair amount of challenge. The rolling terrain requires accuracy but most holes allow for short irons if you're willing to risk hitting your ball into the treetops. There is a stream that meanders through the golf course, coming into play on a number of holes. It also crosses through Blackstone's driving range. Strategically placed bunkers are also scattered throughout. The greens are in excellent condition, providing great putting surfaces. Blackstone Golf Course has garnered a local following because of its playability, which is helped by three sets of tees, and extremely reasonable rates. It's an excellent location for a casual round.

Blackstone Feb 023

Course is not in the best shape (fairways) but remember this is Feb not June. Greens are slow but hold very well. Most of the holes are very challenging and enjoy playing this course for this reason. Price was excellent thru Golf Now and even without golf now pricing is not bad. The only negative is the location.

Nice layout - narrow fairways

This course has a little bit of everything. That gnarly creek that runs through several holes made me really think about my next shot. On one par 4 I hit a 5 iron off the tee to lay up from the creek. On one par 5 I hit a short iron on my second shot because of the creek. This was a fun course. I’m guessing that the fairways are a little better in the Summer time. Narrow fairways - bring a few extra balls. Clubhouse was closed when we were finished at 4:45PM. Had to go down to Loves to use the restroom.

Average at Best

Very rough, uneven course. Many bare spots. Greens have a lot of grain. Uneven tee boxes. Took almost 5 hours to play 18 holes. Our group waited on every hole. Many times there were three groups playing the same hole. No ranger in sight!
