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.

Mixed

Front nine was not good. Poor fairways, etc. Lots of weeds. Perhaps lack of rain has affected the ability to maintain the course. Back nine was much better. Greens were quick but spotty. Again the lack of rain may be affecting their normal growth.

In its current condition cannot recommend the course.

Fairwayneed help

The holes with the steepest fairways were in the worst shape…probably difficult to maintain. Greens are some of the best around. Dry conditions are making it tough. A good rain would improve things tremendously.

Great course!

Have played here several times. I like the course. Scenic, challenging and the greens were sweet. They have got some new riding carts that have built-in GPS. (Sweet!)

The staff are courteous. The grounds are kept in good condition. Rolling hills and nature scenery.

Love playing here!

Good shape but

The course is in pretty good shape but the tee boxes could use some work and there is some areas that have some washed out out spots. The greens are good.

frustratingly slow

golf course was in good condition but has no marshals. this resulted in a very slow pace of play. also there was a sixsome playing which should never be allowed. we stopped playing after 17 holes due to time. took 4.5 hours to play 17 holes.

Good course. Tight Fairways. Driver better be on point or you’ll lose some balls out there. Greens rolled true. And, best of all, the pace of play was great. Plays similar to the Falcon course at Eglin with the hills.
