Great Vistas

Black Mountain Golf Course was fun to play with many challenging holes and great vistas of the Black Mountain Range. However, pace of play was extremely slow for the first nine played in just under three hours. It did pick up on the back, as slow gofers only played nine holes. Pro shop was nothing to talk about and the staff was not friendly.

I would go back as the vistas was great and we love playing golf n the Carolina mountains.

Great course. Beautiful views!

BMGC was challenging and fun to play! The greens were coated in some sort of fertilizer and that was my only complaint. The course is in great shape! The views are incredible!

Great Bones, Terrible Condition

The front 9 designed by Donald Ross are a great collection of holes that weave around themselves in typical Ross fashion. Love the green complexes and approaches into the greens from the fairways. The back 9 has great mountain views and an enjoyable layout.

It is hard to look past the torn up fairways, excessive top dressing on the greens (at least .5 inch of sand in places), making putting useless. Most punched/top dresses greens can still be putted on, however these were so thickly top dressed that it felt like wet snow on every green.

Pro shop is nearly empty, no driving range, and old carts. So much potential for a gem of a mountain course.

Great layout that we hit the day after the greens were sanded! Fun place to play with really good pace of play even though it was relatively crowded. I will definitely be back

Fun Course

Course was fun to play. Narrow fairways, blind shots and sloped fairways. Greens were in very good condition, however, many of the tee boxes could use some work. The par 6 #17 is a great hole, big fun. I would play this again and it is well worth the price.

Inexpensive Golf

Biggest thing going for this course is view’s off the Mountains and inexpensive price.
Greens is good shape and putted well. Front nine fairways not good but back nine better condition. Carts had tape holding seats together and generally very dirty.
Staff very friendly.
