Black Lake Conference Center
About Black Lake Conference CenterNot everybody realizes that the Black Lake Conference Center - also known as the Walter and May Reuther UAW Family Education Center owned by the United Auto Workers - is open to the general public. It was built in the 1970s on roughly 1,000 acres of remote, idyllic property in northern Michigan. Accommodations range from 228 rooms in the Lodge to a selection of condos, apartments and camp sites. With a massive auditorium, Black Lake is perfect for conferences, retreats, weddings, family vacations and reunions. Rees Jones added the award-winning Black Lake Golf Club in 2000. Other recreation includes exploring the surrounding forests hiking and biking or fishing in Burt Lake, Mullett Lake or its namesake Black Lake, teeming with walleye, bass and perch.

Great golf course... Some tough pins for a holiday, but the greens were rolling nicely... Lots of punch marks remained from the fall airation, but it's still early in the season.. Absolutely love to tee it up here! Staff is always friendly and professional... Highly recommend this as a must play!
Beautiful but tough course
Some very tight tree lined fairways with well protected greens. Course was tough but was in beautiful shape. Had a great time.
An asset to the golf community in northeast michigan. I hope to see the dining room full again someday.
Black lake golf course
Pace of play was really slow. It was league day so that could have been why. Overall great course
Great woodland course
One of our favorites. We play it every spring on our golf trip. Layout is varied and interesting. Provides a challenge for all level of golfer.
Black Lake Golf Club is best value in all of Michigan!
My home course now since i retired. As good, and mostly better in all ways than two private clubs i belonged to in Southern MI!
Got a good GolfNow deal so took the long drive out to this course. Happy we did! Got paired up with a super nice couple which made round very enjoyable. Course is in excellent shape and layout was beautiful. We didn't have our A game today, but that happens. Putting was challenging Still enjoyed the course and staff was super friendly. Would highly recommend this course.
Great course. Ranger not so much.
Love the course. It’s excellent shape. Our group stopped for a hot dog at the turn and was harassed by the ranger for eating before continuing on to 10. Despite still being 8 minutes ahead of pace (according to the cart) after eating the ranger still threatened to not let us back out on 10. We ignored him and teed off anyway and never saw a group behind us the entire back 9.
I’m all for pace of play but this felt like unnecessary rudeness.
Caught a great price on tee-off. Course was in ok condition. I think we've had a lot of rain here or it's being overwatered. Greens were true but slow. Lots of ball marks. Waited every tee 15-20 minutes. 4.5 hour round. I'd play it again for the rate I received from tee-off.
