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.

Very well maintained
This is one of my most favorite courses. Challenging but fair and always in great shape.
The coursed is in great shape and offered a great golfing experience.
Will play again.
Rate it right up there with Elk Ridge , Black Lake is my new favorite, will play again soon.
You feel like you are the only group on the course. Very long ride to some of the holes. Definitely cannot walk this one.
The only bad experience we had on our day at the course was my husbands conversation with the new manager. He asked my husband if he had played here before. My husband answered that we have been playing here every year since it opened. He said well I have been too in a very abrasive tone. My husband was not expecting this type of really unfriendly response. The wait staff was very friendly. We had lunch before our round. And a drink after our round and the service was very good. The food is good and the club house is beautiful. You will not be disappointed with the course challenging and fair.. Just don't talk to the big union manager guy.
Excellent course with some challenging holes. I would go back in a heart beat to play again.
Jewel of the North
This course was absolutely beautiful. The grounds were in outstanding shape despite having over 4 inches of rain the previous week (two days previously we played a course a few miles away that cost more and was water logged). I was amazed that we did not see more people on the course on Memorial Day. We had a 8:40 AM tee time and were the 2nd group out on the course. The only reason it took 4 hours to complete our round was that we spent a lot of time in the woods looking for my partner's errant shots.
