The golf course itself is fantastic. It's beautiful and wonderfully maintained. It's as nice as they come. It has the feel of a classic country club course. The layout is not overly fancy with a lot of tricky features like you might see at a...More

We thought the course was wonderful and would like to return for play and stay. Greens were receptive and held most approach shots. Also played "Little Course" and had fun. The restaurant and bar staff were nice with good service. Well worth the trip.

This was our first trip to Black Lake Golf Club. The course is very beautiful, just like many other Northern Michigan courses. Like another reviewer, our group found that the fairways and greens were over watered. Greens were very slow. The pace of play was...More

This course is absolutely gorgeous. With tree lined fairways, there is no shortage of natural beauty. We even saw a fawn meandering in the trees on one of the holes. This is a challenging course though--a beast not for beginners. That being said, I had...More
