1500 Alexander Rd
Vanderbilt, MI 49795, United States

19 Holes! At Black Bear, you never have to wish you could start over when you get free par 3 “warm–up” "Practice" hole prior to playing number 1. The remaining 18 championship holes are not long in length but offer some of the most diversified golfing terrain in the state. A distinctive assortment of Scottish links style holes with traditional tree-lined Northern Michigan holes will inspire you to mark your calendars for your next golf vacation.

We played this as a replay and before our ten guys paid $35 twilight rate we were told the course was wide open. We waited more than 40 minutes for a cart the course was so packed. What incensed us was the owner was playing in FRONT of us putting two golf bags on a rubbish cart. We walked off at 9 because the ten holes were just under three hours. What are these people thinking? We will NEVER go to this dump again.

The course was in beautiful shape. There are some great views. Getting from the tee to green is pretty easy for the ball but difficult on the cart as you will be bouncing around a lot. I thought the greens were on the side of ridiculous. Pins were put on the edge of tiers and every green had a different speed.

Bring your kidney belt, it's going to be a rough ride. These were the roughest fairways I have ever been on. I don't know what course the reviews listed above were for but it sure wasn't this one. Where do I start, unwatered fairways, tee boxes and greens, overfertilized greens until burnt, a young golf instructor doubling as a ranger who couldn't manage two shotgun start outings. It's a crime they charge over $50 for 18. Sell the course to someone who cares.
