The Black Course

 

slide_hole1_2The Black Course meanders over wooded ground that features striking elevation changes. This nine includes the highest elevations in Lake County, offering breathtaking panoramic vistas at every turn. Towering oaks and hickories line the fairways offering the stiffest test of golf. The greens are quick and true, with narrow approaches and subtle swales that challenge the best of golfer.

*Signature Hole: At 542 yards, the Par 5 Ninth Hole on Black offers a superlative risk/reward experience, A challenging dogleg left begins with a tee shot surrounded by a shoot of majestic oaks and pines. A well placed 275 yard drive into this sloping fairway presents the player with a decision to either lay-up or go for the green in two. The player’s choice to lay-up offers a 100 yard shot flanked by severely sloping shoreline to the left of the green and a deep pot bunker to the right of the green. A narrow, deep, two tiered green provides a stern test for all approach shots.
