“The holes were here, we just had to find them,” Rees Jones said. “We strive for holes blending with the natural terrain. There is nothing artificial or contrived at Black Lake. We were trying to build an old-style, course,” Jones said, the course architect. “You’ll notice we don’t have mounds or moguls. We just have sweeps and natural grades.” The condition of the course is immaculate making your round more enjoyable. Complementing the championship course is The Little Course, a nine-hole par 3 meant to introduce young people to the game as well as sharpen veteran players’ short games. In addition, Black Lake also presents an unrivaled practice area with a 350-yard double sided bentgrass tee range, four practice bunkers and four chipping and putting greens. The course features 7,028 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. The course rating is 74.4 and it has a slope rating of 138 on Bent grass. The Black Lake golf course opened in 1999. Nick Aune manages the course as the General Manager.
