If you appreciate classic design on land that was naturally destined to become a superb golf course layout, you'll want to play Black Forest again and again. It is one of those rare golf courses you can never tire of playing because it will present you with a different look and challenge every time out.

Black Forest's greens are a marvelous equalizer. The bomber will quickly realize that position on the green with respect to the hole location is more important than brute force. And the player adept at chipping and approach putting will have numerous opportunities to win holes.

OK for the money! The course "Wilderness Valley" was in less than perfect condition.Tee boxes need a lot of work and the greens have some kind of spotty blight on them,, but they still rolled fairly true even though they didn't look very good. Layout was quite dated and not very memorable. Still worth the $20 to play 18 , but I wouldn't pay any more. Sounds like playing the Black Forest is the way to go if you can play it for a good price.

needs help course needs to be fix up. you can tell they have let it go. bunkers are bad fairways have lots of spots same with tee boxes. to many other course in area to playb this again dissappointed September 1, 2014
Awfull Greens If you like greens with all kinds of green gummy fungus this is the place for you. The greens were very bad and bumpy August 30, 2014
Great layout conditioning worse Played this course four times. It is a great track. Challenging, fun, scenery is great, people are really nice. This year the condition is noticeably worse. Greens had bare spots and were inconsistent. Areas around greens were often bare. Traps were poor condiotion. Some needed sand. Looked like not maintained. Tees were a little shaggy. There, like normal, was almost no one else on the course. I am hoping that that lack of customers has not caught up. On other years we marveled at how the course could be in such great shape with no one tjere. May have cught up. Again, great layout. Just conditioning not there today August 28, 2014
Nice track but very challenging. Played the blues, pars were tough to get. Lots of slope. Fairway and greenside bunkers challenge your shot selection. Greens are large and undulating. Cool looking holes though. You are definitely Up North! Could use a little TLC overall. August 25, 2014
Tough Greens Great layout for a golf course deep in the woods cut out of nowhere with the toughnest greens I have ever played. Don't forget your camera! August 19, 2014
Play time Sent us off the back 9 as there was a group of 5 carts lined up on the front nine. Great play and in good time. Friendly folks back at the bar when we finished with good drinks. All in all great time. August 17, 2014
Great Layout, Very Challenging. Fairway problems This was my third time playing Black Forest. One of the hardest courses I've every played, but enjoyable. Great layout. Unfortunately this time the fairways were blemished. Lots of dead spots. Certainly wasn't for a lack of water because the fairways were absolutely soaked. August 11, 2014
