Blackhawk Golf Club
It is an old course with many mature trees.
Challenging and fun.

The course was in great shape. We arrived about 30 minutes before our tee time and was able to get out early. The staff was really friendly and overall it was a great day.g

Course was in great shape. Greens rolled true but we're a little slow.

Nice Fairways and Fast Greens - Good Value
At the suggestion of a co-worker, I played Blackhawk for the first time today. When you pull in to the course it looks like most other public courses so nothing special there. There's a nice pro shop and the staff seemed friendly.
What stands out about this course is the quality and speed of the greens. Despite clearly getting a lot of play, the greens hold well, aren't beat up, and they're much faster than expected. The fairways are also in good shape and the rough is kept at a reasonable length for the amateur golfer.
Hole layout is pretty challenging. It's not a long course, but you'll face doglegs to the left and right, as well as some challenging par 3s. I used most of the clubs in my bag.
For around $30 on a weekend, you can't go wrong with this place. I definitely plan to play it again this summer, hopefully when it's not so chilly. The temperature was in the 50s with a pretty stiff breeze.

We're standing on the 10th tee and we are over 3 hrs into the round and we walked off the course. So no , we won't be going back.Slow Play!!!!!###

This is the second time I have played this course and I absolutely love it! My brother brought me out here the first time and I was Wowed! The course is challenging enough to make you play hard but not so unforgiving that you're ready to walk away. I live in Illinois and even the best public course I have played doesn't compare to the outstanding course conditions at the beginning of the season out here! My husband and I look forward to coming back out to play again and next time might bring a few fellow golfers who can appreciate this well maintained and challenging course.

We had a heavy rain for 2-hours with plenty of thunder. The storm passed and I was able to finish, cart path only. It is very early in the season, so the course green keepers haven't had a good chance to fix up the sand traps. Greens were good and they drained quickly. I had a good practice round.
