About Black Bear

Black Bear Golf Club offers the best golf in a totally relaxed and soothing atmosphere. Carved through a mixture of hardwoods and pines, Black Bear features 23 crystal clear lakes which gives this course its unmistakable distinction. Renowned architect Tom Jackson designed the par 72 with four sets of tees for every level of play. The course itself will force you to use every club in your bag and the wide fairways instill confidence for the meek and forgiveness for the bold. Black Bear Golf Club is a classic parkland course completely engulfed by nature that offers golfers a relaxing day on the links and a true test of golf.

"Course was CLOSED. And we were unable to book another course. You should have checked that course was open, and if not, booked us somewhere else. TERRIBLE SERVICE from YOU."

"Greens were aerated two days before arrival without any notice to us. We received a two-for-one pass for next time, however, we will not be back anytime soon. The amount of sand on the greens was comparable to a stroll on the beach. This course has taken a significant step back over the last few years and I am sad to say I will never be back here again. The drinking water was luke warm, most holes were missing the ball washers, a few holes were missing the hole # signs with yardage, there was geese poop everywhere, and the overall condition was below poor. They should have given us our money back and told us they were closed because NO ONE should have paid $50/person to golf on that horrible course. We didn't even keep track of the score since every put had a rooster tail of sand... "

"A gorgeous course and fun to play despite having to use cart paths due to previous rain. A LOT of water on course to shoot over and around. Had some help from starter to expel rude golfer who cut in front of us and would have ruined our day. would play there again. "

"It started raining as soon as we got to the 2nd hole. we played trough it all despite the conditions and the staff was very accommodating. "Doc" was a gracious host offering rain checks if we wanted, escorting us back to our car to speed up our departure as we were like drowned rats. The starter brought out warm towels for us during play . despite the rain we played well and found the course challenging will return our next time in MB. "

"This is not a course worth the $69 green fee. The greens are pitiful, the tee boxes need to be ripped out, leveled and reseeded. The fairways are OK. The rough is overgrown with all type of foreign plants and grasses. The staff was very accommodating when they discovered one of their employees had cancelled my tee time. They are doing making every effort to make playing the course a pleasant experience but they are disadvantaged by year's of neglect on what was once a nice course. I will not be playing there again."

"Very deceiving from the road pulling in as from afar it looks like a great place to play golf. Then you tee off and lose your ball in the 3 inch fairway and hit your 2nd shot to the green only to see a cloud of dirt/sand shoot into the sky while your ball rumbles and tumbles thru craters to wherever it stops. Then you think - it can't possibly be this awful for 18 holes - but it is. I understand the prior management let this place go and the new management is trying to reclaim its glory. My only issue is that they should be very upfront that the place is currently a junkyard and should charge no more than $1 per hole in its current condition. By far the worst conditioned golf course I've ever played and I've played some bad ones, but never paid so much for it."

"Extremely disappointed in Black Bear compared to just one year ago. All aspects went downhill fast, NOTHING has been done in one year, place is deteriorating FAST...weeds everywhere, mud and standing water pits...sand covered "greens"...just terrible. Wanted to turn around at second hole and ask for my $ back, but didn't - wish I did! Was so pretty last year, this year - a total dump. "

"The staff were the friendliest that I have experienced in the Grand Strand. Even with all the rains, we could drive on the fairways. The course was an interesting layout with water on every hole. Play your best course management game on this course and you'll leave with a smile."
