Black Lake Golf Club is a UAW owned and operated facility and one of the top golf experiences in the state. Designed by Rees Jones as an environmental-friendly, this course has been certified by the Michigan State Stewardship Program and the Audubon International as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. There is not one artificial mound on the course, as this layout was designed totally from the natural terrain. The conditioning on our visit was immaculate from tee to green.
The practice facilities include a targeted grass range plus short game area with 4 greens for chipping and for practice out of sand bunkers. The clubhouse features a pro shop, beautiful and spacious restaurant/lounge with outdoor patio open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus locker rooms with showers. The Little Course at Black Lake is a 9-hole par three with holes ranging from 33 to 117 yards, playing to a total length of 773 yards.
