Black Hawk Country Club
The club was founded in 1999, built on land that was formerly part of a pecan orchard. The core golf course was designed by Rees Jones and has no homes lining the fairways, which is unheard of for courses designed in the last fifty years. The course provides a pure golf experience complete with available caddies.
Rees Jones is known as the “Open Doctor,” as he has renovated several courses that hosted USGA Open championships. Rees took advantage of the natural terrain and designed a course that challenges players of all levels. This is evidenced by the fact that the club hosted the 2009 LPGA Tour Championship, the 2006 Nationwide Tour Championship, and the USGA Mid-Amateur in 2011.
The club’s practice complex includes a one acre short game area, a teaching academy with indoor bays and lesson programs for men, women and juniors. The club’s teaching staff have taught many players who now play on the men’s and women’s professional tours.
The club is amenity-rich with a 28,000 square foot clubhouse with multiple dining venues, a resort style pool complete with slide, and a heated lap pool and hot tub surrounded by the Oasis Bar and Grill. lighted tennis courts, a childcare facility, a fitness center and full-service spa complete the club’s amenities.
