played on 5/23/12. i was drawn to this course from the website and the positive reviews. i booked a 730 tee time through golf18 network so the price was fantastic. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the proshop and bathroom were beautiful. the practice green was nice and big, I didnt hit the range so i cant advise on that. they did have a little 19th hole tee box where you hit across the water onto a green w/ a couple flags but it was closed. it looked like fun though. They did update the carts w/ a good GPS system. The course itself was a true links style course and unlike any course i played in FL. The fairways were rolling w/ hills and bumps but nothing too extreme. Some holes did play on top of each other but not many. The greens were difficult. They were undulating and some were so narrow you could barely hold them. THE 18TH GREEN WAS RIDICULOUS. It was the only one i really had a problem with the shape. That green combined with the water in front makes it a round killer. They rolled at a great pace. i only noticed 2 greens that were a little burnt out but they bake in the sun all day from the looks of it. Bunkers and fairways were well manicured. I played the tips and it played all of the yardage. Id recommend this course to everyone. bring your A game though.

Plays unlike most Florida courses. Lots of hills and slopes. All of the holes are right on top of each other and are aligned poorly as most golfers tend to slice and most of the holes will have you wondering whose golf ball is in your fairway (Dangerous). Greens are so-so, some do resemble bunkers and some are quite nice. The pro-shop/bar is very nice and offer a nice menu selection. Downside to the food is that they stop serving early. Course needs GPS due to not being able to see most flags off the tee and not many markers are available. The 150 and 200 are set in the ground, not stakes, and are hard to see if you are not standing over one. Course offers some nice challenges, only one dog leg however. Just about every hole runs straight. Good amount of bunkers will come into play for you, water really only comes into play on the 18th. Enjoyable to play atleast once, not sure it is worth a second go unless you live near or in Eustis.

We played the course a just before Christmas. It was in wonderful condition. The greens were fast and the fairways were very lush. We heard that the course is under new ownership...and it shows. The staff appear very pleased with the new owners as they are committed to creating a great golf experience. Its very different than most Florida courses due to the undulating fairways and mounding. We heard from the staff the there will be a number of pro tour events coming to Black Bear in 2011 - the course will be a good test. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is good. Its a casual atmosphere but very much golf focused. Great for visitors and tourists as its relaxing and not snobby at all. It must be one of the best values on the Orlando area.

I played Black Bear with some golf buddies on Jan. 4. The course is in great condition. I would say it must be the best quality for value in most of Orlando. We played a number of branded courses and paid large green fees. Black Bear's conditioning of greens and fairways is equal to any of the bigger names but at half the price. The links course makes it very different than all the other Florida courses we played. This is a real must to play if you want to be challenged. Its a players course. We understand from the Staff that they are hosting a number of smaller pro tour events so its in high demand by some of the best players. Great practice facilities as well.

Played on 4/17/2011. Course was in very good shape. Greens are very good. Some of the Most challenging greens you'll play. Undulating, tiered, varying sizes. Overall great value for the money. $35.00 Sunday A.M. with Big Summer Card. Drove from Tampa, played a double here and down the street at Eagle Dunes. What are great day!!

Twilght rates start at 11:30 and is the best value around the area. It will test all you shots and there isn't a flat lie out there. The have a top notch practice facility and the greens are in great shape, true roll.

This golf course is great. The wildlife is amazing, and there is water on every single hole. Pretty difficult. I would definitely recomment.

Very hilly not many flat lies greens are great fun course
