Like many areas around the country, golf is an extremely popular activity for many Beaver County residents. One of the most popular courses, particularly for those who play often, is Blackhawk Golf Course. In addition to being well maintained and reasonably priced, Blackhawk is also the only golf course in Beaver County that contains four different nine-hole courses.
Each of the courses at Blackhawk Golf Course are considered to be moderately difficult. They aren’t overly intimidating to novice players, but still offer a significant challenge for more seasoned golfers.
One of the reasons for this is that none of the holes are exceptionally long. You do not need to hit monster tee shots in order to play well here, but each of the courses will demand that those tee shots be accurate.
Blackhawk Golf Course is also known for having greens that are a little bit smaller than the average course. These smaller greens make an accurate short game an absolute requirement to play successfully here.
The longest hole on the course is the par 5 that leads off the 4th nine at 605 yards from the back tees. On the short side, the par 3 second hole on the first nine is only 155 yards from the back tees.
