Black Rock Golf Club: A view and a challenge by Paul Easton..

Finding the right golf course to consider your home course is often a matter of finding the one closest to your home and playing on it on a regular basis. However, even the worst golfers will bore of playing the same fairway. However, may find they play better when they hit a different course and the Black Rock golf club is such a course.

About Black Rock

With a slope rating of 121 from the white tees and 124 from the blue, the multiple tees at every tee box makes the course challenging and yet fun, for golfers of every skill level.

Each hole

The 18 holes course cuts into the Shenandoah Valley for the front nine. Then through the Appalachian Mountains on the back nine, creating a scenic view. Not many courses can boost a difference in areas to play on.

The fairways

Each fairway is carved into the land and the club offers an amazingly large practice green. They also boast a chipping area and sand trap for more practice before hitting the first tee. Bent grass of each green offers straight putting chances and will grab a lifted ball onto the green and hold it for the first putt.

The first hole, a Par 5 of 465 yards, all the way the white tee of the 18th hole at 386 yards, each hole offers a view of nature.

Water Hazards

Water hazards come into play on four holes, beginning with number four. It may appear easy but any ball that sails over the green will end up on the bottom of a lake.

Hole number 8 has a small lake around the green. This 396 yard par 4 hole and on hole 13, a double dog leg to the right has water on the left side of the front of the green. This is also guarded by three sand traps.

The final hole is a straight run to end the round. The 386 yard par four has water immediately in front of the green. The second shot will need to sail over the water or lay up and use a wedge to place the ball on the green for a good finish. Those who miss this shot may find themselves swimming.

The Black Rock Golf Club is a course not for the faint of heart, it is designed to make the player strive for the best and hopefully stay dry in the process. Not a beginners course as the views may be too much of a distraction.
