COURSE POLICIES

CART FEES
The single rider fee was implemented because of the Covid-19 pandemic.  Since late in 2020 we have been able to ride 2 players to a cart.  If a player needs to ride alone, they may do so at an additional $25 fee if it requires an additional cart.  Spectators (for Jr. and school matches) will be $20 for 9 holes and $27 for 18 holes. Our hope is not to collect additional fees, but to have fewer carts going out which means less wear and tear on the carts and the course. Thank you for your cooperation.

JR. RATES (FOR JRS. 16 AND YOUNGER)

Junior golfers (16 yrs. old and Under) Monday – Thursday anytime $15/round

Junior golfers (16 yrs. old and Under) Friday, Saturday & Sunday after 1:00pm $15/round (standard rack rate applies before 1:00pm)

1 Free Jr. Golf round ($15 value) per paying adult after 1pm everyday.

STANDARD CART USAGE

All Greens fees include the use of a shared cart. Excessive cart usage over the last year and a half and created extra wear and tear of the golf course & golf carts. For this reason two players per cart will be required.

ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES

Alcohol that was not purchased at Black Bear Golf Club is not allowed to be brought onto the course property. We offer a wide range of beverages for sale in our restaurant and on the beverage cart that can be purchased to bring out on the course during play.
