Designed by Bechtol Russell Golf of Austin, Texas, with construction by Weitz Golf International, Black Bear Golf Course lies on approximately 300 acres atop the Macon Ridge. The Bogzag and Cypress creeks bisect the property and offer significant wetlands features. The routing of the course generally follows, and then crosses, the creeks and offers passes through the heavily treed creek bottoms. The result is a course with varied topography that weaves from tree lined holes to open holes. The namesake Black Bears are often seen roaming the fairways.
