Where2Golf says: 

Black Bear Golf Club: Located in the north-east corner of Louisiana, less than 10 miles from the Poverty Point Historic Park and just north of Delhi (said Del-high rather than Delly) - Black Bear is arguably the surprise package of the Audubon Golf Trail - a little bit off the beaten path, unless you are on the Dallas-Vicksburg-Jackson road, this is a golf course that's well worth making a detour to play - laid out in a natural environment of open countryside and woodland, with no houses or roads nearby to disturb your concentration - the pleasantly undulating terrain, three small lakes, and fabulous fairway and greenside bunkering, creates a course that's full of interest, pleasant scenery and an abundance of golfing challenges - some holes are played in a relatively open rural setting, while others are more tree-lined - with top-quality landscaping and plenty of rolling mounds, especially around the good-sized, subtly sloping greens, each hole is excellently crafted - as good and as varied a collection of testing par-3s as you'll find in Louisiana - choose the course length that suits your game wisely, at 7260 yards from the back tees, this is a black bear that's more than capable of giving your game a bit of a mauling - a great course in a natural setting, and certainly one of the standard-bearers (no pun intended) for the Audubon Golf Trail.

Did you know?

Located within 10 miles of the golf course is Poverty Point, an ancient monument comprising semi-circular mounds that are situated approx 15 miles from the current Mississippi River. These earthworks, built between 1650 and 700 BC during the Archaic period by a group of Native Americans, were possibly a trading post and/or religious centre.| Black Bear Golf Club is a member of Louisiana's Audubon Golf Trail.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
