Where2Golf says: 

Black Bear Golf Club: Located to the north and east of Eustis, less than an hours' drive from the centre of Orlando, Black Bear is a big, expansive, gently rolling golf course - laid out in an open, almost treeless environment, creates a linksy feel to the layout - although part of a residential development, the housing is not at all intrusive and always set well back from the holes - there is very little water to worry about, but it does seriously threaten at the closing par-4 18th, flanking the leftside of the fairway and protecting the front and rightside of the green - there are some huge greens to contend with; measuring more than 50 yards from front to back at the 1st, 11th, 13th and 18th holes - the quiet environment of this former orange plantation is home to many nicely undulating, open fairways, flanked by TPC-style, smooth, rolling earthmounds - a great course for big-hitters who will be encouraged by the generally good-width fairways and not overly penal rough - plenty of large, expansive bunkering, adds to the challenges and excellent quality feel of Black Bear.

Did you know?

This area of central Florida is still home to the shy and secretive Florida black bear, hence the golf course's name. Very occasionally a bear has been seen taking an early morning stroll along the fairways.

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.
