4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 2006

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.

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

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
