This is a hilly course with a few too many cart path only holes. We played after rain event so the whole course was cart path only. Due to that and poor staff management of pace of play it took us almost 6 hours to complete the round. Too many blind shots. Many bunkers in poor condition.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Average course for the area

Black Bear is a neat course, but it doesn't play as well as the other crystal springs courses in New Jersey. The course is challenging and fun but does not stand out from the many other courses in NJ. I think it is also priced high compared to other similar courses.
