The Black Bear's course amenities are everything you would come to expect of a perennial "People's Choice Award Winner".  The 20th Hole Bar & Grill offers a full bar, a delicious quick-service menu, including the best 1/2 pound burger and coldest beer in Northern Michigan (you may think we're kidding ... but we're not). We host all kinds of parties from Class Reunions, to 300 guest weddings, and board meetings.

Being a "stand-alone" golf course has it's benefits. Black Bear's small, loyal staff is our real secret ingredient. Just ask anyone who has met Becky, and had one of our "Best Bloody Marys You'll Ever Have." We will be happy to help arrange lodging in the Gaylord area, or at one of our hotel properties in beautiful Mackinaw City for you or your group.  We have "hot package deals"  for both golf and lodging with all the area courses, hotels and resorts.
