We chose Blackhawk because of the excellent facility, view and family like community.  Our family is in love with the game of golf.  The junior program at Blackhawk is the best in the greater Madison area and a perfect place for our two sons to prosper at the game but also have the guidance and structure reinforced by excellent coaches.  Chef Todd puts the perfect touches on the menu which our family often enjoys.  We are so grateful to be part of private but very welcoming community and we could not imagine being anywhere else.

Deanna and I proudly joined Blackhawk Country Club in 1996, after moving to Madison in 1995.  Mike Schnarr was the superb head pro, and we particularly enjoyed playing couples golf on Tuesday nights and Friday night fish fry with David and Louise Uehling, my now retired boss and colleague.  I learned to play golf and more importantly how to enjoy golf while at Blackhawk, and we have developed lifelong friends here.   Our daughter Sarah joined the junior program as a range rover at the age of 5, and she is now in her last year of Junior PGA; Sarah and I took second in the 9 hole Parent Child this past summer, a highlight for us (see second photo).  Over the years, Blackhawk has only gotten better, particularly under the able leadership of Derek Schnarr.  The golf course, the facilities, the pros, and the camaraderie  have moved forward with the times beautifully.  To us, there is no place better.

We were introduced to the club last summer by our good friends, Jeff Kaiser and Heidi Hinners. After touring the club, we decided to become members right away. Everyone is inviting and inclusive - we want to meet new people and we enjoy the atmosphere. Being able to take our kids to the club and on the course is also a huge plus. Our son, Cameron, is almost 4 and will be a Range Rover this summer. Our daughter, Rowan, is 2 and she will be out there as soon as she is old enough. Golf is a great game to be able to play as a family, and we are excited that this will be our first full year as members.

Whether you love to walk or prefer to ride, Blackhawk is the perfect place to call your golf home. Our challenging 18-hole layout, nestled on the shores of Lake Mendota, offers stunning views. With an easy online tee time reservation system, your next round is only a mouse click away! Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, with a course renovation by A. W. Tillinghast, architect of Winged Foot, Bethpage Black, Baltusrol and Medinah #3 and a participant in the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program, the tradition of Blackhawk begins with you. Dinners are memorable, whether a casual fish fry on Friday evenings or a Sunday brunch. Our staff and members take great pride in our challenging, yet enjoyable golf course. On the golf course and in our clubhouse, friendships and strong camaraderie develop among our members.  We are a membership-led Club and encourage our members to use the Club as an extension of their homes.
