With its titanic 8,000-acre breadth, Lake Blackshear presents opportunities for all types of outdoor fun—a natural source of recreation of which Lake Blackshear Resort & Golf Club takes full advantage. Across the resort's immaculate grounds, guests can hike through the woods or across the shoreline; swim; or rent pontoon, fishing, and ski boats for aquatic sports and exploration. The lake is stocked with bass, bream, crappie, and catfish, and offers hidden coves and shaded areas ripe for fishing.
The lake and its surrounding waterways also help shape one of the resort's main attractions: its 18-hole 7,059-yard golf course. Water hazards come into play on eight different holes, including the signature 15th hole, a par 5 with water all the way down the left side. Those who are able to keep their ball dry will still have to contend with sand traps—60 of them pepper the course—and tall loblolly pines, which hug the Tifway 419 fairways and dwarf bermuda greens throughout the layout.
