BlackHorse is impressive in both size and stature—there are two 18-hole courses, each of which is plotted around naturally occurring wetlands and mature trees. The back nine of the south course plays through a quarry. Each hole has six tees to accommodate golfers of all skill levels, and the public course includes a full-service restaurant.
Throughout the year, Choice Tee keeps players in tiptop game shape with a fully automated driving range, golf-simulator room, and miniature-golf course. Ceiling fans rotate high above covered tees, keeping players cool as they practice driving balls further than 350 yards. The robotic tees reload after each drive, allowing players to practice without straining their backs. The facility also hosts surreal short-game practice on a 19-hole miniature-golf course. A misting fountain sits at the circuit’s epicenter, and a series of emerald corridors tests players who tap like a bugler at dawn through the labyrinth of faux-grass turf, harnessing their putt-putt prowess as they attempt to read testy breaks, outfox smooth-putting opponents, and curb cases of the yips.
Golf USA tends a nursery of name-brand golf clubs plus a professional staff trained to accommodate swingers with the proper tee-grazing tools. Certified by Zelocity, Ping, and Piretti, Golf USA fitters begin by measuring the height, arm span, and hand length of each golfer to determine necessary shaft and club sizes. They will then analyze swing speed, ball speed, flight path, launch angle, and ball spin to begin shaping each club. Fitters will also monitor the trajectory, power transfer, and club face angle at impact to select clubs that will help improve swings and reduce squirrel casualties.
