Blackthorn Course Details

Blackthorn Golf Club, a Dr. Michael Hudzan design, opened to rave reviews in August of 1994. The Irish-Cottage style clubhouse sets upon a rolling naturally contoured heavily wooded 226-acre site. The par 72, 7136-yard layout with four sets of tees offers a strategic test for golfers of all abilities. Broad fairways framed by 94 bunkers, wetlands, ponds, and native prairie grasses lead to subtly contoured and swept-up-tiered bentgrass greens.

Blackthorn Golf Club is a 19 hole layout. The first hole, the Blarney Hole is the ultimate mulligan.  The Blarney Hole is a short par four that plays over a pond to a well-bunkered green. (Take aim at the Blarney Stone for chance at a complimentary logo ball by hitting it with your tee shot.)

The practice facility consists of two acres of bentgrass tees, realistic target greens and a short game area for putting, chipping and bunker play.

The ever-popular Blarney Grill serves an assortment of selections from the Blarney Burger to the Ballybunion Bratwurst that can be washed down with a tasty Four-Horseman Ale brewed by Mishawaka Brewing Company.

The Blackthorn Golf Shop is fully stocked with all of the latest golf apparel and equipment.  From helping you find the correct shirt size to custom fitting you with a new set of irons the golf professional staff will assist you in making the best possible selection.

Blackthorn Golf Club is owned by the city of South Bend and has been managed by Meadowbrook Golf since its inception in 1994.
