The newest of all of the golf courses in the CPD Golf portfolio, the history of Robert Black is quite possibly the most interesting!

  Once a private club in 1896, at a location two miles to the east along the shores of Lake Michigan, Robert Black was once the exclusive private five hole golf course named Edgewater Golf Club.  In 1910, the golf course moved to its current location.  In the 1970’s, the park was redeveloped into split open parkland and the nine hole golf course that is in place today.  

Elevated tee boxes, greens, and tucked in sand traps all make for a challenging and fun golf experience.  Robert Black offers four par 3’s for those who enjoy the challenge of shorter golf holes.

Sand traps are mostly dirt and rock. Grass is well kept and okay quality. Service is good. Good range of hole types. Good pace is kept, very lax course, good for beginners and chill players.

Nice little course. Sand in the bunker can be improved. Overall good experience, nice greens, etc.

Decent course but not long except 1st and 9th, allow 3 hrs on weekends and a bit overpriced, go check out ezlinks and book online to save $ used to be a country club and greens have a nice slope to them but course could be maintained better.

An OK track. Don't tee off after 10 least you want to play a 4 hour round. And you can keep the driver in the bag the entire time.

too many par 3s... sand traps are not very sandy... however, great staff, great getaway course

Not a fancy course, but inexpensive and usually plays fairly quick. A little more par-3s than typical; so, it's a good test of the short game.
