Black Bear is set in beautiful Shawnee State Park. However, with may missing tee pads, fairways that look like a bomb had gone off, poorly marked trails (for disc golf) it's a challenge. This COULD be a fun course. If it becomes as manicured and the rest of the park this course could become a classic.

Played nine holes today so stoked to finally get a course in scioto county! This course is fun and will certainly get better when finished.
