This 9-hole executive length golf course is Black Bear Ridge's best kept secret. Sharing land with the front 9 on the Magee Championship Course, the Academy Short Course features the same large scale nature, framing a smaller scale golf course. All nine par 3s range from 71–137 yards, making the Academy Short Course a great option for everyone—whether you're an experienced player looking to sharpen your short game, a young family in search of an activity for the whole family, or a total beginner intimidated by a full-length layout. Not to mention that it's the perfect venue for an emergency 9 when there's a match to settle.
