Bernolákovo is the first course in Slovakia which was created after 1990. At the beginning it was a nine-hole course and nowadays it is a golf area with master eighteen holes. The course is situated near the capital of Slovakia – Bratislava in the distance of five kilometres. The beginning of the modern history of golf in Slovakia connected with this place is dated back to 1993. At first an amateurish meadow was created. Golf struck its roots in Slovakia and it has been developing.
A master course with eighteen holes called Black River is, thanks to its rating, one of the most demanding courses in Europe. Its rating is 79.5 for the Czech Republic and 155 for Slovakia, the length from white tees is 6,483 metres. Par of the course is 73. Also its handicap proves its demandingness. For yellow tees the bonus for men is from four to seventeen extra hits, women have five to seventeen extra hits.
First six holes are a part of the original course called Park and they are situated in a park of a baroque mansion, the others are situated behind river Čierná voda. This is where the English name of the course comes from. The longest but not the most difficult hole is Nr. 9 of 551, or more precisely 465 metres. The most difficult hole is Nr. 12 which has a double dogleg. There are large bunkers in the first break making placing the ball to a good position for next hit difficult, in the second one there is a water hazard leading to green. It is difficult to choose the most interesting holes because each of them, in this course, has all attributes which a course can offer to golfers. The play itself is not a battle between golfers but between a golfer and the course.
The course is used by the Bratislava – Bernolákovo G&CC.
