Brief history of Blackhawk Country Club: In the early 1900’s the lush rolling foothill expanse of Mt. Diablo became known as Blackhawk Ranch, where prized thoroughbreds graced the land for decades. Years later, this natural splendor inspired a vision of luxury living, and in 1979, a new Blackhawk was born. Today, as you enter the peaceful world of Blackhawk, you will drive past lush landscaping and luxurious homes to two magnificent golf courses and clubhouses: the Lakeside and the Falls, surrounded by acres of stunning open space. Sprawled out throughout the neighborhood of Blackhawk, we also offer 2 tennis facilities, totaling 18 tennis courts and 6 pickleball courts, a 10-lane competition swimming pool, and the only standalone fitness center in the area.
