The Bear Golf Course

The Bear Golf Course

A signature design of golf great Jack Nicklaus, The Bear is our best-known course and described by Golf Digest as one of America's toughest. You'll quickly appreciate this beautiful par 72, links-style course featuring Scottish terraced fairways, tiered greens, deep grassy roughs, moguls, mounds, and deep pot bunkers. Lakes, ponds, hardwood forests, streams, and fruit orchards are home to a variety of wildlife. The course is a certified member of the Turfgrass Environmental Stewardship Program.
