We attended a family wedding reception here in September and had a great time. The dance floor and bar was outside under a tent while dinner was served indoors. I can honestly say the food was probably the best of any wedding we had ever been to.

It was a great experience to play in this course. We went there in October, which was off season, and the course was not crowded. All the staff were so friendly. There was a snack shack near the club house. We played the Kodiak and then the Black Bear. Both were in excellent condition. We saw maintenance people in several... More

Our golf group has been coming to the area for 17 years. Bear Trap Dunes is a great course. We were treated great by all at the course. We will most certainly play this course on future visits.

We stayed at the town homes within this resort community for a one week vacation. We booked 3 different tee-times for this course and I never been treated so terribly like I did at this place. We were a foursome including my almost 80 yr old father-in-law and after the first few holes an employee (with a goofy fluorescent green... More

The Den at Bear Trap Dunes has had different management over the years. But now the restaurant has found a home and great food. Located at Bear Trap Dunes Golf Course off Central Avenue in Ocean View, the restaurant has found an excellent new management in Troon Golf. Part of the food and drink service is related to the golf... More

The clubhouse and greens are very good! But that's the extent of my praise for this overrated golf course. We got what seemed like a really good online rate for this $100+ course, so I took advantage of it. I won't be doing that again. At the bag drop, there were 3 gentlemen in their neon green Bear Trap shirts,... More

Was there this past Friday and had a wonderful time. The golf course is exceptional. The greens are well maintained and the course is a scenic gem. The club house is very nice and staff was super friendly. Food in restaurant was also very good. I would recommend if you are a golfer, you should definitely try Bear Trap!

Food was good. Not your ordinary menu. Soup was delicious, but not as hot as it should have been. Service was slow. It seemed to be the kitchen that could not keep up. Waitstaff was very friendly. Would definitely try again.
