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.

The place is run by elderly militants. We stayed here with our 2 tween kids and the place is one of the worst places we have ever stayed in terms of it being relaxing. Going to the pool it seems requires you to go through a metal detector. It just is not very friendly. Sort of like one of those... More

This was our second trip to Bear Trap Dunes - this time we played the Black Bear and Grizzly courses. As usual, check in was quick and efficient and we were on the course in no time. Excellent condition despite the rain of the last few days. Some spots were a little squishy. Dried out a bit by noon. The... More

This place is expensive and the food mediocre. I had to return an order of fried calamari because it was cold. The food is never good. Won't return. If I pay these high prices I expect great food.

After we played the horrible Bay Club West for $75 the next day we played the Bear Trap Dunes for $20 more. Worth every penny The course was in fabulous shape The conditions, the fairway and the greens were beautifully manicured A great golf experience. By far not an easy course but worth the challenge.

Nice layout and the course was in very good condition, Very challenging. Not recommended for high handicappers. The pace of play was brutal. Rangers were non-existent.

It is a nice layout and with 3 nines -- almost never a back up. Keeps you alert and there is more than enough sand and water to make sure you play within your limits. Not the cheapest place but terribly convenient to Bethany Beach

Went golfing here with a group of 4 and had a great time. They got you out right on your tee time and the staff was friendly. I would golf here again.
