Overview

Bear Creek Golf Complex is a 36-hole inland links golf facility consisting of both a long and short course. The Bear Championship Course stretches to 6,825 yards from the back tees and plays to a par 71, The Cub Executive Course is a fun, sporty par 59, 3,501-yard course. Bear Creek is a unique and exciting place, and we strive to encourage the development of golfers of all ages and abilities. In addition to our two golf courses we also have a full Practice and Learning Center, staffed by PGA Professionals who are available for both individual and group lessons. Both golf courses and practice area were created by the Nicklaus Design Group and architect Bill O'Leary, and opened for play in January 2000.

This used to be my favourite course for value and fun. But the course is totally mismanaged . Greens are dried out and they upped their prices ..go figure. They also charge for walking . Look for another place to enjoy your golf.

The course is in poor condition, the 18th green had a very large, and deep patch of sand on the front of it (so much so that you could leave footprints in it). The rest of the course was bone dry and looked like it...More

Very easy course we played the cub course. The course is wide open so you never lose a ball. The price was cheap. However course needs water badly
