Golf course good Tees Fairways Greens good. Bunkers terrible no maintenance! Pro shop staff less than friendly. Outside staff good. Golf priced about right considering the area. Definitely not a must play course in my opinion!

Thank you for the review and feedback. Overall feedback on the conditions of the course have been extremely positive this year so we're sorry to hear you had a negative experience. Also we have followed up with our food and beverage team to make sure that no one has this beverage cart experience. Thank you, let us know if you would be interested in playing again next you're in the area.

My friends and I played Bear Trap 9/21/18 - unfortunately the course was in very poor condition. We played another course nearby the next day and that course was in very good condition. My friends all agreed that we would not be eager to play Bear Trap again.

We rent often (and used to own) at this resort. There are a range of properties available for rent through a realty company or on hosted sites like VRBO. We love the shuttle to the beach, two pools and diversions for kids. The grounds are well maintained and get you away from
