Played the King & Bear 2-days while on vacation with my wife, what a great golf course. The layout is great, fairways are generously wide and do not require you to hit the ball on a string..... The sand traps can be very brutal, as many have very steep lips and will test your sand skills, overall course condition was... More

Beautifully, smart planed golf course. It is interesting to play, not very challenging even for short hitters. But very interesting to play, halls are different, quality of field is very good. Restaurant in clubhouse do not have coffee machine. But this is the only shortage. As a guest I have paid 95 $ and it was very good value.

Nice facilities and driving range. Even from the women's tees the course plays long. It is a bit tight, and there is a fair amount of water, so it's not the easiest course, but it was very fun. Course in great condition. They are doing some bunker repair in the coming months, so it might be worth a call to... More

Played King and Bear and the course was clean, well kept and spot on for an 18 hole course. The staff is very friendly and helpful! Highly recommended.

Checked in and found the rate quoted of $129 was reduced to $87. Arnie's age at his passing earlier. Appreciated, but unexpected. Condition of the course from tee to greens was great. Had a problem on a number of occasions reading the greens. Also much faster than greens I am accustomed to. Only problem was that the fairways were somewhat... More

You can definitely see the influence of both Jack and Arnie. Weather was a little gloomy, but the course was in great shape, and the staff was extremely helpful.

Had a great afternoon. We played at our own pace and didn't see anyone the entire time. The course was beautiful and we had a memorable experience.

Inconsistent pricing for this course was quite frustrating and not very transparent. It would be nice if they informed golfers that their greens, especially on the front nine, were heavily topdressed with sand. I found the setting and the layout of the holes to be interesting and challenging. The starter was awesome the day I played. He was the most... More
