Phenomenal Golf - Incredible Staff
Aug 2019
Daughter played this course on August 31 and I joined as caddy/spectator. Incredible property in fantastic condition. Greens were in great shape and fairways were outstanding. Staff were among the most courteous and welcoming I’ve experienced in a long time. If you’re anywhere near this property and you enjoy golf then this is a MUST PLAY Venue!

Beautiful course
Aug 2019 • Couples
Ww found this course to be diligently challenging, but enjoyable. For a beginner like me, i enjoyed the pristine seclusion without having to stress about any nearby structures. Shank one out of the faraway on this course, and all you hear is the sound of limbs breaking. Will definitely make the trip again!!

Though the bear defeated us, this is a fair, challenging course in excellent shape. Staff accommodating & helpful.
Worth the 40 minute drive off I-10.

The Grand Bear is Grand !
May 2019 • Friends
Made a late afternoon drive from the Beau Rivage to the Grand Bear and was met by an extremely courteous young man out front who gave us the lay of the land and welcomed us in. The Pro shop was equally friendly and the kitchen team although just closed opened back up to make us sandwiches (delicious!). We played 18 holes in less than three hours. The course had recently been aerated but was still in great condition. The design is Jack Nicklaus lite and I say that with happiness. It is a Golden Bear lay out but with perhaps sanded edges. A little more friendly to the 12 handicapper but with all the trimmings of the greatest course designer in history. We had a great time. Although the drive from Beau Rivage is 30 minutes the last 10 is through the nature preserve on a winding road where we saw deer, wild turkeys and rabbits. The thought of returning makes me smile. Life is short. Go to places like The Grand Bear and rejoice in all that sweet Mother Earth has to offer.

Birthday Getaway

Wow. Just wow. These guys really know how it's done. We were welcomed so graciously by all staff. We have never played this course, but they made us feel right at home. Don't let the less expensive greens fees steer you away. We've payed double (sometimes triple) in fabulous Myrtle Beach and this place puts them all to shame. Theresa, the bar tender/club house server was an absolute delight. Doyle, the starter, was exceptionally welcoming and offered wonderful conversation and jokes. The course itself was absolutely beautiful!!! It's nestled in some sort of forest reserve, but trust me, the drive (about 35 min from Biloxi) is absolutely worth it. If you ever stay in Biloxi and are looking for a wonderful course, this is the place to go. (They also offer military discount which allowed my husband and myself to play 18 for $100) Can't say enough wonderful things about this place. Check it out, you won't regret it! Oh, and the food was surprisingly delicious! (We are pretty picky cooks ourselves) I got the Roast Beef Poboy and the hubby got the Grand Bear Club...yummm.

Beautiful but soggy course
Nov 2018 • Couples
This off-the-beaten-path course was worth the winding trip to get there. It’s located next to a national forest, so you can just imagine the scenery. The owners have invested a lot to bring the property to higher standards (per the gentleman at the pro shop) and it shows. However, we were there on the heels of a very rainy fall and the course was very soggy. The conditions dictated cart path only, so we did a lot of walking. We would love to return when the conditions are drier.

Thank you for visiting Grand Bear last week. We appreciate your patience and understanding of the cart path only restriction due to the wet conditions. And yes, it is unfortunate the weather didn't cooperate and you couldn't experience the new Grand Bear at its finest. Perhaps next time. In the interim, if we can assist with anything please don't hesitate. Hope to see you soon.

Yearly golf trip
Oct 2018 • Friends
Group of buddies play here every year. For the last couple of years we have decided to play this course twice during week of golf. This is a championship course at its finest. Beautiful layout. Great greens. Driving range and putting green are right there by the clubhouse. The staff is super attentive. We were there during the off season, so I don't think they were fully staffed like they are in season but no complaints. Theresa was great as always at the bar.

Service was great! Much more than what is expected for $79 green fee. Bailey set the tone when I arrived from handling clubs, taking me to the pro shop and making sure I was satisfied with everything before I started my round. Heidi was pleasant, helpful and accommodating for a quick lunch and drinks after. Melvin topped off the day while I was waiting for my ride by bringing me a bottle of water and handling my clubs when my ride arrived. No doubt Grand Bear is now on my must return to play list. Oh, the course was in superb condition, sand traps were consistent and in great shape.
