Great course but backed up

Challenging course, great conditions, amazing clubhouse/range/outdoor area, nice staff. I teed off in the afternoon and the pace was slow. Maybe there was an event but we had 5 groups backed up on the back 9.

S L O W

I play my golf at a country club. When there's a tournament I never join in because I cannot play on saturdays. Therefore I pick a public course to play on Sunday. Occasionally I will play Bear Creek. But that's only after I forget how absolutely slow this course is. I have never played this course in less than four and a half hours this particular round was 5 hours and 5 minutes mind boggling and brutal when it's that hot. The course was in good shape but the pace of play was killer. The other super negative of this course are the golf carts they are ancient gas powered carts that are totally unresponsive sometimes backfire and I can walk faster than the cart I was in would go on this particular day. This course is really missing the boat by allowing such pitifully slow play and not updating their cards

West

Fairways and greens were in great condition. Clubhouse may or may not have change, so probably best not to use cash. It would be nice if the outdoor kitchen had grilled good or at least hot food, but oh well, it was a nice time.

Extremely slow play

The golf course is in great shape, greens roll very nice and fast. Fairways and tees were in great shape. Cart girls come around a lot. Only bad thing was the extremely slow play.

Average Course

The bad:

Took almost 10 minutes to check in and wasn’t told where East or West course started, wasn’t given a scorecard, wasn’t told where to go for the golf carts. Starter didn’t show up until the group behind me decided to just go up on the 1st tee. Greens were not in the best condition, patchy in some areas. All water on course very gross / moss green and smelly. Tee boxes were torn up for the most part. Golf cart parking brake didn’t work.

The good:

Excellent course layout, decently good food and good price. Has range/chip/putt practice areas.

Over priced, terrible pace of play, no drinkable water, no golf ball washing station, over watered fairways and mud everywhere

$60 for 18 and cart and green fees. The golf car very rarely went forwards after pressing the gas. Often times drifting backwards and suddenly kicking into gear giving you a jolt.

Pace of play was so bad. Scheduled tee times were 5 minutes apart which meant every hole was stacked with people on the green, mid-hole, and tee box.

Everything was muddy. Greens must’ve been punched semi-recently or they have a bad mower.

Saw the golf cart girl twice in 4hr 45 minutes. No water stations or golf ball cleaner stations anywhere on the course.

PLZ check my reservation.

At first, I accidentally booked two and canceled one, but the amount of the canceled part was calculated. Please let me know about this by e-mail.

Average everything but staff

The staff was great in the bar- at the trailer- on the course- everywhere!
The course is tired and needs some work throughout, but the recent improvements are promising

Bear Creek East

The greens were recently punched so they are still recovering. Finished our round in 4 hours and 30 minutes. Nice course layout with some forced carries and blind second shots. The course was very busy, but not as much as the West course. Both are solid courses but the East course is need of some TLC on the tee boxes and bunkers. Will play here again.

Unexpected Pace

They send people off of 10 creating a bottleneck. I was 6:27 tee time. I wanted to be done in 3 hours. I had no idea that people would be teeing off of 10 mid morning. First 9 - :90 minutes, Back 9 - :140 minutes. Not doing that again.

Slow

Too crowded on the weekends. Way too slow. Waiting on every tee. Miserable in the heat. Also, so much traffic means the areas around the greens have no grass.
