Bear Creek West

This side of Bear Creek has always been the best....and you pay for it. However today the course was in rough shape and not worth 60 bucks for sure. You could lose a kidney on some cart paths and it appears they are trying to get it back onto shape, but for now a pass for 60 bucks

This is a very nice course.

The course was in good shape aside from the sand traps. The traps need some fresh sand.

Easier then east!!

West course is easier than east and green/fair way/tee box are better. I think you can save at least 4 compare with east..

Not worth it, as usual

Took a year off from playing this course and not much has changed - top dollar cost for a bottom barrel experience. Course was in terrible shape, with grass patches everywhere. Round took close to 5 hours as is apparently typical of this course. Getting food and a drink at the turn took almost 20 minutes which didn’t help. Pro shop also tried to charge one member of our group even though the round had been prepaid, and gave us a hard time about getting that charge fixed.

Pass!

Great course

Played Black Bear West and it was in great shape. Fairways were good, bunkers, and greens played well. The greens rolled a little slow but still were good. Off the tee you have a fair shot. A few blind shots but it made it fun. Looking forward to going back.

Great course and conditions

Played the West course. Did not disappoint. Conditions were really good. Only thing to maybe point out were that the greens were rolling a bit slow. Fairways were great and bunkers played well. Challenging off the tee but open and fair. Can’t wait to get back out and play.

Enjoyalble Course

Bear Creek West...An old Dallas favorite that I finally played on a Golf Now Promo. Nice mix of holes, carried par 3's too. Nice, moderate elevation changes, no many - maybe only one - forced carry. I see improvements going on - new restrooms, some new tee boxes. I'll play it again but after I check out the East.
