from a beginner

The course is beautiful. It was very challenging for me, as a fairly new female golfer. Breakfast was delicious, and the bartender was awesome. I can't wait to go back!

Bear Creek Valley Adventure

Go early and have the best breakfast at the Lake!! Everyone is so friendly! The course is beautiful! It's very challenging with elevation changes, of course trees everywhere and it's share of water. It's always one of our go-to courses when we play at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Love it!

Bear Creek is one of the BEST courses in the area. Well laid out, even if I struggle with a couple holes! Still a good value, with a beautiful course and great clubhouse!
