The Bear Creek Golf Complex offers two golf courses, one championship length course and one executive length course, the Cub Course. This sporty course is ideal for beginners and families. Like its sister course, the Bear Course, there are rolling fairways and well-manicured greens that have unique swales and collection areas. The design features five par 4s and the rest are par 3s, all of which vary in length. A round of golf on the Cub Course can be completed in less than three hours. The Bear Creek Golf Complex also boasts several practice facilities including a lighted driving range, two putting greens, and a short game area with a bunker.

Pace was slow. Appreciated being able to start early with just our twosome because the other 2 golfers were a little late.

Too many short holes.

Always Fun

It was a bit slow with the high school kids playing. One of them also took my friends ball after she teed off. Once they left, the pace picked up until we got to the 14th hole. It was backed up quite a bit.

Disappointed

The Cub course was disappointing. Have played the Bear course which is in good shape the Cub sad. Tee boxes in terrible shape. The layout is confusing and missing signage makes it difficult to navigate the course. Given the size and the condition there is no way I would pay what you are asking for the. cub course again.

Bear Creek - Not Worth It

I travel around and play golf courses all of the country. Unfortunately Bear Creek would rate as one of the biggest disappointments I’ve experienced in Phoenix. Unwelcoming staff in club house to poorly maintained golf carts. For the price and experience I wouldn’t recommend Bear Creek golf facilities.
