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.

Bear course review

Course looked good, fairways were in good shape, no drink cart person. I would like to see club house stock more golf equipment. Needed shoes for a player you don’t have them.
I would like to see the course add lights for twilight golf

Bear course looks fantastic, Cub course needs love

Wow! What a difference between their executive course (Cub) and their championship course (Bear). Bear has nice lush green fairways and greens. Cub looks like an sibling that got less attention and was feed the bare minimum of water It’s acceptable to play if you pay less than say $25-30. Anything more than that I’d look for another executive course in the area or try to get on the Bear course for a couple bucks more. We did finish the cub course in less than 2 hours and it does have about 4-5 par 4 holes. The course layout was pretty basic. No ball washers that I can remember. I think it only had 1 bunker at the 18th hole. If you can get on without paying much I’d recommend it.

Didn’t get to play

I was in urgent care passing a kidney stone. Didn’t get to play. But they charged me for it! Yay!!!!! So not only did I have to pay my urgent care fees, I also had to pay for golf I couldn’t go to and didn’t cancel because I was in too much pain and on pain meds. But hey, they got their money!!

Very good golf course.

My wife and I have played the Cub and Bear many times. Always have a good time. The staff is super. Our cart broke down on #14 and staff had another cart out to us in short time. We only had to let one 4 some play thru. Thats fast. Thanks Scott

Wide open almost no sand traps

I visit your course from Tucson a few times a year. For a mediocre player like me the course is a lot of fun. Only a couple of sand traps. Wide open fairways. No trees. The course was in great condition.

Walked

fun little executive course

Had a blast! I got paired up with 3 giggly ladies and we had a ton of fun. They only played 9 holes, so I was able to zip through the last 9. Can't wait to bring my wife here.

Ranger

The ranger was great he went up and put two twosomes together to speed up pace, but as soon as he left they broke up and went back to two twosomes I guess they blamed it on me cuz they were crawling to their golf carts but other than that everything was great staff is really nice okay that's it

Decent short course, but poor signage hole to hole

Enjoyed this course although it is a short one. Was put off more than once by not knowing where to go to nest. Lack of cart paths made hole to hole transition a bit difficult at times.
