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.

Signage

Great round Works your irons. Got lost a few times as there is no signage as you are off the cart path most of the time. Need more visuals to move fluid through course. Not wasting time trying to figure out where the next tee box is.

Confusing and unfriendly

Showed up expecting to play bear course but the Marshall moved us over the the cub course after we had already teed off and started down the fairway to take our next shot. He wasn’t nice about it and treated us like garbage. We didn’t even realize there were two courses. Waste of money. Cub Course was not the golf experience we had hoped for. Never golf there again.

Marshall

Played here many times. Need marshals to set the pace. I get newer players take longer however once a person is on a home for 20-30 min, they should pick up. No golfing etiquette here.

Value

Good course for the value. Staff was welcoming and kind. The course is great for anyone who is looking to get into golf or dusting off the clubs. Lots of short par 3's!

Cub course

I should have looked at the yardage befor booking. This is a very short course. Based on the price, which was as much as some much longer courses, I did not anticipate it being so short. Good place for beginners which my wife is, but we felt it was overpriced.

Booked during a tournament and no one said a word until the first trr

Like the title says, booked a round and shower up and say it was way busy than usual. Looked like a tournament but maybe it was this morning. Check in in the proshop, I ask about it and they say they all teed off a while ago and shouldn't be a problem. Get to the tee at our tee time with tournament groups still teeing off and can't even tee off at our scheduled tee time. Took almost 3 hours for 9 holes. What a joke, go play over a Springfield, not far away, but way better to their customers.

Loved it

Really enjoyed it. Pace of play was good, good value for the money and found morning tee times the day before. Had a lot of fun but the cart staff made the day. Danny was awesome along with the younger guy. Would definitely recommend

The Cub

Course is in transition so fairways, greens, and tee boxes in okay shape. That is expected this time of year. Still, a nice course for the money.

Course management

There was leadership or customer service. I could do a much better job attracting and maintaining people. It is all about character and how people would line to be treated and not tomd what to do.
