Little Bear Golf Club
Little Bear Golf Club offers a unique concept, it is the first layout of its kind in the country. Rather than the traditional nine or 18 holes, Little Bear has an 11-hole layout. There is a 'front five' and 'back five' with a challenging additional hole that features an island green. The golf course was intentionally designed for those looking for a quick 40-minute round, perhaps after lunch or work. A bare soybean field was transformed into a rolling landscape with three large lakes, a meandering stream, and a stone waterfall. Over 1,000 trees and several sand bunkers were also incorporated into the layout. The bonus hole, which can be played individually or as a challenging end to a round, is a replica of a hole at the famed TPC Sawgrass.

Horrible course. Tee boxes and greens are fake grass. The layout is impossible to follow. Never played on such a bad course. Honestly, I wouldn’t come back if it was free.
All greens were turf. Value of $11 for 11 holes is phenomenal but the putting is brutal and is not enjoyable based on how unrealistic the greens are. Like putting on a carpet with the ball on roller skates. Good place for teens and golfers just looking for a laugh.
Greens and tee boxes are turf with weeds growing. No one in the shop. Not mapped out well, no clear directions to next holes. Not worth a dime
This place was a lot of fun with little to no one around during play. The rough is extremely penalising due to work being done on the course. The setup has many water holes which adds pressure to hit a good shot. I will definitely go back soon.
Clubhouse wasn’t even open today. There was no scorecard, holes aren’t even numbered completely. Grass was super long, no flags in the holes. Multiple holes on each green. This course wasn’t worth paying even $2.00 for. Even for walking the course it wasn’t worth the money.
Tough little starter
Let's get the obvious out of the way. No this is not a full course and if you were expecting that you missed the executive part of the course.
It's a nice little par 3 within walking distance of the house. The Tee boxes are astro turf so don't attempt to actually tee off. The greens are equally astrology turf, your ball will run. There are some areas where a little maintenance would do the course some good as it does appear the place has seen better days.
That all being said it's still a nice place to learn your short game AND putting control. The staff was rather friendly with our group. Since it's a 5 minute walk from the house I would recommend it to anyone who's nearby and wants to kill a little time or realize your putting game is absolutely atrocious.
Hi, thanks for taking the time to write us a review. We enjoyed hearing about your experience at our course and it's great to hear you enjoyed yourself. Thanks and we hope to hear from you soon.
Course was in horrible condition! Turf tees and green are a joke. It felt like you were playing golf on an extended putt putt course. If you were lucky enough to hit the green, the ball would bounce clear off into the jungle they called the rough. I just felt duped after playing about 3 holes. My friend and I finally abandoned ship at hole number 5 knowing we would never get that time back.
We are disappointed to hear about your latest visit to our course. We want every golfer to leave happy and obviously that did not happen in this case. We are working to improve the course every day. We hope you'll give us another chance in the future so you can see how nice the course can be.
DON'T waste your time and money
I was aware the tees and greens are astro-turf. That was not a surprise. Unfortunately, they are matted and worn. It is not a good place to even take your daughter/son to learn the game. There are no fairways. It's either tee, green, or 4 inch rough. The greens are so matted down, they are not puttable. I know it's not supposed to be Muirfield, but it's not worth even going. There are plenty of other par 3 courses in the area.
We are sorry to hear that you were unsatisfied with the conditions of the course. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make it up to you.
