The Valley Course, one of two 18-hole courses at Bear Mountain Golf & Country Club, sprawls across a diverse landscape of forests, creeks, and rivers. The golf course shares many similarities with its sibling course, the Mountain, which was designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son Steve Nicklaus. It offers many of the same challenges including elevated tee boxes and strategically placed bunkers but thanks to the shorter length and gentler landscape, the Valley Course is considered a friendlier version of the original Bear Course. There are also more generous fairways and larger greens that make it even more appealing to the beginning and intermediate player. The golf course is still challenging though with elevations between 300 and 500 feet above sea level. Golfers can enjoy spectacular mountain views on both Bear Mountain courses.

Lots pf challenging terrain

Not for walking and not for beginners. This course has a bite. Lots of ups and downs and the rough is very rough! Very much a mountain course--and very, very beautiful.
