Great course, crap regulars and pace of play.
I absolutely love playing this course. Great for beginners to novice golfers. It’s a great value for the money compared to other course. It’s my preferred course since it’s only a mile and a half from my house. HOWEVER, the regulars(older crowd) who play this course make it miserable for all of the rest of us. Between their attitudes towards everyone and their pace of play, it makes the course not as enjoyable. Another thing that sucks is the course management tries to get as many rounds in on top of each other which can slow down pace. Unlike a lot of folks, I actually understand why they do this, what they could do to make it not as frustrating is stagger the starts(don’t start everyone on the same hole). All in all, great course for the money, just some minor issues that if addressed would make it that much better!
Challenging layout but fun
Course was in good shape. Had rain for days prior to round, so path only. Played a little long but nice. Green speeds weren’t consistent. Some were faster and some slower.
Local golfer that plays here a lot. Very well maintained. Can catch a good price on Golf now.
Needs a lot of improvement
Once again this course is not in shape. Tee boxes are hard as a rock and are nearly all dead. Aerate sand and water! Not that complicated!. #1 green had just been aerated and sanded... But all the sand was left on the Green it was not brushed or rolled. Impossible to putt... #3 green aerated with no sand... Impossible it putt. Fairways were in good shape but bunkers were mud clay and rock. I could understand this if they were in process of repairing the bunkers or revamping the course. However the bunkers have been this way for years!
Thank you for your feedback. We have received a lot of good compliments on the course this year. However, around the time you visited, we had aerated our greens on several holes. We have since also done some work on the bunkers. We apologize you had this experience and hope you will come back out in the future.
Pace of Play
While this course is decent and maintained pretty well, the pace of play is absolutely horrendous. They cram way too many tee times in within the day (8 minutes a piece). For example, today they allowed people to book tee times at 6:10 but the sun didn’t even rise until 6:50. That’s 40 minutes of tee times that got pushed back. Screwed up the entire day. They know exactly what they are doing too. The average time of play here is 5-6 hours. This wasn’t the first time either. I’ve played here 4 times now (2 this year) and never has my round been under 5 hours. This is the last time I will play this course. All my buddies agree too.
Not a good value for the money
The tee boxes and greens were in bad shape. There were 3 large groups playing and no Marshall to move them along.
Needs a lot of improvement
This is possibly the most challenging public course in the area. However, there are several improvements that should be made.
1. Tee boxes need to be aerated and sanded. They are just so beat up and hard. Also there are a few that are on a bad slant.
2. Greens are like surface of the moon. I understand this is not 100% fault of the staff. Old codgers need to fix ball marks. However the staff needs to fix them as well in the mornings.
3. Bunkers... Well... That are 100% unplayable. No sand, all mud and clay with rocks the size of a 3wood head. Full of water even after 5 days of no rain.
Love the layout but condition is less than good.
Bear Creek as enjoyable and reliable as they come
Been playing Bear Creek for years and they never disappoint. Tee to greens the course has been in great shape this year of covid. Greens roll true and just a fun course layout. Highly recommended. Will certainly come back.
A buddy and I played here for the first time and were super happy with the course. The gentleman in the pro shop was nice and gave us some info before heading out. The fairways are pretty wide and open for the most part, cart paths were a little rough, but could tell they were in the process of redoing parts of them and widening it. Greens weren’t too bad, fair amount of divot marks, but that’s due to lazy people. No dead spots at all though which is a huge plus in my book. Overall, for the price we paid for this course it was well worth it and we will definitely be back.

I love this track. I wound up using a lot of clubs that don't spend much time out of my bag. The fairways were in great shape while the greens were just fair.
Great golf value.
Too many golfers on the course and only saw a 'Marshall' twice. Marshall did not explain why pace was so slow. Over five hours to play 18. No rhythm, no pace resulting in slow golf.
I say I wouldnt recommend this course, but if they would not book so many tee times, enforce pace of play, and people playing in their game and not from the black tees when they shouldnt I would recommend the course.

Course needs some attention. Bunkers horrible. Greens hard. Lots of weeds
Thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. Our grounds crew is working hard to give attention to our course. Currently, they are working on cleaning up some tree lines and cart paths, along with greens maintenance. We hope you will try us again so you can see all of the work they're putting in.
