Pristine

Greens were flawless. Great layout. Area received tons of rain before we played Donot was cart path only…but even that could not take away from the experience of that course.

We appreciate the 5 stars, and the review of your experience at Grand Bear. Glad you enjoyed the Jack Nicklaus signature design, we think it's one of the best designs in the area. Sorry about the cart path only restriction - it just means you should come back and enjoy the full experience at Grand Bear, with unfettered golf car driving.

This was a great course and a great price thru golf now. The only complaint I have is it started to rain when we are the 9th hole and of course we had to come in. We waited the rain out and could have finished our round but they closed the course saying it was too wet. However we were the only ones left and I believed they closed it because they didn’t want to wait in just 2 golfers

Gorgeous

Just a beautiful course with well maintained fairways and perfect greens. Unfortunately, it had been raining for a month and the course was completely saturated. Even with that huge amount of rain, the course was lovely. Well worth the time to go play it.

Thank you for the 5 star rating, for the positive comments on your experience at Grand Bear, and as much as anything, understanding that the course is simply saturated from the record amount of rain received. We look forward to seeing you again, perhaps when the area hasn't been hit by so much rain.

We agree with you, Grand Bear is a must play for anyone in the Mississippi Gulf Coast area. The signature Jack Nicklaus design and how it winds through the De Soto National Forest is really one of a kind, and we're constantly working to deliver a 5 star experience. Glad we did just that for you, despite the record rainfall recently. All credit to the incredible maintenance team at Grand Bear, and all their hard work getting the golf course back to form. Come see us again soon!

Fantastic day!

3rd time playing GB & it never disappoints. Wonderful layout & great conditioning. Wonderfully secluded with no outside distraction. Some wildlife. Top notch clubhouse makes you not want to leave. Only negative is the distance to drive from I-10, but no big deal. Well worth it. Haven't been to Fallen Oak or The Preserve, but, to me, GB is #1 on the coast, and maybe beyond.

Golf course was in 9 out 10 rating with fairways and greens in great condition. Staff was awesome. Very informative and accommodating. Course was not crowded and play was fast for us. Clubhouse was top notch and well maintained. Tract of golf course was well layed out and challenging. I would recommend to others for a great experience. I believe one of the better courses in the gulf coast area.
