COURSE IS IN NICE CONDITION, ONLY PLAYED 13 HOLES BECAUSE THEY STARTED A TOURNAMENT ON THE BACK NINE WITH WALKERS, NEXT TEE BOX HAD 2 GROUPS WAITING TO TEE OFF- POOR VALUE TO GET UP EARLY AND NOT BE ABLE TO FINISH ROUND! SHOULD NOTIFY GOLFERS THAT THEY WILL ENCOUNTER THESE CONDITIONS!

Played the East course Friday, Mar 17 and the West course on Sunday Mar 19. Both days, our group only saw the beverage cart one time even though two carts were working. This needs to get better.

Overall both courses are in good shape, but the tee boxes were in bad shape. There is very little grass on the tee boxes. Hopefully the Spring will help bring these back.

Had a tee time of 3:18, they didn't have any carts available so had to wait for one to be returned. Once we got the cart there was no starting at the tee box so there was a line of people. I explained we had a tee time and no one cared so we didn't tee off until roughly 3:45. Pace of play was horrible only saw the cart girl once the whole time. Tried to explain what happen and no one in the pro shop cared.Overall horrible experience to play there and staff was unfriendly.

Friday afternoon tee time went surprisingly well. Staff at the course were all exceptionally friendly, including the starter who hinted at several holes to watch out for as he checked my receipt, and issued me a cart.

Carts all have GPS, which is a nice plus when you don't have a range finder.

Course plays very tight so good course management is necessary or you're in for some high scores and a long day.

Greens were patchy in some spots but overall in good shape for grass just coming out of semi dormancy, and the fairways were in much better shape than many other ocurse

the course was not bad for late winter/spring. the best part was the greens, rolled very good. the tee boxes and bunkers will need more work to have this course in better shape for the spring and summer.

had some friends in from the austin area and we had a great day of golf. except for some sand traps under construction, i can't find fault with either course. will be back and that might help with a few of the blind trouble spots and slopes. just wish it was closer.

The pace of play was great! Finished in 4 hours. The sand traps were aweful. The greens were good. It's winter, so you cannot expect much of the fairways and tee boxes.

I enjoyed the round yesterday. The course was in decent condition considering it's still winter. A good price through GOlfnow certainly helped. The greens were pretty good and the fairways will improve. The bunkers were not great but they usually are. The pro shop staff and starter were friendly and helpful. I've found that to be true nearly every time I've played here and I've played there many times. The lone exception was a maintenance guy in a cart. I walked onto the range ahead of my round, hit one ball and the guy pulls up and yells " Get on the mats" in a very rude tone. If there were signs I would have followed the rules. I did so and kept my mouth shut despite wanting to say something. Aside from his attitude, the annoying part was others down the line (including the golf school tent at the far end) continued to hit from the grass. He drove right past them without saying a word. I'm not sure how I managed to get the pleasure of his company as I had no contact with him before or after.

Love to play Bear Creek east or west. I think replacing sand in bunkers is great, easier on white sand . They need to update range with yardage signs and PRO V1 range balls.

Great day on the course yesterday. We are just coming out of TX winter so the grass is still brown. The greens were in great shape. I ended up in the sand about 5 times and the traps were in good shape with real sand not dirt. The air traffic from DFW is a little noisy but you soon tune it out. Love this course as there are no homes on it or busy roads to deal with. Keep Bear Creek in mind the next time you play.

The course was overall very, very, good. Fairways not as dry and brown as most this year, greens in great condition. Great people in the Pro shop, restaurant, and on the course. Happened to have caught this round while the sand bunkers were being cleaned out and replenished with new sand. Not too fun hitting out of a clay bowl. I wish the Pro would have set a temporary local rule of allowing placement of the ball out of the bunker, away from the pin, in the rough.

Pin placements very challenging! Great experience.

I caught a great price for a round at Bear Creek. I always enjoy each chance I get to play there. The hilly and turns of the course make it very interesting and challenging.
