We played the West course on November 6, 2017 and the temperature was about 60 degrees when we started and rose to around 75 by the time we finished. The course was in very good condition and the greens were a bit fast, but very playable. I always love watching the planes from DFW airport take off or land during my round at Bear Creek. I would recommend playing this course.

Still........... this place has the worst tee boxes in the DFW area. This need to be addressed. It's a great course but this has been an issue for years and it's just getting worse. They have changed a lot to speed up play which is good but if the tee boxes stay in this shape I'll never go back.

The front nine of the West Course offered fantastic vistas with its hilly terrain and each hole framed by trees changing colors. Back 9 is also pretty, but the Hwy 360 freeway that runs along a few holes cuts down on the tranquility.

Course was in good condition and is an excellent value.

Front nine was a bit slow, but the back nine picked up and total round was 4:10.

I'm a beginning player, really enjoyed the course, it allowed me to continue to improve my play. Drawback is a lot shots in the blind, due to no hole layout on the scorecards or at the tee boxes. Still a great outing and the hazards are not bad...

This was the East Course.

GPS on carts is one of the best features to arrive over the years. This perk has been removed from some courses lately, and for the golfer that likes variety in layouts, this is very disappointing. The system is great for promoting services, as well as help on blind shots and tracking the whereabouts of others. These Bear Creek courses need more markers throughout-GPS recommended.

Fairways were in good condition. Greens were a little bumpy from being punched recently. They need to be rolled.

Worst bunkers I've ever seen. Tees were nasty. Greens were avg. Putting green and range were a joke. I hope you like paying $9 for a medium bucket of balls that are old, scuffed up and have all been run over by the mower. Spent a total of $80 and wish I could take it all back and do yard work or something. Save your money or play elsewhere

Played on 9/8 and bunkers on several holes were shabby. Compacted. But today i landed in several and they were fluffed and raked. Rough is really high and finding the ball let alone hitting it back into the fairway is no small task.

Greens finally playing acceptably
