The greens were a little bouncy but the course was in good shape and fun to play. This course is really growing up to be a nice place to play. Easily played with 1 ball throughout.

I always enjoy playing Bear Creek. It did take me a few holes to adjust to how long and slow the greens were. Not unusual in summer heat though.

We have played here many times over the last 5 years and have seen this course in many different conditions. Today was sunny and windy which affected club selection. The staff here has always treated us wonderfully (Big props to Jim the Starter). Course in fine shape overall, have seen the greens better, but not enough to change opinion. Breakfast burritos are FANTASTIC. We have been known to stop for them when we are playing other courses in the area. We will be returning soon and recommend it highly.

Really like the course layout. Fairways were in very good shape with some of the greens just sanded. The greens not sanded were good. Staff was friendly and helpful. Enjoyed my round.

The fairways were in excellent condition, as were the greens.

We were able to complete our round (4 of us) in under 4 hours.

The only negative was that the kitchen was closed (3:00) before we got in.

A lot of ball marks not fixed on the greens.

This isn't really the courses fault, it's more indicative of the kind of golfers that we have to deal with today.

I love playing at Bear Creek. With its forgiving fairways yet still challenging bunker and water shots it is the perfect balance to ensure a good time as well as a great score. Prices are always right, the staff is always friendly I just feel home when I'm there. If you are looking for a great golf course to play in Chandler Arizona this is a must.

I haven't played the Bear Creek course for several years and took my friend / neighbor there so he could experience playing a new course, for him. I was very pleasantly surprised at what great condition the course was in. I thought the fairways were very plush and the greens true and somewhat quick. It was a good test of golf and an enjoyable day and we look forward to playing it again in the near future.

I really enjoyed this course. Good for a wide variety of players. Fast play on a Sunday at 3:50, without being rushed.

Greens are slow due to some cross cutting. I think it may be due to a change of grass type as the weather warms up. I'm sure they will be faster soon, as the maintenance on the rest of the course was excellent.

My wife and I played The Bear some 5 or 6 years ago and for some reason didn't care for it too much then. We decided to give it another go on Sat., Apr. 1 and were very pleased with the experience. The course was in excellent condition, both fairways and greens. The course doesn't beat you up like some of the desert courses but you still have to hit the ball. Erik, the greeter, was most accommodating and the course ought to be pleased to have him on staff, the first person most people encounter - friendly and welcoming. The club house, though not fancy, is cool and the people very nice to deal with. The price was excellent, though in Feb. and Mar. it is too pricey in my opinion, though supply and demand create this valley phenomenon. It is better than Foothills, San Marcos, Las Colinas, Club West - similar courses ,because of its condition and the pace of play, less than 4 hours. We will return again.

Bear Creek was outstanding. Great weather. Beautifully maintained course, most greens in very good shape and not too fast, fairways immaculate, massive nice teeboxes. Staff friendly, marshalls and players' assistants work well, pace of play excellent for being busy. Our threesome finished 3:45, even though we had a inexperienced foursome in front of us. Overall four stars because just a couple greens were a bit marked up, wish there were a few more bunkers, amenities nothing special, and I always wish rates could be a bit cheaper. Pace, course condition, staff all five stars.
