The Cub course is in excellent condition. I especially like the condition of the greens. We asked for a replay of 9 holes after we played 18 and I thought the price was a little high especially since there was no other players.

Fairways and greens in excellent shape. Somewhat short executive course but a lot of fun anyway.

The pace of play was excellent, in that we went the 18 holes in a little over 2 hours.

Am anxious to try the long course next.

Nice practice course for your short game. It's a little confusing on how to get to each hole. Course in great shape. Mike the starter was very nice. I will play it again.

Nice little course for my girlfriend to learn & practice, got lost between 11 & 12 as you must turn around & go back from where you teed off on #11. Other than that great day & round; staff was very good met us at drop off, check in a breeze, sandwich & drinks before our round from kitchen not bad & green & fairways were in very nice shape.

I was extremely disappointed - for $45, this course is NOT worth it. The layout is funky, the greens are terrible, we didn't see the beverage cart until hole 16 (on a par 59!!) and when we did, she didn't have much for food or drinks and only took cash. It's 2017, step up your game! I like the full course at Bear Creek but will never again play the cub/executive course - Unless it's free. I highly recommend you look elsewhere for golf. Bear Creek is off the list for the time being.

there are 2 courses here and one is a par 3 course...we did not know that nor does it show it...when i asked a friend about Bear Creek he said it was decent...i booked it on golf now and when we arrived we were informed that we booked the "executive" course. When i voiced my fervent disappointment and said i hadnt played a par 3 course since my 2nd year of golf...rather than offer to have us to pay the difference to play the "real" course the woman behind the counter very matter of factly said "oh well thats what you booked". the worst part is that the other course was, from what we viewed, very wide open and im sure could have accomodated us (it was after all a wednesday after oon). I will say the starter at the par 3 was very freindly. The cource itself was just OK but the greens were decent....my advice to Golf Now subscriders is just make sure you read the fine print on Bear Creek before you hit reserve

it was my first time going out this year to golf wanted to start on a beginner course. I only used my diver on 3 holes. The rest I used my irons even for teeing off. Very short course. Everything was splendid. The fairways were green, putting greens green the only thing that is a little frustrating about the course is that the holes are every close to each other and it can get confusing sometimes on where the hole is. you see carts spread everywhere and wonder if they are on your driving path

This was an ok course there wasn't a lot of room for you to use to many clubs but it is good for beginners and people who want to play with limited time. You could finish this course in about 3 hours and the tee times are spaced about every 10 min that made it nice. The most used club in my bag was my PW they have a bunch of holes that are short or that are reachable with in a weak drive and a slight pitch. I would recommend you play this course if you want to practice your short game or work on your iron play.

We love golfing the Cub , we are from Ontario Canada and 4 years ago we met a beautiful couple on the 4 th hole when they invited us to join them . ( it was backed up a bit) which we are very happy about now . We are very goods friends with this couple now and every time we are in beautiful Arizona we get together with this couple who is from (NewFoundLand Canada ) and come to the cub to play. We love it.

We have also played the Bear which is a beautiful course . Everyone is very friendly,

Keep up the good work
