We had a great round to celebrate Mother's Day a day late. Very reasonable rate to play and the greens were in great condition. Not a hard layout for ladies to play. Ron in the golf shop is very accomidating and wants your business. Give this course a try! It is worth the drive to Monroe.

My friend and I were looking for a new course to add to our list of courses to play. We were both pleased to have found this course. First of all the greens are top notch and roll true. They are perfect in our opinion. Lots of blind shots but very playable. Jeff at the pro shop gave us a book on the course that gave tips and overview of each hole We will definitely be back. Thanks to all staff and grounds keepers for great condition of the course

The layout is awsome very risk reward on some holes and some very friendly greens are fast and in great shape fairways and tee boxes well manicured I would update the signage though some have faded badly and unless you know where you are going you might miss a turn but the course itself outstanding as always

Love the layout of the course. 1st time on the course, played with a gentleman that played before. He gave me a few pointers. There are some blind tee shots, sometimes an iron of the tee is all you need. Good course and will be back to play in the future.

My brother-in-law was in town and wanted to get a round of golf in so we booked a tee time. The staff was very friendly and coordinated the starting holes well to keep the pace of play up. The course is very nice and challenging and the greens were very fast. I would definitely recommend this course and will be returning for another round in the near future

Management would do well to rethink hole positions. Side hill holes make the green three puttable. They were placed so extreme that I am considering never going back.

The round was okay, but I doubt I'll be headed back. I don't like courses that make you guess where the heck the green is. On a number of holes the flag is not visible from the tee box and there aren't any hole displays or a layout on the scorecards. The same can be said for hazards. On one hole you tee off over water, but can't see the fairway beyond. Surprise, there is just a small section of fairway followed by another hidden hazard. The course is in fair to okay condition.

Normally I can find something good to say about the places I'be played but this was a mediocre experience. There are too many other good courses nearby that I'll go to in the future.

The greens there are great! Overseeded tee boxes are green and plush. The best part is it was only $25at the clubhouse and I could play all I wanted. It was less than the price on golfnow. The sign out front said tuesdays and Thursday year round play all you can for $25. I will be back Bear Creek!

First I want to say I appreciate the friendly atmosphere from both the staff and the patrons of this course. Now for the greens. I played here about a month ago when the leaves first started falling and was very disappointing. I had to rake a pathway through the leaves to put to the hole. Not so this last game; the greens were clean, but could have used some rolling. I found them a little inconsistent with regard to their slickness. The T-boxes almost seem to be a work in progress, especially difficult on the par 3 holes, but they do have signs of fertilizer, so I'm sure the GK is working on them. I'm looking forward to the Toys for Tots scramble tournament, and will likely play there again today.

My biggest pet peeve of any golf course is when the groundsman do not rake or keep the bunkers. What in the world is the point of having bunkers if you can't play out of them? I cannot even begin trying to hit out. All it takes is a little bit of raking to freshen up the Sandtrap's floor. Instead you have to take a drop and it defeats the entire purpose of having those hazards.

Greens are quite undulating which makes putting on Champions Bermuda interesting. The problem is whoever set the pins hasn't a clue. most were set on the side of hogsbacks or ridges. You can't set pins on slick greens like that. The only other area is also maintenance related. As we get into fall, bermuda grows slower and eventually stops until late Spring. They are mowing the grass to the point that there is nothing to hit off of. It makes for frustrating golf when hitting off of hard pan or mud. Other than that it was a great day to shoot 70.

The fairways were hard as a rock and the greens were super dry your ball would get no bite on the greens or would not even leave a ball mark. I had to hit two clubs lower than I would usually to hit the distance that I needed because the ball would roll for days like it was on concrete. But it's a $20 golf course all day. This was the second time I played on the course the first time it was raining and the experience wasn't that great due to the weather
