Upon check in there was confusion on the Club Key Pass charge. It took two people to figure out what the charge, would be, which was higher than the rate quoted on the website. It was a beautiful day so the course was packed. Pace of play was extremely slow. We were a twosome but waited on every hole. In fact the twosome behind us ended up quitting after hole 16. It is off season but the fairways were pretty rough and some bunkers were in rough shape. We were very disappointed and will not return.
Great Course and Staff
This was the first time we played Bear Creek and we will return on our next rip to Hilton Head. Greens were very nice, great speed and condition. Fairways were in good condition and fair. The only complaint I have is that the greenside bunkers were almost hard packed. They had a very little bit of loose sand covering hard pack.
We play as a twosome and had to wait on several shots, but I expect that as a twosome, The round took about 4 hours.
The staff was great. From the greeting and the courtesy of the staff at the bag drop, the staff in the clubhouse, and the starter were all very friendly and nice.
Seem to be letting the course go!
I've played Bear Creek a half dozen times in 2018. The course looks like they've cut back on maintenance a bit. The cart attendant acted like he didn't want to be there. Really disappointing since it seemed like the course was turning the corner earlier in the year. Hope this was a one off experience.
I’ve visited Hilton Head 3 times in the past year and a half and played Bear Creek each visit. The course was on life support two years ago and the revival has been fantastic. Great Layout and tee to green course condition improves each visit.
NIce But Not Exceptional
Course was well maintained wide open with little water. Given other courses that go to the marsh views this is all around houses.
On a hot deal might play again
Good layout, good condition, and there was a genuine effort to make us feel welcome.
Got a good value on Golf Now. I played here a few years ago and tried it again. It was a pleasure to play. The course was in good shape and the greens ran true and fast. Make sure you play from the tees you are comfortable with. We hit balls and got off early. I would recommend it to all.
Greens were good, 97% of cart paths were dirt, most sand traps had a top layer of sand then packed sand below, not good. Our 4some was told to pick up the pace while a 3some was behind us and we were just behind another 4some. We will NOT be back.
Nice layout which is a good test for all skill levels
Beautiful course. Good shape. Greens are still recovering a little from aeration but still rolled well. Fairways were in good shape other than a rough patch here ad there. Compared to area courses, great $ value. The one thing I wished I had was more yardage detail and hole detail (water, doglegs, distance...etc). They do not have GPS on the carts and the score cards do not have picture of the holes. Bunkers and doglegs come into play off the tee box so be sure to bring a range finder. The lack of those amenities might be the reason for the lower price per round.
Too many dog legs!
Enjoyed our round of golf. Lots of water hazards and dog legs made the course quite difficult however this didn’t spoil our enjoyment.
Greens had been punched, but were very playable.
Rest of course was in great condition.
Staff was friendly as always.
We'll be back again!
Good condition but monotonous layout
Course was in very good condition. The greens were extremely fast (starter said they were rolling a 12) and tough to read, but weren't overly firm for their speed. Only real complaint about the course is the layout, which consists of an annoying number of doglegs. Without counting exactly, it seems like over half the holes are at least a partial dogleg. Other than that, the course is generally enjoyable and the practice facility is very nice.
Outstanding 5 Stars
Played it for the first time and this is high quality golf. Course is in fantastic shape. Greens are firm and fast. Staff is awesome. Even included lunch and a beer. Food was as good as any place on the Island. Will return.
Course in great shape, greens quick but manageable and consistent. Heavy sand in bunkers, difficult to hit blast shot.
