Great Course

Beat Creek is a very nice course that requires some good shots to play. I 100% recommend you play this course if you never played it before.

Greatest Course

The course was one of the best I have ever played. I will definitely play it again. The golf cart was terrible. We barely made it through our round.

5 1/2 hr day.

How can you expect to get any repeat business when it's a 5 1/2 hr day. Saturday morning at 9:00 am. The Marshall showed up on hole 18 and was only interested in the tourney ....behind us. The layout is very good. The greens were in very good shape but I'd rather drive an hour, play 18 in 4 hrs and head home.

No thanks on the replay. We'll go somewhere else.

Packed, terrible pace

Two and a half hours to play 7 hours. Two group wait at each tee box. Construction on at least a third of the holes hindering play. We used to play this course a lot. Now over crowded and not worth 80 bucks (two golfers) for a round. Won’t be returning any time soon.

First time will be back!

Played west and was great! Bring your putting game. Only complaint was the carts, had issues and died on me on the last hole... but they came to rescue quickly! Need new carts.

Nice track

Bear Creek West is a nice track. It is in good shape and the ace of play was great except for one slow foresome but they let me play through in short order.

Slow play. Great conditions, except for bunkers.

check in staff and starter were extremely friendly and helpful. Fairways and greens were perfect. Bunkers are not sand, but some clay dirt mix with a hard base. Chunk and run bunkers shots are about all you can do. As usual at Bear Creek, play was very slow. Four some in front of us were holding up the entire course.

Stable course

Played this course several times and each time have had a mixed bag experience. This time was different and had a great experience...the fairways and greens were in great shape.

Get out and play this course!

An hour wait for a golf cart

Course was overbooked due to a tournament on Saturday, and had no carts available for daily fee players. Waited an hour for a cart. Then the course was backed up, we waited 20 mins on 1 tee for 4 other foursomes to tee off. Its 100 degrees out, and non of their water stations had water.

Terrible experience. Paid for 18 holes, but left after 9. And, will never go back.

Very nice. Fun to play

I was told that the greens were aerated about 3 weeks ago. Just starting to come back and was a bit slow. Course layout is nice. I think better than the West course. Great Hot Deal online then when I arrived about an hour before my tee time I was asked if I wanted to go early and was sent out right away. Lots of trees and really, a nice fun course to play. Give it a go. Thumbs up!!!

The planes don't bother you

This is a great little course with 2 full length 18-hole courses on them. So the variety is great. The holes here are tricky and are in great shape all year round somehow.

During the last winter, somehow their fairways were bright green.

Nice round on the west side

Bear creek is a tough little course with some blind shots and forced carries. it also had something ive never seen before...a flag that your supposed to raise and lower for blind shots to let the tee box know its safe to hit. interesting idea. ive always seen bells to ring or gps but not a bag idea, if used, which the group in front of us did not. the conditions were really good, but super tight lie fairways in some spots. also a few of the par 3 tee's were beat up pretty bad. the bunkers could use some grooming as they were hard but seemed like enough dirt. had to use a wedge with less bounce to hit well out of them. greens were where this course shined and im a huge greens guy. fast and true from what i saw. got a little faster as the day wore on. really nice design and very pretty hole views. the one thing ill comment on and its not huge just not my preference and its the first time ive seen this in Dallas...gas powered carts? there were a few elevated tees but nothing electric couldn't handle. overall a great round, right at 4 hours with multiple groups in front of us. we saw the ranger 4-5 times, no doubt keeping pace, which was well appreciated. thanks alot bear creek, will be back again.
