Great course

Greeted by a very friendly staff. Had rained earlier that morning but the course was dry and to my surprise not cart path only. Course was in great shape. Fairways were green and narrow. Great course for the price. Definitely recommend and will certainly go back.

Excellent greens and fairways. Just enough of a challenge for a northern golfer in January. Temps in the upper 70's made for a pleasant and enjoyable round.

Remember the past

Played here 25 years ago, the course is better than I remembered. 18th is a par 5 with water, played years ago like a Tin Cup. Today got a par.
The course is playable but interesting.

Good Value; Nothing Spectacular

Played the Golden Bear in the offseason around Christmas. The fairways and greens were in great shape but the rough was dead and a little irritating. Overall the value for the price was good but nothing too amazing about this woodland course layout.
