Great track

Enjoyed playing this course. Fairways were good, greens were in great shape. Hole 17 was a par 3 all down hill, my favorite so far of the Ozark courses I’ve played. Range was closed for the year.

Lots of elevation difference. Very scenic layout. Extremely fast greens such that some pin locations were unfair. Good value.

I love a course where you pretty much only see the hole you are on. That's the case for most of the holes at Bear Creek Valley. It is cut out of the forest and hills in the lake of the ozarks area. Very scenic. It has elevation changes on almost every hole. bring your thinking cap with you when you play here.

Bear Creek Valley GC is beautiful!

The course was fantastic, the changes in elevation were challenging and provided scenic views. Hole 10 was temporarily closed so we played two different balls on hole 16 to complete the round. Staff also provided a free drink at the end of the round, which was a nice gesture. I look forward to a return trip.

Only 17 Holes

We booked a tee time for 12 golfers to play our yearly family scramble. We hadn't played this course before so we figured we would give it a try. Upon arriving at the course we were told that hole 10 was closed due to green conditions and offered no discount. They offered us one free drink instead. Most of the greens were in bad shape and at least one had an area that was fenced off. Workers continually ran golf carts down paths and holes while we were taking swings. I will not be playing here again and would recommend other golfers play somewhere else.

Everyone was very nice....hole 10 is closed and another par 3 should be but all courses are stressed right now

Like hiking with a golf cart thru the woods sometimes challenging

1st Time

Played a Monday afternoon thinking it wouldn’t be too crowded and we were right. Nobody behind us for 5 holes. Just a mile off the strip in Osage and you felt like you were in the middle of nowhere. No houses/condos which was nice. Course was tight in spots but fair. Forward tees were a perfect advantage for my wife. Fairways and tees were perfect. There were some greens that were rough but most were fine. They were aerating number 10 green when we were playing it. Looked like it was mostly dead. Tough starting hole with a 200 carry over water then blind shot to the green with a pond in front. I would like to play that one over. Don’t know if they allow walkers but I wouldn’t advise it!

Bear Creek Valley golf course

Second time I've played this course. I really like it. Not very long, but does require good accurate shots. Greens were in good shape, though I did find several divots, which I fixed besides my own. Putting was very reliable. Just really like this course.

Great deal

Had a screaming deal on this course. Very hilly course and in good shape. Would play it again and interesting layout, make sure you take extra clubs for long uphill shots.

Always a Fun Course

Always a fun round The staff is always friendly, the food in the attached restaurant is excellent.

It was a hot day, so there were not a lot of other players, thus the pace of play was great.

The course is in good shape, except the bunkers. There appears to be a world wide shortage of sand for bunkers, at least at most of the courses here at the lake.

Great course

This course was in perfect condition. Greens were a bit slow but considering how dry & hot it has been I’m sure they are not cutting them as often. Overall we enjoyed playing the course & would definitely play it again when we are in the area.
