The Bear Creek Golf Complex offers two golf courses, one championship length course and one executive length course, the Cub Course. This sporty course is ideal for beginners and families. Like its sister course, the Bear Course, there are rolling fairways and well-manicured greens that have unique swales and collection areas. The design features five par 4s and the rest are par 3s, all of which vary in length. A round of golf on the Cub Course can be completed in less than three hours. The Bear Creek Golf Complex also boasts several practice facilities including a lighted driving range, two putting greens, and a short game area with a bunker.

Nice course at a reasonable price.

Snack cart was available, Marshall let slow groups know when they were falling behind, and the staff was friendly.

Met new friends

Although the round was longer then expected, it was more manageable due to fact that the twosome that we were paired with were very nice. We enjoyed the chats and small talked while waiting to tee off or in between shots so well we booked another round together for the following week. So overall, a good day!

Careful when booking

We booked on Friday and were thrilled to get a twosome early Saturday. All our normal courses had nothing. My mistake but it was not clearly marked. Bear Creek has a full sized 18. I was not Aware that they also have a par three layout. Ouch! My son and I are Good sticks and not what we wanted. Had a good time, course was fair which was expected. Par three layout was not.

Great day in the Arizona sun

Had a very enjoyable day at the course playing with my wife.
We were joined by a local couple who were very good company.
The course, an executive length had a good variety of holes requiring the use of all clubs in the bag.
All in all, a good day on a fun course.

Slow play, greens were bad....

Longest round I have ever played on this track. Greens are in awful shape. Ranger really didn’t help much to speed up play or address etiquette of other players. Otherwise a beautiful day on the golf course.

Very Confusing

The fairways on this course were in good shape, however, the putting greens were very poor. Also, it was very confusing if you haven’t go,fed there before to tell where the next tee box was. There were very few cart paths to follow.
