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 open course

I really enjoyed the course. I played the executive, the cub course. They did just aerate the greens but wasn’t to bad. The only negative thing I have about the course was trying to figure out where the next tee box was. Not on every home but every once & awhile wasn’t sure where the next tee box was.

Excellent for Working the Short Game

My short game needs work, but a driving range doesn't allow me the chance to accurately gauge my shots. This course truly allowed me to work on my mid-range and short irons, my wedges, and my putting game. The grounds were in good condition and the pace of play during our twilight round was good.

Great for a golf beginner!

I am new to the game, so this course is perfect for me to practice and improve upon my game! The staff is very friendly. I am from the Denver-metro area, and wish we had more courses like this in Denver. Will make this course a regular whenever we visit!

Ranger?

I don't mind that all courses have all classes of golfers, but when the round takes 4 hours and several holes open in front of the group in front of you ...a little push would help

Fee gouge

We thought we were booked at the Bear main course given an average price of $45. In fact, we were booked at the Cub course. My wife made the reservation and she is not easily confused. Anyway we paid $45 to play a very basic pitich and putt although the Cub is classified as an executive course. I get the course is what is but to charge $45 for this track is a joke. The starter was a nice guy but his nose began to grow when he told us the course was in great shape. Hole 1 looked great but I was very disappointed the rest of the way. There are far better courses even at spring break for the money.

Marginal at Best

We played the cub course & it was just ok. Not really worth the amount we paid for green fees. Greens were marginal & somewhat bumpy. Get off the fairway & nothing but dead ground, like concrete or bad weeds. Virtually no real rough area.
Then whatever you do, DO NOT order chicken tenders at the grill because they were horrible & way over-priced.

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.
