Little Bear Golf Club
Little Bear Golf Club offers a unique concept, it is the first layout of its kind in the country. Rather than the traditional nine or 18 holes, Little Bear has an 11-hole layout. There is a 'front five' and 'back five' with a challenging additional hole that features an island green. The golf course was intentionally designed for those looking for a quick 40-minute round, perhaps after lunch or work. A bare soybean field was transformed into a rolling landscape with three large lakes, a meandering stream, and a stone waterfall. Over 1,000 trees and several sand bunkers were also incorporated into the layout. The bonus hole, which can be played individually or as a challenging end to a round, is a replica of a hole at the famed TPC Sawgrass.

Tough little starter
Let's get the obvious out of the way. No this is not a full course and if you were expecting that you missed the executive part of the course.
It's a nice little par 3 within walking distance of the house. The Tee boxes are astro turf so don't attempt to actually tee off. The greens are equally astrology turf, your ball will run. There are some areas where a little maintenance would do the course some good as it does appear the place has seen better days.
That all being said it's still a nice place to learn your short game AND putting control. The staff was rather friendly with our group. Since it's a 5 minute walk from the house I would recommend it to anyone who's nearby and wants to kill a little time or realize your putting game is absolutely atrocious.
Hi, thanks for taking the time to write us a review. We enjoyed hearing about your experience at our course and it's great to hear you enjoyed yourself. Thanks and we hope to hear from you soon.
Course was in horrible condition! Turf tees and green are a joke. It felt like you were playing golf on an extended putt putt course. If you were lucky enough to hit the green, the ball would bounce clear off into the jungle they called the rough. I just felt duped after playing about 3 holes. My friend and I finally abandoned ship at hole number 5 knowing we would never get that time back.
We are disappointed to hear about your latest visit to our course. We want every golfer to leave happy and obviously that did not happen in this case. We are working to improve the course every day. We hope you'll give us another chance in the future so you can see how nice the course can be.
DON'T waste your time and money
I was aware the tees and greens are astro-turf. That was not a surprise. Unfortunately, they are matted and worn. It is not a good place to even take your daughter/son to learn the game. There are no fairways. It's either tee, green, or 4 inch rough. The greens are so matted down, they are not puttable. I know it's not supposed to be Muirfield, but it's not worth even going. There are plenty of other par 3 courses in the area.
We are sorry to hear that you were unsatisfied with the conditions of the course. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make it up to you.
Smallest Course Ever
No where in n Golf Now did it mention this is a 10 hole par 3 course. And yet they still offered it as a 9 hole or 18 hole course. I was expecting a real golf course and came to this.
All of the greens are AstroTurf.. It was bad. I felt I had to play it though bc I already paid the Golf Now Fee. Felt cheated
We want to apologize for the mix up while booking on Golf Now. We never want to give the wrong impression of our course. Please let us know if there is any way we can make this up to you.
It's like putting on a sloped driveway
This course was not at all what I was expecting. Greens and tee boxes are turf, and the rough is just unmowed grass. I reserved with a cart, but when I checked in they said they were out because two were broken. Bottom line, glorified putt putt.
Thank you for taking time to leave a review. We appreciate all feedback regarding the course.
Glorified putt-putt course
This wasn't at all what I expected. Arrived for scheduled tee time and clubhouse was completely dark. Tee box has turf, which was not a big deal considering what the course is designed to provide. My problem was at the green...turf also.
Played one hole and walked off course.
Astrology turf greens. C'mon man it's not even real golf
Par 3 with fake greens
Not a bad little course. It's a 10 hole course that has fast play. Unfortunately, it has fake tee boxes and fake greens on every hole. Your ball will roll off every green 90% of the time. Its entertaining though, like an adult putt putt golf.
Staff rude, course is synthetic grass. Never notified of this. Horrible condition.
Would not recommend.
Greens and tee boxes are astroturf. Nice course if you want to experience what it would be like to putt on ice.
Course is short and the rain and wind presented difficulty
It had rained the night before and there were some wet spots along with a windy day that made play a challenge. Staff was helpful
Turf for putting greens?? Really?
I expected this course to be like a normal course with actual grass, but to my surprise it was putt-putt turf.... So the putting surface was like putting on concrete. I was really disappointed. I would not play here again. Dont waste your money.
