Great day.

It was a great round. The course is in great shape. Got rain out on hole 13. But it was still a great day. Always love playing Bear Creek.

A fun Track

Course has a lot of character. Several of the hole are blind shots, so you might want to ride up and take a look before you hit. There are several holes where you can grip and rip, but others you need to play smart.

Folks in the clubhouse were really friendly.

Go play this course and see what you think..

Summer Heat

There is no water on the course and no cart girl/guy with water on the course. Play this course in the winter. Poor design on one of the holes. They stuck it in a crack.

Very fun course, great for average golfers

Course is challenging and fun to play.The greens

are excellent and put very true.

We found the rough to be a little long as several

times balls off of the short grass were hard to find,

this was probably due to the increased rain we have had this year. Course is a great value for the money and we look forward to playing it again.

Carrier Threesome

This Course is on of my favorites Jeff the club house manager is always very friendly and talks to everyone I play there so much he knows me by name the only problem was a foursome came out of the clubhouse on the back mine and slowed the pace down very bad we had the group behind us waiting in the fairways and when that happens it makes everyone rush there shots other than that great day .

Great course

Had a lot of fun. Great course for the money. Only issue was that I had a 7:56 tee time and the sprinklers were still on when we got to the third tee plus the rain a few nights before had the course flooded in some places. Overall, beautiful course and can’t wakt to go back

Good choice

I used Golf Now as a means to discover area courses sine I just moved to the area. Bear Creek is tucked away within a residential area and is a well-kept secret..

I arrived at 9:15 for my 9:42 tee time. There might have been 8 cars in the parking lot. The gentleman at the check-in desk was so friendly and told us all about the course. He even provided a course layout booklet to help us with our round.

The course is in good shape and is challenging. Due to the recent heavy daily rains, the fairway roughs were pretty high but the fairways were in great shape. The greens on this course can be very tough on some holes but they make the golfer really think.

The course layout has well-marked signs but finding hole 12 turned us around somewhat. Water stations need to be maintained but that’s just minor.

I will definitely play this course again and often. Great course for the money!

Nice Golf Course

The golf course is really good shape and the staff is excellent. You get your money's worth. The only concern was the missing water coolers.

Enjoyed

Employees very friendly. Greens were great. Front nine was in better shape than the back nine as the back needed some serious mowing. Will recommend.

Nice Course......Except

No water or cart girl on the course. If not providing water on the course I'm sure you could find someone who would like to earn some money selling drinks out of a cooler if a standard drink cart isn't available. Saturday morning, packed course and hot. Course was in very good shape, staff was extremely friendly.

A True Hidden Gem

Based on previous reviews and the price, me and a few friends make the drive from Atlanta to try out this course. From the moment we pulled into the parking lot, we knew this round was going to be unique. We were met at our car with both carts delivered by a very friendly marshal. The clubhouse was nice and the excellent customer service continued. We teed off on time and marshals worked hard to keep the pace on this very hot day. The course was in good shape and was laid out just like i prefer (no two holes are the same). We played the whites and the course played average difficulty, but there was quite a bit of course knowledge required to play it well. As the temperatures soared, the marshals saw that we were all getting a bit burned out and actually brought us ice water from the club house. As you have read the are working on safely securing the water on the course from local kids. Long story short, this was a fun course at a great value with very friendly staff. We'll be coming back.
