Windy day in the ATL

Another fun round in the 15mph winds at Bear Creek. It made for some tough golf but it was still as enjoyable as always. No water on the course is still confusing.... because the have water stations throughout the course that are simply not used. Bunkers are rocky and the greens look patchy but played very well. Great Course..... & Value!

Could be a very nice course

It appears they don’t have the money to properly maintain the course.. Greens have a fungus or something. No driving range. Poor sign direction on how to go from 14 to 15. Mid April, May course is in better condition later in the summer. A lot of pretty holes, just a little on the edgy side in condiition today.

Great course.

Great course. I love the layout. If it had a driving range it would probably get much more play.

Fix Hole No 13

Hole No 13 spoils everyone's round. There, I said it! The course is good otherwise. In all the time I've been playing here - years and years - hole 13 has been a thorn in everyone's side. Yes, there's been a lot of rain lately,. And, that just makes the problem with 13 worse. The creek overflows it's banks. The ground literally NEVER dries out. It's a blind tee shot to a narrow, uneven, angular landing area with standing water and a mud pit waiting in the wings. Miss your approach a little short and you are in the swamps of Louisiana! I know it would have to wait until better weather, but improvements to this one hole would help every golfer's round and elevate the course. PLEASE! We're begging you.

Great day, great company

Had to wait about 40 min for the 3rd of the threesome I was paired up with to show up. It was worth it. Course was not full, and once we got started the group was very good company. The course was wet in spots because we've had so much rain lately, but was in very good condition. The greens are holding up well. The course layout is tricky for someone who is new, but is not too challenging. The 3 guys I was with definitely benefited from my experience on the course. Recommend this course all the time.
