Extremely disappointed

No sand in the sand traps, no water coolers anywhere and it was 94 degrees. The greens had not been cut in several days and the staff was extremely rude about showing up too early and threatened to charge an additional 12 dollars for the early arrival. Extremely disappointed!

Awful greens

First playing at this course. The staff greeted us when we arrived there (very friendly). The course sits in beautiful forest area. But the layout is a bit tricky to find some holes. But the worst part was the greens. I never seen greens mowed the way they did at this course. All the greens had baseball fileds, mowed in alternate directions like how baseball fileds mowed. Because of that the ball rolling was very inconsistent. Will not.go back.

Good for the price

It’s not fantastic by any means buys it’s a good layout except for a few holes. Greens and fairways were in good shape. The tee boxes needed work.

Nice course in Monroe, GA

Bear Creek is a nice course. Greens were good considering the extreme temperatures were having. Some of the bunkers were under construction. No practice range or area to chip, the course lay out was a little confusing. No beverage service or water on the course.

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.
