A lot has changed in 20 years

I hadn't played Bear Creek in 20 years...

We booked a tee time on the Presidents course. When we got there the parking lot was empty they were only playing the front 9 twice, but the pro shop moved us over to the Challengers for the full 18. The Greens were soft and receptive, and you could easily put your tee in the tee boxes. The fairways were well trimmed, but they left the clippings sit in the fairway. The rough was long, and a ball in the rough was a lost ball.

The Drink cart girl was very polite and there when we needed.

We played the course in under 3 hours, and we had to wait on a few hols for the group in front of us.

For the price, in Houston, you can't beat it!

Bear Creek President's course

I'm not sure the cost can get low enough for this course, the complex seems to be under some kind of renovation or closure. The Presidents course only plays holes 1-8 and 11, the other holes are grown over and unused, some of the other course holes are unused also. That info would have been invaluable during selection of a tee time.

Bear Creek Presidents & Masters Course

Presidents course was only playable on the front Nine course and had to repeat front Nine to complete full 18 holes. Also, Masters course post flooding is not available to play on. Course condition is not good and do not recommend playing.

Good Luck Bear Creek

I have enjoyed playing Bear Creek for more than 30 years however the last time I played was in 2014 and was unaware of the destruction that floods had caused. Presently the President's course is only nine holes. Was told plans are to combine it with 9 holes from the Master's course later this year. The greens were slow but were in good condition. It was worth the money. Wish them Good Luck in their efforts to restore the courses to their former conditions

Decent for the money

The condition of the course is poor. There are bare spots and weeds and clover on the fairways. The greens are in better condition but the turf is longer than it should be, and they are bumpy preventing a good roll on your outs. All in, I paid $25 for the round with a cart, and I got a $25 round of golf, but if you are picky about your course and it's current condition, then I would say this one might not be for you.

This course makes for an easy round.

We all realize that the game of golf is a challenging one. The round of golf at Bear Creek Presidents is as negotiable as any round you'll ever play.

The course is not very long and has no bunkers to negotiate. Water is present but doesn't play a role at all.

If your a slicer or a hooker of the ball, you'll find the course accomodates those issues. If your a low handicapper you'll find that the round will be an easy one.

Speed of play is decent and the greens are slow and spongy, so on approach shots, go for the pin.

In summary, this course is one that will be enjoyable and will give every level of play a shot in the arm.

An open & forgiving course

A good course for beginners as it is open and for the most part very forgiving of errant shots.

No sand bunkers to speak of and no shots over water albeit water on the sides of few of the holes.

Most frustrating part of the game was the pace of play. We were behind a father with a young son who the father was teaching. By the third hole the group in front of the father & son were a good one and half holes in front. The father saw us waiting on each of our shots whether on the tee box or approach to the green. He never though had the courtesy to waive us through. Golf etiquette is as important to teach as is the golf swing.

Decent value for money

Found a good deal and decided to try the course for the first time. Layout very basic - straight up and down mostly - with few hazards - no bunkers at all and only a few water hazards. Course was in awful condition. Most of the tees clearly hadn't been cut in weeks and the grass was 4/5 inches long. It was also practically impossible to find a flat spot on any of them. The greens were moss-ridden and some of the slowest I've experienced. Pace of play was terrible due to a couple slow groups. The staff were very friendly, and despite the condition of the course I would play again, but only for under $20.

BC-Challenger Course: Gators & Snails

This was my 1st time playing this course. I've played the other 2 courses located at Bear Creek Golf, and have enjoyed them plenty. This is a decent course.

I did spot a gator in the pond near the 9th green, so be on the lookout. Aside from that, snail-paced play dominated my afternoon. Absurdly slow and no Marshall around.

Some kids playing on an opposite hole in the back nine shanked a shot and almost nailed me while I was putting. No warning or anything.

Cons FAR outweighed the pros on this day. I will not be in a hurry to return.

Large GC with 3x 18 holes

Bear Greek GC has 3 x 18 holes. Therefore, you never wait too long to play next holes.

It was in good location between Houston and Katy. Many people pass it in work.

Please don't go there after heavy rain because it often closed.

I wish they could build better tracks.

Horriable Place

I booked tee times for my wife and I. On there website and at there pro shop there is nothing about how tall a child has to be to play golf. My grand daughter was with us. She goes with us almost every time we play golf out there and actually learning to play. We go to sign in and a older gentleman who i am guessing plays there a lot walks over to one of the marshals and said something. He walks up to me and said that there wasn't an age limit but that a child had to be a certain height to play out there. Then walks off and winks at the older gentlemen. NO where does it say that. While we where there I seen other children playing. The point is my wife did not get to play, so we paid for nothing. That is not the way that should have been handled. We will never go back.

Presidents Course

It was a great course overall , It had its wear and tear , but the course was well kept for as many people that i saw there. It is an open course not as many trees as other courses that play along a forest but good enough to play a wonderful round of golf.

Bear Creek a great public course. Now if they would just fix the bridges on the Masters course, the back 9 is getting old.

President's course, moderately challenging.

Fairways were in good shape and mowed, greens receptive, soft but a little thick and slow. Overall had a nice time and will definitely play again.

greens in good condition

All three of Bear creeks courses are a good play for the money. Greens in great condition even with hot and dry weather. Fairways are alittle rough. They do overbook tee times. The gentleman working as a starter isn't very friendly. Also alot of ants in restaurant when i ate there.

Greens were SLOW

The course was very firm, and some holes had no grass in spots if you are off the fairway. The greens were very very slow.
