About

Holes 18
Type Private
Par 72
Length 7276 yards
Slope 146
Rating 74.8

The 18-hole, private golf course at the Bear Creek Golf Club is initially a challenge. Opened in 1985, Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay designed the demanding course. The course's difficulty stems from the undulating greens and various hazards. The course stretches over 7,000 yards, playing to a par of 72. It provides more than just a tough game of golf; the course also successfully captures the natural beauty of the area. The wildflowers such as Indian Paintbrush and Fringed Sage were kept in tact as well as the indigenous Crested Wheatgrass roughs. Bear Creek requires accurate shot-making and precise strategy rather than sheer strength. Although beginners may find the golf course difficult, it gets easier with practice and the gorgeous terrain is worth it.

Fun and Challenging Course

Bear Creek is a fun but very challenging golf course. Men only and very few people playing rounds each day, the pace of play here is amazing, easy to play 36 holes in under 7 hours. The course is maintained to perfection, trouble all over, (high grass, trees, water), numerous blind shots, and some very interesting holes. It is a must play for anyone who gets the opportunity to play.
