Great course but tough.

I Love Bear Slide because it’s a great test of golf. I’m a 7 handicap and like going here to see how my game can hold up.

Course in excellent shape

The course was in great shape. The starter was very helpful in getting me off the first tee a little earlier than my tee time, and he did a good job of managing everyone who was on the golf course. Teeboxes and fairways are in great shape. Greens are faster than most public courses in the area, but not lightning fast. They rolled very true. I look forward to going back.

Challenging course

This was my first time playing Bear Slide. The course was difficult. The layout was fantastic. Some of the Fairways were extremely tight. Some greens were fast, some were slower. Overall, I would recommend this course.
