“Great Course. Bring your own beverages”
Review of Bear's Best

This is a very nice golf course. It's price point is a little high, but the greens are soft and slow, and the fairways are wide and open. It's a fun course that won't make you angry. The absence of a refreshments cart was a very big negative. The landscaping and maintenance is excellent and the scenery is beautiful, but where was the cart girl? She passed us on the first hole right after we left the pro shop and had what we needed. But we never saw her again. And, to make it worse, when you make the turn you aren't near the clubhouse for a refill. On a hot summer afternoon the dehydration made the round unpleasant. I would definitely play there again but definitely bring my own drinks.

The golf course design doesn't flow. The course is comprised of Nicklaus designed holes from some of his other courses, but the flow of the holes is discombobulated. In addition, our golf cart died on the 14th hole, and we had to push the cart until the 18th tee box. We called twice, and the beverage cart called once, but no one came for almost an hour. And we were not offered a discount or a reduced rate for another round. $157 green fee is grossly overpriced.

Bear's Best is, simply stated, an exceptional golf course that provides a challenge to players at every level. As a local I have had the pleasure of playing the course a number of times and have never been disappointed. The course provides the unique concept in that it is comprised of replica holes from Jack Nicklaus' designed courses from all over the world. The staff provides outstanding service. Maintenance is exemplary as the fairways and greens have always been in immaculate condition. The clubhouse is a beautiful facility and the dining options are much better than those offered at typical golf clubhouses. It's not inexpensive but not outrageous either. I've paid far more to play on "resort" courses that were inferior in every way.

I have played thousands of rounds of golf and this one is up there. We had our Tour Tournament of Champions at this location last weekend and it really was a great course. The fees are high but the "Puzzle" experience of holes from all over is an awesome one. By the way...on #6 and #11 the par 3's...just go at those pins....you only live once:)
