Good course that needs maintenance, Dec 07, 2004
|reviewer: Regular Bear Creek golfer
from Houston, TX
|Having played this course over a dozen times, I can tell you that the layout is challenging and enjoyable - this is a credit to the designer. Since it's a par 66 executive course, you'll get a great workout of par 3's, but holes 9 and 18 are very long par 5's and the par 4's challenge as well. Beginners go here for the shorter length among Bear Creek's 3 courses, so pace of place can be an issue. The biggest problem is the poor maintenance of some teeing boxes and all cart paths - potholes at virtually every hole will rattle your clubs - bring club head covers!|

Scope out the green, May 24, 2004
|reviewer: Pete "the heat"
|The utmost care has been taken to design and maintain this course to offer the average or accomplished player a challenging yet pleasurable experience. The rolling hills use nature's contours to create a variety of shots that require every club in-the-bag. The friendly staff will go out of the way to satisfy every customer.|
