The layout is fine, nice clubhouse, but tees and greens in awful shape. Definitely not worth weekend green fee

As a widower I moved to Bethany Beach knowing my children would welcome the beach. I joined Bear Trap as a founding member. It was quite lonely playing because of so few members, but the course and its seaside beauty was a good companion. A number of years later I remarried which changed my golfing venue. One night my wife... More

Simply stunning layout, great greens, lovely clubhouse and really welcoming and nice staff right through from the bag drop and starter guys, to the bar and pro shop staff. If you are in the location, this is a seriously "must play" course which is well worth the cost which was very reasonable.

Got a tee time easily through golf now. Afternoon times were much cheaper than morning. Check in was easy. Someone was there to load our cart. They have a range, putting green, and chipping green. Took advantage. Did the second two 9s (the course is made up of three 9 hole sections). We are fast players and had no problem... More

I have not played golf since the end of 2014. I Have physical problems that prevent me from Playing. I was an average Golfer but could play with my son and grandson who are very good golfers and we all enjoyed I. The course can be challenging enough but not punishing

Played this course as part of a golf package put together by Pam's Ocean City Golf. The course was in very good shape, the folks were friendly and it wasn't too crowded when we played in October on Columbus Day weekend. It was pretty open and just right for players with around a 20 handicap. We had lunch in the... More

Very well maintained courses. There are 3 nine-hole courses here, but very easy to transition from the first 9 to the next 9 holes.

Bear Trap Dunes is only a short drive to Bethany Beach, and they offer a shuttle during the summer. They have indoor and outdoor pools, fitness center, hot tub, dry sauna, golf course, restaurant and bar. I don't golf, but I used the facilities and they were very nice. The golfers seemed happy. The property is nicely laid out (although... More

Restaurant is poorly managed. No one there and we cancelled our lunch order after 20 mins since our tee time was soon. Also floors are coated with something that would allow you to slip. BE WARE!
