I guess perhaps the word isn't out yet, but this course is open again...and it's excellent. Almost no one was there. In fact, they closed the clubhouse sometime between 3:30 & 5:30 (while we were on the front 9)...I'm guessing because it was so slow....More

Our annual trip, the "boys" golf 18-36 holes every second day over two weeks. Found prices pretty high this year, or discounted due to poor course condition. The Golden Bear course was the exception. Greens in great shape and pretty quick. Course generally very good...More

Played here one week ago and found everything to be very good. Course was full at mid morning but pace of play was good. Greens were fast and fairways were good. Overall comparable to other courses in the area.

Have always loved this course. Have played at least 10 times but has been at least 10 years. Great staff, so friendly and welcoming. Great facilities, great range. Course is fair but can be tight. Greens are in great condition. Great value!
