 Club History 
 
 

Only one golf course designer could do justice to the natural beauty at Great Bear Golf Club ó the one known worldwide as the Golden Bear, Jack Nicklaus.

His 18-hole championship design demonstrates why he has been considered the master of his game for decades. Nicklaus has taken the natural advantages of the site and worked harmoniously with them to create a course that is an experience in golf and aesthetics. Integrating the three lakes, several streams, wetlands, small bridges and rolling terrain, Nicklaus has created a course that presents itself differently to golfers of varying skill levels. For the experienced player, the course offers interesting challenges and pro tees that will bring out the best in even the strongest golfers. Yet itís also designed to be a course with the ultimate in fairness and playability. It ensures for golfers of all abilities an enjoyable experience, round after round, and reveals its intricacies and craftsmanship the more you play it. Great Bear is destined to be one of the Golden Bearís most-talked-about layouts.
