Fun, Affordable Golf for Players of All Ages and Abilities!

Bear Creek Golf Complex is a 36 hole "inland links" golf facility, consisting of 2 courses: An 18 hole championship length course, and an 18 hole executive length course. Bear Creek also has a full Practice & Learning Center, staffed by PGA Professionals who are available for both individual and group lessons. Both golf courses and the practice area were created by the Nicklaus Design Group & Architect Bill O'Leary, opening for play in January 2000.

When playing our facility, you can use your Smartphone as a GPS device with one of the following Free GPS Apps. These apps feature exact yardages to the front, center & back of our greens, and are good for almost any course in the United States.

Simply click one of the logos below to be directed to the manufacturer's website to download the proper version for your smartphone (iPhone or Android). Once you find and select our course, it will be added to your 'favorite courses' for future use anytime you start the App. The Free versions are more than enough for most, but each company also offers a 'Pro' version of the App for a small, one-time fee. These versions will provide additional features & functionality such as scorecards, maps, hole flyovers & stat tracking. Be sure to read the descriptions on each manufacturer's website, and it's completely OK to try both!

Note: Using "Apps" like these allows easy access without the need of your phone's browser. More importantly, it's also less draining on your smartphone's battery life, and uses less "mobile data" from your carrier. Below are the links to each website, and a few screenshots:

Golf-Marathon

"Home of the JGAA 100-hole marathon" The 2016 100-hole marathon held at Bear Creek raised over $41,000. Visit http://www.jgaa100.org/ for more information.

One of our most popular fundraisers is the Golf-A-Thon.  This event is held on the Cub Course, and your group pays a flat fee to use the course for half-day (4 hours).  Your players solicit small pledges for every hole they play, and can play the course an unlimited number of times during the four hours.  It's great fun and has been very successful for a wide variety of charitable organizations.

Event organizers have told us it's easier to ask several people for small pledges than it is to ask a few for big donations. This format is perfect for schools, churches & synagogues, breast-cancer awarness groups, or any organization looking to fundraise.   

What's a golf-marathon? For a flat fee the Cub Course is yours for up to 4 hours - and YOU decide how much money you want to make!  With a 100 hole golf-a-thon, your golfers obtain per-hole sponsorships which quickly add up.

Do the math: You get 40 golfers (a typical field) - who each raise $100 to play (that's only 10 friends pledging .25 per hole X 50 holes). That's about $5,000!  Subtract our fee, which ranges from $800 - $3,500 depending on the season, and the rest is pure profit for your cause.

Easily double, triple or quadruple those numbers. Food and beverage must be purchased separately. Call the golf shop today for more information (480) 883-8200.
