The Bear Creek Men's Golf Club was formed in 2003 to promote fun, competitive events for all levels of golfers. The Men's Golf Club competitions are held weekly on Saturday mornings and are early shotgun start times that vary during the year, based on the sunrise time. Start times and format are designated on the schedule.
Events are primarily individual stroke play, but can also include both 2-player and 4-player team events, a Match Play Championship in the Spring and a 36-hole Club Championship in December.
