The Short Game Area is located on the west side of the Practice Range, and has a large green and a bunker. Players may hit chips, pitches up to 30-40 yards, and greenside sand shots in this area only. Players using the Short Game Area do so at their own risk. Please be aware of other golfers who may be practicing at the same time.
Two Practice Greens are available for putting. The largest green is just north of the Practice Range, and a smaller green is located by the first tee of the Cub Course. These greens are for PUTTING ONLY. Please use the Short Game Area to practice chipping and pitching.
The Practice Range features all grass hitting stations. The Practice Range has an area for the general public, and a separate teeing area reserved for use by authorized groups and for individual and group lessons given by the Bear Creek Golf Academy Professional Staff. When utilizing the Practice Range, please hit from the stations designated by white boards only. Do NOT remove range balls or baskets from the Bear Creek property.
