The name is no mistake. Jack Nicklaus designed it and if for no other reason it deserves your attention if even for only a couple of hours. Why only a COUPLE of hours? That’s because it’s only a par 29, 1,932 yard beauty.
Ever feel like you were at the top of the world? If you’re a golfer, that’s exactly how you’ll feel on The Bear Lake Golf Club by Nicklaus Design®. This par 29, 1,932-yard course sits at an elevation of 3,400’ to 3,700’ and has some of the best views in the community. You’re going to have to work hard to concentrate while teeing off on the seventh hole, since you’ll be looking at a breathtaking 40-mile view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the valley below. And, since it’s a nine-hole course, you can enjoy a round in the morning and still take the kids for a boat ride before lunch.
The family-friendly, nine-hole layout is located 55 miles east of Asheville and it opened July 5th of 2008.
“We want to encourage not only parents to play this great game, but also their kids,” said Bo Alexander, superintendent and director of golf at Bear Lake Reserve. “Bear Lake Reserve offers an inviting golf experience that the entire family can enjoy without feeling intimidated.”
The picturesque course features seven par-3s and two par-4s suitable for beginners and children learning the game. It also has a comprehensive practice facility. The course offers views of the surrounding mountains and forest, while golfers share the fairways with an abundance of wildlife – including deer, foxes and wild turkeys.
The golf course is the latest addition to Bear Lake Reserve, which offers an array of outdoor activities – including boating, fishing and hiking – all with the family in mind.
The master-planned community is designed for active families who want to connect with the great outdoors. With 13½ miles of shoreline, Bear Lake Reserve offers an array of lake activities such as swimming, boating, kayaking and water skiing. The Lake Club boasts a tavern, theater room, kid’s activity center, fitness center and restaurant.
