Grand Bear

A Jack Nicklaus Signature Design, Grand Bear Golf Club opened in 1999 to widespread fanfare and near universal acclaim. Earning recognition as one of the Top 50 U.S. Public Golf Courses by Golfer’s Choice 2024 (GolfPass), Grand Bear Golf Club offers a unique and seemingly private golf experience built six miles into the DeSoto National Forest. No two holes parallel another, and homes, roads, and other distractions are amazingly absent while on property. In its place, the golfer is alone to enjoy the pristine natural environment, where the manicured course conditions meet the towering pines and surrounding cypress wetlands. Facing the challenge of the trademark Nicklaus design, our guests enjoy superior customer service from bag drop at arrival to a warm farewell on departure.
