Bear Creek Golf Course
The centerpiece of Bear Creek is a championship 18-hole golf course designed by the architectural team of Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay.
The legendary Palmer, the most popular champion in the history of golf, and Seay, director of design for Palmer Course Design Company, have earned the distinction as one of the nation’s foremost architects of traditional golf courses.
They have created such distinctive landmarks as the Broadmoor South, Kapalua, Saddlebrook and Sawgrass. Bear Creek is one of the finest of the approximately 230 courses Palmer and Seay have designed around the world.
Played from 5,312 to 7,611 yards, the par-72 layout is an outstanding test of golf, one that requires excellent shot making and accuracy rather than brute strength and demanding lengths.
Colorado’s top amateurs along with members and guests have been impressed at Bear Creek’s superb condition. The course has maintained the appearance of a mature, old course almost from the start. The Superintendent and his staff ensure that Bear Creek is kept in top condition throughout the year.
A state-of-the-art 9,000-square foot maintenance headquarters is testimony to the high standard the Club has set for course operations.
