Improvements & Updates
Dining Room Construction
Bear Creek has started the renovation on the dining room and the bar area! Depending on what phase the construction is in, Food & Beverage service will be effected and in some cases not available. Our Proshop staff will be able to update all of our customers and members daily when checking in or making tee times. Please excuse the temporary inconvenience and stay tuned for updates concerning the Grand Re-Opening!
Bear Creek Golf Club is setting the pace to increase member satisfaction. We consider pace an asset and key experience factor. We are currently in the process of installing TagMarshal receivers in each golf card to track on course activity, giving our staff the best intelligence to handle pace of play issues swiftly and accurately. Unlike other software, TagMarshal identifies pace of play offenders that are indeed the group holding others up. In additon to receivers for carts, we will have receivers available for walking groups as well. We'll update you as soon as installation is complete! 10/20/17
