Bear Trace At Cumberland Mountain

  18 Reviews

This is probably the 5th or 6th time I have played here. Each time course conditions are worse and worse. Greens are pry the best part of course and they are not fantastic just good. Fairways don't seem to get mowed or maybe its just when I play. Also some fairways are spotty. Rough is very very rough I mean if it was a pga tour event they would complain. It had to be at least 4-5 inches tall and grass clipping clods everywhere. I mean there are such things as dragging rakes. Sand traps were absolutely horrible!!! I mean rocky and untouched not turned or raked or anything. Tee boxes needed mowed. Practice tee area was horrible, not mowed and just divot filled. Carts are good. People were nice. Price is far too expensive for course conditions. Pro shop is basically filled with everything that has their name on it which is not cheap. All in all I was expecting things to be better then last time I played here and the fly were worse. I truly hope something happens at this course and things get better because it seems to me they are about making money and not putting it back into the course which is deteriorating. Cant believe Jack allows his name to be associated with such a mediocre course.

He would not play this course again.

My wife and I played the Bear Trace for the first time in early August. The layout of the course was very interesting. As first time players we had to drive ahead to see the hole. Could use visuals of each hole by the tee boxes. The greens were in good condition and rolled true. The fairways were a bit spotty and didn't have enough yardages on sprinklers etc. the grass is different than most courses in the Midwest which made chipping tougher for me. All in all this t was a fun course and I would recommend it.

The course is well maintained and greens were in good shape. The layout provided some good challenges, particularly if you were in the rough. Lots of trees and some good elevation changes on a few holes. I would definitely play again.
