Another popular Traverse City golf course is The Bear. It remains every bit the bruin it was when Jack Nicklaus first unleashed the course on June 17, 1985. Celebrated as not only the toughest 18 holes in Michigan, The Bear was ranked as the 18th toughest course in America, according to Golf Digest. Nicklaus’ signature design features Scottish terraced fairways, tiered greens, deep grassy roughs, moguls and mounds and deep pot bunkers. With rolling land, trees, lakes and streams, fruit orchards and a variety of wildlife, you have a mixture of different features that people will see in different places - but rarely on one course. So when you're ready for a true challenge of golf in Traverse City, we suggest you play The Bear!
