King and Bear Golf Course/World Golf Village

  370 Reviews

Played the King and the Bear today and really enjoyed my round even though it rained throughout the front 9. The course was extremely wet but that is not the fault of the course. Other than that the course was in excellent shape. Fairways and tees were nicely over seeded and the greens were in good shape and rolled smooth. I thought there were several interesting holes with a good amount of water in play. However the fairways are generally pretty wide. I enjoyed this round much more than it’s neighbor the Slammer and the Squire. Both were in good shape but this one was more interesting and fun to play to me.

They would play this course again.

Had high expectations for the WGV course and it met all of them. Greens were firm but fair. Lots of shot options from the tee boxes. Great round of golf.

Played a twilight round - 9 holes (front 9) and the course was in superb shape. The course was a little wet, but only due to a full day of rain the day before. Cart path only, but couldn't complain since the weather was perfect and I had the course to myself. So glad they overseeded - course looked beautiful! The staff was friendly and had fresh cold apples on the first tee. Nice touch!

Played the King and Bear a few weeks ago, after 3 days of playing at Streamsong. Course is nice and fair. Having played many Nicklaus and Palmer course in Michigan, I didn't find this one to be anything special. The staff was great and very friendly and the pace of play was excellent but there is nothing about the course that really wowed any of us. No comparison to Streamsong. Nice course just not sure if it's worth $109.

Solid course design (though 15 and 16 were weak holes near the end). Generally good conditions. Half the fun was trying to decide whether Arnie or Jack designed a particular hole (that would be a nice addition to the scorecard).
Do think the course is a bit overpriced for the area. Would recommend for those who had never played it, but unlikely to play again due to price/value.
Recommend the restaurant for breakfast and lunch - good food and very friendly staff.

They would play this course again.
