Bear Mountain – Valley Golf Course
The Bear Mountain Valley Golf Course opened in June 2009 to position Bear Mountain Resort as the only 36 holes of Nicklaus Design golf in Canada, and one of the finest golf offerings in North America.
The Valley Golf Course meanders through forest, borders lakes, and traverses creeks and rivers throughout its 18 holes, while offering spectacular views of British Columbia’s beautiful landscape. The par 71 Valley Course measures 6807 yards from the Golden Bear tees – about 400 yards shorter than its sibling, the Mountain Course.
Factor in elevated tee boxes, more generous fairway widths, fewer bunkers and larger greens and the Valley Course will likely be considered a ‘friendlier’ version of the original Mountain Course. Rolling through terrain at elevations of between 300 and 500 feet above sea level, there is still plenty of challenge, and many holes that could be considered the signature hole.
Last year, the Resort introduced Bear Mountain Golf Academy with John and Lori Randle, two of Canada’s most dynamic and experienced CPGA teaching professionals.
