Jack Nicklaus’ playing career speaks volumes. He’s also been designing golf courses for over 30 years. He has course designs on six of the seven continents. In short, he knows a few things about the game.
Mr. Nicklaus had one thing in mind with the concept for Bear’s Best – Las Vegas. Take 18 signature holes that he’s designed from throughout the region and put them together to create a golfing experience like none other. The par 72 (rating/slope:74.0/147), 7,194 yard layout features four sets of tees, allowing all levels of players an enjoyable and memorable golf experience. Another unique feature is the installment of the full-color GPS system that will enhance your golf experience as well as give you accurate yardages to the pin. The system also provides a video introduction by Mr. Nicklaus on each hole along with an animated fly-over of the hole design.
Bear’s Best – Las Vegas has replica holes for Nicklaus designs from courses such as PGA West Private Course in La Quinta, California, Las Campanas in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Bear Creek Country Club in Murrietta, California, Old Works Golf Club in Anaconda, Montana, Desert Mountain (Chiricahua and Geronimo Courses) in Scottsdale, Arizona, La Paloma in Tucson, Arizona and Castle Pines in Castle Pines, Colorado. From Mexico, you’ll recognize holes from Palmilla Golf Course, El Dorado Resort and Cabo Del Sol just to name a few.
