Bear Mountain Golf and Country Club - Mountain Course News

March 13, 2009

Tony Harris, Head Professional, makes his predictions on the signature holes for the new Valley Course opening this Spring.

  • 3rd hole – dramatic downhill elevation change – so many things can happen on this hole

  • 8th hole – again the elevated tee box shows all the different options – a creek running through the fairway with a huge rock and tree growing out of it, plus lots of craggy rock and bunkers framing the green

  • 13th hole – a great par 4 downhill with water right of the green, and a huge rock touching the left edge of the green

  • 15th hole – long par 5 that crosses a lake twice and finishes in a mini amphitheatre style setting by the time you reach the green

  • 17th hole – solid par 4 framed with trees, crossing a creek to a green with a bunker set right up against the front edge, a view back towards the village, and a waterfall tumbling down from underneath the tee decks
