Course Overview

Jack has spent years searching for the perfect site to bring his dream to reality. The search is over. The Bear's Club is the realization of Jack's decades-old vision of creating a golf club in his own South Florida backyard that reflects his passion for the game.

The course is covered with old pines and palmettos. There is a 12-foot-high sand ridge running across the site. Jack enhanced it and added a couple of others that look equally natural. He integrated the design into the environment by retaining native brush wherever possible, separated from playing areas by transition areas of sand and pine straw. It has high-banked bunkers with a special sand brought in from Ohio; it won't wash out in a rain shower.

Unlike Muirfield Village, The Bear's Club is not intended to be a tournament golf course, but is instead a premier private club. And perhaps Jack's legacy.
