Course Overview

The second course in The Bear Traces to open, Harrison Bay is a true classic and quite possibly the crown jewel of the entire collection. This Bear Trace is surrounded by both water and heavily wooded land, making an ideal setting for the course. Harrison Bay stretches from 7,140 yards (championship tees) to just under 5,300 yards (forward tees).

The Bear Trace at Harrison Bay features Bermuda fairways lined with soaring pine and hardwood trees. Although water touches 12 fairways, there is more than sufficient room to hit safely. Most greens are open in front, which makes the course user-friendly for high-handicap players and allows run-up shots. Fairway and green side bunkers are designed in the traditional Nicklaus fashion and add notable character to the overall integrity of the course. Like other courses in the collection, the emphasis on playability is clearly evident.
