Client Course Description

Bear Creek offers a challenging, 6804-yard, well maintained course, designed by Rees Jones. It has tight, bunkered fairways that weave through Hilton Head Plantation’s pines and lagoons. The fairways are 419 Tifway Bermuda and the newly renovated greens have state of the art, super dwarf TifEagle Bermuda, which was developed for Lowcountry weather and water conditions. The layout is conducive to both walking and the use of golf carts. Number 1 and number 10 tee boxes are at the club house and the distance from greens to the next tee box is short.

Designer Notes

Located within the gates of Hilton Head Plantation, the golf course is framed with grand live oaks and majestic pines.
