Golf Course Information
A Jack Nicklaus Signature Design, Grand Bear Golf Club opened in 1999 to widespread fanfare and near universal acclaim.
Built six miles into the DeSoto National Forrest, the course offers a seemingly private golf experience as no two holes parallel another, and homes, roads, or other distractions are absent while on property. In its place, the golfer is alone to enjoy the pristine natural environment, where the manicured course conditions meet the towering pines and surrounding cypress wetlands, facing the challenge of the trademark Nicklaus design, while being treated to superior customer service from bag drop at arrival to the warm farewell.
Visit the friendly and helpful bartenders in the Grand Bear’s Bar & Grill and have our wonderful chef make you a delicious breakfast or lunch. Or just relax after your round with a satisfying cocktail. We have a full selection of beers as well.
Formerly a casino golf property of gaming giant Caesars Entertainment (Harrah's Gulf Coast), as of 2017 Grand Bear is now owned and operated by VICI Properties, Inc.
