COURSE INFORMATION

A JACK NICKLAUS DESIGN

Towering pines, natural cypress wetlands, secluded fairways and impeccably manicured greens surround Grand Bear. This 18-hole, Jack Nicklaus Signature Course has the feel of Augusta and the excitement of Pinehurst.

A wide array of hole layouts makes Grand Bear challenging, yet enjoyable for all. From the Grizzly Bear tees at 7,204 yards, the challenge is firm but fair; from the Teddy Bear tees at 4,802 yards, the layout is downright cuddly.

The outgoing nine, which skirts the Little Biloxi River has superior golf holes, but the back nine is truly grand. Cypress wetlands rimmed with live oaks, gum trees, and old magnolias give way to the Big Biloxi River, its brilliant white-sand banks girding three of the last four holes.

For the enjoyment of all guests, 18 hole rounds at the Grand Bear should not exceed four hours and 30 minutes or 15 minutes a hole. If your group cannot play at this pace, you will be asked to speed up.  If you are warned a second time, you may be told to skip holes to get back on pace. If a group receives a third warning, you will be asked to leave the course and no rain checks will be issued.

Groups of five are allowed at the Grand Bear but they must adhere to a more strict pace of play policy.  Groups of five only receive one warning at which point they will be asked to skip holes to get on pace.  If a group of five receives a second warning, they will be asked to leave the course and no rain checks will be issued.

If, on the rare occasion the Grand Bear is Cart Path Only, any groups that are observed driving the golf carts off the cart path will be asked to leave the course with no rain checks given.

If the course is deemed to be unplayable or if play is suspended due to inclement weather, both of which is at the sole discretion of Grand Bear Golf Course management, rain checks may be issued upon request as follows:

If three holes or fewer are completed, players will be issued a 18 hole rain check. If 12 holes or fewer are completed, players will be issued a nine hole rain check. No rain checks will be issued after a group has begun play on the 13th hole. No rain checks will be issued to guests that have pre-paid their greens fees to golfnow.com. Rain checks are valid for one year from the date of issue and have no cash value.No refunds will be given if the players have teed off of the first hole.
