Golden Bear Golf Club
Sculpted through a distinct landscape of lush pines, mature oaks, and tranquil waterways, Golden Bear Golf Club’s Jack Nicklaus–designed course stretches across 7,014 yards of challenging, scenic terrain. The semiprivate course puts a high premium on precise course management with a parkland-style layout of tight fairways, white-sand bunkers, and omnipresent water hazards that subsist on the life force of ill-struck golf balls. The club’s driving range fosters preround warm-ups, and nimble carts help players complete their rounds more efficiently than piggyback rides from a caddie. Resident aces occupy the club’s pro shop, ready to assist in equipment upgrades or offer up a variety of lessons and services. The club also has stately dining facilities that provide an ideal venue for indoor meatball-putting competitions.
