Detailed description of Bear Trace At Harrison Bay State Park

Bear Trace At Harrison Bay State Park, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Harrison, Tennessee.

The Bear Trace At Harrison Bay golf course first opened for play in 1999. The course was designed by Jack Nicklaus.

Located approximately 20 minutes north of downtown Chattanooga, the Bear Trace at Harrison Bay is surrounded by both water and heavily-wooded land, making an ideal setting a nd convenient location for the course. This scenic course sits in Harrison Bay State Park and provides views of the Tennessee River and Lake Chickamauga. Generous fairways lined with trees provide a secluded feel to each hole. The ample greens feature little undulation, making for a true playing surface. Hole #4, a 184-yard, par 3, has the lake extending from tee to green, where it borders three sides.

Although water touches 12 fairways, there is more than sufficient room to hit safely. Most greens are open in front, which makes the course more 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 Bear Trace collection, the emphasis on playability is clearly evident. The Bear Trace at Harrison Bay stretches from 7,140 yards (gold tees) to just under 5,300 yards (red tees).

Gold tees: Par-72, 7,111 yards, 74.9/136

Blue tees: Par-72, 6,545 yards, 71.6/128

White tees: Par-72, 5,972 yards, 68.5/125

Red tees: Par-72, 5,292 yards, 70.3/118

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
