About Bear Creek Golf World, Challenger Course, CLOSED 2017

Bear Creek Golf World is a 54-hole public golf facility located in Houston, Texas. The facility has three 18-hole golf courses. They are: The Masters Course, The Presidents Course, and The Challenger Course.

Each course at Bear Creek Golf World provides a good test for every skill level.

This is a great course for someone who is learning the game. It has water & sand. The 18th hole is a par 5, over 500 yds and water. It's a challenge once you tee off to see how far you can get before you must hit over the water.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
