When Great Bear Golf Club (formerly Great Bear Golf & CC) opened in 1997 it was the lone Jack Nicklaus Signature Design in an area renowned for legendary names like Hagen, Sarazen, Snead and Palmer rolling through town playing golf. It also immediately became one of the northeast's most talked about new designs.
Great Bear boasts an armload of honors: Top 20 Best Golf Courses in Pennsylvania from Golf Digest, Top 8 Best Courses in Pennsylvania from Golfweek, and Top 100 US Women Friendly Courses from Golf for Women.
Now, Great Bear shares an owner with nearby Shawnee Country Club, an original A.W. Tillinghast design that is part of The Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort. The historic Resort offers value-packed stay-and-play packages at what many consider the finest two golf courses in the region.
Great Bear boasts appealing membership offers and incentives, memorable group golf outing opportunities and daily fee values.
