Las Vegas, Nevada (November 10, 2010)–Bear's Best Las Vegas golf course is made up of 18 holes designed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus, with each hole hand-picked by he and his team from the hundreds he has designed from across the globe. The course has been voted "Best Las Vegas golf course" in newspaper polls, and the management gets involved in the community, most notably by supporting UNLV athletics. And in November and December, any active or inactive military personnel who show up at Bear's Best Las Vegas with a ticket stub from a UNLV basketball or football game and their military ID will earn a free round of golf. –Staff report.
“We feel like this program is a perfect fit for us because Las Vegas has voted us the No. 1 golf course the past two seasons, Coach (Lon) Kruger and Coach (Bobby) Hauck are working toward making their programs No. 1, and hands down, the U.S. Military is No. 1 at what they do,” said Jim Stanfill, Bear’s Best Las Vegas General Manager.

The Charity Classic is ClubCorp’s annual charity event where nearly 150 golf and country clubs and business and sports clubs in the ClubCorp family of clubs open their courses and dining rooms to an estimated 25,000 members, guests and patrons for tournaments, dining events, auctions and social extravaganzas around the country. Since its inception in 2007, ClubCorp’s Charity Classic has raised nearly $5 million benefiting charities including MDA’s Augie’s Quest, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Boys and Girls Clubs, and the Employee Partners Care Foundation. In addition to benefitting MDA’s Augie’s Quest and ClubCorp’s Employee Partners Care Foundation, the “Longest day of Golf” will also benefit MDA Las Vegas.
