Bear's Best Golf Course

Bear’s Best Golf Club

Now when you play golf in Las Vegas you can experience 18 of Jack Nicklaus’ favorite holes when you tee it up at Bear’s Best Las Vegas. This Las Vegas resort golf course features 18 holes that have re-created the holes from some of the Golden Bear’s best golf courses. Bear’s Best Las Vegas features holes from Cabo Del Sol, PGA West, Castle Pines and Old Works, among others, and each hole is the home of the unique design elements that make the original memorable.

There’s palm trees and water from PGA West in Palm Desert; there’s black slag bunkers from Old Works in Montana; there’s pine trees and elevation change from Castle Pines in Colorado; and there’s an abundance of the exceptional golf architecture that Mr. Nicklaus has become known for on the more than 225 golf courses he’s designed around the world. Nicklaus once said that the selection process to choose holes to replicate at Bear’s Best Las Vegas was more difficult than creating a new course from scratch. Fortunately for golfers, the end result creates a truly unique Las Vegas/Nicklaus golf experience.

“Bear’s Best Las Vegas is more like a special event than a just a round of golf because you have something new and unique to look forward to on each and every hole,” says Head Professional Byron Cone. “Mr. Nicklaus hand-picked the holes from his many amazing golf courses to replicate here, and you get to experience many exceptional golf courses in one, 18-hole Las Vegas golf journey. This fantasy round of golf takes you from Vegas to Cabo San Lucas, to Montana, to California and many points in between.”


“I can’t really put my finger on it but I really enjoy golfing here. There isn’t 1 specific thing that I can point out that is great but overall, this course is top notch. It’s a right mix of great condition, and great layout.”

Course management is always creating different ways for players to enjoy the round, from filling every cart with state-of-the-art GPS systems complete with personal video from Nicklaus that clicks on at each tee box to Bear’s Best Thirst Aid, a new beverage cart experience that features blended margaritas, custom Bloody Mary drinks and a whole lot of Las Vegas golf flare. Bear’s Best Las Vegas also features a complete clubhouse, restaurant and meeting space that is perfect for weddings, company meetings, parties, and golf tournament receptions.
