I remember growing up and watching Jack Nicklaus in the 60's and 70's while marveling at his accomplishments in the 80's and 90's. That is probably why I really appreciate playing Bear's Best.

Jetsetters Magazine Golf MallBear's Best is a cooperative effort between ClubCorp of America and Jack Nicklaus to create a golf experience as great and unprecedented as the Bear himself. You see, Bear's Best takes four decades of PGA championship experience and golf course design, and made 18 exact replicas of his most memorable holes from over 200+ courses he designed globally, and based on elements such as location, climate and terrain. This fluid layout will make the average golfer realize the same swing thoughts as The Bear did during his fabulous career, including the appreciation he had by capturing the feel and challenge of each hole in its original state.

Vegas Show TicketsThe par 72, 7,194-yard tract is only a 20-minute drive from the Las Vegas Strip, providing stunning views in all directions from its elevation of 3,200 feet. Situated just east of the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area along the western side of the Las Vegas Valley, the golf course shares its fairways with The Ridges, a luxury residential village in Summerlin, America=s best-selling master-planned community. The facility itself creates a unique and unforgettable venue for corporate, convention and the incentive marketplace. This dedication to large group play is evidenced by its 75,000 sq. ft practice range (nearly twice the size of most others), a 3,000 sq. ft. indoor pavilion and a 5,000 sq. ft. outdoor pavilion for pre- and post-golf activities.

Bear's Best uses the forecaddie system in every group throughout the round. This adds to the overall ambiance of the course, and captures the dream and fantasies of all with replicated holes


such as Castle Pines No. 14, PGA West Numbers 6 & 10, and Cabo del Sol No. 12.

One of the most fascinating stories of the course lies in two of its holes numbers 7 & 11 - Old Works & Old World #2 respectively with their glistening black-slag bunkers of imported black sand from Montana.

Four holes from Geronimo and Chiricahua designs at Jack's Desert Mountain in Scottsdale, Arizona contains all the details right down to the Saguaro cactus. Hole No. 9, which is a replica of Desert Mountain No.6 at the Geronimo Course is a 453-yard par 4. This lengthy sloping downhill test doglegs to the left. Your tee shot has to be hit on the fairway and avoid the bunker on the left. Your second shot has to fly an arroyo, cut in front of the green and wrap around it to par.

A trademark of Bear's Best is the starting and finishing par fours (1 & 18) with water running the length of the entire fairways. These PGA West (Palm Springs) replicas honor his two designs and brings water into play from both the left (on #1) and the right (on #18). Hole No.18 (PGA West No.18, Palm Springs, California - Resort C

A 450-yard par 4. This strong finishing hole has sand and water along the right side of the fairway. The elevated and sloping green sits right next to the water and is also well bunkered. To stay out of trouble, precise shots are required throughout the length of this great finishing hole.

For more than 30 years, Nicklaus courses have covered nearly every continent, creating the name and reputation of excellence among great golf course architects. In 2001, Jack was recognized with three national awards related to his golf course design work, and in
