Big Bear Lake, Calif.—Bear Mountain Golf Course, owned and operated by Big Bear Mountain Resorts, is a 9-hole public golf course situated in a beautiful valley overlooking fragrant, towering pines and deep blue skies.  With the dry mountain air perfectly tempered for your next game of golf, locals say that the 7,000 foot mountain elevation actually allows your ball to fly further, thus improving your score.

Though Bear Mountain Golf Course is not open during the ski season (December through April), for seven months out of the year you can enjoy playing this mountain gem again and again. On a recent visit, one San Diego reporter played the course three times in three days. He loved the setting and the new course improvements that included $100,000 in upgrades in 2005.  Coming from some of the world's top golf clubs that San Diego enjoys, that's quite a compliment.

The largest improvement project in the history of the Bear Mountain Golf Course included complete new greens and sand traps on holes 3 and 8, a new tee-box on hole 3 that adds 40 yards from the blue markers, a new elevated tee-box and driving range improvements. A grand stone entrance to the course with a paved walkway from the clubhouse to hole 1 provides a country club setting for the only public golf course in the Big Bear Valley.

The Bear Mountain Golf Course also offers golfers the perfect opportunity to practice driving and chipping the ball. A 300-yard driving range is located on the north end of the golf course. The range hut can be seen from Club View Drive and parking is available off to the side of the street next to the sixth fairway.

Owned and operated by Snow Summit Ski Corporation, parent company of Big Bear Mountain Resorts consisting of Bear Mountain Resort and Snow Summit Mountain Resort, the golf club is located at the base of Snow Summit Ski Resort. Operating under a San Bernardino National Forest special use permit, during the winter snow and ski season the clubhouse transforms to a ski school. Set at the base of Bear Mountain Resort in the Moonridge meadow, Bear Mountain clubhouse offers a pro-shop during the summer months, plus the Bear Trap restaurant in addition to club and cart rentals. Golf lessons are offered as well. Pro-shop:  (909) 585-8002.
