“This Jack Nicklaus designed course is a true gem. Fantastic layout in perfect condition. Not a boring hole in the 18. Super friendly staff,"
— Chuck H, Long Valley, NJ

Dear Outings Coordinator:
The golf outing – that once-a-year opportunity to thank your staff, treat your clients or raise money for your charity. There’s too much at stake to leave anything to chance. That’s why golf outing coordinators through the region entrust us here at Great Bear Golf Club to handle their outings.

We couldn't think of one good reason why you should host your next golf outing at Great Bear Golf Club. We thought of several!

As hospitality experts with a ton of successful outings under our belts, rest assured that your outing here at Great Bear will come off without a hitch. Here are some of the specific reasons why:

Play a Jack Nicklaus “Signature” course, the only one in the area

You don’t have to be a PGA pro to know the name Jack Nicklaus. It’s synonymous with golf excellence. Great Bear was designed by “The Golden Bear” himself. This is your one-in-three chance to play a Nicklaus course in the entire state; the only one in the area.

Challenging golf for your better players, fun for the duffers

The reality of golf outings is this: everyone participating in your outing isn’t going to be a great golfer. Great Bear offers a great challenge for the better golfers and while the duffers won’t set any course records, they’ll sure have fun in a gorgeous setting.

Our clubhouse is big but friendly

Our beautiful, 17,000 square-foot clubhouse here at Great Bear is home to amazing dining establishments, and will act as the hub of all of your outing activity.

Food. Glorious food!

Speaking of two amazing dining establishments, our professionally-trained food and beverage personnel can prepare whatever you need – from box lunches to casual dinners to sit-down banquets.

A great locale for golf

While Great Bear is secluded and providing tranquil golf, we’re also conveniently located. If those two things don’t seem like they go together, you haven’t seen Great Bear!

Full and complete golf shop

We can make your duffers look like touring pros, and your best golfers will find any- and everything they need in our full and complete golf shop.
