A Jack Nicklaus Signature Design, Grand Bear opened in 1999 to widespread fanfare and near universal acclaim. Built six miles into the DeSoto National Forrest, the course offers a seemingly private golf experience as no two holes parallel another, and homes, roads, or other distractions are absent while on property. In its place, the golfer is alone to enjoy the pristine natural environment, where the manicured course conditions meet the towering pines and surrounding cypress wetlands, facing the challenge of the trademark Nicklaus design, while being treated to superior customer service from bag drop at arrival to the warm farewell. Located a mere 35 minutes from the Gulf Coast, Grand Bear offers a respite from the glitz and glow of downtown Biloxi. Complementing the challenging Nicklaus design, Grand Bear offers an immaculate practice facility, and the rustic clubhouse welcomes all with a fully equipped golf shop, and a grill area sure to please. Get away today, and treat yourself to the Grand Bear.
