I expect this property has been around a long time. Some rough areas however, overall the updates are acceptable. Would like to visit again in the future.

Every hole on the Legend seems to be different, and presents a risk/reward option for players of all abilities. Cedar River is very playable with relatively wide fairways that are tree-lined. Both have large greens and are well-maintained. Schuss is an older and more traditional...More

Played on The Bear as a package with the hotel. The service in the pro shop, Clubhouse Grill and starters were just excellent. Great staff. As for The Bear being an 'elite' course, I'd say it's good but not great.

I've always been a big fan of the three courses at Grand Traverse, and they are always in great shape. The Bear is a Jack Nicklaus designed course that used to host the Michigan Open. From the back tees, it's a VERY difficult course. Even...More
