Bear's Best, Jack Nicklaus design near Atlanta
The Bear's Best golf course near Atlanta already has a lot going for it. It's a Jack Nicklaus design, of course, a compilation of 18 of his favorite holes from his more than 200 layouts. But this is no mere replica course. This is top-notch golf entertainment, a big, challenging track where even the impressive million-dollar homes take a back seat to Nicklaus' showcase.
Elevation gives this upscale public course its architectural and strategic energy. You'll be hitting uphill and downhill pretty much all day, and rarely off an even lie. The course is so good as a whole that the holes' origins become secondary. Not surprisingly, there isn't a weak one in the bunch. Bear's Best requires a variety of shots and will keep you engaged throughout the round.
