The Bear is back and golfers are happy

New ownership with a focused direction on bringing a well known golf facility back to life is proving to be a successful recipe for the Northern Bear Golf Club.

One of a few Jack Nicklaus-designed tracks in Western Canada, Northern Bear is seeing players coming out in droves, said Executive Professional Blair McDowell. And, he notes, those teeing it up at this track located just east of Sherwood Park, are pleased to find the course is a fine test for their game.

“I don’t think there was ever a doubt it wouldn’t come back but ultimately we are excited for the new owner and what we have planned for the future,” he stated about Fort McMurray’s Irv Williams now holding the ownership reins.

“Our last couple of months here have been extremely busy. We haven’t changed much of anything, other than some sight lines,” McDowell continued about what’s transpired since Williams purchased The Bear. “We’ve put some more sand into the bunkers and we’ll do some work on the cart paths soon. The course is in very good shape and that’s ultimately why we’re busy.”

This is a big track from the back tees, make no mistake about that. From the furthest reaches it plays to over 7,300 yards and scales down from there with six tees in all making the course an enjoyable play for everyone.

“We continue to hear from amateurs and professionals that they believe this is probably one of the best layouts in town. It’s in good condition and we’re changing the level of service to make sure we’re providing first-class service,” both on and off this great course, McDowell ended.
