Our Story

This Is Where It All Began

The dream of Bearpath Golf & Country Club became a reality in August of 1996. Plans were made, ground was broken, and we now enjoy a beautiful community with all of the amenities you could imagine. Jack Nicklaus, one of the world's premier golf course designers, has created a picturesque and challenging golf course of the highest quality. It is his influence and his passion for excellence that has greatly influenced and inspired the development of Bearpath Golf & Country Club. Each component of this remarkable Club has been meticulously designed and programmed to uphold the tradition of quality set by Jack Nicklaus and the clubs that carry the signature of golf's greatest golfer. Our mission is to create a unique family - oriented atmosphere, which recognizes and serves its members with a standard of quality, which consistently exceeds their expectations.


“I like to make people think when they play golf. That would be my stamp on this course.”
​​​​​​​~ JACK NICKLAUS

From Then to Now

It is hard to believe, but more than 25 years have passed since Jack Nicklaus played his inaugural round of golf at Bearpath. We have connected with thousands of families to provide community, competition and celebration.

Our Future

Our goal is to continue to build deep connections in our Bearpath family and exceed expectations! We will be introducing new events, opportunities, and atmospheres to cultivate community.
