Home to the first and only Nicklaus Design golf course on Vancouver Island, Bear Mountain Resort stands apart as one of the finest golf resorts anywhere. It's Jack and Steve Nicklaus Co-designed Mountain Course is an 18-hole, 7,212-yard par-72 course that excites scratch golfers and challenges novices. The course is carved from naturally rugged terrain with dramatic changes in elevation and slope. Tall pines, firs and arbutus trees, jutting rocks, rivers, and valleys distinguish the courses and offer the perfect backdrop for stunning views of surrounding snow-capped peaks, the coastline and Victoria Harbour. The resort expanded its exceptional golf in June 2009 with the opening of the Nicklaus Design Valley Course. This 18-hole, par-71 championship course measures approximately 6807 yards. The Valley Course plays at a lower elevation than the Mountain Course it alternates between 300 and 400 feet above sea level compared to the 1100 feet that the Mountain Course rises to at its peak. The Valley Course is slightly more forgiving than its sister, featuring wider fairways and larger greens.
