Located just minutes south of Denver, Golf Club at Bear Dance is a secluded mountain course that feels as though you drove miles to get there. The rolling terrain of the golf course has numerous elevation changes and challenging ridges that come into play. The scenic landscape is covered with dense groves of ponderosa pine, towering oak trees, and native grass valleys. The generous fairways are lined with trees and water hazards come into play on a few holes. Golf Club at Bear Dance demands accuracy, providing a formidable test for any golfer. One of the most notably difficult holes is the par-4 sixth, which features a bear paw-shaped bunker in front of the green. In addition to the challenging round, the back nine faces the mountains in the West, offering amazing views.

    It's a scenic mountain style course and very unforgiving. Lots of wooded area around fairways. Marshals can be ridiculous. Very good apres golf service. Prices are competitive-high and, with the drive, it will not be an every week affair for most. Believe they are trying to cater to members AMAP.

    The pro ruined our experience and did not do anything to help the situation when we decided to just leave. Their club players take priority over your tee time apparently? Don't know why we even reserve tee times. Won't go back.

    The course was great but the marshall was ridiculous and totally ruined the round. I am a fast player and certainly understand their job. However, we were 2 holes in front of the group behind us so decided to take our time a bit, look for golf balls for a few minutes, enjoy the scenery. Well, Barney Fife told us 4 times we were a hole and a half behind. We could catch up to the group in front of us (and did a few times) and wait but whats the point when nobody is behind you. Totally uncalled for harassment.

    Although I have not played this course yet, I attended a charity event last week that was marvelous! The Band was fantastic, the course was so green I thought I was in Fairy Land..seriously.

    What a wonderful staff as well.

    Even a vegetarian like myself has a great meal, and the dancing was so fun!

    I can hardly wait to go back.

    Entire course just aerated. Greens in very poor condition - couldn't hit the ball hard enough to get to the hole. Tee boxes in poor condition. Fairways had many brown areas and hard-pan.

    Too bad they haven't taken better care of the course since the layout is generally good and scenery is very nice.

    Great course, awesome staff. The prices are reasonable, even on weekends. I think their pricess are what makes them a better play than the ridge at castle pines and equally if not better course.

    My favorite course I've played in Colorado. Wonderful course, terrific staff, a great time. Each hole is secluded and unique. You feel like you are the only people on the course.
