Marshalls Creek Course Layout

Here amid the rugged beauty of Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains lies a private golf retreat of unsurpassed quality, offering new levels of luxury, comfort and convenience previously unavailable in this world-renowned Pennsylvania resort area. Once you have taken in the natural beauty here and played the spectacular golf course designed by the Golden Bear himself, Jack Nicklaus, Great Bear Golf and Country Club will entice you to return again and again.

Great Bear Golf and Country Club is the only Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course in the region. Jack Nicklaus and his team individually sculptured all of the 18 holes through thick forests with no parallel fairways. The course features beautiful vistas of the Pocono Mountains, generous ball landing areas, contoured greens, strategic bunkering and challenging elevation changes.
