At The Bear’s Club, a golf community featuring less than 100 homes, nestled among 369 immaculate sylvans, sandy acres a mile from the Atlantic, Nicklaus expertly transformed the native environment with his exacting standards of design. The result is a gently rolling 7,164-yard layout that exudes a Lowcountry feel as it moves through a property rich in native vegetation, old oaks, pines, cypress trees and wetlands areas. Complementing the 18-hole championship course is the Jack Nicklaus Performance Solutions academy, featuring state-of-the-art technology not seen at other private clubs. There is also a par-3 course that offers a mix of challenges ranging from 100 to 180 yards.
The rest of the property is equally impressive. Barbara Nicklaus partnered with her husband to hone the Mediterranean design that ties together the clubhouse with the residential community. The massive golf headquarters, which sprawls more than 64,000 square feet on two levels, is a bastion of splendor. The interior design, to which Barbara lent her tastes, radiates an unmistakable warmth.
While the upper level contains the main dining room, private dining area, mixed grill, and lounge, the lower level features a spacious central meeting area accommodating a men’s grill that feeds into five individual locker areas outfitted with their own bathrooms, showers, and Jacuzzi, along with steam and massage rooms.
Out-of-town members or their guests can also utilize four elegant one-bedroom suites named for four of Nicklaus’ favorite addresses in golf: Pebble Beach, Augusta National, St. Andrews, and Muirfield, the Scottish links where he won the 1966 British Open to complete the career Grand Slam. Property owners can retire to luxurious homes; residential options include 17 golf villas, 14 club cottages, and 57 estate homes built in Tuscan and French-provincial styles. Prices start at $3 million. Membership is not required.
