The newest addition to the recreational opportunities is “The Bear,” a championship disc golf course that is a “Fierce Adventure.” The 18 holes are situated in the rolling landscape of the main campus at Compass Lake in the Hills. When the Board of Directors voted to create the course, they committed to doing it right. The natural setting was a perfect start. In studying the existing marketplace we learned that most courses are flat with little variation in the topography. Not so at “The Bear.” You start under a pine canopy and then go deeply into the woods. When emerging from the woods you then walk the ridge along the lake shore and return to another wooded section of challenging holes. The last hole is exceptionally long and allows the opportunity to “air it out.”
Most disc courses have a few cement tee boxes, some offer seating and few distinguishability between amateur and professional distances. “The Bear” offers it all. With all cement tee’s, attractive signage, seating at every hole, and a beautiful course.
Registration and league information for Disc Golf is available at the Pro Shop located in the main lodge. Residents and guests can play all day for a minimal cost of just $5 for the public and $4.00 for members. Rental kits are also available at the Pro Shop for $4.00. Starter Kits that include 3 disc are available for the purchase amount of $45.00.
Game hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. seven days a week through Labor Day, and from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. thereafter. Dates and times are subject to change due to popularity and course usage. Click here and download and print your score card or pick one up at the main lodge.
