Bear Trap Dunes Golf Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1999

Bear Trap Dunes Golf Club is home to a well-rated and pleasantly testing 27-hole golf course that comprises the Grizzly, Kodiak and Black Bear nines. The course is located in the state of Delaware, a 30-minute drive north of Ocean City (which is across the stateline in Maryland).

This inland links-style layout should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Holes like the long par-3 3rd on the Black Bear nine will test your nerve, with water dangerously in play on your right. A hole-in-one here is certainly one to savour.

Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.
