Pennsylvania Golf School

The Great Bear Club is recognized as one of Pennsylvania’s best golf courses and is set in the stunning surrounds of the Poconos. Named for its legendary designer, Jack Nicklaus, this Championship course is both aesthetically stunning and a great test of your game making it the perfect venue for your Pennsylvania golf school.

Great Bear is easily accessed from major cities like New York (80 miles) or Philadelphia (110 miles), and is a perfect summer and fall location for your golf school. 

Nicklaus has taken the natural beauty of the region and seamlessly integrated that into his design. Blending his design with the three lakes, several streams, wetlands, small bridges and rolling terrain, Great Bear Club presents itself differently to golfers of varying skill levels.

There are five sets of tee boxes and the course can be played from 4,949 yards to 7,045 yards so it can be a test for the most experienced golfer while being very playable, for those new to the game. Bird Golf students enjoy superb, private practice facilities to hone their skills.  

Golden Bear has been the recipient of several accolades and awards including being named as Golf Digest’s, “Top 20 Golf Courses in Pennsylvania”, Golfweek’s “Top 8 Best Courses in Pennsylvania” and Golf For Women’s “Top 100 Women Friendly Courses in the Country”.
