Jack Nicklaus Helps Reopen Golf Course at Bear Lakes Country Club

By Brian Weis

The Lakes Course at Bear Lakes Country Club has a new look with new challenges. Golf legend Jack Nicklaus helped design the original 18-hole golf course when the club opened in 1984. On Friday, November 19, the first couple of golf cut the yellow ribbon to reopen the renovated course.

The Lakes Course will display a plaque recognizing The Golden Bear for his influence on Bear Lakes Country Club, which features two Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses. Bear Lakes Country Club also honored Jack and Barbara Nicklaus with a donation to support the Nicklaus Children's Health Care Foundation, which helps to provide world-class pediatric care to children locally and globally.
