Can’t go south? Tee it up West

Bear Mountain fall and winter package gives locals a premier golf experience

While sojourns south are likely on hold for local snowbirds, that doesn’t mean you need to give up your goal of winter golf!

Even better, you now have the chance to play at a premier local course you may not have played often.

Recognizing that many Capital Region golfers may be looking for a new challenge after a full summer season on their usual fairways – something they usually find playing courses south of the border come winter – Bear Mountain Golf Club has created a unique solution.

Dubbed “The New South” packages, golfers are invited to join Bear Mountain in weathering the ongoing pandemic – staying active outdoors while physically distanced and enjoying a premier golf experience.

“We keep the golf course in the best condition possible through the winter season, keeping play on natural greens as often as we can,” notes Rob Larocque, Director of Golf at Bear Mountain.

Both the Nicklaus Design 18-hole Mountain Course and 9-hole Valley loop are available during winter months, with potential for additional holes opening on the Valley course, depending on the weather.

“We make the winter golf experience as comfortable as we can in one of the few regions in Canada that has golf all year round,” Larocque says, pointing to package features like golf cart covers and heaters, and complimentary hot beverages. The Comfort Station at hole 10 is also available 12 months of the year.

And yes, for those crisp mornings, you’ll even have a Bear Mountain toque to help ward off the cold!

Each New South package includes:

  • Unlimited golf including a shared power cart
  • Unlimited access to the driving range
  • 7-day advance booking
  • Bag Storage
  • 20 per cent off Pro Shop apparel
  • Golf cart covers and heaters
  • Complimentary hot beverages
  • Complimentary toque

Choose from a one-month package for $999, a three-month package for $2,499 or a three-month couples package for $3,750. The packages must be used over consecutive months. While accommodation at the resort is not included, options are available.
