Jack Nicklaus has spent years searching for the perfect site to bring his dream to a reality. The Bear's Club is the realization of The Golden Bear's decades-old vision of creating a golf club in his own South Florida backyard that reflects his passion for the game. The Bear's Club was named to Travel & Leisure Golf's "America's Top 100 Golf Communities" in 2007 and is recognized as one of the world's elite private club experiences. A number of the best PGA Tour players in the world call The Bear's Club home.
The Loxahatchee Club was created out of his love of the game of golf and follows in the tradition of the finest clubs in the country. The course was designed as a "member's course," with the elements of the old Scottish game mingled with the finest characteristics of modern American golf. Jack says that The Loxahatchee Club "is one of my most imaginative courses and certainly one of the best I have ever done."
