Jack has spent years searching for the perfect site to bring his dream to reality. The search is over. The Bear’s Club is the realization of Jack’s decades-old vision of creating a golf club in his own South Florida backyard that reflects his passion for the game.
The course is covered with old pines and palmettos. There is a 12-foot-high sand ridge running across the site. Jack enhanced it and added a couple of others that look equally natural.

It has high-banked bunkers with a special sand brought in from Ohio; it won’t wash out in a rain shower.
Unlike Muirfield Village, The Bear’s Club is not intended to be a tournament golf course, but is instead a premier private club. And perhaps Jack’s legacy.
