Home to the first Jack Nicklaus signature golf course on the West Coast of Florida, the Bear's Paw Country Club is an 18-hole layout open to members and their guests, renters, and reciprocal clubs. Niklaus deem the par 72 routing "one of the most playable, yet challenging and fun courses" he's been a part of.

At Bear's Paw Country Club, golfers are eased into the round with a fairly straight par 4 measuring 365-yards from the Paw Tee. The ideal placement for a tee shot is on the right side of the fairway, avoiding the two left side fairway bunkers and providing players a short approach shot to a receptive green that slopes from back to front.

The elevation changes at Bear's Paw's 7,067-yard distance is a tricky challenge for beginners. Thus, a teaching pro is there to help those who need guidance and hone their skills as professional golfers. 

The expansive driving range, chipping green, and putting green within the club allow golfers of all skill levels to refine their technique before teeing off. These on-site practice facilities ensure residents can hone their game at their convenience. The friendly staff can also readily assist them with any needs, including cart and club rentals, for a smooth and enjoyable golfing experience.

In 2015, the members of Bear's Paw determined that it was time for a complete restoration of the signature golf course. Thanks to architects Jay Morrish and Thomas Pearson, almost all original greens and bunkers were replaced to achieve that pristine condition of fairways and tees. The routing delivered a completely new golf course that is more interesting, fun, and playable for all skill levels.

Apart from the new, excellent conditions of the greens, an improved informal dining space was also opened at Bear's Paw Country Club. The private dining rooms create dedicated areas for formal dining and more flexibility for the many popular private gatherings, luncheons, dinners, cocktail receptions and meetings, and special interest clubs that are growing in size and scope.
