Welcome to Northern Bear Golf Club, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Course located in Sherwood Park, Alberta, just 30 minutes from downtown Edmonton. Built on Jack Nicklaus’ legendary tradition of designing prestigious and spectacular courses – Northern Bear is the latest Canadian addition to the Nicklaus family of outstanding golf courses.
Northern Bear is Jack’s third Canadian Signature daily fee course, preceded by Toronto’s Glen Abbey and Whistler’s Nicklaus North. The “Bear” is a perfect blend of tree lined fairways, strategic bunker placements, five lakes and USGA standard greens all designed to offer the ultimate in playability to every golf enthusiast.
Despite his stature as a player – Nicklaus designs his courses for players of all skill levels. “Golf is a game of precision not strength” explains Nicklaus. That’s why the course offers five sets of tees ranging from 5,800 to 7,400 yards and is designed to entice novices and experts alike.
