Jack Nicklaus Design has crafted a 1,932-yard, par-29 course for Bear Lake Reserve, a resort community in Tuckasegee, N.C. The family-friendly, nine-hole layout in the development, located 55 miles east of Asheville, opened July 5. "We want to encourage not only parents to play this great game, but also their kids," said Bo Alexander, superintendent and director of golf at Bear Lake Reserve. "Bear Lake Reserve offers an inviting golf experience that the entire family can enjoy without feeling intimidated." Summit Golf Course features seven par-3s and two par-4s suitable for beginners and children learning the game. It also has a comprehensive practice facility. The course offers views of the surrounding mountains and forest, while golfers share the fairways with deer, foxes and wild turkeys. Summit was laid out to fit into the natural environs of Bear Lake Reserve. Its fairways wind around forested areas with minimal disruption to the terrain, resulting in a course where golf and nature peacefully co-exist.
