My expectations were low going in. Then, I drove up to the club house and it is right on a main drag at the Lake . . . AND, it appeared to be in a strip mall. I was momentarily confused and dazed. Was this a REAL golf course or a mini-golf and go-cart “Lake of the Ozarks” kind of thing? SCREEEEEEEEECH!!!!!!! Yeah, not even close. This may be controversial, but Bear Creek Valley Golf Club at the Lake of the Ozarks is now one of my favorite golf courses in Missouri. It is a little funky but I loves me some funk. This beautifully lush and green course is probably the hilliest in the state, which makes for some very interesting and fun holes. It is also one of the most manicured courses in the state. It looks like they hire meticulous Japanese artists to trim each of the green fringes with tiny scissors. The greens are large with medium complexity. Most holes are not contiguous so dense woods and trees flank each fairway. Because of the massive hills, it would be wise to play with someone familiar with the course who can assist with club selection. Or, just play it again and again and again. It is probably not everyone’s cup of tea but it is worth playing if you are at the Lake.
