Jack Nicklaus created a renowned golf club near his South Florida home that is both a celebration of his achievements in the game and a special retreat for members and their guests. He made his dream a reality in 1999 with the creation of The Bear’s Club in Jupiter, and he spared no expense to create another seminal golf experience.
At The Bear’s Club, a golf community nestled among 369 immaculate forested acres a mile from the Atlantic, Nicklaus expertly transformed the native environment with his exacting standards of design. The result is a gently rolling 7,164-yard layout that exudes a Lowcountry feel as it moves through a property rich in native vegetation, old oaks, pines, cypress trees and wetlands areas.
Barbara Nicklaus partnered with her husband to hone the Mediterranean design that ties together the clubhouse with the residential community. The massive golf headquarters, which sprawls more than 64,000 square feet on two levels, is a bastion of splendor. The interior design, to which Barbara lent her tastes, radiates an unmistakable warmth enhanced by woven rugs, decorative pieces of ceramic and porcelain, original artwork, and elegant fabrics and patterns.
Out-of-town members or their guests can also utilize four elegant one-bedroom suites named for four of Nicklaus’ favorite addresses in golf: Pebble Beach, Augusta National, St. Andrews and Muirfield, the Scottish links where he won the 1966 British Open to complete the career Grand Slam. Property owners can retire to luxurious homes; residential options include 17 golf villas, 14 club cottages and 57 estate homes built in Tuscan and French-provincial styles.
