About Us

Tradition Redefined

"Bear Lakes, over the decades, has been known as a 'golfer's club,' with a membership that might have boasted one of the lowest handicaps in Palm Beach County, and a golf facility that has hosted everything from U.S. Open qualifiers to a PGA TOUR Qualifying School to a variety of local and state championships. However, Bear Lakes never lost sight of the importance of family and being a club that emphasizes activities for mom, dad, and kids of all ages. I'm proud of what we contributed to the golf and legacy of Bear Lakes, and I am delighted to witness the club's evolution for its current and future generations of members."

– Jack Nicklaus


Bear Lakes Country Club, located in sunny West Palm Beach, Florida, offers sought-after luxury in a convenient location. Just minutes from I-95, Palm Beach International Airport, downtown West Palm Beach, Singer Island and the island of Palm Beach, you'll find a welcoming environment that blends sports, family, and community.

A Bear Lakes membership is a well-deserved reward. Whether your passion is golf, tennis, social, or all the above, you'll fit right into the active lifestyle at Bear Lakes Country Club. Members at Bear Lakes enjoy two, world-class Jack Nicklaus Signature courses, immaculate tennis courts, a junior Olympic-sized pool, and a social calendar full of events. Our recently renovated and modern, 22,000-square-foot clubhouse, with a panoramic view of the Lakes Course, is the perfect place to relax and engage in conversation.

Bear Lakes is a golfer's dream, with two world-class Jack Nicklaus Signature courses. The Lakes Course – Parkland Style and the Links Course – Links style course, offering two unique playing experiences. Our Golf amenities also include a double-sided driving range, four practice greens, and a teaching facility. No matter your handicap, there is always a game available for you in our daily organized game run by our friendly and welcoming professional golf staff, and with an atmosphere that will make us your home away from home.

Off the courts and courses, you'll find a variety of venues to gather with friends and enjoy exceptional food and a social calendar filled with activities for the entire family. The newly renovated clubhouse was designed to accommodate a panoramic view of the 9th and 18th holes of the Lakes golf course.

Our members also enjoy a dynamic tennis program with six Har-Tru tennis courts, a poolside Tiki Bar, and three unique dining experiences in our newly renovated 22,000 square foot clubhouse. Bear Lakes provides a traditional private member club experience that has been redefined for today's lifestyle.

Our Tradition is built on providing a unique member experience. Enjoy a round of golf, play or watch a tennis match, lounge by the pool, or participate in our full calendar of golf, tennis, dining, and social events with friends and family. At Bear Lakes, you'll find all the amenities to indulge your interests and cultivate relationships. Once you experience it, you'll find that there's no place that you'd rather be.

Established in 1984, Bear Lakes proudly honors our history while adapting to meet the needs of our members. That's why we say, Bear Lakes is "Tradition Redefined".
