The Bear's Club

The Bear's Club Profile


FROM THE MOMENT you walk in the front door or the clubhouse, Jack and Barbara's influence on the design and decor is evident...from the grandeur of the Foyer, to the relaxing Library, Lounge and Dining Room, Locker Rooms and Golf Shop, comfort, elegance and relaxation surround you.


THE BEAR'S CLUB was founded in 1999 by Jack and Barbara Nicklaus and was conceived to offer members and their guests a world-class golf and club experience. It is the fulfillment of a decades old vision of Jack Nicklaus to develop the finest possible private golf club for those who share his passion for the game of golf.

The Bear’s Club is a non-equity, private golf club located on approximately 270-acres in Jupiter, Florida and was formed by thirty-five Founding Partners, including Jack Nicklaus, who is Chairman of the Board of the club.

To preserve the integrity of the golfing experience at The Bear's Club, Jack has designed a golf course that winds through a very natural setting of Cypress, Pine and Oak trees. The golf course has been designed to suit players of all levels, while offering a challenge to better players. Additionally, there is a 9-Hole Par 3 course that is available as well.

The clubhouse is elegant, gracious and unusual for Florida. The décor is Tuscan in design with rich, dark woods and stone defining the Mediterranean architecture. The dining rooms are residential in nature and comfortable for entertaining with friends and associates. Located adjacent to the men’s locker room are four Guest Suites and, in addition to these rooms, there are two 4-bedroom Cottages available for short term stay.  They are located next to the clubhouse, overlooking the golf course.

Membership is by invitation only.
