Fabulous layout. Excellent condition, especially the greens. Beautiful desert terrain and views to match. It will be our number one choice for the Vernon area now. One thing though - get a bell for the 14th fairway! Too many near misses there....
Course is nice - very pretty and well maintained but found the day to be very slow. overall i would rate it a 7 out of 10.

Good Morning Danny I'm so sorry to not have reply to you guys sooner. This as been one of the best golf vacations we had. We where very happy about the services at Bear Mountain Resort and the pro shop for both locations. They where extremely professional and make us feel so welcome. I can guarantee we will be booking another trip with BC golf guide and we will tell all our friends as well. Thanks for everything M
Hi Danny, Overall, the Victoria golf trip was very good. The accommodations at the Delta were exceptional as always and the proximity to downtown Victoria was great. Bear Mountain- Mountain and Valley courses were in great shape. The only downside was that their new GPS system could not perform the tournament function that the older one had. The staff was good (even on Saturday when they were hosting a major event). Highland Pacific Golf was very good. Everyone enjoyed the course and the staff was very willing to accommodate all of our needs. Okay, now for the transportation. This is the third time that we have used Wilson's for transportation. The drivers are very particular on their schedules and rules. As in the past, we have asked to have the driver stop at a liquor store after our first round so that we could fill up for the trip. Every time, it is a struggle to get them to stop and when they do, they get agitated. As well, we did have a few pops on the bus after the game and this was a contentious issue as well (I understand that this is a law and can appreciate that). I had talked to the driver after our first round that was finished at 5:50 and we were scheduled to leave at 6. We wanted to have one refreshment and he was very leery of that. We ended up getting on the bus at 6:15 after having him hover around our table. In the end, we did not end up tipping the driver(s) and this is the first time that our group has ever done that. We do a rotation between Kelowna, Victoria, and Las Vegas and have never had issues with any other companies except for Wilson. I can't recall the driver that we had in Kelowna last year (Foot note for our readers - It was Falcon Shuttle - Tom the owner /operator) but he was excellent and we tipped him exceptionally. The same can be said about Las Vegas. Everyone in the group is very respectful of the cities and services that we visit and use and by no means do we view this as a free for all. We like to have a good time and when companies treat us well, we treat them well. That was the only issue Danny, everything else was great. Las Vegas is on for next year in later September or October. I did book it through another company previously but if you can make the arrangements, we would use BC Golf. On that trip, we would probably do an airfare/hotel/transportation/golf package. Thanks for all of you help, your effort was noted by everyone.
