Bear Trap Dunes Golf Club offers one of the area's most unique and memorable golf experiences on the Eastern Shore and is located in Ocean View, Delaware, just 3 miles west of Bethany Beach. Winding bentgrass fairways are lined with native wetland grasses that drift into stunning sand dunes on this natural golf course. Impeccably groomed oversized greens and four strategically placed sets of tees beckon golfers of every skill level. After just a few minutes at this facility, you will see why these 27 holes of scenic beauty are the locals' favorite.

A former associate of Jack Nicholas, course architect Rick Jacobson has won acclaim for his course designs. In Rick’s own words, “Bear Trap Dunes is visually unique because of its ample use of sand dunes – adhering to the coastal area’s natural terrain. Because of strategically placed dunes, grassy hollows, bunkers and water hazards, players will have to ‘think’ their way through each hole."
