Our award winning championship course

A beautiful 18 hole, par 70 course, covering over 157 acres of true natural authentic golf, measuring 6,450 yards in length.

Bear on the Mountain golf course is a hidden gem with an element of exclusivity and allure. What makes the property unique is the location nestled in the heart of the Eastern UP. Having been known as Hessel Ridge for the past 20 years, the property has a long and storied history in the golfing community. The acquisition of the property by the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians adds a unique cultural aspect to the golfing experience, making it more than just a golf course; it indicates a commitment to preserving and sharing the rich and natural heritage of the land.

Covering over 157 acres of true natural authentic golf, this 18-hole course measures 6,450 yards in length and is attractive choice for beginner to high-skilled players. It plays to heavy dog leg fairways, plush greens, and densely tree-lined fairways making it a challenging yet manageable game. The tree lined fairway not only enhance the scenic beauty of the course but also pose a unique challenge to golfers. The strategic placement of trees requires precision in approach shots, adding an extra layer of skill and strategy to the game. It’s no wonder why Bear on the Mountain is the UPs best kept hidden secret.

We welcome golfers who are looking for a unique and true golfing experience
