No, but also being real, a hot tub after a long grueling day of disc golf is like the best thing ever. So I'd be tempted. But no, still no.

Haven't been up there in years. Wondering if the shower room up by the bunkhouse
still has the hole in the wall just outside of the water heater where a fella can reach
through and turn the temperature up to hot water?

Did the Bear get a redesign at some point? The hole lengths on dgcr are way different for at least a few of the holes. Are the hole details on the course page just way wrong? Apparently they are from 2012.

Hole 2 is listed as 325' Par 3, but the tee sign pic from 2009 says:



Hole 4 is listed as 569' Par 4, but the tee sign pic from 2009 says:

It's been a minute since I've played The Bear. Fun Fact: The Bear is/was my favorite course played out of the 160ish courses that I've been to.

The hole two sign that you posted is now hole three. AMAZING hole design and hole, w/three good options off of the tee. BRILLIANT!!!

Pretty sure the same is true for hole four sign, it's now hole five?

Fun Fact #2: Current Bear Hole two is the dumbest hole on the course, and one of the dumbest tee shots of any hole I've ever played. A couple of the long tee's at O'Hauser come close. IMO

Fun Fact #3: All of the third holes, on all of the main HB courses, are effing epic holes IMO!

Blueberry 2/3 are such fun shots...not often you get two decent downhill throws in a row!

True story!

Granite #3 another multi-option tee shot, great hole!

Gold #3 yes, another multi-option tee shot, great disc golf hole!

Even Woodland Green #3 is the strongest and best hole on that course, IMO.

Granite 17 & 18 are the reverse of BB 2&3...two decent uphill throws in a row

I always thought parking along Mile Rd and playing Granite starting on 10 was more fun so the climbing holes were earlier in the round. Same idea for Gold and even Blueberry.
