When you land at Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport, you're landing at the home of Jerry World, Nike Golf's The Oven facility and Bear Creek Golf Club. Golf Advisor recognized the BCG-managed Bear Creek as the place to play near the tarmac.
The nation's fourth-busiest airport probably has more golf options close by than any other major airport in the country. None are closer, however, than Bear Creek Golf Club, a 36-hole complex literally right next to the airport grounds. Designed by Ted Robinson, both Bear Creek's West Course and East Course offer plenty of challenge, interesting layouts (with no homes and plenty of oaks, waterfall, lakes and ponds) and generally good conditions, especially after the facility converted its difficult-to-maintain bentgrass greens to Bermuda a few years ago.
