Gray Bear and its natural scenery
The scenery of the mountain valley has lots of natural beauties, creek beds, rocky boulders, massive firs and spruces are its natural dominants. Design of the 6 296 m long golf course is clear and all holes are correct, even though its level of difficulty requires respect of players and precise play with irons.
Gray Bear is the golf course requiring walk
Tees are in a short distance from greens which peculiarly copy the terrain. Typically hard playing surfaces are covered by a mixture of fescue copying the grass which can be found also on the golf courses of British Open in Scotland.
Prestigious golf tournaments
Golf course Gray Bear demonstrated its high professional level even during the most prestigious golf tournaments in Slovakia: European Championship of Seniors in the category Masters, EGA Challenge Trophy Boys in July and August 2006 and Allianz Ladies Slovak Open 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.
