The Valley Course, one of two 18-hole courses at Bear Mountain Golf & Country Club, sprawls across a diverse landscape of forests, creeks, and rivers. The golf course shares many similarities with its sibling course, the Mountain, which was designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son Steve Nicklaus. It offers many of the same challenges including elevated tee boxes and strategically placed bunkers but thanks to the shorter length and gentler landscape, the Valley Course is considered a friendlier version of the original Bear Course. There are also more generous fairways and larger greens that make it even more appealing to the beginning and intermediate player. The golf course is still challenging though with elevations between 300 and 500 feet above sea level. Golfers can enjoy spectacular mountain views on both Bear Mountain courses.

Bear Mountain Golf & Country Club boasts Victoria's only course co-designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son, Steve. The Mountain Course is a modern classic that is nestled in the foothills of Mount Finlayson. The scenic layout features rolling fairways that tumble through dense forests and views of the surrounding mountains, Victoria City, and Pacific Ocean throughout the entire course. Strategically placed bunkers and dramatic elevation changes present a formidable test to even seasoned players. The design skillfully combines challenge with playability, making it accessible to a range of skill levels. In 2009 the club added a second Nicklaus golf course called the Valley, making it the only 36-hole Nicklaus-designed facility in Canada. With more generous fairways, larger greens, and fewer bunkers, it is considered a gentler version of the original Bear Course.
