New operators at Bear Creek Golf Course


The Hilton family, Mike and Laurie Hilton and their three daughters, Willa, Daisy and Adele.

WINTHROP - Ash and Linda Court of Winthrop,  owners of Bear Creek Golf Course, are excited to  announce that the operation of their property has taken over by Mike and Laurie Hilton of Winthrop, as of Jan. 1, 2018 and beyond. The Hiltons will be  taking over operation of Bear Creek Golf Course from Terry and Debbie Evans who have  operated the course for the last three seasons.
The Hiltons moved their family and their construction business from Seattle to the
Methow Valley in February of 2005. They have raised their three daughters in the  Methow Valley while running their custom design/build business, Hilton Construction,  Inc. They will continue to maintain their construction business but will only take on  limited client work.
Mike is originally from Houston, Texas where he received a degree in Landscape  Architecture from Texas A & M University. Laurie is from Traverse City, Michigan and has an  undergraduate degree in French and Business from Western Michigan University, as well  as a Master of International Management degree from Thunderbird School of Global  Management in Glendale, Arizona.
Mike began golfing at a young age in Houston. He has casually maintained his golf game  over the years but ramped up his frequency after having introduced his three daughters to the game.
Laurie’s prior professional career was in  Marketing for Brooks Sports, Bayliner (boating industry) and Sonicare.
 The Hiltons plan to make their operation a family affair, echoing the Court’s experience of raising four children while operating the course. Their main focus will be on  maintaining and improving the quality of the greens while also increasing the reach of  their membership.
 The Hiltons are so appreciative of the Courts for both creating and maintaining a golf  course in this beautiful area. The Hiltons hope to be able to keep this Methow Valley gem  alive and successful for the benefit of this community.
