Generally poor.

Just not up to par. No staff for 5 minutes at check in, no direction for first time player as to starting hole location or multi course (9’s) layout. Course not in good condition the box’s and greens and overall despite dormant season plenty could have been done to show care that has not been. Inexpensive for a reason and will not play again unfortunately.

Good Winter Conditions, friendly staff

Staff was friendly offered my to go out early. Driving range was grass although a bit beaten up but still decent. Course layout is really challenging, fairways and greens good for this time of year. Only issue with condition was some of the bunkers had not been racked leaving large footprints and uneven surfaces, also many leaves. Bit those were minor issues really. Lots of sand in the bunkers which is nice. Great value.

Good winter conditions

Course overall was in good shape. Dormant bermuda was fine. The two different nines had vastly different bentgrass greens though. Masters was slow and green and sticky. Traditions were browner, faster, and harder. Odd. Pace was good for a cool Sunday afternoon.

One issue the course seems to be having. Without Marshals, people are making their own decisions on which nines they want to play. I played my front 9 (Masters) and when I made the turn to back 9 (Traditions) there were 2 groups on #10 tee. People are not following the suggested and expected routing.

This is a good winter course. Challenging enough. They just need to make sure people are following the correct routing.

Two down one to go

Nice course layout, elevated greens. Many leaves on the fairways, but it is winter! I will definitely play this course again and look forward to trying The Lakes. That will complete the three courses offered here. Very nice place to play.

Great course

Great course for the price. Carts are new and clean. It’s a 27 hole track so the next time I play it it could be like getting to play a new course. Love that concept

Great course, fast play

Great fun course. Driver off everything but par threes. Nice and open but water to make you play strategically over creeks and ponds. Really fun and will be playing more often to get in quick 18 holes

Disappointing

I’ve played here before and liked it, but it’s been awhile. However, was really disappointed, primarily due to greens. In awful shape. A lot of mowed down weeds on the greens, rolled very poorly. Too bad, it’s a nice layout

Greens need some work

Rough greens and slow play made the overall day only average for us. The track is decent and the clubhouse is very nice.

Hailed In the Middle of our round

We played yesterday, got caught in the middle of the rain/hailstorm on the 6th hole - waited for it to pass, and finished the 9 in the rain. Go to the pro shop for a raincheck and proceeded to get less than half of our round in a credit voucher.

The Traditions Course

The back 9 I play d the Traditions course. The fairways were in awful shape. Most of the fairways were dried out with no grass. As such, I was hitting off hard dirt.

The greens were in great shape and were super fast.

The Champions course was in pretty good shape, but way to many ball marks that weren’t repaired!

From Perfect to Meh in 5 Weeks

Played 6/23/22 and everything was absolutely perfect. Bent grass greens on Champions were smooth even as they got slightly slower due to the heat. Back nine Traditions was great. Only 5 weeks went by and the bent grass greens have gotten really bad and the Traditions fairways have majorly dried out and died out, even though the new greens are firm and pretty good. Crazy what 5 weeks of major heat has done to Bridges this year
