Thin Sand

Course is in good shape. Traps need more sand to get 5 stars.

Super parkland golf course

The greens are tricky so a GIR does not necessarily guarantee a par and they were quick consisdering how early it is in the season. There was only a touch of winter kill on some greens. The rough was the most punishing with almost needing to be on top of it to see it, so just hit it in the fairway and you'll be fine.
Didn't play the course last year but it was nice to get back!

Private Club experience

Course is in great condition although very wet. Free range balls before your round. Kid cleans your clubs after your round. Feels like a private club experience Will be back.

Early Season Round

There were not many golfers out today. Two of us with a cart finished in 3 hours. The course was wet so it was cart path only. Absolutly no roll on the drives, most high shots plugged. So the couse played long. Typical Stanley Thompson design the greens are quick. I can only imagine how fast they will be in the summer. A good test of golf at a resonable price. We will definately be back.

Played the course November 11th. Got a hot deal. The course was in great condition considering the time of year. We had a lot of rain fall prior. Rough was wet however greens and fairways were in great condition considering the rain fall we have had.
Restaurant and bar have been fully renovated. Looks great. Food was great as always.
New owners are obviously spending money, keep up the good work front and back of house. Thanks for a great day.

Slowest round of golf I have ever played

This is a decent course. We have played it several times. This time however was ridiculous. There were 2 foursomes I group ahead of us that were 3 holes behind. We had 4 ladies walking ahead of us and they were totally frustrated. At one point there were 4 groups on 1 par 4. The 2 groups were taking 7 to 10 minutes to Putt Out. On every hole. The problem was there was no Marshall at all. 5 .5 hours is just stupid. Unless I get assurances that there will be a Marshall in place I will never play here again.
I am totally appalled at the recent pace of play not just here. It seems that more people have taken up golf since the beginning of the pandemic, and they all think that what they see on Television is how you should conduct yourself on the course. What happened to the idea of ready golf. I remember it being a very much stressed way to play, especially on the green. I am sure tge ladies agead of us were members and they said it was the worst they had seen.

Worth the drive

Always look forward to my monthly trips to Fort Erie to play Bridgewater. In my books the best and friendliest staff in the business. Course was in great shape as usual. Greens rolling fast and true. Can’t say enough good things about this place. A+ 10/10

One of my favs

Always well kept and challenging. Some of the quickest greens in Niagara yet roll true…. Course facilities include an excellent restaurant for after round or an evening dinner out.
