Very disappointing. Maybe it is cultural, but I disagree wholeheartedly with their manner of sending off groups. We had a 2:00 tee time. In front of us were several groups of twosomes, with a single behind us and another twosome behind him. Several times there were three groups waiting on a tee for what ended up as a 4:10 hour round. Not bad overall but the rhythm and pace of play was awful. I asked the guy behind us to to join us three times, but he rejected the offer. The course should manage this problem.

You have got to play this course. I got it for 25.00 hot deal on golfnow. I would easily pay double that to play this course. The greens are like table tops. The Marshall was on his job just had a group of slow and bad players in front of us. Drove an hour to get here and I will do it again.

The course design is great, maintenance was good, and price was good. The problem that ruined the round was a 5+ hour round.

The starter/ranger made us wait 5-10 minutes to start. Then he told us to keep up pace, because its a 4 hour round--great! Problem was that delays started on the 3rd hole and rangers were nowhere to be found.

Finally about halfway through a ranger came around and I let him know about the slow play. His response: "yeah, it's Friday so it's going to be a while". I said, "what happened to the 4 hr round? Can you tell them to speed up". He claimed he did. One thing is for sure, pace of play is NOT enforced. 5+ hour round ruined the day. Nothing was done to spees up play.

This is an amazing golf course. The course is always in great shape and plays so well. Now to point out the problems. Number 1) Called the pro shop to see if we could add two more people to our tee time. The pro shop attendant was rude and was talking to someone else in the pro shop telling them that I didn't like that I had to play with two other people and that wasn't even the case. 2) Tee time was supposed to be at 228, sat at the 1st Tee waiting for the othe two people that we are paired up with only to find out that they went out earlier. 3) No marshals on the course at all until they very end of the round. The pace of play was so slow and was told it was going to be a 4 hour round and was a 6 hour round. When the Marshal say well its slow all around and just enjoy the round. (YEAH RIGHT!). 4) Maybe it's small but not one ball washer on the hole course. Pretty nice course not to have the amenities of a municipal course.

Got a special rate today but the course wasn't as difficult as I remember in years past. All the guys in the group agreed. Course was in good shape, greens were putting true, fairways were good, and rough was tough. The main reason for the review was the restaurant and the wonderful staff. The food was great but the staff was fantastic. I have never had such service in a golf restaurant. My congratulations!

They don't know how to manage the pace of a golf course. It took 3 hours to get through 9 holes. Then they gave me a hard time and only wanted to give me a replay for the 9 hours after we quit and they tutored me for 3 hours!!!

What a goat ranch! Greens were horrible, course looked like a 3rd rate muni. Way over priced for course. Greens were awful. At one time was really nice course. Upcoming management change might improve, but a lot of money needs to be put into it. I will not go back.

Pace of play was less than 4 hours because no one was there.

After playing a 2 hour and 5 minute front nine, the Marshall asked our group to pick up and move to the next hole. Reason was because of a State Amateur tournament that was behind us. In reality, they were 3 holes back and walking playing from the Tips.

Greens were bumpy, too.

Bye Bye Bridlewood for awhile.

My friends and I drive 45 minutes every few months just to play Bridlewood. The next time we decide to make this investment of time we will call first to hear what the pro shop has to say about the greens. Today the greens were simply beaten up - looked like they would after a hail storm. Perhaps the golfers who play here do not care about fixing ball marks, but the course management should. Every putt was an adventure; watching the ball roll was like watching a drunk walk - never knew which way it would bounce next.

I hope this problem is addressed. Bridlewood is an upper tier public course but didn't show it today. We can play lots of other courses with MUCH better greens for MUCH lower greens fees

Bridlewood used to be one of the premier daily fee courses around. It has lost some of its luster. Some fairways are burned out, greens are full of poa annua and fungus, and are very uneven. Course is still a good layout with good shot values. I hope they can fix the greens and return this course to its previous stature.

Played from tips and a fairly challenging course. Not a great value for the condition of the course compared to many others I have played in the past 30 days. Maybe it will come around by June or July. I play three or more times a week all over the DFW area and this was disappointing for the money. Course condition overall was weak. Greens were the worst I have seen. Hard and rough. Although I have not played here for some time the course just is not in crisp condition like it used to be. Many large holes around cart paths and some large drop offs that make it hard to get back on the path. Much better courses for less money in the area. The do have a nice club house and the people were friendly. One guy said since the management changed course is not as well kept.
