When in Town...Play Here

The Bridges is a Jack Nicklaus design complete with a whole lot of hazards and water. If you are off your game, you won't be close to your handicap. The course has some diversity in holes and offers plenty of challenge for serious sticks/people with distance abilities. If you are a low handicapper, then you will enjoy it here. If not, you can still enjoy your round if you don't try anything outside of your ability. Check out the slope ratings if you want to get an idea.
Favorite hole is the short par 4 third with at least two ways to play it. Most holes are of the hit it here or else type, but it is an enjoyable challenge. Par 3s have variety in distances. The par 5s are not easy to reach in two shots. Definitely three shotters for anyone who isn't of the 350 tee shot caliber. Still, enjoyable for someone show is a mid to high handicapper. High handicappers will want to bring extra ammo as the majority of holes have water.
Green sites are good; some contour, but nothing out of control. Enough to make two putting not a given if not on the right side of slopes. Putts are relatively easy to read if you give it a look from two sides. Speeds are good; about 12. Fast but not ridiculous.
The course conditions are excellent; especially for elevation. They lend themselves to the aerial game being rewarded. Not many shot options with all the hazards.
Off the course, there is a full practice facility, restaurant and anything else you want when not playing. The views of the San Juan mountains are quite wonderful too.
The western slope is not crowded at all compared to the front range (Denver, Colorado Springs, Boulder, etc), so pace of play and ability to get out is easy.
If in the area, this would be where I would go.

Great Course

The wife and I Played at The Bridges while vacationing in the area. We really enjoyed the course. It was challenging, interesting, and playable, without being penalizing. Staff was helpful and friendly. Course had some bare patches in the fairways, but we understand that the weather this past winter was a challenge and courses in the area are recovering. Definitely recommend the course if you’re in the Montrose area.

Turn off the sprinklers!

Like this course a lot. (Aside that you can't walk it) but for the love of God turn down the sprinklers! Played from tips and it is difficult playing 460 yard par 4's when your ball backs up 2 feet when it hits the fairway. Not to mention having to clean your ball. The ball is meant to roll! Annoying. Greens were punched 3 weeks prior and were very slow.

The course was in good shape for the end of February.

I play this courts a few times a year and it is always a challenge. The course conditions for the end of February were surprisingly good but challenging. Carts were allowed but restricted to cart paths so the pace of play was slow as you would expect. I booked on Golf Now and paid $70 for two players, good price for this tract. If you find yourself in Delta Colorado you should treat yourself to a round at this course. Great clubhouse and Remingtons restaurant on site has great food.

Good Course

The course was in excellent condition other than they were plugging the fairways trying to get ready for winter. Great driving range, good greens. The course is in great shape considering the problems they had 5 years ago.

Nice course but lots of deer flies

Staff excellent. The greens were in very good condition, but the fairways had numerous areas that were marked as ground under repair. Several of the bunkers also had very compact sand. Worth the hot deal price, but not their regular fees of about 80 dollars.
There are lots of deer flys on many of the holes, so advise insect repellent.

Serious drainage problem

No matter where you went on this course it was complete soaked! Even without taking a divot you were getting splashed. Did I mention that it didn't even rain. Also, the fairways were basically dead almost every where you went. Probably won't go back.

Long carries over creeks

They would not allow a nine hole replay when the wind reached 30mph because I paid through a booking service.

Gorgeous Coarse

Overall playing the Bridges is a pleasure . I live close by so it's hard to drive by this coarse and not be able to play more often ! Price is the reason. The coarse is in extremely great shape and have nothing but praise for the overall experience just wished the price was more in my ballpark so I could play it more often !!

Best kept secret in Colorado!

FANTASTIC course and felt like it was all mine - and on a Saturday morning! Not sure why, but the course was almost deserted when I arrived and throughout the day. I played 36 holes - almost by myself the whole day! Course was in great condition and although I saw reviews that indicated it had lots of "surprises" - I found it very fair. Yes, there are a few blind shots and a few small creeks that come into play, but mostly it's well-designed and has a great variety of holes. Scenery is very nice but the course design is the star! The green placements are genius, both visually and as a challenge. The 15th, a long par 5 is the one to watch out for - aim RIGHT on the second shot or be doomed! Holes 16, 17 & 18 are awesome - best closing holes I've played! Can't really say anything but great things about this course or the experience I had there. So, PLEASE don't tell anyone so the secret isn't spoiled!

Water water everywhere

I believe there is water on 14 of the 18 holes and many strategically placed bunkers. Unless you're well off line, water shouldn't be too much of a factor for most of the holes. The greens were large with considerable undulations and slope. As always, local knowledge would probably shave off 5-6 strokes. The fairways were in good shape. The Colorado Senior Open will be played in less than two weeks and the greens were rock hard and fast. A ball landing on the green would not hold. I still enjoyed the course as it provided a test for every club in your bag. Put this course on your bucket list.

Like having your own course

I've played at The Bridges off and on over the past 8 years. It's the best course in the immediate area. Many rounds have felt like we were the only ones on the course.

One of the best on the Western Slope

The Bridges is one of the best courses on the Western Slope. Eric and the boys are some of the friendliest staff around. You can’t beat the layout. There is plenty of trouble without being silly. There are no goofy holes that need local knowledge. When you shoot low at the Bridges you can certainly be proud. The scenery is fabulous. The clubhouse can’t be beat. The food is a treat. If you are in the area, PLAY HERE, you won’t regret it.

Great course

Excellent course. Great condition. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Great pace of play. Tough course if you don't know the layout. Greens are fast and have "moguls". The pro shop described them as "buried elephant" greens. Fun to play once you figure out the speed and where the valley vs. mountain is.
Can't wait to go back.

We visit Telluride Colorado once each summer. We always make the 40 minute drive to Montrose to play Bridges. Enjoy it every time!

My wife and I (sometimes another couple) love playing the Bridges Golf Course. I switch between playing the whites and blues and my wife enjoys the red tees. The first time through the course you will learn all the danger areas (water/plant areas). The second time through you will shave at least 4 strokes off your round. Nice range and putting areas. Scenic and peaceful...
