Bridges Golf Course
Bridges Golf Course is a municipal, 18-hole course that sits on the northeastern side of Madison, just south of the airport. It’s popular with locals since it’s both affordable and challenging. The layout starts out on low-lying wetlands and then on the back nine it climbs up a ridge along Anderson Avenue. For a championship golf course it’s not particularly long at 6,900 yards from the back tees, but golfers will still face several tricky holes. Players of all skill levels will enjoy Bridges Golf Course for its variety of risk-reward opportunities. It’s not terribly punishing though so beginners can approach it with confidence. In addition to the golf course, Bridges offers a practice facility that includes a driving range and two separate practice greens for chipping and putting.

One of my go to courses
This course has been one of my go to courses for a number of years. One of the things I like about it is there’s not very big hills as I am an older golfer and walk. I also like the golf now app. For the gps. The staff is always friendly and the Friday fish fry’s are outstanding.
Terrible staff ruined experience
Manager in the pro shop tried to impersonate the owner telling us we need to tip the ladies cleaning the carts $20 a piece after making the turn at 7:40pm when he said carts need to be in by 8pm on the phone and again during check in. When asked if he was the owner he stated yes pretty much. I asked again saying your are the owner correct, he changed his tune and said no I’m basically the head manager. Again saying we needed to tip the girls cleaning the carts (due to Covid cleaning guidelines) because we didn’t come in even though it was only 7:40pm.
Played here a few times. The course was in decent shape considering the amount of rain we have had the last couple of days. Greens did not have a lot of break in them and took a couple of holes to dial in. Can be noisy at times being so close to the airport. Although the fighter jets flying over are really amazing.
Will golf here again when it is a little dryer out.
Found the course to be in great shape, staff was friendly considering what we are going thru at present (covid-19) food and drink available. People were well organized. Value was great for conditions we are now in. Tom
With the times we are in right now there’s not much you can do.. But at least we have Golf! Bridges had a easy, clean and efficient system in place to make it easy for everyone! It was a great time!
The course was in incredible shape for this time of the year. Greens were a might slow but well cared for. With temps at 50 degrees, it was quite comfortable. I broke my low score for the season on probably my last chance to play this year. Wonderful way to finish. Look forward to playing here in the spring.
They paired the 2 of us with another pair of guys. They were nice guys and golf now said we could be added to another pair. The course was busy. We were backed up behind other groups and there were 2 groups behind us backed up. It was a Friday but they were cramming as many golfers as possible. It was too much for my liking.
Hot with no beverage cart!
We played a hot Sunday afternoon after a outing and they had no beverage cart out there at all. It sucks because they had a lot of groups out there and it was slow so they could have made a lot of extra money.
Bad fairways & limited course markings
The fairways had lots of bare spots & grounds under repair. The sand traps were dirt. There are no course markings so that you know how far away a hazard is when you tee off. Example. Hole #10 has a ditch with water that runs through the fairway. There is no yardage provided to clear the hazard. There are many dog legs on the course, but the score card does not represent them well & there is no yardage provided to them.
Built in a marshy area near the airport, there is lots of water (and bridges over it). But surprisingly not too buggy (yet).
course in overall good shape
Lots of water.
Need to hit straight drives as most holes have water.
Nice local course.
Nice play. When it’s wet, it’s wet! But... they do stay open and let you play. Nice bar. Good course for being built on a marsh.
