Played Champions/Traditions. The Bridges is one of the best public courses in the metroplex. The course is in great shape. Some of the bunkers need attention, but they are still better than most. A fun, challenging course and a great layout!

Course is in great shape! Greens (Bent grass) are handling the heat well. They are watering the greens during the round. Pace of play was great, we played in 4 hrs on a Sunday with a 11:40 tee time!

By far the best course of the 3 Firewheel courses. Fairways and greens were very good this 2nd week of June. Pace of play was exactly 4:15 on Sunday morning. I really like this course.

Played the Champion/Masters nines. Champion is fun and straightforward, Masters is a bit more quirky. Both had great Bentgrass greens, solid fairways, and putrid bunkers. Lots of carpet showing in most bunkers. A good mix of wide open holes and strategic, tight ones. Pace was pretty good on a Sunday mid-day round. Lots of water stations on the course and we saw the cart girl 4 times. This course is enjoyable when pace is good and greens are in decent shape (it was). There was one cart bridge that had a board missing and course may want to check out.

All in all a nice round of golf on a good course. Played with two gentlemen that had some game so we played the back tees. Nice to hit driver on almost every hole.

You can never go wrong at any if the 3 Bridges courses. Greens and bunkers are always in goid shape. All 3 courses are challenging layouts.

I've played the Bridges before but they have obviously embraced their brand. Richard Cosbie in the golf shop is a living legend who guided me through the whole experience. If you want a rare opportunity to play top notch bent grass greens within a story book bedroom community then The Bridges is your destination. I'll be looking for my next opportunity on GolfNow.

You'll like this course. I prefer playing the Champions and the Masters. Right now, the fairways are running fast. Bunkers are well maintained. The greens have been punched recently, but are still pretty hard and don't receive a good approach very well. So, so plan on an extra amount of roll out. This course is not too tight or too long for us duffers. Lots of fun.
