Challenge in the East Bay

If you are looking for one of the most challenging courses in the Bay Area The Bridges is the place. I played from the white tees and had a good time. You are rewarded for straight tee shots and good putting. There are a couple of holes that can play a little gimmicky, but it is a good test of any golfers skills.

Tough course

This course is beautiful to look at but once you get out it’s a beast. Unfortunately due to the weather it is very wet, that being said the greens are in immaculate condition and roll great. If sloped fairways and undulating greens are what you like this is the course for you.

Beautiful but very tough

Beautiful layout and very good condition considering the rain. But be prepared - it is very tough, with a lot of hazards, good chance of steep side hill lies even when on the fairway, and huge, slick, steeply undulating greens.

Truthfully too tough for me to really enjoy it.

Great layout average maintenance.

Great layout but very average maintenance. Fairways and greens needed mowing. Lot of blind shots so get some extra balls.

ENJOYABLE CHALLENGE

I really like Bridges and find it to be a hidden gem, but you can't go into thinking you will beat it up.

The course is all about position and also the blind shots at times can be very mean, but what I enjoyed most was the different groupings of holes and layout, the final stretch as well the first five holes are great. A lot of risk-reward shots that make for a fun time.

The biggest issue I see with this course is you have to be able to make contact and carry the ball since a lot of holes have forced carries, and it just wouldn't be fun if you can move the ball around.

I really enjoy this one.

This may be the most challemging, but the best course I’ve ever played. By far the best value of any course I’ve played. I got paired with a group of locals and it was a very enjoyable round. Yes the rough is long, the fairways are tighter than anything I’ve experienced and there are a lot of carries to greens, but wow was this a fun round. I’m sure I’ll score better next time haha.

Greens pretty bad 3 weeks after punching

I've played the course before, but it appeared in worse shape than prior years. The greens were REALLY slow after being punched a few weeks prior, and I think in general some of the greens and many of the paths etc. have settled (not in a good way) in the past few years.
It will take some doing to get me back here unless I hear it has significantly improved.

A fun but challenging day!

We hadn't played Bridges in a few years and saw a great deal on Golf Now. While the course is challenging it's still a lot of fun. Yes, playing the course a few times and local knowledge will help play it better, they have done a lot to keep it fair. It's in good condition and we played in under 4 hours.

High end Golf Resort feel

Challenging course layout, lots of different lie angles. Greens are tricky breaks down the hill even though it looks like it will break left. 18th hole tempting to go for it, layup best option.

Extremely difficult and too wet

This course takes all the fun out of golf. Probably 90% of the course is rough. The short grass is rare. The rough is extremely punitive. There is no gradation in the rough, you’re either in the short grass or your dead in the rough. I typically don’t spray the ball around and I am usually in the fairway at most courses. The greens are over watered to the point of being ridiculous. It amazes me that this course gets such great reviews. There are many courses in the Eastbay that are vastly superior to this
course. Really the only thing good about this course is the pace of play. There aren’t that many people that want to experience this mess. There is a green on the back nine that is so large it is beyond ludicrous.
