Singles beware

Only complaint is as a single the cart is a shared cart with a plastic screen. Perhaps I should have known or seen that but I did not.

So if that makes you uncomfortable, please know that ahead of time.

My new home course

love the layout of the course , not to challenging for a beginner. Even playing along side members they are super friendly and not rushed or slowed down by my play.

Bridgwater staff have helped me with payments over the phone and recommended a website for used clubs to better my game

5 outta 5 best course in the Niagara Region

Beautiful Course With Tough Greens

Positives: Tee box, fairways & greens in excellent shape. The greens are quick and always slopping, so putting is premium here.
Negative: Bunkers are really bad, no soft sand here.

First Time Playing

Very nice course

Fairways, greens, & rough were all in excellent shape. We had a foursome playing slowly in front & still we had a 4 hour round. Big plus was the bunkers had actual soft sand in them. It was a perfect day. I'll be back.
