Poor Staff, felt rushed

Marshal was SO unbelievably rude. He was ON TOP of us all through every hole we played.. all because we had younger players (who are like little professionals- play 18 holes a day at Eagle Valley) -we just wanted to try something new. 15 year olds. Spent 250 dollars to play 18 holes for the 4 of us and quit at 9 because we were “baby sat” the entire time. Not enjoyable. If you aren’t a professional that can par every hole then I highly suggest avoiding this course.

Bridgewater Golf and Country Club

Really enjoyed our day. Great course layout and condition . The course has a little bit of everything, elevation changes, tough par 3’s and position holes. All in all we had a great day and would certainly play it again!

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
