Allowed multiple groups coming off 18 to tee up before us. Our 9.30 tee time didn’t happen until 10.10. We’re not told of delay when we checked in

Treated very poorly

This course is easily one of the top courses in Niagara. It is challenging for all types of golfers bringing in many hazards, trees and wide open fairways. The greens are well set up and present the need to be able to read them well.This course can kill your strengths and accentuate your weaknesses. For being Mid-October the course was in great shape, the greens rolled true and the fairways were cut perfect with the leaves blown away. Club selection is a key for this course, miss judge a shot and a hole plays very different. At the turn stop in for a one of the best smoked meat sandwiches you will have anywhere.

Good track and enjoyed the day.

Staff seems to resent green-feerers and show too much preference to old members due to having to become public. Reception is very poor.

Made to feel like 2nd class.

Will return despite this as like the course.

Greens are brutal.

We routinely drive an hour for this course being one of my favourite Stanley Thompson design course; true old school classic that's uses all of your clubs in the bag.

Great value as well that includes a great/free practice facility and on site amenities.

Another enjoyable time.

Cart staff were friendly, however the proshop was indifferent and we were treated like we weren't wanted there. Moved our 7:30 tee time to 8:00 and put 3 groups out ahead of us, then put a single walker ahead at 10 and a twosome between the foursome behind us.

We played on a record breaking heat wave for September, so we only played 9holes. But we enjoyed the course very much. Course was in great condition and greens were fast. Nice layout the starter was great and very helpful. Would play this course any time it was available. It was helpful we had no delays at the bridge.

You could not have asking for a better day to play golf. The sun was out with a slight breeze, but very hot. The leaves have yet to turn colours & fall. This is a mature parkland course. If you hook or slice, watch out. Play a extra club on all the par 3s. Keep the ball below the holes as the greens are quick. The consistency of the sand traps vary. Some have very little sand and others have a lot of sand.

The only thing better than the starter , the ranger to the person running the kiosk is the course itself . A great golfing experience lies at Bridgewater.

Upon arrival at 2:30pm for our 3:00pm tee time, we were informed that there were no carts available ( paid for them in our price) until 4:00pm. Smug pro shop employee mentioned that I didn't pay him after. I stated that I had paid for carts to be included and that I'd paid GOLFNOW. I had to ask for pull carts as he didn't think to offer them to us. I asked if they could bring a cart out to us when they became available and he assured me they would. As we played number 2, which heads back to the club house, we watched two groups tee off with carts. After we finished the 9th hole at approximately 5pm Iwithout a golf cart, I went back to the club house to find 10-15 carts. I can only assume that since this was a "hot deal" purchase, the club decided that we were low on their customer service priority list. Very unfortunate as the course is a nice track.
