How often do golf courses ever say weekends are less crowded? For visitors with only two or three weekend days to spare this season, this could be the best thing to happen to golf since players stopped wearing lime green pants.
Leagues are hugely popular at the Bridgewater Links 9-hole Executive Golf Course and it’s easy to see why:
Bridgewater is a 1,769 yard nine-hole executive course considered the most challenging in the city, according to the PGA. The first two holes, for instance, really get your attention.
“Be wary of Holes #1 and #2. They’re long, the greens are small, and there’s a desert wash bordering the fairway and greens,” says Paul Thomas, general manager.
“If you take a six on either of these two par 3s, you’ll be working hard to get your score back over the next seven.”
The par 3 #9 has a beautiful view of the resort and to the far left, a picture-perfect look at the famous London Bridge.
A dozen or so different leagues love Bridgewater because it’s a mental challenge, but at only nine holes, players still have some energy left the rest of the day.
Never boring, the Bridgewater is no easy walk in the park, which makes it appealing to all kinds of leagues during the week. That brings us to the good news: no leagues on the weekends, which loosens up tee times Saturday and Sunday, according to Thomas. “We still have tee times midweek, but there’s more availability at the end of the week. Just be sure to reserve in advance.”
