Floridas New and Exciting Links Course
The course at The Golf Club of Bridgewater located in Lakeland Florida, is another amazing design by architect Steve Smyers. He has carved out 18 magnificent holes, each having its own specific challenge. You must play HEART BREAK RIDGE! It is number 4 and has become a favorite for few and a menace for many more. With a tight driving area to a narrow 12-foot elevated green surrounded by water left, and a 12-foot deep bunker right, this hole challenges the better players to conquer it.
The goal was to build an interesting test of golf for all skill levels, but specifically to be a stern challenge for the long hitting players. Steve Smyers accomplished this by developing this links style course with a risk/reward approach especially around the greens. The green complexes are large, averaging 10,000 square feet, giving a different look every time you play.
BRIDGEWATER OFFICIALLY OPENED IN SEPTEMBER 2007 AND WAS RECOGNIZED BY GOLF WEEK AS ONE OF THE `TOP 100 COURSES YOU CAN PLAY" soon after. It is a semi-private club with championship golf, in a beautiful setting, an accessible location, moderate price, with solely golf environment; these are a few of the many reasons to experience Bridgewater. The golf course is 18-holes separated from any residences. Escape to the isolation of just yourself among fairways and greens.
Bridgewater requires careful thought to play well and rewards classic shot making. The layout with each of its distinctly different holes will provide you with a lasting memory of the round, making this one of your favorite golf rounds in Central Florida
