The Bridges Golf Club is a semi-private 18-hole golf course located in Gunter, Texas, about 45 minutes north of Dallas.
The Bridges Golf Course opened for play in 2008. The course was designed by Jeffrey Brauer with input from Fred Couples.
The par-72, 7,601-yard course can play like many different golf courses, depending on the wind and, by design, the set of tees you choose. It has a real linksy feel with few trees and - for now - few homes on the golf course. That means your golf shots are exposed to the elements.
#1 is a 446-yard, dogleg right par 4 that plays around a natural area to an elevated green.
#9, a par-4, measures514 yards from the tips. It is still 448 from the white tees, two boxes up. With a creek that protects the green, many players will simply opt to lay up and try to get a wedge close on the third shot.
#16, a par-4, is probably the most difficult to reach in regulation. There isn't a single bunker on the hole, but it plays entirely uphill and generally into the prevailing wind. Again, few players can reach it in two from the back tee, but that's who the back tees are reserved for - today's top amateurs and professionals.
#18. a par-5, plays into three semi-island landing areas. To make it more interesting, there's a large oak tree right in the middle of the fairway of the second island. When this hole plays into the wind, which is about half the year, it truly is a beast.
