The Course & A Rich History
With one of the finest public golf courses in the area, nestled within one of the finest neighborhoods in the Dallas Metroplex, Bridlewood Golf Club boasts "A Private Club experience at a Daily Fee Price". Measuring 7,111 yards from the championship tees, the course tempts golfers with 25 acres of lakes and the meandering Timber Creek. “Because of the variety and balance of the holes, players will find a well-rounded golfing experience,” Weibring continues. “We have designed Bridlewood leaving a lot of decisions in the golfers’ hands. All skill levels will find a fair challenge and the opportunity to use a different strategy on each hole.”
Simply put, trees abound. #6 requires a medium iron shot uphill through a chute of trees. A large Post Oak guards the right edge of #9 green, while #10 requires the golfer to drive through a chute of mature hardwoods. #13 is surrounded by trees from tee to green, and splitting the fairway just before the creek is a huge elm. A large, expansively branched Post Oak towers over the green at #15. Trees frame the gently contoured fairway of #16, large oaks frame the green on #17, and trees, a lake, and Timber Creek guard all of #18. This is a true test of golf, but still playable for the accurate golfer.
TifEagle Bermuda greens and 419 Bermuda grass fairways are, of course, the preferred locations of choice on the Bridlewood course. Grass swales, mounds, hollows, and bunkers are alternatives to tee, fairway and green — aside from wood and water. “There isn’t a golf course similar to Bridlewood in the entire Metroplex. With fairways surrounding each green, chipping plays a big role. Our goal was to accentuate the rolling terrain and forests without disturbing them, so the open feeling of the front nine contrasts with the hardwoods and Timber Creek on the back nine.”
