Among the top 15 golf courses in Texas in 2020 according to GolfPass, The Bridges Golf Club is a beautiful semi-private facility with a terrific golf course designed by renowned architect Jeffrey Brauer and major championship winner Fred Couples. The courses, which measures 7,612 yards from the back tees with a rating of 77.7, opened in 2008 and has been receiving rave reviews since. The course got its name because it winds its way through "The Bridges" of Preston's Crossing, the neighborhood where the course is located. The holes are fairly wide open as wind is often a factor. Bunkers are beautifully sculpted and water comes into play on a number of holes. Greens are fairly large and elevated with plenty of bunkers and other protection, but generally fairly accessible. Fortunately, there are five sets of tees, starting at 5,193 yards, making it player friendly for all. The no. 1 handicap hole is the par-5 third, which is 581 yards. But perhaps more daunting is the finishing hole, the 645-yard 18th, which is the no. 2 handicap hole on the course. A lake comes into play from tee to green on this sharp dogleg right (it hugs the right side all the way), where the layup isn't even easy. Going for it in two is pretty much impossible, unless you're one of the best players in the world. Practice facilities include a driving range and putting green. Lessons are also available. The Bridges magnificent clubhouse includes a well-stocked golf shop and The Masters Bar & Grill, which is open for breakfast, lunch and early dinner.
