"Below average"

I heard they are closing for 8 months for a sewer project, hopefully they use that time to fix the issues. The greens are newer Bermuda and were fine (but fast and hard, I like those, some may not). None of the bunkers were playable. Full of mud/water etc. To be fair they...

I finally played Red Bridge Saturday 11/14. I had heard a lot about the course, so my buddies and I gave it a shot. A lot of comments posted on this board about the course are very accurate. We played from the tips – not advisable unless you are a low handicapper. I’m a 2, and I still shot 83. My brother and others friends are low to mid 80’s golfers, and they both shot 92. Local knowledge is critical on this course, and if you have not played it before, you are at a big disadvantage. There are a lot of tight shots to fast, difficult greens, not to mention long forced carries, mainly because we were playing from the blues. There are also several blind shots that can catch you off guard. After 4 inches of rain, the course was very wet, and it likely played over 7000 yards in reality.

Overall a good layout, with an unusual variety of holes. I liked the uniqueness, but admittedly it is very difficult for the reasons I mentioned. There are several par 4’s that would play like par 5’s in these conditions for shorter hitters. There are also several areas staked as OB that make no sense, making some long par 4’s that much more difficult. When I know the course better and it’s dry, it will not be too bad, but I will have to bring my A game to shoot my handicap.
