This course is a must try and definitely worth the drive if you don’t live near by.

The condition is 9/10. Fairway,bunkers, and greens are all almost excellent.

The restaurant and bar is very nice too. The food here is great.

Customer service is excellent. Everyone is welcoming.

Excellent value for your money.

For an upscale priced course, was surprised very few trash receptacles and ball washer. Previous golfers did not fix their ball marks on the green or repair the fairway when divots made. Some tee boxes were in rough shape as well. Played here before and it seems less maintenance is being done.

This is a challenging course and I have enjoyed it more in the past.

Play here often. Conditions are always good, staff is always pleasant. A good value for what you get.

Hit it straight on this course, crooked shots are punished severely. A good amount of the trouble is not plainly in view so use the GPS to guide you on your first few times out.

The greens are tough as well and usually pretty fast.

I play on average 6 - 10 times a year at the Bridges and the course is always in great shape. It’s a tough but fair course, in other words your good shots will be rewarded and your bad shots will be penalized. Lots of hazards both off the tee and around the green to contend with. All that said, I keep going back because it is a challenge and very well maintained.

Over the years, I've attempted to take breaks from the course and then revisited from time to time in order to give it a fair chance. Unfortunately, things haven't gotten better since my first impression. The layout and the course condition forces the worst out of my (and pretty much everyone I've played with here) game (no rewards essentially for hitting great shots). I've played the "sister" course-Eagle Ridge, and I can't quite explain it, but it's so much better than Bridges. From the hint of sass you get at the pro shop when you need to make minor changes to the inconsistent and discolored greens and worse than US Open rough conditions, it's just so very very difficult to like and enjoy this course. With so many courses in the bay area to consider, this continues to slip back on the list of my preferred list to play. The only good part of the course is how frequent the cart girl comes by to make sure everyone's ok (and to sell you $10 shots of crown). After this visit, tough for me say, but this time may be the very last time I will be back.

Played on a windy day after the March storms.

No issues with the course - greens and tee boxes in great shape; mud in low spots and bunkers and challenging as always, especially with the wind and pace of play was < 3.5 hrs.

I booked a Hot Deal for 11:30AM and unfortunately, I had an unexpected emergency that caused me to call the pro shop and ask them to reschedule to 2PM when the course was wide open. They courteously responded that they would need to upcharge me to their course rate at 2PM. While I respect a course to charge what they'd like, this has never happened with any other Northern California or Kemper course and it seems to me focus on making a few $ vs. the customer.

The Bridges is great for those Hot Deal buyers who are sure they can keep their tee times but given the daily unexpected personal/professional challenges in my life, I won't be returning any time soon.

Pretty course but man is it challenging. Even decent shots are punished. This course does not drain well at all so I would definitely wait until it drys out to play it. Overall unless you are very good at target golf this course will leave you frustrated.

As expected the course was very wet after all the rain we had over the last couple of weeks. Cart path only makes this course very hard as the distances get tough to estimate. Rough was very wet and long and the green were a little beat up. For the time of year, and the amount of rain we have had, J was surprised it was playable as it was. Still made for a great day

The course was wet so had to be cart path only. The softness of the course did not allow much roll so it played longer. That also kept errant shots in play.

I was matched up with a young man who was a excellent golfer and we played in 3 1/2 hours

It was a very enjoyable day

Played a round today (10/3/2018), was surprised by the aeration and sanding, as there were no warning nor notes when I book the reservation. Very nice pro shop staff. All and all good course to play.

An almost good day, ruined by the Director of Golf, Dan Osterberg at the practice facility after the round. My partner and I went to the practice facility after today's round, bought a bucket of balls, discussing some of the shots we have played about each other's swing and tips on the course today. Mr. Dan Osterberg, interrupt our discussion and ask me aside and wanted to "talk" with me. He said he had seen me on their video camera numerous times giving lessons to people on their practice facility. Obviously, he either mis-identity me for someone else (he won't give me the chance to explain), or basically very determined of pinpoint me doing something wrong (which I have no idea, maybe using the practice facility for "lesson" or "teaching"?), as there are plenty of people around me either giving tips to their practicing partners or friends all around the practice facility, I see many apprentices accompanied and receive instructions from either coaches or teachers or parents alike; but, single me out for no apparent reason to me. Ask me to leave the facility, without letting me explain that I do no such thing, even when I ask him to produce the video he had claimed he saw me doing such thing, which I have never done anything like it, nor am I "teaching" or giving "lesson" to anyone what-so-ever. He couldn't produce the said videos he claimed he had. But, still, ask me to leave the practice facility without good reason, IMHO. As I am puzzled by his action towards me. Either he thinks I am taking his business away? Which is ridiculous, or he simply doesn't like me? I don't even know what I did to deserve this unprofessional treatment. Very very odd! He asks me whether I am a PGA professional, and I told him no. And I told him that we are just talking about our swings during the round we had just played, and discussing tips to each other. I mean WOW!!! How insecure is this person?

I hope everyone is aware of this odd behavior in this practice facility. They have real issues!!!
