Round 20: West Bridgewater CC is a Tricky Test


The 20th course in my quest to play every Mass course was West Bridgewater CC. It had been a couple weeks, and the wind and forced carries made some shots rather awkward. The course is ultimately fine. It’s very flat with marshland and water on nearly every hole. The front nine highlights are the par 3 fourth hole, a cute little par 3. Holes 5,6,7 were three tough ones into the wind with water looming and a touch of visual tricky off the tee. The back nine is probably the better side. Tree lined and a bit tougher overall. The par 3s are a bit “blah” but hole 11 was a good one from the back tees and 13 was a cool dogleg left among some big trees. The price was right, we paid 52 bucks to walk. The pace was good, no long waits. We met two nice guys Jack and Jim (even though they were BC grads...). This isn’t a place I’d push to return to. But I enjoyed the day and it got me excited to get back out and play more golf.
