Golf courses in Bridgewater MA

West Bridgewater Country Club

Formerly known as River Bend Country Club, this public golf course initially opened in 1999 in the town of West Bridgewater. 

The first nine holes are a classic design of golf that are all about open space on the fairways, but you will be playing along the Town River, so there are water hazards and a constant wind to challenge you.

The back 9 has tree-lined fairways, so make sure you’ve got your club selection down pat and hit those shots with precision.

The compact design adds a challenge to playing so just be prepared. This course is always available for a convenient tee time and is a nice golf course to challenge you every round.

This Bridgewater golf course was originally a dairy farm run by the Ridder family in the early 1900s. This 18-hole golf course is very simple: wide, flat, and open. I enjoy playing here because it’s nice not to worry about getting too technical or precise with your shots.

From the tips it plays just over 5900 yards with a par of 70 and this blue tees – rating is 68.1. It sneakily presents a challenge because you have to rely on your yardage and accuracy to try to score low. The front 9 was designed by Henry Holhman In 1961 and the back nine was completed in 1965 by designer Geoff Cornish.

This is a perfect course for any average golfer looking to practice and gain confidence in their game. I love the layout of this course, and it’s always kept nice.

You get value for your money, and the pace of play is always good at this Bridgewater golf course. Another bonus is that there are bathrooms and vending machines spread around the course.

My recommended local restaurant for breakfast before golf: Cowbells Cafe (25 South Avenue in Whitman)

I recently went there with my wife, who is learning to play, and we got some used clubs for super cheap. The PGA coach was also helpful and answered all her questions, and they also offer the chance to buy a gift certificate for anyone you know who loves golf.

The greens are noteworthy, as they are widely regarded as some of the best in the area – offering a quick pace and a true roll. Players should use strategic thinking as they navigate the course’s various hole designs, which offer layup and high-risk/reward options.

Easton CC also has a natural grass driving range and a putting green. Personally, I appreciate the natural grass driving range as a spot to get some reps in, but make sure the greens have dried out. With the rain or bad weather, it can get pretty soaked at the range.

My recommended local spot for coffee or muffins or cupcakes (or anything delicious) before golf: White’s Bakery & Cafe ( 1041 Pearl St in Brockton)

And those are the top golf courses near Bridgewater MA. If you want to head a little further outside for a nearby course to Bridgewater for golf, check out D.W. Field Golf Course (muni course in Brockton), Lakeville Country Club, and Poquoy Brook Golf Club (both in Lakeville).

Also in Lakeville is Heritage Hill, formerly The Back Nine Club, which is under new ownership so I’m curious to see what they’ve done – if you played the updated course, let me know what you think.
