What do you think Bull’s Bridge Golf Club absolutely needs to improve?

By: September 8, 2023

To enhance the quality of its services, the Bull’s Bridge Golf Club has taken the first step towards its very first renovation project since its establishment in 2004. McDonald and Sons is the construction contractor.

The Bull’s Bridge Golf Club features a golf course designed by Tom Fazio. The owners are seeking to make modifications and improvements to the course.

Bull’s Bridge Golf Club was the first golf course in the northeast to be designated as a Certified Silver Audubon International Signature Sanctuary.

The golf course master plan recommends adding new bunkers to eight holes (1, 3, 6, 9, 10, 13, 17, and 18). 

On these and other holes, bunkers will also be repositioned to improve visibility or removed to address changes in equipment and enhance course playability. 

Other on-course work includes

  • selecting bentgrass fairway,
  • short-cut approach expansion,
  • and building additional tees on select holes. 

New back tees will be added on holes 2, 9, and 18, and new forward tees on holes 3, 6, 10, and 17. The new gold tee distance will be about 7,200 yards.
