Sunday afternoon my fiancée says to me, “why don’t you go golfing”, gotta love this girl! So I texted my buddy from high school and asked if he wanted to play a round of golf at Bristol Harbour. His first response was that was too expensive, but when we checked we were pleasantly surprised to find out it was only $25 for 18 holes AND a cart!
Off we went and even more to our delight we found that there were hardly any other players there. The greens had been “punched” for the winter, but we were still able to play. The greens at Bristol are second to none and the entire course is very high caliber. I had a fairly decent game shooting mid 80s.
I’ve been asked what my favorite hole is at BH and I have to say probably hole number six (Par 5 downhill and lots of water) or 13 because of the drive and the drop after you turn the corner (about 60 degrees). The course is beautiful and was not busy at all in the off season. The golfers we ran into were mostly members who were just playing or jumping around the course to play their favorite holes. Great, great course. I did hit 11 sand traps, almost one on every hole! Keep in mind the off season prices you can get for a great course–$25 for 18 holes and a cart with GPS.
