A Fred Couples Signature Course, designed by Boom-Boom working with Jeffrey Bauer Design, The Bridges Golf Club is in Gunter, near the FM 121/Highway 289 intersection, about eight miles from Van Alstyne, about 19 miles north of the Dallas North Tollway.
The club, part of a development called The Bridges at Preston Crossing, celebrated its official grand opening earlier this week. Brauer described the layout this way:
"It has a modern length at about 7,600 yards from the championship tees and some other modern features like fairway chipping areas. It also features many old-style design characteristics like square cornered tees and smaller steep banked grass bunkers. Many of the greens have great contours while others are protected by sharp banks rather than the traditional sand bunkers."
The Bridges is a semi-private club; membership info is available here. For daily fee players, at the time of opening the peak rate Monday-Thursday is $45; Friday-Sunday it's $65.
