To say that The Bridge is one of the most “unusual” golf clubs in the country would be stretching the point, but it surely does distinguish itself from classical establishments in the New York area, holding the reputation of an “eccentric alternative” to the game of golf. First of all, the inner design of the clubhouse looks like an art museum – a distinctive touch of aggressive futurism, which is reflected even in the course’s layout.
The course itself was designed by Rees Jones in 2002 and features 18-holes amidst the “ruins of the old racetrack, flag stations and discarded tires” – definitely not something a player would expect from a golf layout. This design aims to catch a contemporary atmosphere of the club, so classy golfers may find it unusual (and not in a positive way) to land their shots here. The golfing season at the club lasts from April to November.
Annual membership fees start at around 600$ – which may seem like a joke to prospective guests. On top of that, there is no strict dress code or code of conduct on the club’s territory – visitors can wear jeans, T-shirts or whatever they like. Sounds bizarre? Maybe. Fun? Most definitely, as the club’s regular visitors include musicians and artists.
