Our good friends at Bulle Rock invited us out for a review and knowing what a fantastic course it is, how could we refuse?
Playing this course any time is a challenge but on this gusty windy spring day, it was a SUPER challenge – but with that being said, playing Bulle Rock just about any time IS a treat and we gladly accepted the chance to review the course.
You’ll notice from the moment you arrive, that you are treated as a true guest with the staffers happily welcoming you to Bulle Rock. You’ll probably be very excited and can’t help but notice the fine clubhouse and locker rooms prior to your round. Arrive early and get some range time – this track has first rate facilities to warm up prior to your round.
On this day, we started on the back nine and because of the wind and decided to play the blue tees measuring 6360 yards. With a slope of 138, we knew it would be tough – but hey, it’s Bulle Rock!
I always seem to remember a few holes and from Bulle Rock, I remembered #12 which is a mid-length par 3 with water all along the right side to catch any misses there and a large trap to the left. On this day, we had a strong left to right wind (i.e. blowing everything to the water) which we only laughed at…of course I smoothed a very fine iron to the center of the green while my playing partners didn’t… so, I had the laugh here…unfortunately, this was one of the few good holes for me…which is why it’s included in this write up! Of course #12 follows the long par 5 #11 – which played nearly 600 yards today but with the wind, it wasn’t so bad.
A couple of others that I recall, #1 will greet you with one of the shorter par 4’s on the course, followed by the a very scenic par 5 – you know the type, beautiful view as your ball flies straight down the center – pretty views everywhere…right?
Anyway, we managed to get around this absolutely wonderful track and headed to one of my favorite places – hole #19.
Bulle Rock reconfigured their bar/restaurant several years ago from a rather large open bar type place into separate bar and restaurant areas. The “new” bar is quite nice and features some fine views of the golf course and the brew was mighty tasty…but then again, isn’t it always after a nice round of golf?
Bulle Rock is always in pristine condition and they really make you feel good out there.
Bulle Rock is in the Waggle Golf Pass – why not pick one up and give them a play! Take it from me; you’ll be glad you did!
