What's in a Name?
Formerly Poplar Creek Country Club and now Bridges at Poplar Creek Country Club, the name change is derived from several sources.
As part of a multi-million-dollar enhancement project that began in 2010, installation of eight, environmentally-friendly wood bridges lends even greater aesthetics to golfers’ journeys.
Adding "bridges" to the club name also stresses the importance of these bridges taking golfers over critical flood-plain areas allowing the course to remain open even after heavy rains.
Not to be outdone, the new bridges add a golf-history lesson to golfers’ rounds. Four bridges are adorned with plaques of famous amateur golfers Bobby Jones, Chick Evans, Samuel Ryder and Babe Zaharias. Paying tribute to these legends’ significant contributions to the game “bridges” the gap between the club’s storied past, present and future.
As a public facility, Bridges of Poplar Creek Country Club feels strongly about the amateur heritage and future of the great game of golf.
Generations to come will also enjoy recent enhancements, including 15 renovated golf holes, a vastly expanded golf learning center, a major clubhouse renovation and a new, majestic, outdoor events area with waterfall and pavilion.
