Later renamed the Bridgewater Golf and Country Club, it served the area well for 70 years until BGCC opened Osprey Ridge during the last great continental golf boom of the 1990’s. Though the dream of a high caliber championship course was finally realized in 1998, this goal was not easily achieved. There were many years of frustration and setbacks as various options were considered. Hopes of expanding the old course were deemed impractical.
Finally, an economic impact study in 2010 called Osprey “an economic engine of Lunenburg County” concluding that “Osprey Ridge provides an important economic impact that benefits the community at large, notably in terms of employment, expenditures by visiting golfers, generations of tax revenues, fund-raising for local charities, and the attraction of new residents who create substantial economic activity”.
Osprey Ridge has etched itself in community history and also the golf community as a whole, and will continue to do so for many years to come.
