What we say...

3 out of 5

The Bedford Golf Club's first three holes don't really set you up for the rest of the round: hedges, trees and OB are much in play. But after the 3rd you walk into a golfing savannah - the architect has made full use of the flat landscape with eight lakes, big doglegs and sloping greens. Even in late October the golf course was in top condition thanks to the fact that it's based on sandy soil.

Course Description

The Bedford Golf Club has come on leaps and bounds since opening seven years ago.

Their website uses some carefully chosen photos to make the course look mature and interesting. In fact for the most part it felt like open fields. The greens are the saving grace, as they are big and a good pace. We turned up intending to play 36 and went elsewhere at lunch time as we were... read more

Great potential

By lenjuk

The greens are big, undulating (so fun) and in great nick and drain well so a good place to go in a wet spell. However as can be seen in the photo the course is very open and sparse and needs to mature. It is also fairy short  - i did not need anything over a 9 iron to reach all but one of the first 14 in regulation  and on many hit 5w off the tee. (although we were... read more

Played this course for the first time 18/03/10. Super course all round. Good tee's, fairway's and green's, well maintained. Great welcome in both the golf shop and bar. Can't wait to go again. If it was nearer to my home, I would use this as my home course.  Great layout as the course meanders through a housing complex. Course looks open and easy, but the bunkers and water  including... read more
