This was a strange golf course. It wound its way through a series of cookie-cutter developments that resembled the set of the Truman Show. Forget walking. The holes were strewn across several different neighborhoods and the ride from green to tee was often longer than the holes themselves. The greens were in good shape but unless you really love target golf and "quirky" designs, its not great value for money.

a very penal layout - lots of wetland, thick woods, houses...

it is even harder since there is no range so you are warming up on the course.

the pace of play was awful.

the 12th hole may be the dumbest design I've ever seen.

This course is very close to my house, but I cannot bear playing here that often. I will not play it on a busy weekend or on a super discount day, because it can be a torturous, 3 hour 9 hole round. On a quiet evening it can be worth playing the front 9. The new owners, the Murphy's, are keeping it in good shape, but the unique design by a handcuffed Brian Silva cannot be overcome. Most holes require an iron off the tee to a specific target and then a precise approach shot to a small, undulating green. The 5th hole is a good par 4 that you can hit driver on, just be aware of the pond on the right and thick woods on the left. I do not play the back 9 anymore, as is the case with many people. It is a hike just to get to the 10th tee and once on your way it is a series of unusual holes that will have you questioning why you are out playing them. It is a horror show of design with harsh slopes and unknown landing areas. If you are a single digit handicap with a curious nature, you MAY enjoy the backside at Bradford. I wish there was a solution for this course to become a decent 18 hole track, but I think that is impossible. Bradford does offer deep discounts on golfnow.com, but just understand that a bargain does not always make for an enjoyable round of golf.

Course was in pretty good shape. Back nine is WAY better than the front. Almost feels like a different course. It's short though - I think I pulled out the driver on 3 holes and I'm not a long hitter. Layout keeps it interesting though.

Play was slow, but I think that was due to a foursome in front of us and might not be indicative of the usual pace.

Staff was amazing from the pro shop to the starter to the bar. I got 3 beers and a hot dog for $16, too - you can't beat that!

I enjoy playing Bradford CC from the blue tees. I can grip it and rip it, or lay up and use longer irons for approach shots. The layout is tight but makes you a better/ smarter player. And when Golf Now offers it up for $17 for a twosome for 18 with cart, who can pass that up? Not me!

The course is ok to play. But it's target golf on a lot of holes .you need to hit to small areas on 10, 12, and 13. The greens are in really great conditions, but a lot of unkept areas around the greens. Fairways ok, but nothing special. No driving range, and cart parts are a bumpy ride. Worth the price if only under $30 . Would not pay full price to play in a field with 18 sticks stuck in the ground. This is a course that if you hit all the target spots, you can shoot a 79, as I did one day. Or a 91 as I also managed to do. Lost about 6 balls that round, but found 15 in the woods. The 19 th hole was ok, but only 1 person behind the bar and he was also doing the cooking.....the best part of my round was when I got in the car.....

I paid a ridiculously low price from GolfNow ($18 w/ cart) so for that price, it was outstanding. Not sure it's worth full price but it was a pretty well-maintained course. Really strange layout on the front 9, driving through neighborhoods and cul-de-sacs, and there weren't a ton of driver opportunities (I'm not a big hitter but played the blues and still found it to be a bit short), but no complaints from me.

Course was in good shape but it was a long round due to a fog delay earlier in the day.... Greens were nice and rolled smooth fairways were in good shape but a few tee boxes were pretty rough. The course is pretty short but narrow in spot and demand accurate shots.... I like playing here a few times a year although there are better options in the area.
