Jewel in the Boonies

Played golf in the area for 47 years and never played Bedford Valley until yesterday. Old style layout with gentle hills. Course was immaculate even though it is nearing the end of the season. Perfect day, fast round,, didn't catch the foursome in front of us until the 17th hole. My only regret is that it is not closer to my home! Played the 18 holes in about 3 hours 15 minutes.

Great start to Michigan Golf trip

We really enjoyed playing this course on our way up north. Course was in great shape. It provides a challenge, but doesn’t over do it. The course was beautiful. It has large greens, so you have to be on point with your lag putting. We hope to play here again in the future.

A Michigan Gem

If you like the old style country club courses this is a must play. Thick forest all around the course. Really incredible track, in my opinion. Great conditions, nice tees and firm greens. Great holes and a challenging course. Pace of Play was excellent - since I was the only person out on the course - see photo. Hard to believe that no one else was playing that day. Definitely give this track a try if you are in town, you won't be disappointed.

I will definitely be back

Always a good experience.

I really enjoy Bedford Valley. Fun and challenging layout, very friendly staff, nice pro shop, and they’re often making nice improvements. They were doing some landscaping and tree work when we played, but you can always count on them to make it beautiful when finished.

After playing a few southern courses recently, it felt good to be back on the Michigan turf.

Highly recommend.

Course torn up. Tree stumps everywhere, sticks everywhere

Had major tree removals, counted about 40 stumps on two holes. Greens aerated in spring also. This course should be closed until it is platable. Turf in horrible condition. This is a total mess.

Awesome course

We played quite late in the season after a couple of cancellations due to the weather man; however, the day was nice with a light sweater and the sun came out to make it perfect.
The course is in excellent shape, especially for this time of the season.
We will be returning here again ASAP.

No course ranger

The course is fantastic. Unfortunately they have no course ranger to keep up the pace of play. Our first 9 holes went on pace. However on the back 9 there was an 8 some playing that backed everyone up and our last 9 holes took over 3.5 hours.

Great course

This course is a Perfect Blend of everything. Half is out in the open Sprinkled with trees some elephant grass and the back is cut right through the woods. When you take a divot in the Fairway it's just like butter. The greens are well taken care of and are just the right amount of fast. Love playing there.

A quaint Michigan gem

I played here Mid July and loved it. It is the quietest course I have ever played. Extremely thick forest all around the course. Really incredible track, in my opinion. Great conditions, nice tees and firm greens. The clubhouse was very nice and the staff was friendly. Nice golf carts and they had nice bathrooms out on the course, which was a definite boost to the value. Great holes and a challenging course. My friend and I both loved it. If you are errant, you will lose a lot of balls. Pace of play was nice, everyone moved along well. The hole design really helps move play along. There were not any bottle necks on the course that I ran into. Definitely give this track a try if you are in town, you won't be disappointed. A real treat for locals, as well as tourists,

Nice layout. Great old trees.

Had a great SUNY afternoon. Played in 3 hours. Greens rolled true. Teeboxes in fine shape. Looks like they lost a lot of trees but still a lot left. Long course. Over 7000 yards from tips.

Nice layout.

Greens were in good shape. Watch the grass on them as some downhill putts go with the grain and the ball keeps on going.
