Where’s the ranger

The course is beautiful , towering oak trees and sand traps guarding every green and the sand is top notch. I was in several!! My only criticism is pace of play. Front nine - 1hour 50 minutes, back nine - 2 hours 30 minutes!! A ranger on the course would have really been nice. However, it going to be even slower for the groups behind us, As we were putting on 18 there’s was 8 teeing off on #16!!!

A good day for golf

Great golf course in great condition other than a few leaves and twigs left from previous nights thunderstorms.
Multiple tee boxes for all levels of play.
Played 18 in well under 4 hrs. On a Saturday.
If the course was not more than an hours drive I would return frequently.

Course Conditions

This is a good, interesting layout that has a set of tees for players of all skill levels. The course's greens were not the fastest but were perfectly maintained. On several holes, the fairways had become burnt out and patchy, but if you didn't mind rolling the ball it wasn't much of a problem. The mature trees lining each hole provided a pretty frame for each hole and directed the way you were supposed to move the ball off each tee. The $65 weekend rate seemed about right, and if I lived in the area it would be my rotation of courses to play. Would play again if in the area.

Decent track.

Most fairways where in good shape. A couple had dead spots and every hole had hard rough and dead grass up and down the holes, throughout the track. Greens where in great shape. Tee areas where in great shape as well.
Pace wasn’t horrible. Could of been better.

I'll Be Back

Have a family vacation cottage on the other side of Kalamazoo, so this is an hour drive and hadn't taken a ride until now. It's worth the trip. Mid-week, played alone as a single on a hot day, finishing in well under 3 hours. Course conditions were great, despite the recent heat. Elevation changes from tees to greens, Big beautiful trees. Many big sloped greens with large bunkers, but a fair share of small ones too. From the Green tees (6500+), the par 5's aren't long, but the par 3's make up for it. Fair and fun.

Great Course

Paid $53 for it. Great price. Pace was good and conditions were good too. Decently challenging but pretty easy to find your back if you missed a fairway.

A Playable Challenge

Bedford Valley is a terrific course for the $. Drives in play even if little wayward and birdie opportunities abound. Back nine little tighter and sand in play a lot.

Loved the course.

Beautiful oaks

This course is worth the play. A little pricey without the Golfnow discount that I booked. The oak trees are mammoth. Generous fairways and giant greens. Had a great round. Will definitely play again.

Very nice layout

Really enjoyed the course. A nice layout, good conditions and great pace of play. A long course from the back tees but there are plenty of shorter tees to play as well.
