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.

A long drive, but worth it!

Had not played this course in 15 years and what a treat! Beautiful and well laid out, this course is challenging but playable for all levels with many trees to choose from.

Jerk in pro shop

I booked a round of golf for Sunday, So I thought... but ended up being Monday. My fault completely but people make mistakes. The girl in The pro shop was super nice and was very accommodating. She said no worries we can get you off after the group of member’s teed off. So we paid went to go get our clubs and golf shoes. Drive over to putting green guy with a attitude comes out and says I’ve got to refund your money! My buddy and I are like excuse me? He says your tee time was for tomorrow and I can’t give you that price you can pay double though... when on GN a hour later it was even cheaper than what we just paid. Then the guy short changes us and acted like we were ripping him off for being a dummy who has to count down a drawer cause you didn’t give back the right refund. I’m super disappointed with Bedford Valley for hiring a guy who has NO Customer service what so ever! I run a business myself and if I got treated the way I did Sunday morning I wouldn’t have a job or any customers. Good luck Bedford Vally the guy with the beard in the pro shop will be the death of the golf course. We golfed
there half a dozen times last year. Won’t ever go back again! Then to top it off GN charges me $13 for the tee time! I’m gonna need that money back! Save your money folks not worth getting treated like
Crap from the guy who’s mad at the world!

One of my favorite local courses.

Bedford Valley is a pristine course, providing plenty of challenge. BV is one of my favorite Calhoun County courses!

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.
