View Tee Times

The fourth of the five Gull Lake View courses was designed in 1965 by William Mitchell and was purchased by the Scott Family in 1988. This 18-hole facility is one of Michigan's most frequent championship sites. The classic design is known locally as "The Big Course," with huge greens, large bunkers, and fairways lined with mighty oaks. Golf purists rave about the course's shot values and overall challenging layout. Bedford Valley has been host to the Michigan Open, Michigan Senior Open, Michigan Maxfli PGA Junior Championship, Michigan Publinx State Match Play, and the NCAA III National Championship. With a practice facility, professional staff, and a friendly atmosphere, Bedford Valley is a course you will want to visit many times.

Gull Lake View's Bedford Valley Golf Club won Michigan Golf Course Owners Association (MGCOA) "Michigan Golf Course of the Year" Award for 2010

Gull lake area There are better courses for the money then Bedford Valley. Yarrow is much better and the slow play at Bedford is something that needs to be addressed. September 17, 2013
Old School There is a reason Golf Digest gives Bedford a 4.5 star rating. Beautiful rolling layout - no blind shots, 30 yard wide fairways with deep rough and large deep bunkers with great sand I played it all the way back at 6980 yards - it was fun however the wind was up and I misclubed a few times. I asked the pro shop how the 17th hole - a 230 yard par 3 was the 18th handicap hole and they just chuckled and understood - # 11 is a 232 downhill par 3 but all carry due to a bunker across the whole front of the green. The greens were large decently fast and true. My only complaint was a few tree limbs have grown out into the fairway and you have to move the ball off the tee left to right and they over hang into the fairway which gives you even less room to hit the fairway. The second shot on the last par 5 on the back has zero bailout on the left due to water / swamp all down that side and you have to move your second shot left to right to get to the 100 yard marker there is another large limb reducing the area to move the ball through especially if you are trying to get home in 2. Overall it's hard but a marvelous golf course. September 3, 2013
Great track, well maintained and very friendly staff. A beautiful day and a beautiful course that has been well maintained. Greens were moderately quick but still receptive to scoring irons., Putting was somewhat tricky but greens were well groomed and putts held their lines. Fairways were in very good shape and the tee boxes were well marked and fair. Pace of play started off a bit slow but picked up quickly. Overall, it was a great round on a true gem of a course! I highly recommend playing here! September 2, 2013
Nice course, beautiful setting Nice course for the Golf Now price, wouldn't pay full price. Fairways and greens nicely mowed, not too tight or fast. Lots of huge bunkers, some with not much sand in them, easy to scull it. Very quiet beautiful setting. Saw a Red Tail Hawk so close could just about touch it. Overall a very enjoyable round of golf. Will play again as long as get Golf Now discount. September 2, 2013
Love this course Bedford Valley is a right up there with the best courses in the Battle Creek/Kalamazoo. August 13, 2013
Nice Course I enjoyed Bedford Valley verty much. It is a very secluded course so it is easy to get lost in nature. The course was well maintained and the staff was friendly. July 12, 2013
Well maintained but ultimately unchallenging course I was looking forward to playing this course for a while but upon playing found myself satisfied with the layout and scenery but ultimately unchallenged. Not a hard golf course, even during a rough round of some bad shots still shot 74. June 23, 2013
Course was in great shape Course is challenging but fair and forces you to make shot decision instead of just hitting the ball. I will play again, June 12, 2013
