Bedford Valley Country Club
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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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,
