18 holes | par 70 | 6039 yards | Parkland
The course at Bedford & County Golf Club combines more than 100 years of mature woodland with an undulating landscape. The standard of upkeep in all seasons and weathers has made this a connoisseur's course. Tree-lined fairways and strategically placed bunkers lead to the well-manicured greens with many a subtle break. Another hazard to look out for is the brook that meanders its way through 4 of the 18 holes. The course is a genuine challenge for golfers of all handicaps.
Less than 10 minutes north of Bedford town centre.
This course shows its age, given the advance in golf equipment. Some very good feature holes, but far too many 'mickey mouse' holes are also in the mix. Some of the Par 3's are just pitch and putt material, and the par 5's very short by modern standards. Condition is variable, and it's not a good course for any winter golf.
