Another great course

Played here a few times now and found it to be a very nice undulating course with some testing holes. Conditions are excellent and the welcoming hut can be visited twice on your round for tasty snacks and drinks

Little Gem

This course is so tucked away that it seems like a hidden gem especially as two times visited it seems reasonably quiet.
Great course conditions and a friendly welcome. Open fairways give the chance to really open up the shoulders.

Myself and 3 friends played Beds and County yesterday, it was a really enjoyable experience. The fairways are in fantastic condition, and the greens rolled well, they have recently done some work on them but they still played well. I did find myself in 5 bunkers on the way round and they were excellent to say the least. This is my favorite of all the courses around Bedford.

Fantastic though Busy course, I played on a Friday afternoon and it was very busy,I played in a two ball though had to start on the 11th. we got held up for the last 8 holes due to very slow play from 2 golfers that did not think to let players through. overall a great experience with some fantastic holes, quite a tight course so you had to think your way around, I think I only got the driver out twice. only downside was the state of the bunkers. terrible sand and most were filled with water.

Played in the Bedfordshire County Senior Championships, and the greens had been set up at 10.0 on the stimp meter. They were very fast, but running steadily and true. Avoided the bunkers, but they looked like they have done some improvements since I last played the course. Tees and fairways were all good, and with not much of a breeze, we all should ahve been scoring quite well. Food was very good, and all in all we were well looked after.

Course played really well, fairways well kept and greens very very true and a good pace. A little congested on back nine due to number of players on course but still a good pace of play. only complaint would be most of the par 3's were teeing off of mats when the grass tees looked in good condition.

Reviewed Oct 9 2015

This is a nice mature course, not hugely difficult but certainly with some challenging holes. It is hilly in parts with some very steep up and down fairways. Unfortunately there are at least two crossover points where it is necessary to give way to other players on other holes, and some of the fairways are quite close to each other such that you need to be keeping a watchful eye out on what's going on around you. This is something that I, personally, feels detracts from a golf course and is the reason why I'm only giving this course a 'Good' score. Other than that the club is very organised and claims a full range of coaching facilities. The club house is excellent and the pint of Dunbar I had had been kept well in the cellar. Of particular note is that fact that person who served me at the bar actually emptied my crisps into a bowl before giving me them - something so rare I can't remember the last time it happened to me: impressive!

Very nice golf course in great condition.
Greens were superb and pretty quick. Some very testing holes off the back tees in dreadful weather especially the 10th and 15th( 1 of the hardest par 4's you can play IMHO)
one or two quite hilly parts but overall fairly easy walking.
Staff were very friendly.

The course was wet but the greens fast. No water hazards, but plenty of others.
Some great looking holes and plenty to keep you thinking. Will be playing again if I get the chance.

A local course for me, so I get to play a number of times each year, and I'm always happy to play here.

The course is generally in good condition, although there were a number of hole closures over the winter months. Greens are invariably quite fast, even when it is, or has been raining. There can also be some quite tricky pin positions on slopey greens (15, 17 and 18 are good examples). Fairways are reasonably generous, so not too narrow for those of us who are not always arrow straight off the tee. Bunkers are not the best, but let's face it they are 'hazards', so try to avoid them.

Clubhouse services are good, but we were guests of Bedfordshire County Golf, so possibly we were looked after better than usual.

The course was in very good condition, especially for this time of year. No temporary greens and only a couple of temporary tees. It is a challenging course for any golfer, whilst not being too difficult for the mid-high handicappers like me either. I would highly recommend it.

Enjoyable

Played here for the first time as part of captains day from Chalgrave manor. From the moment we got on the first tee I thought this could be good. Great work on tee boxes, fairways and greens all were impeccable in my opinion. Even had a complimentary Ice cream halfway round. I?d recommend playing here and look forward to our return.
