Great Conditions, Great Value

Bedford Trails is a hidden gem in the Youngstown, OH area. The course is always in good condition, the greens are quick, the fairways and rough cut and layered appropriately. The tee boxes need and are getting work. There are an abundance of LARGE trees on 2/3 of the holes....you better have a low-punch game. Some of the greens are large and flattish...others are small and very sloped.....STAY BELOW THE FLAG! It has a nice mix of lengths, dog-right and dog-left, and only two par-5's, each stretching over 500 yards. The staff is EXTREMELY friendly and will do anything to help you out. Prices are fantastic, and they run golf & breakfast (or lunch) specials. The pace of play is always good and the marshall is fair and friendly. It is VERY MUCH worth the effort to find it and play it.

This course is a bargain compared to other courses in the area

I have golfed many courses in the area and Bedford Trails by far has the best bang for your buck when it comes to being a quality course without breaking the bank.

Too many leaves

Great little trace for practice your short game as it has great smallish greens. You can certainly lose a ton of balls in the late fall. They were very busy with back hoes and dozers pulling out stump of trees that were on the perimeter of the fairways. All the while the fairway and light ruffs had enough leaves to lose your drives unless you have them marked really good..Still I really enjoy this course for the money spent.and the staff is very friendly

Fall golf

The course was as expected for fall with aerated greens and fairways. We have always enjoyed this course and today was no exception. You expect a little challenge with fall golf. Would recommend the course.

Very crowded and the grass/dirt is tough.

Playing this course is like playing in traffic. People everywhere and hard surfaces summarize this course. There were people waiting to play, people lined up to tee off, and people waiting to putt on every hole. Some times we had to wait up to ten minutes for the people in front of us to finish (they were waiting for the people in front of them and so on). The course was way over booked, and the grounds are a little too rough. It can be a good value if you catch a cheap deal, but the frustration of their staff mowing while you putt, the trees being trimmed while you chip, or the 82 other people trying to play around you can make the course not worth it.

Hello and thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round as this is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve and use your comments as guidance in doing so. Thank you for playing Bedford Trails Golf Course. We hope to see you again soon.

The course was ok.

The greens were decent. The fairways were very dry and because of no fairway watering they were extremely hard and dry. Some fairways were tight but a fair layout.

Bad Course, Worse People

In 30+ years of golf, I’ve never experienced anything like this place. First, the course itself. Goofy design. If you hit it more than 200 yards or so off the tee, you might as well leave your driver at home. Every other hole seems to dogleg, and instead of turning where you would typically shape a driver shot, any driver hit well will go through the fairway and end up in the trees. And they apparently love to put the holes in the middle of the most severe slopes of every green in an effort to trick up the greens just to make the course seem a little less easy. The course was among the most poorly maintained I’ve ever played. Fairways are virtually indistinguishable from the rough. Bare patches EVERYWHERE, including large sections of the greens. But none of those things are the reasons I’d suggest people avoid this place like the plague. Rather, it’s the terrible staff that will keep me from every going back.

When I arrived this morning, there was no starter to be found. The guy in the pro-shop directed me to No. 1 tee, and everything seemed fine. I played the front pretty quickly as a single with basically nobody in front of me. When I made the turn, everything changed. Turned out they’d been sending a league off the back 9. That’s fine; I get it. I’ve run into this before, and my experience has always been that players making the turn basically just merge into line with the folks who are starting on the back. Play tends to slow down a bit, but it works. In this case, however, a player from the league apparently complained to the starter (who had shown up since I went off an hour or so earlier, I guess) because I was sitting at the 10th tee waiting to continue my round. Instead of telling her that I was making the turn and had the right of way to continue onto the back 9, the starter empowered this lady to approach me and basically yell at me that I had no right to go off the back because they have a league and have all the tee times. Now, there was no indication on the website when I made my tee time that I wouldn’t be able to play the back 9. And when the pro-shop took my greens fee, they made no indication that I would not be able to play the back 9. And this woman was very rudely insisting that I get off the back 9 because she was somehow more entitled to start her day there than I was to continue my round. Not wanting confrontation, I headed back toward the pro-shop in search of the starter. When I found him, he told me that I couldn’t play the back 9 because of the league. He told me I should have sought him out and asked to go off on 10 first when I teed off earlier in the morning ... like that’s my job despite having been directed to No. 1 by the pro-shop staff! Then he challenged my integrity, insisting that I couldn’t have teed off when I told him I did because he would have seen me. Nevermind that he was nowhere in site when I paid my greens fee, came out of the clubhouse, loaded up my cart and headed to the first hole at 8:30 a.m. Then he tells me that my only option is to wait until there’s another opening on No. 1 and play the front 9 again ... which might not be for half an hour or more because they had groups lined up to play the front. He was wrong, though; I had another option — to unload my clubs from the cart, get in my car and head home ... vowing to never return again to this course where they clearly don’t know what they’re doing, don’t care about the quality of the course or the experience, and are just happy so long as they’re raking in that sweet, sweet league money.
