It's tough to get up and down after misses on either side of the par-3 17th hole on the Old Course at the Omni Bedford Springs Resort in Pennsylvania.

Fantastic Course

The course was in superb condition, especially for this time of year, and it was truly a joy to play! Everything from the resort itself to the staff in the clubhouse and course, to the layout and care of the course is top notch. The staff was friendly and helpful, which is always a plus. Highly recommend and look forward to playing again soon!

Worth the price

Played as a single, so I waited quite a bit between shots. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Course conditions were magnificent, the routing was wonderful and the views were very scenic. One of my favorite courses in Pennsylvania, second only to Oakmont of the courses I've played.

Incredible golf experience on a wonderful summer day

If you like classic golf course design on a marvelously manicured track, with soft yet speedy carpets of luxurious fairways and greens, check this out.
It would be hard to find a more striking 18 holes nestled in a landscape of creeks, streams, woodlands and fescue.
I loved this course……

Would Play Again

I played at the full rate because I anticipated a more crowded course later in the day even though the greens (and fairways?) were punched. Knew about the greens but not the fairways because of the alert on GolfNow. Recent rains meant the fairways were wet so no rollout and a few plugged shota or mudballs. A long day in terms of second shots; I had 200 yards in multiple times with no 5 iron (do not carry it) and a hybrid which was .. uncooperative. A lot of scrambling to make bogey with only 3 GIR. Liked the layout and would like to play under fast and firm links conditions as long as greens are a realistic speed; I can imagine these are the only defense and are quite fast in the summer.

Not worth it

Greens were terrible. Not worth playing. Greens were the worse for a 4 star resort, and the group I golf with all said this is not a well maintained course

Wondering if you have the wrong course here.... this course's conditions are always superb. Consistently ranks high nationally for course conditions as well, for good reason.

This review can't be the right course. This is one of the best maintained course in the USA!

Bedford Springs Old Course

Excellent course, especially for the teeoff price that I got. Green aerated recently, so a bit bumpy. Overall, It was a great day on a beautiful course in late fall.
