Where2Golf says: 

Bedfordshire Golf Club: Just to the west of the county town of Bedford, you'll find two recently established 18-hole golf courses. Bedfordshire Golf Club, not to be confused with The Bedford Golf Club (located just over a mile away) has its roots in the 1890s. An enforced move in the late-1990s brought the Club to its current location in Stagsden, where an enjoyable and picturesque golf course, academy course and modern clubhouse facilities have been established. Located in rolling rural countryside, the Bedfordshire course is laid out on a gentle incline on one side of a pleasant valley. With an absence of housing in this rural area, the course naturally makes its way across gently undulating terrain, which is at times quite open, at others a little more tree-lined. As a relatively new course with many fairway-lining trees planted during its creation, the degree of golfing challenge will continue to increase as the trees mature and grow. Good bunkering and fairway flanking rough provide the principal hazards, with a couple of small ponds also threatening alongside a couple of greens.

Did you know?

In 1891, Guy Pym and others founded the Bedfordshire Golf Club, which used fields adjoining Brickhill Farm about a mile from the centre of Bedford. The course at Brickhill was large enough for nine holes, but by 1895 an alternative site was found at Biddenham, sufficient to lay out 18 holes. The course probably remained unaltered until 1924 or 1925. In the 1990s the freehold owner of the old course at Biddenham, decided to develop the site for housing. In September 2000 Bedfordshire Golf Club finally moved into its new home in Stagsden, and was officially opened by Laura Davies.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
