3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1891

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

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
