About Bedford Springs Old Course

Bedford Springs Old Course, previously named Bedford Springs Golf Club is a Resort, 18 hole golf course located at Omni Bedford Springs Resort and Spa, Bedford, Pennsylvania.

Bedford Springs Old Course first opened for play in 1895. The 18-hole layout was designed by Spencer Oldham. In 1912, A.W. Tillinghast redesigned the course bringing it down to 9 holes. In 1923, Donald Ross redesigned the course again and brought it back to 18 holes. During the resorts extensive $120 million dollar restoration in 2007, the golf course was brought back to the design that Donald Ross created in 1923. The restoration / rennovation was designed by Ron Forse.

As part of the resorts relaunch, an extensive renovation of the Tillinghast/Ross course was undertaken. With the renovation, the course was renamed the Bedford Springs Old Course.

Par for the course is 74. From the back tees the course plays to 7,000 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,535 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 15, a par-5 that plays to 575 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 10, a par-3 that plays to 115 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 15, a 575 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Bedford Springs Old Course is # 2, a 121 yard par-3.
