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.
