Bedford Springs Old Course


Omni Bedford Springs Resort in Pennsylvania is proud to be home to one of the country’s first golf courses. Dating back to 1895, our restored, historic course offers an experience of the highest caliber to rival the most private of clubs. Overlooking breathtaking views of the Allegheny Mountains and Cumberland Valley, this remarkable course spans the work of three golf architectural masters—Spencer Oldham, A.W. Tillinghast and Donald Ross.

Bedford Springs Old Course has undergone a total renovation, overseen by noted classic golf course restoration architect Ron Forse, restoring it to its original course layout. A round of golf on these historically significant tees is a must-play for golf enthusiasts of all levels.

The Old Course is a completely restored and historic golf course featuring bentgrass tees, plush greens and well-manicured fairways. We also have a dual-ended practice facility available for all guests.

Designed by Spencer Oldham, Par 4
Designed originally by Spencer Oldham, playing in the opposite direction, this opening hole adjacent to the clubhouse is inspired by Tillinghast’s flair with a square-shaped green featuring raised corners.

Designed by Spencer Oldhamt, Par 3Named after the hole designer himself, this creative hole protected by Shober’s Run has been on property since 1895.

Designed by A.W. Tillinghast, Par 5
Oldham’s original Victorian set of “S” and “Donut” bunkers, combined with signature Ross green complex with plateaus, swales and mounds.

Designed by Donald Ross, Par 3
This renowned and original 1923 Ross hole demands a steep uphill shot to a narrow double-tier putting surface, often considered the toughest Par 3 on the course. “A Par 3 here is like making birdie on a short Par 4“ said Gene Sarazen.

HOLE 5 oaks
Designed by Donald Ross, Par 5
Weaved through 80 year-old oak, hickory, and sycamore trees, this double-dogleg retains its Ross shaped green that is protected by five bunkers.

HOLE 6 ross’s cathedral
Designed by Donald Ross, Par 4
Beautiful intimidation - this original Ross gem, with new fairway bunkering, is the only completely tree lined hole and is polished off by another double tier green.

HOLE 7 shober’s run
Designed by Donald Ross, Par 4
No bunkers, but still a classic Donald Ross challenge which rewards a strategic tee shot placed near Shober’s Run. Mounds surrounding the green create a tricky “rolling” edge.

HOLE 8 overbrook
Designed by Donald Ross, Par 4
While relatively short, a precise iron shot is required for this tight Ross green that is protected by five bunkers, one of which is chest-deep.

HOLE 9 meadow
Designed by Donald Ross, Par 5
Located in the open area of the course, this short par five is reachable in two but sports a demanding Ross-inspired putting surface where a Swale separates 3 separate plateaus.

HOLE 10 gulley
Designed by Donald Ross, Par 3
Visually daunting, this original Ross hole consists of a 55 feet deep ravine separating the green and tee. With a double-tier green, the Gulley is always an opportunity for an ace.

HOLE 11 lang’s dale
Designed by Donald Ross, Par 4
Eight mounds of fescue lining the left side of the fairway, three distinct sections of fairway, and an archetypal Ross green making nearby chips almost impossible.

HOLE 12 sweet root
Designed by Donald Ross, Par 4
With a right to left tilt, this fairway is protected by two Rossian side by side bunkers. The green is defined by a grouping of five mounds on the right, original to the 1923 design.

HOLE 13 long
Designed by A.W. Tillinghast, Par 5
A simple, yet unambiguous name. On the left side of the second landing area force design incorporated a replica of the famed St. Andrews hell bunker, found on its long hole 14th.

HOLE 14 tiny tim
Designed by A.W. Tillinghast, Par 3
Playing in the opposite direction in 1895, Tilly used the green and added his bunkers and tee. The center Ridge was added by Forse Design in the course reconstruction as it appeared in the Tillinghast book,”Gleanings From the Wayside’.

HOLE 15 bunker hill
Designed by Spencer Oldham, Par 4
Slightly raised above the original Oldham 1895 green, the diagonal ridge was made stronger. Large mounds around the green create stark dropoffs and tricky lies. No bunkers needed at the green.

HOLE 16 hole o’cross
Designed by Donald Ross, Par 5
While cross bunkers are the predominant feature, one cannot ignore the green shaped like a Maltese cross that was inspired by Tillighast’s 14th green at the Valley Country Club.

HOLE 17 ronnie
Designed by A.W. Tillinghast, Par 3
Eliminated from the layout in the 1970s, this completely rebuilt hole requires a precise iron shot over fescue, wetlands and a deep bunker. Forse Design executed its construction using a large mural found on the wall of the original 1923 clubhouse.

HOLE 18 home
Designed by Donald Ross, Par 4
Also added back to the layout after being removed in the 1970s. This remarkable closing hole, featuring a Ross “S” shaped fairway with the most bunkers of any hole, ends the golfer’s historical journey through our course, but leads them back to our hotel where even more history awaits.
