Omni Bedford Springs Resort - Old Course

Course Overview

Nestled in the Alleghany Mountains of Pennsylvania, The Old Course at Bedford Springs Resort is a unique blend of history and beauty. With golf roots dating back to 1895, the Donald Ross & A.W. Tillinghast designed course is one of the oldest in the United States. The course underwent a total $7.8 million renovation and restoration of the original design overseen by Ron Forse.


Playing as a par 72 at only 6,785 from the tips, the course boasts a 73.4 course rating. The tough bunkering, mounding and green complexes will punish any golfer who tries to bully their way around the course.


Featured Holes

Hole 4 - Volcano

A par on this 223 yard par 3 can feel like a birdie. Standing on the tee you will quickly see why this is the number 1 handicap hole on the scorecard. Hitting the narrow double tiered green on a steep uphill tee shot is no easy feat.


Hole 6 - Ross's Cathedral

Don't let the beauty of the mountain backdrop on this 358 yard par 4 distract you from the demanding tee shot you are about to face. A well placed tee shot in the fairway can set up a short iron or wedge into the green. Hit one of the 3 well-placed fairway bunkers and this short par 4 can quickly have you scrambling for bogey.


Hole 17 - Ronnie

This 174 yards mid-length par 3 features a fairly forgiving right to left sloped green. Miss the green in one of the 2 greenside bunkers on the left and par becomes nearly impossible with a left pin.


Hole 18 - Home

The finishing hole at Bedford Springs features an excellent risk reward tee shot. Carrying the bunkers on the left will require a well-placed tee shot to a mostly blind landing area but will leave a wedge in. A safe tee shot up the right side will leave a longer iron into a well-guarded and elevated green. Pick your poison.
