Bedong (pronounced as /bɪdŋ/; Chinese: 美农) is a small town in Kedah and located 12 km to the north of Sungai Petani, Malaysia. The Permaipura Golf & Country Club is located in Bedong.

Due to the town's name spelling being irregular from the standard Malay alphabet, Malaysians who are not familiar with the town will call Bedong as /bədŋ/ or /bɛdŋ/ instead of the actual pronunciation which is /bɪdŋ/.
