All around a great time!

First time at Bella, great condition from start to finish. Very friendly staff, awesome yardage touchscreen on every cart as well. Course layout is not too difficult, shot my avergage of 92; a lot of tough bunkers though. Overall a fun course to play, a nice establishment with respectable patrons. Definitely give a recommendation to anyone!!

Really nice fairways and greens

Super nice course, fairways and greens are the best around in my opinion. Bunkers were all swimming pools but it did just rain the night before.

Challenging Course

I played here with my group on a recent Saturday afternoon. The course gets a lot of play, especially on weekends. We had to wait an extra 15 to 20 minutes just to get golf carts. No fault of the management, but it did delay our start for a while. The course is in excellent shape overall. Most tee boxes and fairways were fine. Greens were in very good shape and appear to be well-maintained. Some bunkers still had puddles of water but most were overall in decent shape.

There is a diverse array of challenging holes with varying terrains. On Course water would’ve been helpful on a very hot day. The cart I had was rundown and difficult to steer. However, Overall, a great experience and I would definitely return.

Bunkers are a joke!

It’s really hard this time of year to mess up course conditions but I have to say for what they charge the bunkers are not up to par. Pace of play was fine. I would probably play here again but would have to get a deal.

Pace of play

Course is great worth the money BUT I wish the Rangers and staff would have spread out the huge outing that was in front of us. Normal round should be around 4 hours we ended up finishing close to 5 and 1/2 hours. We passed the Ranger mid round and he never said anything to us about either skipping hole to move quicker. The temp was in high 80’s and there weren’t any water stations to cool the players down.

Tough but fair

We enjoy Bella Vista. Conditions were very good, pace was fine for a busy public course. It is a challenging but fair layout. I have to say that the rough was too long. The rough made play harder, but also much slower because even balls that trickled into the rough were hard.
Cut that rough ! Love the course!

Took 5’hrs to play. Group ahead of us had not idea how to play ready golf and just too backed up. Clubhouse for the golfers afterwards has always been a disappointment. Huge place for weddings. Tiny afterthought for the golfers. Greens a bit slow today for
My taste but in great shape. Course had some very interesting holes and the island green.

Nice course but challenging under windy conditions

The course is excellent and the staff members were very friendly. However, one local resident in a house near one of the greens was very mean to players.

Great Course

I always enjoy playing Bella Vista. The course is in great shape, the greens roll very nicely. It's not an easy course but it is a fair course.
