Bella Vista

Nice course, nice weather, decent value, excellent course conditions. First time playing here and surprised at six par 3s and all relatively short. Definitely helps your score. I would definitely come back and have no problem recommending the course.

Nice course

The course has a nice layout. It wasn't too challenging. It was a little beat up from the rain / flooding we just hand but not that bad. I would definitely play here again.

Be organized

It’s hard enough to get a weekend round in with a sub 4:30 pace, starting every time behind by 15 minutes is a death sentence, if I’m there at the right time make sure I’m teeing off at the time I booked

Horrible pace of play

Took nearly 6 hours to play 18. Cart path only. Marshal was out on the course but no pace was picked up and got even slower on back 9. Usually don’t write reviews but this stressed me out so I had to do it. Nice course set up with some great holes. Some tee boxes in rough shape but a nice course. Don’t think I’ll ever come back due to the pace of play. Maybe I got screwed but it ruins golf.

BV - Ok

Course ok - very wet in a number of places including fairways - greens decent.
Golf cart was very poor - slow & barely made it up small hills

Sand Traps SUCKED....rocky. Ground crew rude!

Had I known the traps were so bad I never would have played here. Multiple ground crew people never stopped mowing, etc. to allow us to play. I've played a lot of fun rounds here, today was a real DISAPPOINTMENT. Not worth over $ 50 to play!

Nice course pace of play is terrible.

We teed off at 8:15 on a Saturday. We had to go back to the pro shop at the turn for something, that was already 2:20 min. We told the pro shop that pace was slow and they said they would tell the ranger. Didn’t help, ended 18 just before 1 pm. Far too slow for an early tee time. We waited on every single shot.

Exceptional!!

It's has been over ten years since I last played Bella Vista and I wasn't disappointed in my return. The course and staff were exceptional.

They suck dealing with GolfNow customers

Arrived 15 minutes early for my tee time as a single. Was told the group I was going to play with turned into a foursome. Made to wait a half hour. Told multiple BS lines and strung along that I'd be hooked up with a group in 20 minutes, then 30 minutes (how do they just appear then disappear?). Finally just went out myself after told it would be over an hour from my original tee time to find another group. Then a twosome magicaly happened. Very disorganized.
