The course at Corte Bella Golf Club was done in a desert style but avoids the target greens and forced carries that are at some desert courses in the area. It has a classic layout on a beautiful terrain of ficus, Italian cypress, and oleander, creating a scenic ambiance. The designer, Greg Nash, kept traditions of classical golf architecture in mind and made a course that champions the strategic player. Both the immaculately manicured greens and the wide fairways are well protected by bunkers on this course, making accuracy on the approach shot a priority. Water hazards come into play on three holes at Corte Bella Golf Club.

Poor Pace of Play

I'm not sure why a course would allow a fivesome on a Sunday, but they did, and the group never let anyone through. Thus, it made it a long day for the four groups that were continuously stuck behind them.

Course was in pretty typical shape for this time of year, with some rough spots in the fairway and around the greens. I'm not sure it's worth the higher price tag compared to some other public courses in the Sun City/Sun City West area.

Weeds

Really good course could be an excellent course with a little more maintenance. Weeds popping up around the tea boxes. Which the tea boxes are nice but the edges have weeds sticking up all around them and weeds around the course takes away from the beauty of the course. Nitpicking but with a little grooming it would look fantastic

Great layout.

Good shape for the time of year. Wide fairways but still had plenty of obstacles and bunkers. Staff was very friendly and professional. Will definitely go back.

Corte Bella

I would recommend this course, but beware of the countless sand traps. It can be a bit of a challenge if you have trouble hitting the ball straight. My biggest negative is Golf Now charges a huge booking fee, which ended up being more than a single players cost. Ouch!

A former Gem

We had been wanting to play Corte Bella for some time now and got the chance.
1. This is not a $90 course. Maybe an OK value at $50.
2. They have 'gas' carts that have seen better days. Noisy and smelly. They are trying to portray a Country Club setting and those carts are definitely a muni setting.
3. Bunkers are unusable. You should consider them ground under repair.
4. Aesthetics - Beautiful setting flowing through beautiful homes - however, the transition areas are horrible. Dead and unkept trees, leaves and shrubs - weeds everywhere and they don't even pretend to address the erosion on the banks. Surprised that the homeowners allow that. Dragging those areas bi-weekly would really make a better look.
5. Greens - firm and good speed
6. Fairways - a little scrappy and didn't appear to be near. 5 inches.
7. Approaches - ok but should transition to a lower height as the fairways.
8. Grill - Excellent! Great staff.
9. Proshop staff friendly and knowledgeable.
10. The course is in need of updating. Bunkers need total renovation; tees - mow them - greens - some light verticutting and light top dressing would be a plus.

In sum, the course does not hold up to a high community standard especially for the price.

The owners /HOA should put some capital improvement funds to bring this course to the standards it appears to have had in the past.
