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.

Always Reliable

I play this course regularly with golfing partners who are residents. Rye is growing very well. Green speed is getting close to “normal” a few weeks after overseed. Bunkers could use more sand and grass on tee boxes is taller than I would prefer. Several risk-reward holes make this course a lot of fun!

Great Course

This is one of those courses that you just have to play. Taken over by Kemper this year is only going to make it better

Corte Bella Bella!

Nice course, challenging, lots of sand but often wet and hard. Green a tad woolly and needed to be cut shorter & likely rolled. Great course otherwise for Nov.
Thanks

BellaBang10.25.21

Corte Bella is a very nice course. As we all know these days Golf is trending up in costs, so no matter where you play it is going to be a little pricier than usual. Corte Bella is no different than all the other courses in this respect. If you want to play a nice round at a very nice course and have fun, then this is the place for you. Just bring a Pale and shovel, cause you will eventually have fun in all the sand!!

Good place to play

Played this course a few times these past few months and find it in very good condition each time l played it. Good pace of play, friendly attentants and overall a fun outing. Probably if l had one comment it would be that some of the bunkers are low on sand, but not all of them and that's a common statement about all the courses here in Phoenix about lack of bunker sand.

Great Course

This was a great course and staff was very friendly and helpful. My only issue is that we had to start on the back nine which proved much more difficult than the front nine. I would have wanted to warm up on the front nine.

Corte Bella

Course was in very good condition with the exception of the 17th fairway. Lots of areas without grass and very sandy. All the other fairways were in very good shape. The greens were in very good condition as well as the tee boxes.

Don’t get in the traps

The bunkers are the only downfall of this exceptional course for the $$. Traps have little sand, very rocky and the base is exposed in about 30-40% of the areas
