First time playing this course on recommendation from some friends. It did not disappoint! Greens have been plugged for winter but still fast and smooth. Wildlife abound with deer and Turkey seen early in the morning. (Tee time was 7:50 a.m.). I thoroughly enjoyed this course and i am looking forward to playing it again soon!
The course is beautiful and well maintained. The greens were a bit rough in spots, lots of ball marks (not fixed) and spike marks. Overall great experience!
Casual Golf Reviews
I agree with their claim of being the best kept secret in southern Michigan. This course came highly recommended and it sure didn't disappoint. Scenic layout carved through marshes, woods, a subdivision and also in close proximity to Coldwater Lake. This was a fun course to play with challenging tee shots over marshes and into small landing zones. Firm, fast, undulating greens were tricky to putt on.
Overall Rating 9.62/10
Conditions can't get much better than this. There is nothing I can say that would do it justice. Hemingway could describe it but I can't.
I got there just in time and had the course to myself, lots of play behind me. This is a a really tough course, forced carries, tight, tree lined fairways and fast greens. It does have multiple tee boxes and gps in the carts which helps.
I didn't want the round to end, can't wait to come back.
Twilight rate of $25 for 18 and a cart. Good deal considering how nice the conditions are. A little pricey for me and isn't an amount I would like to regularly pay.
Scenic and challenging
It was a perfect day for golf and the course was in great condition. The layout offers a variety of challenges and the greens were definitely one of them. Hitting your ball with a fawn standing just a few feet away is a special memory
Enjoyable layout with very nice conditions. Challenging but not overbearing. 18 holes as a foursome played in under 4 hours. Friendly staff.
I was forced to pay at the course as well as on here with the GolfNow app. So 81 bucks to play a course that cost 41 was a bit of a punch in the gut. I showed the staff my receipt from GolfNow and they said I still need to pay them as well. The came out to my car to make sure I didnt leave even after I stated I already paid the price to to play....nice course though.
The course is in very good shape. It seems like the course is out in the middle of farmland but when you enter the course/community it is vastly different. It is very beautiful and well kept. The homes that line this course are also upscale and add to the beauty of the course.
The course itself is well maintained, the fairways are a pleasure to hit from and the greens roll true. There is significant undulation in the greens that add to the enjoyment of this course.
I plan to play this course as much as possible whenever I am in the area.
This course is challenging no matter what tee you play from. The course is kept in good condition but, the greens are a little torn up due to golfers not fixing ball marks.
Take the time
Really a fun and challenging course, great restaurant on property.
This course is a hidden gem in south central Michigan. Lots of wildlife, challenging course, with a friendly staff. Carts have built in GPS. The prime rib nachos at Oscar Brown's Tavern are to die for!
With the possibility for rain, we moved our tee time up to 7am. As you might expect, we were the first ones out. It is really peaceful that morning with lots of wildlife out and about. By far the highlight of the day was when the wife made a birdie and I had a eagle on the short par 5 on the back side, #16 I think.
If in the area, would play this course a lot. There is enough variety of challenges for all skill levels.
Lived in this area my whole life and for some reason never played this course. Great layout., lots of wildlife, and maybe the best fairways I've ever played. All the staff was friendly, but especially Jami in the Pro Shop... She was great!!
Great course for the money
Bella is a great course and (in my opinion) the best course in the area of Southern Michigan. The prices to play are very good for what you are receiving and the staff and regulars who play are great people. Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys to play the sport and is looking for a new, fun course.
Wonderful Golf Course!
This is a hidden Gem of a course. If you have not played here Do It Soon!
Super people in the pro shop. Absolutely great course set-up. You can make this as hard as you want to with the multiple tee boxes. Conditions are always well maintained. Greens are very nice and very challenging.
(I do wish people would fix their balls marks more frequently )
The property is very pretty to play through, woods, marshes, water, open areas, a little bit of everything.
After the round there is plenty of choices in the bar to relive/ponder what went wrong with your round.
I would be proud to call this my home course!
Our 2nd year in Coldwater, MI. First time playing at the Bella Vista. The course is in great shape; the greens were soft and true. The course is well maintained. Weekend rate starts on Friday (not Saturday). Friendly staff. Played back tee (just over 7000). Recommended!!!
