Great Course if you can get a deal
The course is beautifully maintained and each hole almost feels like its isolated from the rest. You rarely ever see other golfers. I see the typical normal rate is $120, but if you get a deal its great.
They have new carts (although the last two times we've played, the GPS system isn't up and running on them yet). They offer waters in attached coolers and sometimes even a cold towel when you are done with your round.
Beverage and snack cart is cash only (they will take a cart, but they have to go back to the clubhouse to process it).
Great course layout and course was in great shape. They take care of their players with free range before the round, towels and bottled water in the cart, and a cold towel at the end of the round. Would highly recommend.
Doubled Down on Belterra
In my second trip to Belterra, things were more of the same, for better or worse. Covid 19 is keeping things on the course less than ideal. I guess no rakes in bunkers means that maintenance doesn't have to take care of them??? Wasn't in many, but noticed that grass was growing in a handful of them and others were not in great shape....although some were good. Greens could use some speed, but I assume that the course's shortcomings are due to possibly being short staffed a bit due to these difficult times...? I love the layout of the course. It is a challenge, for sure. Staff was friendly and attentive. Really, with all that is going on in the world, it was still very nice...It could be better though.
A must play
I drove an hour just to play this course and it did not disappoint. I got it on a GolfNow deal but I would go back and play this course anytime it was such a great experience. My only complaint is that the "beer cart" did not take a card. However, as we are in the middle of a pandemic that is understandable.
When you play this course you will do yourself no justice if you play anywhere but the tips. I shot a little higher than average but it made the round quite a bit more challenging; thus, more fun.
The course was in great condition. No broken tees on the tee boxes. The e look electric cars were in new condition. The only negative was the GPS was not connected in the carts and we had slow groups in front of us and no ranger helping them move faster
Play here every year and for the first time in years I have to say I'm disappointed. The bunkers were atrocious. There were rocks of various sizes in every one that I saw. Some had weeds growing out of them and the staff made no mention of this prior to tee off. The greens were sponge like and slow, with aeration holes still showing. I'm not sure what caused the decline, but its in the worse shape of any course I've played this year. I'll call before driving 3 hours round trip to play there again.
Two words...slanted tees!
This course has slanted tees. The right side of the tee boxes are slightly...maybe 2 or 3 degrees...higher than the left side. This promotes a block to the right. This is not needed. The course is pretty and plenty tough enough without the tricked up tee beds! It has high rough and plenty of bunkers. The fairways are wide enough though BUT...the slopped tee boxes are a real pain! Play the course...just be careful on the tees.
Belterra is awesome
Great course. A hidden gem. If you’ve never played here then you are missing out. Always in great shape and rarely crowded.
Probably the best course I've ever played. Definitely top 3.
Course plays long
Beautiful course, but it plays super long. Played the pro tees, scorecard listed course as 6400+ yards, but even with solid drives we were hitting 5i+ into the greens.
First round at Belterra
First visit to Belterra. It has been an hour from Louisville for 16 years.Had heard several people talk about it over the years. Golf Now made it affordable.
. The layout is challenging. We played at 2:30. After a rainy night the course was cart paths only this morning but wide open this afternoon.. There was no standing water. The greens were excellent. Several pin placements were tucked behind traps and several were wide open on the front. The tees were the best I have ever played.
Belterra is a great course but very challenging. I wish I had my 250 yard drives from long ago. The soft fairways cost me some strokes. There are a few holes that are cart path only due to the hills. One long par 4 took 3 shots and 2 trips to the fairway below the path and 2 trips up steep hills back to the cart path.. Give it a try. Everyone was friendly and the food at the attached casino is excellent.
Great course odd employees
The course have been closed for quite some time because of covid-19 so it was in pristine condition. I have never played a fairway that did not have divots nor have I ever play greens that did not have any ball marks. The greens were very soft and easy to deal with but I'm sure that's because they haven't had to do the routine maintenance which was okay because it made me feel better about my game. It was a truly surreal experience. Dealing with employees was a different story altogether. When I went to check in I was informed that in order to ride by myself I would have to pay them an extra $10 fee even though I booked by myself I traveled from another city for an hour and a half by myself but if I wanted to stay safe I had to pay a charge. So I asked the guy if I want to stay safe I have to pay a fee and he informs me and that Indiana is in Stage 5 of reopening so everything's over and they are returning to normal and charging people to ride alone. I have never ran into that at any other course even before I was never charged to ride alone. I complained about the fee and I was going to pay the guy the fee but as I was getting my money out he told me not to worry about it so I'm not sure if it's an actual policy or not. no matter what these people tell you this covid-19 is not over please stay safe and read up on all the current information.
Nothing negative about the course but be prepared if carts are path only. . Just about less walking if you walk. 90 percent of cart paths sit up 30 feet and are 50 - 75 yards from the center of the fairway. Miss the fairway on the wrong side and you could easily have 100 yards to and from. Would love play again in warmer weather with carts off the path!!!
Rude Rude Rude
Very rude unprofessional staff, made us feel unwelcome there. Only after we paid and after I told them I had just had knee surgery did they say it was cart path only ! The course looked decent but I was unable to enjoy it with all the pain I was in.
Played poorly but honest review
Free range balls
Fairways and tees very good
Greens above average
Very nice cart gps
Cart was going bad ,New cart out immediately
To hard of a walk unless your in shape
Traps terrible - no rakes to help conditions
Shortage of yardage markers in fairways
Need 200 - 150 - 100 markers in center of fairways
Great condition for mid November!! Great layout and beautiful holes. Doesn’t turn around after 9 holes so be sure to stock up on food/beverages but LOVE this course! Go win money against your friends on course then go gamble it away in Casino!!
