Played yesterday. Was out here this time last year and played here. Good course with great greens and tees. Fairways were good but not up to standards of the other 2 courses I've played this week ( trilogy at vistancia and golf club of estrella). A lot of the bunkers were firm. Greens are challenging. They start you off in a shotgun format. They should put in a practice bunker by the chipping green.

Rain the night before so cat path only which makes for much slower play.. This is a very good course with every thing a player wants. I feel this is one of the very best courses on the West side. Course is in great shape and a pleasure to play.

This is a very good golf course, especially for the money. Very playable. Challenging without beating you up. Course was in very good shape, especially tees and greens which is a priority. Staff was as friendly and accommodating as any we have experienced in the valley. The girl who handled our golf bags was cheerful and very helpful. We usually travel around the valley to play golf and rarely repeat a course during our winter season, but we will definitely repeat this one.

Greens were smooth and fast.

Greens are also undulating with humps and bumps and at least 2 tiers on each.

Difficult 2nd shot course. Wide fairways made it very playable for all levels off the tee.

Corte Bella is the best course located in Sun City West’s actively adult community. Located in the gated community of Corte Bella. The course conditions are always pristine and worth the price of admission, provided of course you purchase through GolfNow’s HOTDEAL, otherwise the price of admission is a bit exorbitant, especially during peek season. All in all it’s a beautiful course that plays long from the tips and provides a stiff challenge for the avid golfer burn enough forgiveness for the beginner. The pro shop is stocked with name brand foods at fair prices. If you’re in the area Corte Bella is worth a try.

The people at the check-in counter did not tell us there was an hour to hour and half delay until AFTER we paid the fees. After we paid he then told us there was a an hour to hour and half delay. Our tee time was at 12:15. We did not get to tee off till 2:00. With the delay we did not get in all 18 holes. Steep price to pay for 14 holes!! Please, in the future let golfers know prior to paying fees, then we could decide whether not to play.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this course for several years, After a difficult summer of maintenance the course came back with a vengeance and was in fantastic condition. However, yesterday they course was not score able and far too difficult for seniors or any a amateur for that matter simply because the greens were cut ridiculously fast. Too fast to enjoy. One putt was a typical example,,, I putted slightly uphill with just a gentle tap and it ran up and past the hole about 2 ft then rolled to the right and down the green to about 23 feet from the pin. No one can putt these greens unless each were fortunate to go into the hole. Another 8 ft putt came up about 18 inches short then rolled back past me about 12 ft. They must have been 12 to 14 on the stint. I cannot enjoy this course as long as the greens are this difficult to enjoy. This is a senior development and seniors should be able to enjoy a round not be punished for hitting a good shot. Few greens held an approach, hitting in the front portion then running off the back several feet. I am hopeful they will return this beautiful course back to the playing conditions it has been for several seasons. The new greens keeper must like to punish golfers rather than reward them for a good shot. I am a senior, 80 yrs of age, and generally shoot between 76 and 82 but yesterday I quit keeping score losing a stroke on every green. they also need to take the rocks out of the bunkers. I want to enjoy this course again when they correct these factors.

The Course is in excellent condition. It is a playable course with numerous challenges for the better player. At the same time, it is very fair to the less skilled or one who has lost some distance over the years. The Outside Staff is excellent, catering to the players' needs.

Outstanding overall experience. I will play there again.
