First time playing at Corte Bella. We are moving to the community in 3 weeks and I wanted to check out the course and the staff. I was not disappointed. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Given the hot weather, the course was in surprisingly good shape. The greens were generous but a little rough because they still showed some of the holes from a recent spiking. Some bare spots in the fairways, but those should disappear when the weather gets better.

Truly enjoyed playing here for the first time. My GPS took me to a back private gate so I had to figure out how to find the front of the gates community. Once in the right area I was created by the bag drop and shown plenty of parking. The starter got us off early and I was paired with two nice gentlemen, also new to playing this course. We had a great round with pace of play at 4 hours, and I look forward to playing again.

My only letdown was no beverage cart. It's dead of summer and I would have liked to have had an option to purchase more beverages throughout the day. They did have a few water stations and two stations with an ice machine which was awesome!

Excellent condition, although the greens look like the heat is affecting the Rye grass. Black/White tee combo is 6700+ yards, and overall the course offers a challenge to any level of skill.

I had read some of the negative reviews after booking my round and I don't what course they played, but it wasn't here. I was expecting the place to be a burnt out wreck. On the contrary the course is in good shape. On the course the fairways had green grass and were playable. They were not burned out and dead. I thought the fairways were in good shape overall. The greens rolled true. Although, some of the raise greens got me. I missed my approach shot and bounce off. There are some subtle breaks and tiers to consider too.

I played as a single and the staff was very friendly to me from the guy who checked me in to the cart guys even up to the guy at the grill after the round. During the round I ran into a local four-some who let me play through. Very nice people here. The range was in good shape. I had no issues here at all. I had a great time playing and I will be back.

It is summer time in Arizona and the temperatures are rising. It got up to 107 degrees on the day I played. The course offers ice and water free. There is a small ice chest on the cart.

To the "grumpy gus's" that leave the bad review when you shoot a bad round...yes, please play somewhere else. Sounds like you ruin the rounds for everyone else who might have to play with you. BTW. No, I do not work for the course. I do not have a house in the community. I am just someone who wants to play a relaxing round of golf with some nice people.

Course was in pretty good shape for this time of year. Clubhouse staff went above and beyond...again. They are one of the most friendly and helpful clubhouse staffs I have experienced in AZ.

Fairways in good shape, cut low. Rough wasn't too tall, not as challenging to hit out of as winter months. Greens rolling true, in very good shape.

I always considered this course the crown jewel of the sun city area however this time playing I was greatly dismayed. The greens were in poor shape the rough was all different kinds of grass with many long pieces of grass. There was grass in the bunkers also the range doesnt get cut anymore it looks like. Many wear spots by the cart paths just overall the course use to be in 10/10 shape I would say it was in 4/10 shape this year. Many other options in sun city time to move on and find another jewel.

If you want to spend six hours to play a round and be insulted by the pro shop staff, this is the course for you. When we complained about pace of play we were insulted. Course is in mediocre condition. Much better options available.

The course is in decent shape. The bunkers are horrible. They definitely need to add sand and make them more consistent. The greens are pretty good still for this time of year. Overall I would recommend giving it a try.

The greens are terrible...splotchy patches of short moldy grass...like putting on glass; the sand in the traps was like cement. There were weeds all over the course , dead plants and the rocks have disintegrated and in need of re-rocking in many, many places. You are forced to use their carts because of a "liability issue" even though all other courses in SSW and beyond do not have that requirement...a real hassle. The SSW courses are in awesome shape, less expensive and we can use our own cart. This course was a great course 8 years ago, but has steadily declined due to poor maintenance. A real shame!

Course had a challenging layout, but it needs some work. Greens need some work. I putted on the practice green prior to teeing off and hoped that the greens on the course would be better. They were not. Several greens had skinned spots on them which needs to be addressed.

This course is a long drive from where I stayed but was worth it. The staff was welcoming. The holes were challenging but fun. The greens rolled really nice. We played the 8:30 shotgun start. Waited a little but still finished up at 12:20. Would definitely play again.
