Nice course, more of a links style but would play there again without question.

Bella Vista was a very nice course and honestly a lot more difficult than expected. Everything was in good shape, just a few spots that were extra muddy/wet, due to the way the course slopes there were a few spots saturated but these were few and far between. I would certainly play this course again and the value for the weekday tee time was good. Would’ve liked a little more spacing between holes but it’s just my personal preference as to the style of
Course I like typically but all in all, Bella Vista was a
Good golf course, fairly challenging at certain spots and this made for a Fun round of golf. Would recommend to anyone to at least play here once.

Has been in better shape.

Bella Vista is one of my favorite public courses in the Philly metro area. Unfortunately the conditions this year haven't been below what I typically expect from this course.

The pace of play was painfully slow. We teed off shortly after 3pm and didn't finish until after 7:30.

Procedure improvements needed

This is and excellent golf course and one of my favorites! However, they need improvement on the Covid procedures as it takes forever to get your golf carts! We waited 30 minutes for 2 carts and most courses have them readily available and disinfected! Having to wear a mask while waiting outside to get your food at the window is completely ridiculous particularly after 9 holes when you are hot! I just played Golden Oaks and everything went much smoother with no mask required at the outside window. We may not play Bella again until after everything is over.

Great value

Awesome course for the cost.

Carts have gps that show other carts for aiding with blind tee shots. Fairways are in great shape, rough is very challenging.

Only complaint is the condition of the greens.

All of the par 3 or downhill approach par 4’s were so beaten up you couldn’t trust a putt from any direction.

Overall I would play again but would hope their greens maintenance improves.

In good shape, fun layout

Course was a good shape, greens rolled fair/quick. Challenged off some of the tee boxes, bunkers placed in challenging spots. The putting surface was a huge positive! Would play again, especially on a Monday where the pace of play was extremely fast (3.5 hr round)

Great Course Terrible bunkers

Love Bella but the inconsistency of the bunkers is brutal, some of the bunkers are so loaded with sand it’s hard to walk in them let alone blast a shot onto the green. Other than that the course is awesome.
