Summer conditions in Fall

Bella is a great track other than #5 and maybe #17, but the rest of the holes make up for it. Wonderful conditions today with wonderful fairways and greens. Starter was friendly and well mannered. Great day of golf!

Wet weather

Bella is normally one of my favorite courses. All the recent rain made it difficult this weekend, the rough was very long and wet but the greens were still super. It was cart path only, which slowed the pace down and the cart GPS wasn't working. Normally $66 is a great value - not so much today but still a great course.

Always fun to play.

Bella Vista is alway in good shape. The tee areas are not crowded with trees, allowing you to hit draw or fade off the tee. Fairways aren’t cut too tight. We play it at least a couple times per season, even with a 1 hr drive.

Not the Bella Vista I use to play

Forget the fact that it was brutally hot. The course was in the worst condition that I have ever seen it in the 15 years I have played there. The rough was unforgiving. Right off the cart path you could not find your ball. my son and I must have lost ten balls right off of the fairway. I understand that it has been a rainy Summer but grass should not be a foot long right off the fairway and two feet long in play. My son and I got very frustrated. even the fairways were were chunked up in many areas. I was really surprised how much repair that this past gem of a course needs. the only good thing was the new GPS system in the carts. I won't be going back this year.

Nice Track

Nice layout, the GPS they have on cart is very helpful, it gives distance to pin and if you touch a area on the screen where you want to land it gives you the distance.

Finally a Reasonable Rate

I have played hundreds of rounds at Bella Vista, mostly twilight on Saturdays at 4:00 PM. This

year the 4:00 PM rate was increased by 40%. 5:00 PM is too late for a twilight rate since you may not be able to complete the round. I have not played there until now when a special was offered at a rate comparable to last year in the 4:00 PM timeframe. The course was in excellent shape but the greens were slower than I prefer. I did not see any improvements that would justify a 40% increase in the rate. However, I will continue to look for specials and play there when they are available

Belle Vista is challenging

Our foursome played at Belle Vista on Tuesday 6/26. To my great surprise it was not crowded at all. We moved within 4 hrs around the course with two high handicapped golfers. Staff is more than friendly. GPS on carts. Greens were true and quick on that day. Topsail had adequate sand in them. I was in enough of them. The laying is challenging but a couple of birdies makes it conquerable. Pricing for seniors.was $40 with cart. Enjoy.

Should adjust to conditions

First off, I love Bella. Great course. However, they should have adjusted rates or warned golfers about the conditions. The rough was not mowed due to rain, greens were slow. The rough was as bad or worse than Merion in the US open in 2013. Just wished they would have adjusted rates or something for their players.

Always Wonderful

I play many courses in this area as a Phoenixville resident and Bella is by far my favorite. Staff is always friendly. The grille is always open for some swing oil before the round and afterwards to tell your stories. The course is always in good shape - great tee boxes, fairways, and greens. The island green is fun and something you start to think about making the turn. If you are a golf fan, you will love Bella.

Great day at Bella Vista

Played as a twosome at 10am on Saturday. Pace was great - short waits on some holes since we had foursomes in front of us but everyone kept moving well. The carts now have a touchscreen GPS which is a nice feature and gives a nice visual of the hole and distance to the pin, not just center of green. Course was in good shape even though it was wet out - challenging and fun. Definitely planning to return soon.
