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.
