Rating 72.9

The course at Corte Bella Golf Club was done in a desert style but avoids the target greens and forced carries that are at some desert courses in the area. It has a classic layout on a beautiful terrain of ficus, Italian cypress, and oleander, creating a scenic ambiance. The designer, Greg Nash, kept traditions of classical golf architecture in mind and made a course that champions the strategic player. Both the immaculately manicured greens and the wide fairways are well protected by bunkers on this course, making accuracy on the approach shot a priority. Water hazards come into play on three holes at Corte Bella Golf Club.

Very good course

Very good course and very good value. Pace was good. The staff was not overly friendly. The young girl handling the carts was running around getting stuff done. You could tell she was new and inexperienced. She was being talked down to in front of me by her boss man. I felt bad for her. He had not respect for her or for me standing there listening to him chastise the girl. It wasn’t cool. Also we finished in under 4 hrs at 5.PM and the grill was closed. That wasn’t what I expected either. Good golf though

Sandy course

Great layout. Lots of sand, requires high shots to clear the sand in front of a lot of the greens. Was not expecting a shotgun start but staff was helpful.

Nice course

Very enjoyable round with. The course was in great shape. Wide fairways forgive the errant drive but you need to steer clear of the many bunkers. Several choices of tee boxes which are in perfect shape. Love the way they build those.

It’s just ok

This course is ok. The reviews on this course and the website made it sound as if it was top notch. It is just ok. That is not a bad thing, but you should know what your getting. Fairways are ok. Greens are very hard. Driving range is nice. Chipping and putting areas are just ok. Don’t overpay for this course, you’ll be disappointed if you do.

Classy golf course

You may pay a little more for this course, but it is worth it. We joined a shot gun, so excellent starting time. We were greeted by a friendly woman setting up the carts who sincerely helped us find a cart, pro shop and so on. The course is well maintained in a beautiful setting.

Nice course but....

Great course and, for the most part, great staff. We had perfect weather but ....this was easily the most pretentious group of members we ran into while touring multiple courses in Arizona, This is a private course and we were pleased that we were allowed to pay top dollar to play. Perhaps they're just not used to "outsiders" invading their course but we sure got some "looks" and not many smiles. I think the grumpy woman in the snack bar thought we were going to run away without paying. It all became very uncomfortable.

Conditions?

Yes, we got a lot of rain. Yes 16/17/18 should have been closed. But cart path only was ridiculous. I ended up walking and there was no need for CPO.

good value, very friendly staff.

I chose this course as it was within 10 miles of where we were staying in Peoria. I wasn't disappointed. Very friendly staff and course conditions for mid February were good. Water comes into play on only two holes. Greens were in good shape and not slow. Unlimited range balls and a great practice range helped to shake off the winter rust. I recommend this course for an enjoyable round of golf.

Tough Love Setup for Greens

The course was in good shape but I played in morning shotgun which was delayed ~1 hour due to frost. That is not the clubs fault but the pin placements were set up for the afternoon (Tough Love Tournament for Valentines Day) & were extremely difficult. Most of the pins were on severe slopes & totally unreasonably. If you missed the putt it might roll ~50 ft down the slope. We quit putting after 3 putts/green. Golf Now should have told us this was how the greens would be set up when signing up & Corte Bella staff before going out to your hole to plat

First time

Played the course for the first time. Nice course to play but greens are somewhat difficult and a lot of big bunkers come into play. You better hit the ball where you want or it could be a long day playing from the sand.

Excellent Experience...just a bit slow

So this day was a shotgun start at 1pm which was no problem the last time we played and got a 4 hour round in before dark. We were not so lucky this time as we were behind a group with a limited mobility player who got slower and slower and wouldn't let us play through. Eventually, we dropped a hole and advanced so we could play 17 of the the 18 holes.

I love the course and it is in pristine condition. Go.
