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.

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.

A Windy day, course was in good shape for just being over seeded. Cart path only today, but was never held up or pushed, pace of play was fine.

Enjoyable day playing with a couple of gentlemen from Denver

Player friendly

Nice course. Wide driving areas with multi-tiered greens.

Unfortunately the course was not quite ready to mow down after the overseed. Very wet, fairways and T boxes were very long, and greens were slow and shaggy.

It looks like the new grass has come in awesome so I expect the course will be mowed down and will become firmer and faster within a week or so.

Bring your best putting stroke. You’ll need it.

Manager that checked us in was awesome.

On GolfNow it was advertised as 90 degrees due to recent reseeding. When we arrived to the course there was a sign that read, “Cart path only”. We mentioned this discepanancy to the gentleman in the pro shop. We explained that we booked it based on the 90 degree ad. He was apologetic, and decided to give us a handicap flag because he was responsible for the error in the post. We were so grateful.

Our tee off time was 7:10am.. We were a threesome and got started at 7:30am. We played behind a twosome— who played behind a foursome. The play was moving along considering cart path only.. However, we found it odd that the ranger decided to monitor us. Literally hiding behind trees to monitor our speed of play. We could only go as fast as the twosome in front of us. We finished at 11:17 am

Terrible Greens - Not playable

Was very disappointed in the state of the greens. Staff was friendly and the free cookie was nice but they neglected to state that the golf course greens were not cut and still in the process of transition! Worse than putting on the fairways! Very, very poor golf experience!

Overall nice coarse.

Very user friendly. Play the t-box that suits you and enjoy your round. Only the 17th has a multi-tier green that is a bit goofy.
