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.

Fairways and greens are in great shape. Traps have way too rocks. If this was my regular course I'd take a free lift. Nice practice facility, welcoming pro shop. Not a big fan of guys bucking for tips at a CC. Expect it at a public course. All that said if you are contemplating playing her, DO IT!

Played a shotgun-start round on a beautiful Saturday morning. Very nice driving range, & the best practice putting green in Arizona, subpar chipping area though. Very well designed course, especially the green complexes. Course was in great condition & very reasonably priced (for January in Arizona). Totally enjoyable round. Will definitely return soon.

We enjoyed our day. Course was in good shape. Greens were true and fast. No real problems getting round this course. Wide Fairways, big greens. Practice area was in great shape. It's a members Course, markings are minimal and yardage harder to find.

Course was decent, but there are better options in the area at a similar price point. Pro shop staff made a point to chastise us for using a third party booking.

Greens smooth and reasonably fast. Course was typical Sun City style, not flashy but still enjoyable.

Played yesterday. Was out here this time last year and played here. Good course with great greens and tees. Fairways were good but not up to standards of the other 2 courses I've played this week ( trilogy at vistancia and golf club of estrella). A lot of the bunkers were firm. Greens are challenging. They start you off in a shotgun format. They should put in a practice bunker by the chipping green.

Rain the night before so cat path only which makes for much slower play.. This is a very good course with every thing a player wants. I feel this is one of the very best courses on the West side. Course is in great shape and a pleasure to play.

The course is in beautiful shape and we love the free range balls that come with the price. We showed up to find out there was a 35 minute frost delay that carried into the afternoon, which was fine, more balls to hit. For a beautiful course like this the sand traps would be a lot nicer without all the rocks in them.

This is a very good golf course, especially for the money. Very playable. Challenging without beating you up. Course was in very good shape, especially tees and greens which is a priority. Staff was as friendly and accommodating as any we have experienced in the valley. The girl who handled our golf bags was cheerful and very helpful. We usually travel around the valley to play golf and rarely repeat a course during our winter season, but we will definitely repeat this one.
