For $170 this Golf course should be in much better shape. The greens are in good shape but slow compared to other high end courses in the area. In its current condition the price should be $100.00 or less. There are much better options for the money.
I was fortunate to be paired with two others that had played already the course and that was a huge help as there are some tricky holes. The course was emaculate and the greens fast! Although the track is challenging you really have to screw up to lose a golf ball. Do not pass this by, well worth the money!!
Best of the best in Orlando area!
Annual golf trip to Orlando and we look forward to playing Bella Collina every year! Rolling hills and long vista's are combined with an outstanding routing and course conditions. We can't wait to play again next year!
Bella Collina on Halloween
We had two groups of low to mid handicappers out on a beautiful morning at BC. The pro shop and staff made it a breeze to get checked in and off to the spacious practice area. The practice putting area was really well manicured and fast rolling.
The Faldo design did not disappoint, and the conditions were the best my group has played all year. Fabulously maintained, with giant bunkers and slick greens from start to finish. It was a pleasure to play from plush fairways and fast undulating greens.
Afterwards we ate lunch and settled our bets in a spectacular clubhouse restaurant atmosphere. Their facilities are gorgeous Italian castle like surroundings. Chrissy our server fell right in step with our great experience, making lunch and drinks the perfect ending.
Saturday morning Bella Collina Golf
Nice course with a Faldo layout. Sometimes to much wasteland and very little fairway (when playing of the championship tees. Clubhouse looks like an village from Tuscany. Nice ammenties in clubhouse. Overall nice course only a little overpriced.
Nice, but not great course
This is my second time playing this course. I always expect a challenge when showing up on the first tee and it never disappoints. Greens are challenging, fast, and roll pretty well. Fairways could use some work in places, some real wet areas around the course. Some of the fairway bunkers had been washed out due to a lot of rain in past few months. Overall great day of golf that keeps you on your toes.
Not the "WOW" experience it once was! No longer a must play.
challenging to the low handicapper
7 HC and 25 HC. What a beautiful day for golf. The only reason we gave it a "good" on course condition is all the rain Florida got in the last few days and some of the low spots were soggy and a few puddles in the bunkers. All in all fairways and greens in tip top shape. Undulating green and fairways with opportunities to play off hills and sloping greens. Lots of bunkers and waste areas. Not much water. Long course from roughly 5400 to 7500. Really nice elevation for Florida. Plush golf carts with GPS. Extremely friendly staff from the course to the pro shop to the grill. Great food, beautiful facility with all the bells and whistles and beautiful views.
Nice course, excellent facility
Challenging course with sand everywhere. It will make you hit good shots or pay the price. I thoroughly enjoyed playing it.
Best course I have ever played to date
This course is a must play for alny serious golfer visiting Florida. The staff is top notch and very helpful with anything you may need. The course layout is superb with world class bunkers , greens and fairways. We had the pleasure to meet Hideki Matsuyama on the practice range and then watch him tee off in front of us for a few holes. There was 4 of us and his twosome was soon out of site. I have played golf all over the world and this course just pasted wolfs creek on my favourites list to take the top spot.
Yes, pony u the cash for this one
Even if you play it once, pay up and play this one. It may be a little pricey, but the cost keeps the traffic down I think.
BEAUTIFUL! The bathrooms are nicer than most clubs.
Plenty of challenge and fair as long as you choose the right tees (put the ego away).
Great facility but slow play
I would rate the course all 5 stars but the pace of play was very poor. On a course where it is all but impossible to lose balls, 5 hours where we waited on every shot is inexcusable. I would still come back.
Lots of Bunkers!
A good test of bunker play. Greens roll true. Conditions were good for winter golf when we played. Challenging layout. Surprisingly elevation changes on the course were greater then we played anywhere in the Orlando area. Greens had a good deal of undulations to them. Barely saw a cart girl and she didn't have anything in her cart other then snacks. Played with a twosome who played there before and they found that as great a course as this is, the services being lacking was a common refrain. Amazing clubhouse.
Nice round on a foggy day
The round started with heavy fog. Got better on every hole. Good drink cart , course in great shape with a great deal of elevation change. Not pushed or held up
Expensive, poorly staffed, nice elevations
This course is beautiful and fun due to elevations etc. well kept for now. Under staffed and little help in the club and cart location. It seems that they are getting financially strained since on 50 houses in a location they expected 800 so would not be surprised if they are going broke so. Hope not but the signs are there that they are cost saving on staff.
Both Carts run out of battery during the round...
A hilly course in Central Florida!
Once you get over the amazing clubhouse at Bella Collina, the first thing that you will notice is how hilly it is. This course is the only course in Central Florida that I have played that has blind shots!
The fairways and greens were in great shape. On the greens, the putts rolled true but were a little slow. The greens have significant slopes and tiers, where if you missed from the fairway on the wrong side, a three putt became very likely.
Off the tee, the holes are wide open, but be warned that an errant tee shot can make your approach shot very difficult. For being our first time on the course (playing the white tees - 6500 yards) and not knowing the lines to take on the blind holes, our group found the second shots to be quite challenging.
The course plays much longer than the yardage, especially if the fairways aren't running out. My dad (10 handicap off the senior tees) had trouble carrying the hills off the tee, so the second shots played extremely long for him (mainly hybrids and long irons). On top of that our whole group had trouble knowing the best angle to take.
A couple of additional notes: The par 3s vary in length but all require a mid to long iron, depending on the wind. Each side has a driveable par 4 with deep bunkers, while short, these holes can make for a quick bogey if not played correctly off the tee. These two holes also average out with two long par 4s (both over 440 yards from the middle set of tees).
Overall, a great course that is absolutely worth the drive from Orlando. The conditions are fantastic and each hole is a challenge. While the course plays long, it offers a good mix of holes to keep things interesting. A different course that low handicappers will like but may be a little too difficult for the higher handicappers that don't hit the ball very long off the tee. I would definitely recommend this course if you can catch a lower rate in the late morning.
Great Layout and Ammenities
Fun course to play. Very challenging from the tips. Course was in mediocre shape for the green fee. If you're going to play, book the afternoon tee time for $60 and save a little.
