Challenging course

This course is challenging no matter what tee you play from. The course is kept in good condition but, the greens are a little torn up due to golfers not fixing ball marks.

Hidden gem!

This course is a hidden gem in south central Michigan. Lots of wildlife, challenging course, with a friendly staff. Carts have built in GPS. The prime rib nachos at Oscar Brown's Tavern are to die for!

Pristine

With the possibility for rain, we moved our tee time up to 7am. As you might expect, we were the first ones out. It is really peaceful that morning with lots of wildlife out and about. By far the highlight of the day was when the wife made a birdie and I had a eagle on the short par 5 on the back side, #16 I think.
If in the area, would play this course a lot. There is enough variety of challenges for all skill levels.

WOWWWW!

Lived in this area my whole life and for some reason never played this course. Great layout., lots of wildlife, and maybe the best fairways I've ever played. All the staff was friendly, but especially Jami in the Pro Shop... She was great!!

Great course for the money

Bella is a great course and (in my opinion) the best course in the area of Southern Michigan. The prices to play are very good for what you are receiving and the staff and regulars who play are great people. Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys to play the sport and is looking for a new, fun course.

Wonderful Golf Course!

This is a hidden Gem of a course. If you have not played here Do It Soon!
Super people in the pro shop. Absolutely great course set-up. You can make this as hard as you want to with the multiple tee boxes. Conditions are always well maintained. Greens are very nice and very challenging.
(I do wish people would fix their balls marks more frequently )
The property is very pretty to play through, woods, marshes, water, open areas, a little bit of everything.
After the round there is plenty of choices in the bar to relive/ponder what went wrong with your round.
I would be proud to call this my home course!

Great Course!!!

Our 2nd year in Coldwater, MI. First time playing at the Bella Vista. The course is in great shape; the greens were soft and true. The course is well maintained. Weekend rate starts on Friday (not Saturday). Friendly staff. Played back tee (just over 7000). Recommended!!!

Very nice

Enjoyed this course! Take extra golf balls. Can be narrow in places. Placement shots are key. Greens a bit slow but undulating.

Beautiful Course!

Bella Vista is a gorgeous course! I have had the pleasure of playing here quite a few times and have loved it. At times very challenging and always a great time. there is a nice mix of ups and downs, plenty of hills and winding fairways. Some of the fairways get a little narrow off the tee so a straight tee shot would be best. Water comes into play a few times and lots of woods to contend with. Always see lots of geese, cranes and deer every time I have played here. The staff have always been very friendly and helpful. The pro shop is not one of the biggest I have seen but nicely stocked and there is the tavern right next to the pro shop for that "making the turn" beverage or snack. The fairways and greens have always been in very nice condition. It is a rather long, spread out course so riding is usually the best way to go. I prefer to walk whenever I can but at this course I have always gotten a cart. I would definitely recommend this course.
