This golf course is excellent! The staff is friendly and makes extra effort to ensure you will enjoy your game. The course conditions are excellent and I can tell they take pride in maintaining the course!
First time playing Bellwood Oaks. It was in great shape and the greens rolled very nice! I will be back!
Good price basic course
This was my first round of the year and only 3rd course I’ve played since moving from Myrtle Beach, SC. This course has a very basic layout, but was in really good condition for the price! Greens rolled great! They did a great job following social distancing guidelines. I would play again!
Great open course and very friendly staff. Even through covid the course was nicely maintained and well kept.
Typical Small Town Family-Run Course
Bellwood Oaks Golf Course is a typical small town family-run golf operation, very basic, no frills. The clubhouse/pro shop has about 10 tables, microwaved prepackaged hot dogs and a few cold sandwich offerings. and limited beverage choices. The course itself is in surprisingly good condition. Fairways and greens are well manicured, the greens roll smooth, true, and moderately fast. Flower beds near tees and greens are an attractive touch. The rough is not too thick and is kept at at a low enough height that you shouldn't lose a ball that strays off the fairway. The course isn't long (the front nine is only 3,098 yards from the middle tees), so the two par 5 holes on the front nine play to 480 and 482 yards from the middle tees. Unfortunately, for the most part the layout of the course is disappointingly bland. The first few holes have flat fairways, sparse tree cover, and circular, flattish greens. The course shows a different face, when you reach the 7th tee box, and see some rolling terrain and mature oak trees bordering the fairways. This is really the best part of the course. Ending the front nine and beginning the back you return to the flat, open, boring Bellwood Oaks. The 380 yard dogleg right par 4 11th presents a bit of a challenge. You must reach the dogleg on your drive or be blocked out from the green by a nice stand of oak trees. But a long drive could go through the fairway and leave you in woods on the other side. Hit a 200-225 yard cut shot and you'll be in the mayor's office. Several of the following holes have elevated tee boxes and well-placed fairway bunkers. You won't need driver off the tee on most of these holes. Everything is in front of you, so plan a strategy before reaching for a club on the tee box. The 387 yard par 4 15th is a good example. Two bunkers pinch the fairway about 220 yards from the middle tees. You can choose to challenge the bunkers or lay up short of them. Probably the most difficult hole to par is the 184 yard par 3 17th. You must carry a bunker to reach the severely sloped green. If you go over the green, it is almost impossible to keep a chip from rolling down all the way off, so you'll be chipping back up. Good luck. Bellwood Oaks is one of the more inexpensive courses in the area. Better players may be put off by the plain vanilla and unchallenging front nine. But for the rest of us the rolling and wooded portion of the course, combined with the low greens fee, will have us coming back.
Terrible Customer Service
Several members of my family had played this course for years and became regulars getting to know the people there well. I rented a pull cart one day and noticed something wrong with it but continued, after several holes I asked a Ranger if he could take it back and get a different one. When he came back without one he indicated to me the clubhouse attendant in the clubhouse determined that I personally damaged the cart and would not get another one. When I questioned her after the round she got very belligerant with me and again I was accused of damaging the pull cart. I left and went home to call the manager of the course, who was a family member of the attendant I questioned, he said he would find out more info and get back to me. When he called back he indicated to me that he would be willing to give me a free round, but being falsely accused a second time of trying to physically pull the attendant over the counter there was nothing he would do.
bellwood oaks review
The course was in excellent condition from the tee boxes to the fairways to the greens everything was very well kept. Short par 4's some even drivable and short par fives made the course very fun to play as well. Overall the course very nice and fun to play with a decent practice area to.
Great value, very fair course
Bellwood is my favorite course in the area. Relatively inexpensive, most holes right in front of you, generous fairways, reasonably fast & true greens, plus very walkable. This course is enjoyable for all skill levels, including higher handicap players. Course is in great shape except for a few dead grass areas on some greens. Clubhouse & practise facilities outside the course are marginal at best - go elsewhere for the 19th hole. Still for the price, the course itself is hard to beat.
