Corte Bella Golf Club
2nd week of August 2014
Tremendous value. This is a chance to play a premier course while the snowbirds are out of town. Never saw anyone in front of or behind us.

Holy sand, Batman! Great course that provided just enough of a challenge. Back 9 has more sand in play and felt more like target golf. Many risk vs. reward shots here. Staff VERY friendly and hospitable, from the young man who took our clubs in the parking lot, to the worker who served our hot dog lunches, which were plump and scrumptious. (the hot dog, not the worker). Only down side was the aerification plugs, which would have been nice to know about in advance. Other than that, the cold towels at the turn, ice for players readily available...all made for a great afternoon!

Course was in pretty poor shape. Some bare spots and watered very heavily. Even the sand traps were watered. Greens bumpy and still showing aereation marks which was not listed on Golf Now by the course. Greens would be extremely challenging if they had been in good shape. Want to go back and play for the challenge the greens present. Wide, wide, wide open t shots which I loved. Course needs to heal.

nice course as always
Fairways a little dry and a couple of weeks since greens were punched but be realistic beginning of August in phoenix what would you expect. Other than that course was in good shape and staff was friendly as always.

Nice greens! Course was in OK shape.
It's your typical Sun city golf course. There are some nice holes and the course was in Ok condition. Could be better. Like all Country clubs, probably losing money. It's not too difficult and you need to make your shots and putt the greens. The greens were nice.

Great course, an honor to play there, some staff concerns
Corte Bella is a great layout and is in excellent condition for the middle of July in the desert. This is one of those courses that rewards accurate drives with clean straight forward shots to the greens. If your are having an off day off the tee, you are hitting over traps all day to get to the greens. Too bad there is not more shade around the tee boxes!! This is a semi private course and I am very thankful to the members to let us play there occasionally!!
There were two staff concerns that bothered me. 1st, we booked a threesome @ $35.00/ea. The following day, we found a forth to join us. Went on to golfnow and the 1 remaining spot was available, this time for $30.00. Booked!! We arrived and took care of the threesome. Our forth arrived about 15 min later. Found out today(Monday), Tyson in the pro shop charged $35.00 instead of $30.00. Its only $5.00 but we were quoted 30. Bothersome!! The second issue was the marshal hiding behind trees, looking through binoculars to enforce the tucked in shirt policy. We were ok but saw him checking on the group behind us. Man up!! These issues will not keep me from coming back!! this is a good test of golf!!
