Just telling you that blackberry patch was changed to Bella vista golf course. I haven't been there in a while but i know they widened the fairways which to me cuts down on the challenge of the course but it should appease the masses as it was very easy to loose a lot of golf balls before

Had a chance to return to this course a year or so after first playing here. We had three foursomes that particular Saturday AM. The course was full, but speed of play was excellent. The layout, as suggested in my title, is nicely incorporated through woods and wetlands. The topography of the course allows some nice, subtle elevation changes on... More

This is one of our home town courses and it is spectacular. Tough fairways, over a lot of marsh shots and extraordinarily challenging greens. Of course, then there's Oscar Browns Tavern at the end of the day. Good bar food and adult beverages. Prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere is also good.

We attended an outdoor concert at Bella Vista. It was a wonderful experience!! There was a good crowd to enjoy all the fine music. The bar and restaurant performed as well - good food and good service! We'll do that again.

I had the opportunity to play Bella Vista a few weeks ago with a close friend and was totally amaized. I felt like I was on the PGA tour. Bent grass fairways were groomed better tham my head. Greens were very tricky and slick. I can't say enough about Ron Cary. Very nice guy! Kelly runs an awesome bar and... More

Over the past three years, the course has always been in excellent shape and is getting better as the owners continue to invest in improving quality. The greens are challenging but have a consistent pace and reasonable speed. Every hole provides a challenge and includes tee boxes for both low handicapper and senior golfers who no longer drive the ball... More

Beautiful course taking full advantage of nature. We not only enjoyed playing a wonder golf course but had wild life all around us to include deer, rabbits, squirrels, turtles, turkeys and numerous other birds. Course was in excellent shape when we played. Has a nice mixture of easier and more challenging holes. Hitting straight definitely comes into play on several... More

This course has been on a 12 year roller coaster ride since inception. The new owners have brought the conditions back to it's best yet largely thanks to the hiring of green's superintendent Dan Drennan. The old pro shop has been transformed into an inviting restaurant and bar serving quite acceptable fare. The golf course has been "softened" considerably in... More

Years ago as Blackberry Patch, this was a great course. Then, like so many courses, it fell on hard times. However, under the new owners, Bella Vista has come back. The course is back in shape. Alan, the pro, is helpful and does what it takes to make your experience the best it can be. The course is challenging and... More
