“Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary”

Bella Vista Golf Course
Ranked #4 of 19 things to do in Coldwater
Attraction details
Reviewed July 8, 2014

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 holes. They have a nice clubhouse with drinks and snacks. In an adjoining building they have a full bar and restaurant (Oscar Browns Tavern). Many non golfers come to the course just for the restaurant (http://www.bellavistagolf.org/club-house/menu/).

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 terms of difficulty but remains a formidable test.
With it's popular pricing this represents a true value in golf.

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 fun. There's a restaurant now, Oscar Browns, where you can grab a bite before, during or after your round. Overall, Bella Vista is a fun day of golf!

The course doesn't have the velvety fairways of the high cost clubs, but it does have beautiful country to golf through. The wood bridges through the woods and over low grounds are beautiful scenes. Do bring insect repellent. Some holes are difficult, but fun.

Bella vista (formaly blackberry Patch) golf corse is a refreshing golf experience. This golf course/property has been 100% renovated. New owners who put the customer first. The golf course is always in excellant shape. The food at Ascor Browns Resurant is excellant and the staff know how to treat people. This is a must play. The course layout incompasses marshlands and wooden bridges, so there is some small carries to some fairways. The new owners have made the course more golfer friendly by taking out some trees and building more friendlier tee boxes.I love this course and I know you will too. TIP: they have GPS on the carts and DONT be discouraged by the remote location . It is well worth it. Take copleland road east off I-69 and turn left at Quimby road , course entry on the left. Enjoy!
