My son and I both got haircuts prior to shooting a round of golf. The barber recommended Bella Vista. We followed his suggestion and was blown away by the layout and beauty of the course. The course was in fantastic condition. Greens were undulating and cut to a perfect speed. Prices were very reasonable for such a great course, $64 with cart for both of us. No crowds. We flew around the course. I particularly appreciated the GPS on each cart. Really helped speed our play since neither of us knew the course. We will play this again this week. Kevin & Mitch Kentucky

Played it years ago as the "Blackberry Patch" and loved the layout so i stopped in again and was not disapointed. A few more houses in the one area but far enough away from the course to hinder any shot. Under the new management looks like its working and the pricing is the best buy for the challange this course offers. Playing this course from the tips really puts pressure on the tee shot and forced carries that look worst than they really are and get into your head. If you stray you will pay on alot of the holes fairways /greens alike. Must stop and play this track as its 5 minutes off I-69.

Formerly called Blackberry Patch this course has been renamed, under new ownership, to Bella Vista. Much improvement in course condition and playability has been accomplished in the last 4 months. This is far and away the the most difficult course in the area from the back tees but has become much more playable from the "whites". Plan to use every club in your bag and enjoy the opportunity of creating some imaginative shots. This is a "best buy" for the money.
