If you like to get 18 holes in before work or everything else you need to do that day, play here. We usually tee off early morning first or second and on the weekdays since this course gets very busy due to the location and popularity. It's not a long track but time to time you can bomb a driver or three wood with confidence. Have your irons and short clubs figured out, if not the greens and surrounding areas will prove formidable even in the fall and winter months.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Best course in the area, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

The course is well laid out but fairly short and tight.The fairways are lined with tall trees. There are no houses on the course. The greens are good but due to heavy play the fairways have lots of divot marks. After heavy rain the drainage is questionable.The staff are pleasant and helpful. The 19th hole is well stocked with a good selection of draft beers.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

We played this course ONE full month after they punched the greens. It seemed like they punched them 5 days ago. The pace of play, 5 and 1/2 hours. Bottom line what city official lets a superintendant punch the greens when the weather is the darkest in history and the coldest in history. Just because the the calendar says punch the greens who says you punch the greens? A FULL refund would have been in order based on the pace of play alone. Three groups on tees? The city of Bellevue should be embarrased to own such a facility.

Many beginner golfers play Bellevue Municipal Golf Course. The staff is friendly and helpful. The course is a bit short but stil gives a challenge to the lower handicapper. The course can slow 4 1/2 to 5 hour round for weekdays and over 5 hour round for weekend.
