Florida Golf Course Review


Bella Collina Golf Club - Florida Golf Course

Bella Collina in Monteverde near Orlando, is a gorgeous private facility (with preview opportunities) nestled into orange groves and woodlands overlooking the vineyards of central Florida, with 2 nearby lakes( Lake Apopka and Lake Siena) affording wonderful vistas. The property has a village type feel, with Tuscan style architecture implemented into numerous buildings that house the pro shop, dining area, locker rooms and full service spa. For more info on the club and amenities that are available with home ownership, visit the properties website by clicking on www.bellacollina.com

From the valet parking that is offered to the upscale amenities that are available here, visitors will realize that this is not your typical golf experience. Walk around the property a bit and explore the dining area and lounge - or have lunch or a snack on the outdoor patio. Your clubs will be waiting for you on a cart when you are ready, and the rangers will direct you to the full service practice area.

The Nick Faldo designed championship layout features six sets of tees with the tips playing to a challenging 7594 yards and a formidable 142 slope! Alternate sets measure 7270 yards/138 slope, 6920 yards/136 slope, 6504 yards/131 slope, 6021 yards/122 slope and 5455 yards with a slope of 115 from the forward tees. Most golfers will choose the member tees - but at over 6500 yards be prepared for some long par fours.

Water only comes into play on 1 hole, but with all the sand bunkers approximately 84) the water features are not needed to build a challenge here. The fairways are often open and very rolling in a traditional valley style, but different from a typical Florida links design in that sweeping dunes are consistently part of the terrain. Golfers will find many uphill approaches that lead to sprawling and undulating green complexes.

There are some forced carries but they are reasonable in nature. Length off the tee and correct placement on the approaches are vital to scoring well here. A good tip is to go for the flags, as shots landing on the incorrect portion of the greens will often lead long lags with a significant amount of break. Miss the greens and difficult chips from the surrounding swales and mounds will challenge your efforts to par.

With this open design, wind is often a factor. Take advantage of the yardage markings on the sprinkler heads - measured to the front, middle and back of the greens, and note the flag colors which indicate which portion of the putting surface the pin is located. We highly recommend a round here. For more info, visit our page for the course with direct link to their website by clicking here.
