  • The course is in very nice shape now. The greens were just cut and fertilized, and though a hair slow because of the treatment, they were still very smooth and true, and easy to putt (surface-wise that is. The breaks were a little tricky). It is a VERY beautiful course–especially the back nine– and well worth playing. The pro shop is just a trailer, and there is no club house or dining at all.
  • The review from Jim Doyle on Google Reviews is unfair. Last year the greens were rough for the first month or so due to a very harsh winter. Le Portage was equally affected. The greens were fine after that first month. I suspect they will be good from the start this year as the winter wasn't very harsh.
  • TO ONE AND ALL……DO NOT…..REPEAT…..DO NOT BOOK TO PLAY BELL BAY GOLF RESORT……played there August 3, 2015 @ a ridiculous price of $247.00 for two people (cart included) and was totally ripped off. The course had all players start on the back nine as the greens were terrible…..upon starting the second nine (first nine normally), the greens were so bad, they were literally UNPLAYABLE. Had any player started on the 1st tee, ALL PLAYERS would have requested a refund after a couple of holes as this course is not even worth paying $30.00, cart included. After complaining to the staff after our round, their excuse was that they had a bad winter. If we had been told this prior to playing, we would not have played. WHAT A SHAM, having everyone play the back nine first on bad greens and then playing the front nine afterwards on absolutely unplayable greens is unfathomable……I am a Maritimer as well and it behooves me to understand how they have stooped so low to rip guests off…..unbelievable. This course should be placed on the DO NOT PLAY LIST until such time as the course is once again playable (which will take a couple of years at least to repair the greens and also IF they do not have any further bad winters (their excuse). DO NOT PLAY THIS COURSE FOR A MINIMAL OF TWO YEARS FROM THIS DATE……THAT IS IF THEY REPAIR THE DAMAGED GREENS.
