  • This was built as a high-quality course. Unfortunately the clubhouse burned down and was replaced by a trailer. So go for the gold but relocate for any 19th hole activities. Staff was friendly. On a.....  more »

  • Utterly fantastic. I understand the course was in bad shape a few years ago, but it's absolutely perfect and stunning now. Lots of variety in the holes... some more challenging than others. The scenery is incredible. Thanks for a memorable experience!
  • Bell Bay is a well designed course that deserves some more recognition than it receives. However that is also what makes it special. It is under rated. The course is now starting to see the benefits of regular maintenance work that was seemingly neglected for a few years. The fairways and greens were in excellent shape as of mid-August. While the status of a more permanent club house remains up in the air, the one on site serves the purpose! Find the time to play this course!!
  • Stunning course... absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for a wonderful day!
  • 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.
