The meticulously maintained golf course winds throughout the community like a sea of velvet green, and neatly groomed cypress trees are abundant. The overall look is very charming, and very picturesque.

Corte Bella Golf
Playing 7,011 yards from the tips, the Corte Bella Golf Club is the heart of this upscale private gated community and offers scenic views and pristine playing conditions.
The course is beautiful, with lush ficus, Italian cypress, olender and other exotic flora lining the well manicured, but well bunkered, Bermuda grass fairways, with water coming into play on three holes.
When Corte Bella first opened, full golf memberships had an initiation fee of $25,000, plus the monthly dues. Currently the course is waiving the initiation fee and offers a 12-month program or a 6-month seasonal program for part-time residents. They also offer a “limited” membership option, allowing for off-time tee times and full use of the practice facilities.
Initiation fees can change with market conditions, so this is a great time to take advantage of becoming a member without an initiation fee!
