My husband and I played here this morning and we were pleasantly surprised by the conditions of the course! We have played here several times before, but this was the first time this year. With all the rain we’ve been having, we were worried about it being too wet/soggy to enjoy, but that was not the case! The course was lush and although it was wet in some areas, the grounds crew has really done a great job in roping off areas and maintaining areas the best they can. It’s well worth the money and we look forward to playing there again soon.

Overall this course is maintained very well. There has been a lot of rain recently, so there were some areas that were moist. The staff is extremely helpful, welcoming, and courteous (From the pro desk to the groundsmen). The owner even took a few moments to see how my round went and if I enjoyed the course. Rate of play was on pace for my skill level. I found this to be a nice experience overall and would definitely recommend a try! The pro shop is well stocked also, in case you need to pick up something before the outing.

This course is cheap....that's why people go there. You always get what you pay for. One of the three 9-hole courses was closed due to the conditions. The other two courses were so wet, you couldn't walk in some of the places. Staff is extremely nice, but the course was bordering unplayable.

Pretty well maintained course. Very nice bunkers. Course was very wet but that’s to be expected in early June. Staff was friendly checking in and they have a nice bar. It’s a little strange how the red and the white courses are almost right next to each other; the layout can be confusing at times. There was only one par 3 on each 9 holes; I prefer a couple more. I would give it a 4.5/5 overall if possible.

Weather was a little on the chilly side and greens were aeroted which made putting a little challenging along with the leaves falling but fairways were blown off . Fun course with some challenging holes. Would definitely play the course again and would recommend to friends.

Played the red and gold courses. Red course was smooth sailing. Good shape and no waits. Gold course greens were freshly aireated. Also, Gold course has more trees so there were muck more leaves. Play the red or white if you go at this time of year.

I like this course however they could really use a ranger or 3. People cut in front of others and slow play is the norm. Be careful when booking a tee time - they do not tell you if there is an outing. Fairly easy course but overall good value.

First off, the value for the money out weigh the negatives. It can be a tight course, with balls flying from one fairway to the next all over the place. It is 27 holes, but probably should be only 18. Greens were good, most tee boxes were good. All in all, a great time.

My father and i just wanted to play a quick 9 holes so we picked bello woods due to they have 3 seperate 9 hole courses. Things where going great through 3 holes. Course was in good condition. We got stuck behind a 4some snd they wouldn't let us play through which was rude. No ranger out to inform which was troubling. Other then that good place to play.

This is a nice enough course. Brand new carts. Club house and bathrooms are clean! This day the second cut around the greens had a lot of tufts but otherwise was in pretty good shape. Fairways are close together..so errant drives had others playing from our fairways.

As a side note: Ladies don't get much advantage on the White course and there are a number of VERY long par 4 holes (355-399). So unless you drive 200+ yds it is impossible to get to GIR. Will play the Gold course next time.
