About Corte Bella Golf Club
Located within Dell Webb’s Sun City, Corte Bella Golf Club serves as the focal point of a beautiful 1,650 home active adult (45+) private gated community.  At 7,000 yards, this 18-hole Greg Nash design with wide Bermuda grass fairways is a true championship golf experience.  Lush Ficus, Italian Cypress, and Oleanders frame this classic layout.  While there are over 100 bunkers, the golf course provides an escape from the ubiquitous forced carries and target greens common among more traditional desert golf courses in the area.  The 6,500 square foot clubhouse includes a fully appointed golf shop, limited lockers, grill operation, and expansive outdoor patio area that looks out upon the 23-station driving range.  The Corte Bella Homeowners Association provides members of the community with additional amenities, including hard surface tennis courts, pickle ball courts, swimming poll, weight room and day spa, as well as a full service restaurant and catering space, to complete the Corte Bella homeowner membership experience.
