The Bellaire Golf Club in Glendale, Arizona is known locally as a great course for the executive golfer. It was built in 1973 and designed by the architectural firm of Lawrence, Hardin, and Nash. This 18-hole course has three sets of tees to accommodate different levels of year round play. Its par 59 championship course measures 3493 yards from the back links and sports a USGA rating of 56.2 with a slope of 90.
This course will work well for those who want a quick round of golf, along with a good challenge on your iron swings. Of the 18 holes, 13 of them are par 3 ranging from 100 to 210 yards. 5 of the holes are par 4 ranging from 260 to 370 yards. The fairways are narrow and lined with out-of-bound stakes. This will challenge the accuracy of your long irons.
Once you get to the greens you will find that many of them are deceiving in the way they break. That can make for some tough putting. The greens have numerous bunkers and there are two water hazards that come into play on the course. The 13th hole is the most challenging. You have to make a 160-yard shot over a water hazard just to hit the green. There is not much room for slack because it will take at least 155 yards in order to carry onto the green. For the average guy, a 5 iron will just about do the trick. For a lady golfer, a 3 iron might make more sense on this hole.
Considering the level of golf, the greens fees are very modest. They range from $12 to $18 if you want to walk, and $20 to $26 if you want to ride.
Finally, this is the right course to practice on if you are feeling simply rusty. There is a full sized driving range, a practice bunker area and two putting greens.
Overall Bellaire Golf Club offers lots of variety for all golfer skill levels along with a family friendly atmosphere and a good reputation among the locals.
