Click on image for Bella Collina Golf Club Web Site

Bella Collina is nestled amongst orange groves and woodlands, overlooking the vineyards of Central Florida and two lakes, Lake Apopka and Lake Siena. Bella Collina sits on more than 1,900 acres of rolling hills providing a natural and serene setting for those wishing to take a step back from the hustle and the bustle of the city.

From its longest tees, Nick Faldo’s course design measures more than 7,500 yards. Using the Highlands rolling terrain as his inspiration, Faldo has created a traditional valley-style course for Bella Collina. Unique to Central Florida, the course features open fairways and sweeping dunes.

Located high in the hills of beautiful Montverde, our classic Nick Faldo Championship golf course is the perfect venue for your golf tournament. Uniquely challenging, and matching the contours of the land, golfers are required to use creativity as they navigate the course.

Orlando where dreams come true!
