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. To enhance Bella Collina’s Florida Country Club community, luxury homes are being built directly around the Golf course, The Club, and lake Sienna.
From its longest tees, Nick Faldo’s luxury Golf 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. The design takes advantage of the long sweeps of the hillside and forest where parts of two holes are now located.
At the heart of this is an extraordinary 75,000-plus-square-foot Tuscan-inspired clubhouse. The Grand Bella Collina Clubhouse, designed by Mike Marsh, the acclaimed clubhouse designer of renowned clubs such as The Bridges, Cherry Hills Country Club and Pronghorn, is a testament to the Club’s dedication to quality and reflective of the Bella Collina lifestyle. Handcrafted appointments and authentic Tuscan design are found in the detailing, creating a beautiful and luxurious place for members to come together and create traditions.
The clubhouse facility encompasses six buildings which include Dining, Spa, The 19th hole, Pro-Shop and Men’s & Women’s locker room. As one of the most successful golfers of his generation, we called upon Nick Faldo to design our new luxury golf course as the cornerstone of the Bella Collina golf community. Employing strategy and matching contours of the land with the shot at hand are all inherent in his design. Golfers are required to study the lie, feel the wind, read the ground, and utilize creativity as they navigate the course.
