Just a couple of additional notes, Lost and Found at the Bella Rakha Kiosk / Clubhouse also when walking between holes at NI champs especially Bella Rakha, there are several holes where you need to walk by or across another hole to get to your next Tee, please take a route that respects players on the hole you are crossing and be mindful of making to much noise. We would also ask that on Saturday and Sunday you avoid driving up and down the driveway as several holes play along it. Park on the main rd don’t forget the Tee time rounds start at hole 10 at Bella and hole 1 at POTR.
