About

Holes 18
Type Resort
Par 70
Length 6128 yards
Slope 127
Rating 70.1

Editor's Note: Course closed for business in 2013. Check Bonaventure Golf Club listing for the remaining opened 18 holes.

Bonaventure West is also known as the Resort Course. This 6189-yard course has less water than the East Course and one extra par 3 on each nine. This is a Charles Mahannah layout, showing this renowned golf course architect at his best.

It has wide fairways and undulating greens. The golf course has lots of tropical vegetation and inhabited by wild parrots, blue herons, snowy egrets, and many other forms of wildlife. Fairways are generous, but hole design makes low scoring a challenge.
The course is perfectly suited for golfers of all skill levels

Uncut rough. Poor greens

This course used to be okay, but it is currently terrible. Much of the rough was not cut and too long. It was easy to loose balls just off the fairways.

The greens were the worst I have ever played on

I have never given a bad review before, but I was very disappointed with Bonaventure this visit.

Poor conditions, low maintenance.

Greens were in "repair" therefore were so bad.
Roughs were extremely high, it was impossible to hit the ball there.
Most of the fairways were full water, Where the ball fell, it was buried underground. Not running nothing.

I recommend that in cases like yesterday close the course to avoid bad game for players and this kind of reviews.

Bad condition overall

The grass on the tee boxes hasn’t been cut, fairways are the same grass as the rough. Greens are in bad condition with patch up work. Not worth the money and no wonder there is no one playing. Only went there since many other courses were closed due to the heavy rain over the last few days.

Course out of shape

Me and 1 others played course. Pace of play was great due to very minimal golfers. The fairways we're and greens were in horrible shape and under repair. Due to this I feel the cost should have been cheeper.

Stay away

Worst course ever. They warned me there was some sod missing on greens but the greens were rolled with buldozer tracks, 3/4 of green actually missing and any ball in any rough is not findable

Course is not currently playable

This course has a good layout, but for the last several years has not been in good shape. Maintenance has been poor and the course has gone down hill. The greens have been terrible and the fairways overgrown with weeds. Recently, the course was purchased by a new owner who is currently trying to bring it back (I hope). The work underway including maintenance on the greens renders it unplayable. They should shut the course down for a couple of months and really repair it. Once finished, it should be a winner.

Greens in Despair

All is good until you get to the greens which are in very bad condition. We had no choice but to follow the "two puts max" option.

Greens were embarrassing

How they can look themselves in the eyes while charging $50 when the course is playing in that miserable conditions is beyond my understanding. Hugely disappointing and at no time were we informed of the conditions of the course either by GOLFNOW or by the staff on course. I want my money back.

Greens were Garbage

All the greens were garbage. More sand & weeds than grass. We were told the greens were being aerated AFTER we checked in. It did not look like the greens were maintained in MONTHS.

Horrendous Greens

Could be a very nice course. Greens are horrendous. If they put some money into the greens it would make all the difference.
