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

Temps de jeu interminable

Nous avions deux quatuors qui semblaient penser que le terrain leur appartenait! Deux trous complètement vide devant eux et personne sur le terrain pour les aviser. 4.30 hres de jeu et nous avons dû cesser à cause de la noirceur sans terminer notre ronde!!!

Great time at Bonaventure

I played The front nine Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. The weather in south Florida is fantastic along with this golf course.

The approach’s are well maintained and greens are fast. I didn’t see the Alligator at hole # 2 but know he’s out there somewhere.

Challenging Course

Every hole is different, very nice layout. Great amount of water with 6 of last 8 having water as well as the front. Great par 3 over the waterfall! We had a windy day, and it was a challenge. We will be back!

Getting better

Bonaventure team are doing a good job in bringing back the condition well. The majority of the greens are good as are the fairways. The staff are generally friendly. The tee boxes still need work but overall is is much better than a year ago,

Much Improved

This course is 100% better than last year. Many of the greens were terrible last year, but only about 3 greens had small repairable spots. It would help if ALL sand traps had at least one rake & preferably 2. The biggest fault is the slow pace of some groups who are too selfish to allow you to play through. The course Marshals are rarely seen and do little if anything to speed up play ie. force slow groups to allow others to play through.
