Bonaventure Golf Club (formerly known as Bonaventure Country Club) is a classic Florida layout with holes routed through strands of mature palms and hardwoods, and around numerous water hazards and expansive bunkers. This course, designed by Joe Lee, is also called the Green Monster. Some people call it the Cascade Course because of the waterfall on the picturesque 160-yard, par-3 third. This signature hole has a waterfall that stretches across the front of the green.

Poor condition.

What you can expect when no one is putting any money or concern into upkeep. The question is what will happen when new owners take over.

Complete Trash

Save your money. This place is robbery. Spreading green sand on the green over bare patches is not a reasonable way to fix your greens. It is borderline unplayable. Fairways are dead and brown also but I cannot overstate how poor the condition of the greens are. It is tragic what has happened to this place.

Grounds crew ruins this course

Played here for the first time in years and I was suppressed. Course was “decent” for $40, but probably won’t play here again. Grounds crew didn’t care about pace of play or golfer in play. We had a grounds crew guy chop a palm tree down right off the cart path during our approach shots and we assumed he was going to turn the chainsaw off we we pulled up.....but no kept sawing through while we were trying to hit our fairway shots.

Poor grounds crew

Ground crew didn’t care about golfers in play, there was a guy cutting a tree down while we were playing the hole. We assumed he would turn the chainsaw off when we approached our tee shots, but boy were we wrong. Had to play our ruff and fairway shots while this guy chopped a tree, not caring at all about the golfers playing. Never have seen anything like this before.

Worst course on the planet

Pics Golfnow advertise and description is 200%false. No GPS carts and condos are fully built on one of the old courses. Greens are basically weeds and huge dead spots, forget putting. Water everywhere which they apparently don’t use but to feed the weeds on the greens. No food anywhere and no beverage cart. Tee boxes are sand and the sand traps haven’t been raked in months, some had grass everywhere. Saw 1 person dealing with the carts and 1 person working the closed pro shop that’s it. $40 to play this course is robbery. It wouldn’t let me rate it a zero or I would have. Save your money and putt in your back yard it would be better trust me. Worst I’ve ever played in 30 years and I’ve played some goat lots. Can’t believe they rob people like this just close the place.

Tragic

Tragic as you read the reviews of other golfers I’m wondering where are you fellas are playing if you think that this course isn’t that bad when there are holes and patches of green missing that are 3 x 4‘ wide you got to be nuts how dare this course charge people to play this golf course they should be paying people to play the course spend some money or close the golf course OK there are so many other better golf courses that you can play and if you think that this place is one of them you guys are sadly mistaken they have just given up and this is the worst review I’ve ever given any golf course conditions of the golf course are terrible the greens are missing grass Patches of grass 3’ 4’ patches of grass nonexistent missing off the green the place the tea boxes are sand what a joke the greens keepers crew and Supt have given up The course looks like it had character years ago wonderful layout just needs a tender and deep pocket that can spend the money and Bring this course back to where it used to be or where it doesn’t belong there are hints of a hidden gem fix the course spend some money get some fire and a little pride and perhaps the golf course will reap the benefits and become the gem that it could be Best of luck with that

If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything

If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything such a shame that a course that has wonderful character as this place does with water and a lot of its holes has let the golf course go to garbage greens are garbage tea boxes are terrible it’s just a mess big pieces of grass missing from the greens how dare you charge people to play golf there it’s disgusting I’ve never play there again it’s absolutely the worst place I’ve ever played golf such a shame that the Owner of the golf course & superintendent of the golf course has lost interest I guess you guys should go take care of a cemetery because you killed I am told I want beautiful golf course you could tell the character is still there trying to believe through but you need somebody to take care of the grass in the greens and not just neglect them such a shame

Lots of water

Very challenging course due to water on almost every hole. Greens could use some upkeep but for the price I would play again
