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.

Poorly Maintained

Great layout for a course, very pretty. But sadly isn’t taken care of at all. Along with the poorly managed tee times causing the pace of play to be extremely slow. Sad that such a pretty course could be run so bad.

You get what you pay for

The course is in poor shape with uncut rough areas and areas on the greens that are not good grassy areas.

Cow pasture

It’s sad to see this course in such bad shape. The layout is great and you can tell it was once a great course. It’s not taken care of at all.

Women Golf Unfriendly

The holes are too long for any female golfer. Even a pro couldn’t get on the green in 2. The course is in need of TLC.

Run down golf course

The layout seemed cool and the holes are challenging but it seems like they have given up on the course. Putting through weed spots on the greens and fairways are brown. Pretty horrible conditions to play in. Pro is that it is wide open and always available but no way should they be charging $50 for this course.

Good layout and price

Lots of water. The condition of the course was ok. Virtually no rough to speak of, which made it friendly. It wasn't busy and I was done in 3 1/2 hours. The staff was very nice. I would play the course again because of the great rate I got.

Save your money, do not play Bonaventure.

The course was nice last time I played ten years ago. Now it is a weed covered pasture. The layout is good, but the condition is horrible. Most of the fairways are hardpan and weeds. Very, very disappointing. Save your money and find another place to play.

Cow pasture.

Played this course a few times over the years. Was never the best course but was always in decent shape. Not anymore. Half of the T boxes were filled with sand and you couldn’t even find a piece of grass to tee off. The greens had dead patches, sand patches and weeds. Fairways were average at best.

Don’t Bother

The course was in terrible condition, the tee boxes, fairways and greens were all choppy and brow. There was literally no grass. A terrible disappointment!!!
