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.

First and last time I play here

greens are atrocious. Most of them are over 50% burnt and full of sand. You literally have to player shot on the unburnt part of the green to avoid all the holes and sand dunes that plague the greens. Me and my buddies all paid about 55 bucks to play here and we all feel like we were robbed. Listen to the other reviews and avoid this place unless you enjoy using your sand wedge on the green.

Poor condition

This course could be a really nice course to play. They let this course go and have not done any maintenance to it... the greens are horrible and the fairways are all dead.... the rough areas are green the fairways are all dead.... this course has possibly to be a really good couse but now I wouldn't go back.

It seams like it is regularly overbooked because there is a 30 minute wait to start no matter what the tee time is
Greens need work

Keep your expectations low

Course has a nice lay-out.. They are working to improve the course. Water on almost every hole. With some work this could be a great course. There was no starter, no one unloading back and the Ranger was watching over us like a hawk. The course played well but check back in 2024 and I think there will be a huge improvement.

Good course gone bad

There was no one to take bags at bag drop. Had to load our own bags. There was no one after round to take bags. Greens were poor, fairways fair, featured hole on three no water fall. This could be a great course. It is just not well taken care of.
