We have enjoyed the overall experience at Bonaventure but I have to say, the greens during our play March 19, 2017 were as good as most private courses. Pleasant surprise. Got a great deal from Golf Now and had a great time.

It is a good cores with some really tough holes. It was a windy day but it would be challenging even if it was not windy. Pace of play was slow due to extra shots needed by most.

Fun course to play, lots of water but it's easily avoidable. Course was in good condition, we found the greens somewhat inconsistent speed wise. A beginner twosome somehow got to the tenth tee between us and the group we were following and really slowed the pace down, then tried to wave us through on the 17th green after there were three groups waiting, too late!!

This course is full of water hazards. If you play smart, you can avoid them. Course condition was very good. I would certainly play this course again. The only downside is the pace of play due to the many water hazards.

Really nice and challenging course and conditions were pretty good. Pace of play and golf operations were terrible. They had no carts for the afternoon t-times; waited over 20 minutes. Operations staff took care of their regulars over other customers.

Would not go back if these situations exist.

Conditions can get windy out in Florida there 20-25 mph. If I could explain Florida golf courses in one word it would be unforgiving. Dry thick crab grass is very tricky to play out of. Played the front 9 in 1.5 hours as a single with nobody in front of me and taking my time. The back 9 well that was a different story. When I got to the 10th tee I had a 2some in the fairway which were playing fast and a 4some of baby boomers who were Recreating a episode of the walking dead on the green. Proceeded to wait on every tee box for 10+ minutes. I'm sorry but if you can't follow simple golf etiquette why even have golf etiquette at all if people can't follow it. NO MORE THAN 15 MINUTES PER HOLE. Go to a private course if you want to crawl around the course. Take 5 minutes to let people play threw. Don't waste people's time use common sense when there is very few golfers on the course. Be a friend + pace of play

Very windy day. Our twosome was paired up with another twosome. We flew threw the front nine in less than two hours, however not as fortunate on the back. Course condition was ok, enjoyed playing it. Price was very reasonable. Greens were fast and true.

Pace of play was the slowest ever due to overbooking. Course was in decent condition, greens were soft due to heavy rain 2 days prior. Bunkers were in good shape . You need to be +220 yds off the tee to make this course enjoyable, course recommends that over 65 play from the gold tees . There is lots of water so come prepared

Overall the course was average condition. This is because South Florida is still on water restrictions (water only 3 tims a week). This causes a lot of problems for Superintendents. Greens were a little slow.

This course is very challenging with water on all but 3 or 4 of the holes. Condition was very good compared to similar courses in the area. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Cost is very reasonable as well.

Lots of water on this course and the par 4's are longish, but have fairly generous fairways. You need a good driving day to score. In addition, the greens are pretty contoured so putting is challenging. Course maintenance is just average but overall the rate is a decent value. I was allowed to have my wife ride along at no charge which is often not-the-case in Florida. Staff are very friendly and the bar / clubhouse is very nice.
