About

Length 6128
Slope 127
Rating 70.1
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

Awesome staff here!!!

The people who work here make this a super place to play!! From the proshop to the starters to the marshalls!! All great people!! We played this course four times in the last two weeks and it was one of our favourites!! The layout is great and it is quite challenging. Lots of bunkers and water. The conditions are above average. Could use a bit more work but competes with all other courses we played. Great pace of play. Great deals on golfnow. Look forward to coming again next year!!

Lots of work needs to been done to this golf course

Tee boxes - need work

Fairways- ok , no yard markers

Greens - needs work , lots of fungus eating the greens in some greens

Bunkers - needs work, around the bunker and needs more sand

Signature hole -looks horrible no water fall

Overall - this course is in need of landscaping ...bunkers need to be address ,cut around edge of bunkers to give it definition, turn on the waterfall, manicure the trees and leave around the holes and plant some nice looking plants, pick up dry tree branches that fall , insert yardage markers , even out the tee boxes, fix the greens

Nice surprise

Was hesitant to play as a result of reviews but was pleasantly surprised. Good variety of tee distances. Could use better distance markers. Great layout and challenging for all levels of play. Tee boxes a bit chewed up but greens were good. $30 of hot deal golf now. Cant beat it, but that being said dont expect a $100 course!! Played with a great couple from Pittsburgh!

Sad that this once very fine course has been neglected

Greens, fairways, tee boxes miserably maintained.

Signature Par 3 waterfall hole did not have the advertised waterfall. no resources to replace the pump I guess.

Will

Over booked. We booked 9:22 and course was open. They let everyone go and it was so stacked up 3 groups on each hole. Three and a half hours to play 11 holes before we called it quits. Just disappointed with the lack of organization. Tee boxes were uneven and ripped up. Signature hole, par 3 with the waterfall was not working. Will not be back.
