Type Resort
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

Very nice course

Great price from Hot Deals, at 10am t time. Course was in good condition, can’t complain. If I were to knit-pick, some sand traps could use some fine tuning, a few greens had some burned spots. Good thing is I stayed out of traps and the pin placements were good so never worried about rough spots on outer portion of greens. Greens rolled nice, not too fast, not too slow.

Still needs work

Greens still need some work, Are rough, lot of bad spots, weeds etc. rest of course, fairways, tee boxes are fine. Enjoy the layout, especially 3rd hole par 3 over a waterfall and lake. Long course, even from blue tees. Wish they could get greens in a little better shape, still great value for money.

Bang for the buck

This is a great course for the money. Not many others on the course and we were able to get out early. I would play it again.

Excellent Layout

The layout of the course is nice. Went on a Friday and we had no issues with the pace of play. Greens we're good and rolled nice with the exception of about three that had isolated brown patches. Bunkers were kept nice as well. Would definitely play again and be prepared to lose a few balls in the water.

Bonaventure

For the off season price of $27.00 a real bargain. The course needs work. I played this track 30 years ago and it was in my mind a premium course. Not so much now. Seems that there are some new (recent) owners and working on improvements slowly. People very nice. Bad news a hotdog is $10.00 ! But it did come with fries! Pro shop weak. High handy cap players may want to bring a lot of golf balls. A lot of water.
