Type Resort
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.

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.

Good course. Slower than usual

We usually play a round in 4 hours. Today was almost 5 hours and the ranger couldn't seem to get that group moving.

Way way over promise and under deliver

I should have known from the 3 1/2 stars they had. After reading some reviews and the information listed about the course I thought I’d give it a shot. It was cheap and now I know why. The course info says over 3 million dollars in improvements....where? Maybe the hole layout plaques. I get out of my car and remember it saying “New carts with GPS”....definitely not New carts and definitely no GPS on the carts. I asked the “bag guy” and he had no idea what I was talking about. I go inside to pay and ask the guy at the counter and he says “yeah if you plug your phone into the cart....” ARE you serious? So the course respond is bring your own GPS and plug it in huh? Talk about misrepresentation and misleading. So when I got to hole 1 to tee off which is adjacent to the driving range. I tee’d off and where there is supposed to be a net protecting you from errand shots from the range is a net all mangled and not doing anything. As I’m looking for my ball in the rough I just about get smoked from a ball from the range. Net not doing no good all hung up. The course info said the “famous Hole 3 with a waterfall” got to that hole and the waterfall isn’t falling. No water. There were mowers out basically making the course worse....we just had over 3 inches of rain and the mowers where slipping the grass everywhere. Overall probably one of the worst experiences I’ve had on a course in Florida and I’ve had soe pretty bad ones.

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.
