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.

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.

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.

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.

Came to this course in 2015. It was in much better shape then. I loved hole 3, a par 3 over a water fall and was looking forward to playing here again on our next trip to this area. My Father and I were very disappointed in the condition of the course this time. Greens had just been aerated a few days before we played but were still in horrible shape. I remember the fairways were like carpet but not even close this time. Landscaping around Club House and Resort were in very poor condition as well. The only good thing I can say this time around was that the staff was friendly.

Great course to play with friends but a bit to much water so if your not a skilled golfer you will lose a good amount of balls. The course layout is nice butfor the price of the course id expect the greens and fair ways to be better maintained. Patches and weeds grown on the greens and they are exceptionally fast. The 3rd hole water fall is a breath taking view; and overall its a great course but gets 3 stars.

Without the GolfNow rate, it would've been $50 to play here at 2 in the afternoon. Course is pretty torn up, driving range looks terrible and they seem to just let players go where ever they want. On #10 we had 5 carts come up behind us. Groups would cut in front of us. Quit after 16, between waiting on almost every shot and course conditions were not worth it.

This used to be such a beautiful wonderful course. There were no people doing maintenance on the course the entire day. No beverage cart. I've been there a few times recently when the snack bar wasn't even open. Worst greens I've ever seen. Mountain courses in Colorado have better greens in April than those guys do. They've just totally let it go. For $15 it would be a good deal. But even at that rate, a five and a half hour round is not worth any price.

years ago there was a course in Miami called Fountainbleu it was considered like playing in a cow pasture.. today i was reminded of that course by Bonaventure which is in the worst condition I have seen and I have played there at least once or twice a year for the last 20 years... there was fallen trees and branches that had fallen in the last hurricane (Sept. 2016) that were still on the sides of the fairways.. the tee boxes were uneven and worn.. there was crab grass everywhere, and the greens were bumpy, and had crab grass in spots also.. I wouldn't play here again if you paid me $50... it was a terrible waste of time as you couldn't putt on the greens, it was hit or miss.. I have lived in S. Fl. since 1962 and have played almost all the courses, including some private, Turnberry, Westin hIlls and Grand Oaks, I still consider Jacaranda the platinum standard.. way better than almost all the others. I will never ever play Bonaventure again and I wouldn't be surprised if it is plowed under for more apartments and houses and it sure looks like it is being neglected which is one step away from that happening... again stay away save your money.. if I could have given it minus 4 stars I would have...
