Bonita Bay Club East - Naples Florida
Bonita Bay Club West, within the Bonita Bay community, has three courses designed by Arthur Hills to preserve and enhance the natural features of the land. The two Tom Fazio courses at nearby Bonita Bay East, on Immokalee Road, provide a pure golf experience on 1,000-plus-acres that include preserved cypress wetlands but no residential development.
The Bonita Bay Club West courses achieved Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary status in 1995:
The Marsh weaves its way through wetland terrain with beautiful oaks and palmettos forming a backdrop for challenging golf. Natural wetlands and native vegetation provide both landscaping and water hazards.
Creekside features broad fairways and limited carries, while changes in land elevations create a subtle feeling of rolling hills. Bunkering and moguls add challenge to the greens.
Bay Island draws from the natural lay of the land to create the longest and most challenging of Bonita Bay Club West's three courses. Water hazards, sand traps and thick stands of oak and cypress await errant shots on a course that plays to all four points of the compass.
Golf Digest named Bonita Bay Club East the 1999 Environmental Leader in Golf, noting that the club set standards for land planning and environmental preservation continuing efforts to show how golf course development can coexist with and enhance the environment. Also in 1999, Bonita Bay Club East was designated as the world's first private 36-hole Audubon International Signature Sanctuary.
The Cypress, the longest of Bonita Bay Club's five championship courses, presents a classic test of golfing skill. The front nine offers spacious fairways and natural bunkering, and the back nine provides memorable closing stretches.
The Sabal, named for the hundreds of native sabal palms on its site, calls for a different style of golf and a different use of drivers than The Cypress. Undulating fairways and distinctive bunkering and greens make this a challenging course for players of all levels.
The courses are complemented by two well-equipped pro shops, three driving ranges, comfortable locker rooms and a staff of golf professionals who will improve your golf, challenge your skills and increase your appreciation for the game.
