Golfers of any skill level can appreciate having one membership that lets them play five Southwest Florida golf courses designed by top architects. These courses are world-class and kept in great condition, satisfying seasoned golfers and beginners alike.
Bonita Bay Club members enjoy three Arthur Hills-designed courses within the 2,400-acre Bonita Bay community and two Tom Fazio courses spanning more than 1,000 acres of preserved cypress wetlands and pine flats nearby in Naples.
Many memberships at Southwest Florida golf courses don’t offer a variety of courses to choose from, especially ones that are fun for people new to the game as well as skilled golfers looking for a challenge.
The Arthur Hills-designed courses offer not only immaculate courses but also amazing landscaping. Golfers can enjoy the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary setting while playing Marsh, Creekside and Bay Island courses.
Marsh weaves its way through natural wetlands and majestic oaks and palmettos. Creekside features broad fairways and defined carries with elevation changes for a subtle feeling of rolling hills. The greens are surrounded by bunkers and moguls. Bay Island draws from the rugged, natural lay of the land as the longest and most formidable of the three west courses. It features water hazards, sand traps, and thick stands of oak and cypress.
At Bonita Bay’s Naples Club off Immokalee Road, are the Cypress and Sabal courses, designed by Tom Fazio. Cypress opens with wide fairways punctuated by strategically placed bunkers. The back nine becomes tighter, with holes often cutting through dense stands of trees. Steep-faced bunkers, plenty of wetlands and water, and slick-running greens are signature features.
Sabal borders a wildlife preserve and is a little shorter and tighter than its sibling course. Long white sand bunkers flank undulating fairways. Ponds intimidate, especially on holes nine through 12, which curl around a 35-acre lake. Multi-tiered greens with false fronts and terraces require focus until the ball is holed.
