Numbers are never a guarantee of full satisfaction. Not size, not quantity. It’s always a matter of quality. A golf resort may have at least a hundred courses in it but that does not come with a full guarantee of golfing paradise. Not if none of the ten courses are of championship caliber. Many other golf vacation destinations are bigger than the Bonaventure Country Club in Florida’s Fort Lauderdale county, but its two top courses are enough reasons to make this a magnanimous golf paradise. The East Course of the Bonaventure Country Club alone is extravagant, and it’s not just on size.
With a whooping size of 7,158 yards from the longest tees, with a par of 72, the Joe Lee design is huge – a good thousand yards bigger than its sibling West. The East Course of the Bonaventure Country Club is hailed as among Florida’s top ten courses with its signature combination of challenging golf, verdant tropical foliage, and its breathtaking scenery. The holes of the East course wind through mature palms, hardwoods, numerous water hazards, and some expansive bunkers that combine to make the course as beautiful as it is difficult. Its signature attraction is the third hole waterfall that gave this golf vacation haven the monicker, “The Cascades” Course.
The East Course of the Bonaventure Country Club is a traditional Florida layout that makes the most out of the Sunshine State’s tropical goodness. Together with the West course, they make the ideal Florida golf trip. And if golfers were to give this getaway a score, the numbers would never be less than stellar – and that’s a guarantee.
