Exclusive Bonita Bay East Now Available for Daily-Fee Play

Bonita Bay East's Cypress CourseNAPLES – Bonita Bay East, the 1,400-acre pure golf facility in North Naples known for it’s exceptional environmental setting and two award-winning Tom Fazio-designed championship courses, is now open for daily-fee play.

The non-residential golf facility has been one of the region’s most sought-after golf experiences since it opened as a private club in 1997.

“Bonita Bay East’s large-scale acreage and variety of vegetation gave us unlimited opportunity to mold, shape and form one of the finest golf complexes in the United States,” said Fazio, who described the pure golf setting as reminiscent of Florida as it appeared a century ago.

Fazio is the pre-eminent golf course designer of the 20th century with more credits on Golf Digest’s list of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses and Golfweek’s collection of America’s Best than any other living designer.

“The outstanding site allowed us to create a different playing experience and views on every hole while maintaining and, in many cases, enhancing the environmental integrity of the property," Fazio added.

The two courses wind through open areas, marsh and woodland and past cypress stands where players often see wild turkey, marsh birds, rabbits and white tailed deer. It was the first 36-hole facility in the world to achieve Audubon International Signature Sanctuary status. Bonita Bay East’s site includes 895 acres of cypress wetlands, 190 acres of pine flats, lakes and hundreds of native sabal palms.

“The Sabal and Cypress courses are a departure from more contemporary configurations, with elevation changes, and uphill and downhill play,” Fazio explained. “Five tee areas allow golfers to choose markers appropriate to their game and knolls, ridges, undulations and lakes create a game of strategy for all players.”

Golf enthusiasts are invited to play the courses, dine in the facility’s 8,000-square-foot clubhouse overlooking the two finishing holes and take advantage of the state-of-the-art practice facility.

Bonita Bay received the 1999 Golf Digest Environmental Leader in Golf Award from Golf Digest and the National Environmental Steward Award from the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America and was included among Travel + Leisure Golf’s top 100 golf communities in America each year since 2006, Links magazine’s 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09 lists of America’s Premier Properties and Golf Connoisseur’s 2007 list of the top 40 golf communities in America.

Bonita Bay East is located on Immokalee Road six miles east of I-75. For additional information or to schedule a tee time, call 239-353-5100 or visit www.BonitaBayEast.com.
