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.
Sabal is just a little shorter and tighter than its sibling, the course borders a wildlife preserve. Long white sand bunkers flank undulating fairways and ponds cut in to provide challenge and interest, especially on holes 9 through 12 that play around a 35-acre lake. Named for its abundance of graceful sabal palms located throughout the landscape, the Sabal features steep bunkers, multi-tiered greens with false fronts and terraces and sloping bunkers.
Cypress is the longer of the two Naples courses; it leads off with wide fairways punctuated by strategically-placed bunkers on the front nine to tighter landing areas on the back with some holes cut through dense stands of trees. Generally, the Cypress is considered the course to play for those looking for the ultimate challenge. You'll find more steep-faced bunkers along with plenty of wetlands and water. Among the big challenges on the Cypress are the slick-running greens.
