Bonaventure Country Cub
The 18 holes of the semi-private Bonaventure Country Club follow along the edge of the Everglades, a human challenge laid out in the middle of an untamed wonderland of mangroves, palms, and wildlife. Golfers traverse TifEagle Bermuda greens dotted with scenic challenges, including freshwater lakes and a par 3 hole situated next to an actual waterfall. On a given outing, they might run into director of golf and PGA-certified instructor Bob Mallek, who helps students improve their game through a combination of analysis and intuition. In addition to his duties at the course, Mallek is also active in the regional golf scene, serving as president of the southern chapter of the South Florida PGA.
In addition to a tranquil-yet-challenging course and expert instruction, Bonaventure Country Club also sports amenities for golfers and civilians alike. The club's recent renovations gave complete makeovers to the driving range and clubhouse, which frequently hosts events from weddings and quinceaneras to reunions to retreats. Visitors can also extend their stays at the adjacent Bonaventure Resort & Spa, which boasts 500 rooms and a four-diamond rating from AAA.
