For the first time, the Bonita Bay Group, located in Bonita Springs, Fla., is offering nonresident golf memberships that include play on nine golf courses at four clubs: Bonita Bay, Shadow Wood, Verandah and TwinEagles. The memberships include year-round reciprocal golf and dining privileges at all four clubs.
“This is an unprecedented opportunity for people who love golf,” Joey Garon, President of New Leaf Management, the amenity-management company of Bonita Bay Group, told the Fort Myers News-Press. “In most cases, joining a club means playing the same courses over and over. Now a single membership can include privileges for 108 holes of golf and several dining venues.”
Nonresident golf memberships are available beginning at $25,000.
Reciprocal play includes Bonita Bay Club East’s two Tom Fazio courses, The Cypress and The Sabal. Dining is offered at the Bonita Bay Club East clubhouse and Bonita Bay Marina’s waterside eatery, Backwater Jacks.
Shadow Wood Country Club has three distinct courses. The North and South courses at Shadow Wood in Bonita Springs were designed by Bob Cupp. The Preserve, designed by Arthur Hills, is five miles north at Shadow Wood Preserve. Dining options include the Shadow Wood Country Club and Rosie Spoonbill’s in The Brooks.
The Club at TwinEagles in Naples is the only private club in Florida with courses designed by Jack Nicklaus and Jack Nicklaus II (The Talon) and Gary Player (The Aerie). The 47,000-sq. ft. clubhouse offers casual and formal dining. TwinEagles is also the winter home of the Suttie Golf Academy with instructor Jim Suttie.
Verandah Club in Fort Myers has the Bob Cupp-designed Old Orange and the Jack Nicklaus and Jack Nicklaus II-designed Whispering Oak courses. Food and beverage options include the Jesse Fish lounge, Alligator Pear restaurant and the open-air River Terrace.
