Bonaventure Country Club now features brand new greens!
Bonaventure Country Club, located within the City of Weston, FL is a semi-private golf facility open to all golfers. It features (2) Championship 18-Hole golf courses unencumbered by residential communities. Like many other local golf courses Bonaventure Country Club suffered from a couple of lackluster years and in May 2012 the owner filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy following a July foreclosure action by one of its lenders and a plan in August to sell half of its golf course.
According to Craig Pugatch, their attorney, the full intention was to restructure their arrangements with creditors and maximize the value of the property for future sale,”We believe that the value of the property will ultimately result in substantial, if not full, payment to creditors.”
The East course was closed on September 15th and construction began on October 1st. Greenway Golf out of Stevinson, California was contracted to renovate the East course and to then manage the proper maintenance of the golf course. According to Randy Weber, PGA (Director of Golf) Our expectations were exceeded by the professionalism and expertise that Greenway Golf provides and we are very excited about our future! I had a chance to tour some of the holes and I must admit I’m exited about the turn out of the golf course. The new undulating greens are still young but the golf course is now playable. I expect within the next few weeks the golf course will be in excellent shape. The course renovations included
Course renovations included:
- New “Tiff Eagle” Bermuda greens
- New bunkers
- Proper drainage around green complexes
- Manicured fairways*
- Coquina waste bunkers
- Proper & Progressive Course Maintenance Program
We toured Bonaventure Country Club today and we were very impressed with the changes. We noticed some of the green complexes, if not all of them, were changed/modified. We also noticed huge changes with the addition of some coquina waste bunkers, the addition of new sand in the all bunkers and beautiful manicured fairways. We spoke with several players attending the golf course and they were all in agreement that the beautiful layout needed a facelift. I don’t believe the greens are 100% ready as they are still maturing and rolling to a maybe 9 in the stimpmeter. But I see great potential for the upcoming summer months. My congratulations to Randy Weber and his staff for a great job.
