If you’re interested in a round of golf somewhere exciting and challenging, it’s time to head to the Gordon Lewis designed golf course at Bonita Fairways near Naples. This executive golf course is semi-private but currently open to the public. You’ll find it located on West Terry Street in Bonita Springs, just minutes from Southwest Florida International Airport.
Opened in 1993, the Bonita Fairways Golf Course is a 3,400-yard, par-61 course with seven par-4 and 11 par-3 holes. You need to allow at least 3½ hours to complete the full round. The course is sure to challenge your game, whether you are a relative novice or an experienced golfer. Like many golf courses in southwest Florida, it is set amidst unspoiled greenery in a pristine nature preserve with plenty of hills and dips, doglegs, sand traps, and lakes to keep you on your toes.
