This photo was actually taken on Wild Turkey Avenue in BG & CC. The Bonita Springs 5Golf and Country Club area is a really nice, quiet area of Bonita Springs. It’s been a mildly deed restricted fixture in the area for decades. it wasn’t until a few short years ago that the owner of the golf course decided it would make a better housing development than a golf course. The course was closed, the permitting and engineering completed, for the most part and then … the market turned. The monument sign on Old 41 Road remains:
The golf course is little more than a cow pasture at this point and the clubhouse remains closed. It is, however, for sale for the tidy sum of $9M. I almost want to put my pinky to the corner of my mouth like Dr. Evil when I say that. Don’t know why…
At any rate, homes in the Bonita Springs Golf & Country Club area start just under $200,000 and go upward from there. There are a variety of housing styles and ages of homes and condos.
Near the Bonita Springs Golf and Country Club there are a variety of communities such as, Fairwinds, Sir Michael’s Place which is now renamed Chadwick Square, Bonita Golf Villas, Cypress Plantations, Southlands, Paradise Woods, The Greens at Bonita Springs, San Carlos Estates, Cockleshell Village, Fairway Estates, Bermuda Park, Villages of Bonita, Eagle Point, The Pines at Bonita Springs, Fairway Dunes and Lakeside Hideaway.
You’ll notice that a good deal of the communities reference something to do with golf. It has been a little confusing for buyers who think that they’ll be near or on a course due to the inference of golf in the title.
The nearest golf course is an executive course on West Terry Street. Bonita Fairways, another Bonita Springs Community. A few miles away on Corkscrew Road there is an 18 hole public golf course at Stoneybrook of Estero, Florida.
It’s ok if you don’t golf. I am president of the “can’t golf to save my life club” and I hereby approve your guilt free-alternate activities besides golf. Go forth and swim or play tennis or pinochle.
