The Bonita Bay Club’s golf operation is legendary. Ten of the Club’s 25 PGA Professionals and seven Fitness Professionals are Titleist Performance Institute Certified. An instructional program includes private and group lessons, golf schools, and clinics on three dedicated practice areas. Three on-property Bonita Bay West courses were designed by Arthur Hills achieved Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary status in 1995. Two Tom Fazio designed courses at the nearby Bonita Bay Club Naples was the first private 36-hole club in the world to achieve certification through the Audubon International’s Signature Program and has been designated as a Certified Signature Sanctuary since 1998.
Bonita Bay’s residents-only beach park is on Little Hickory Island just 10 to 15 minutes from the community. Residents and guests enjoy swimming, sunning, shelling, bird watching, and surf-fishing while surrounded by the white sands and clear waters of the Gulf. Picnic pavilions, grills, beach chair and umbrella service, showers, and restrooms equipped with infant changing stations are provided for residents in a setting landscaped with native beachfront vegetation. Personal chairs, umbrellas, and other beach items are welcomed. Residents also enjoy Bonita Bay’s twelve-mile network of on-property biking and hiking paths and a kayaking and canoeing lodge.
The Bonita Bay Marina is located on the Imperial River at the south end of Estero Bay, just minutes from the Gulf. Wet slips and dry boat storage are available, as well as on-site fueling and light mechanical services. Owned by the residents of Bonita Bay, the Marina accommodates a variety of watercraft with a maximum draft of thirty-six inches. The wet slip lifts can hold vessels up to 16,000 pounds and the dry storage can fit boats up to 32-feet long. Charts, bait, tackle, and other items are available at the Ships Store.
Bonita Bay Club’s new Tennis and Aquatic Center is expected to open early in 2018. The new Center will continue the expansion of the Bonita Bay Club’s tennis facilities. A re-arrangement and slight expansion of the 18-court tennis complex completed in December 2015 included the addition of a Championship Court and two tournament oversized courts. The Club is building a new 8,000-square foot Sports Center positioned between the tennis complex and the aquatic area that will include a tennis pro shop with racquet services, a tennis retail shop, a relaxing lobby and men’s and ladies’ locker rooms. A covered patio will overlook and run the entire length of the new Championship Court. A kitchen will offer casual fare, and a casual open-air bar under roof will be available for beverages. Outdoor dining options and a breezeway will be located on both the tennis side and the pool side of the building. A multi-purpose room will be available for meetings, event food stations, private dining, and tournament preparation.
The Club has completed a redesign of the kitchen and dining areas in the clubhouse. The redesign incorporated a 40-feet long buffet station in the dining space. The unique shape of the buffet station contributes to a more efficient diner flow and service fulfillment. The former golf pro shop was transformed into the 55th Hole, a 3,500 square feet high-end casual bar experience. The design capitalizes on both the interior space and the surrounding areas to create a captivating indoor/outdoor venue. Nano doors open to covered and open outdoor spaces and a patio that hosts the largest fire pit in the State of Florida. Backwater Jack’s, a waterfront dining and lounge experience at the Bonita Bay Marina, is a favored gathering place for boating enthusiasts. Bonita Bay’s Naples Club facility on Immokalee Road includes a Club Room within the clubhouse that offers additional dining options.
In addition to the amenities available within Bonita Bay, the Seaglass tower’s second floor will connect to an award-winning amenity complex. Amenities already in place include a theater, guest suites, card and club rooms, a fully-equipped fitness facility that features men’s and women’s spas with steam and massage rooms, a large resort-style walk-in pool and spa, and a deck with a covered cabana that includes a bar and grill.
