There Isn’t a Golf Course Within a Stone’s Throw
Much like the huge joke we play on tourists and visitors regarding the US 41, Tamiami Trial, Cleveland Avenue, Ninth Street North multi-named street we have an area called Bonita Springs Golf and Country Club. There is no golf and no country club. There was but the greed of the housing boom inspired the owner to close the golf and develop the fairways into a condo strip. They tried to develop every inch of Bonita Springs real estate until someone flipped the switch September 2005.
None of that actually panned out, by the way. The fairways are like a cattle pature at this point. Hopefully, the family of the owner, who has since passed on will revamp the course or sell it to someone who will start it back up. Bonita Springs really misses it’s golf course.
My parents actually live just off of the course and miss it terribly, too. The couple that own my listing on Wild Turkey miss that course, the view of that course and the lake with the bottom lined with white golf balls.
If I remember correctly this mailbox is off of Enoch or Patrick Street in Bonita Golf & Country Club. It’s one of the quietest spots in Bonita Springs.
