Florida's Bonita Bay East golf course offers Elite Player's Seasonal Program

Bonita Bay East, an exceptional environmental setting with two award-winning Tom Fazio-designed golf courses, unveils their seasonal golf program featuring competitive prices to match each player's playing schedule.

The Elite Player's Seasonal Program, offers unlimited golf from Oct. 1 through March 18, 2013, for $3,450 per person or $3,950 per couple.

"This is an extremely popular program offering a limited opportunity for the public to play during the fall and winter at Bonita Bay East," said Jay Severson, Bonita Bay East director of golf sales. "It will be the last year this package is offered."

A cart fee of only $25 per person, per round is applicable to each of the golf programs.

The unprecedented Elite Player's Program allows players use of the practice facility and range one hour prior to tee time, as well as access to the 8,000-square-foot clubhouse, dining room, mixed grille and bar the day of their scheduled tee time.

Located in North Naples, the 1,400-acre nonresidential golf facility has been one of the region's most sought-after golf experiences since it opened as a private club in 1997.

The two golf courses at Bonita Bay East -- the Cypress and the Sabal -- wind through open areas, marsh and woodland and past cypress stands where players often see wild turkey, marsh birds, rabbits and white tailed deer. It was the first 36-hole facility in the world to achieve Audubon International Signature Sanctuary status. Bonita Bay East's site includes 895 acres of cypress wetlands, 190 acres of pine flats, lakes and hundreds of native sabal palms.

Bonita Bay received the 1999 Golf Digest Environmental Leader in Golf Award from Golf Digest and the National Environmental Steward Award from the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America and was included among Travel + Leisure Golf's top 100 golf communities in America each year since 2006, Links magazine's 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2008-09 lists of America's Premier Properties and Golf Connoisseur's 2007 list of the top 40 golf communities in America.

Bonita Bay East is located on Immokalee Road six miles east of I-75.
