The Bonita Bay Club is Growing Again

The Bonita Bay Golf Club in Bonita Springs is updating and improving itself once again. Recently the club spent $11.5 million on the golf course and the clubhouse, changing out the pro-shop for a new 4,700 SF open air bar and casual grill. Now, with nearly 2,000 social, sports, and golf members, the association purchased (for $4.25 Million) the 60,000 SF Bonita Bay Medical Centre, located just to the back of the Creekside's golf course and next to The Promenade. The three story building will give the club plenty of room for expanding its services to its members.
Plans for the space, which will be called the Bonita Bay Lifestyle Center, include a new 18,000 SF fitness center with spa and a new high-tech golf training studio. The lifestyle center will take up most of the vacant space at the building, which will continue to be home to the current medical offices tenants. After the renovation is complete, the club is hoping to be able to attract a few more health-related businesses including those focusing on wellness and health services, such as physical therapy, alternative medicine and nutrition.
The purchase of the building is part of a larger improvement project for the Bonita Bay Club. The project (estimated to cost about $12 million) will eventually replace the current fitness center with a new completely revamped tennis facility that will include stadium seating and an on-site bistro for dining.
Residents in Bonita Bay own their club facilities outright and just recently sold out all of their golf memberships. However, some tennis and social memberships are still available.
