    This is Golf Territory (If you can afford it!)

    We lugged our golf clubs to Florida with the hopes of golfing three times a week for one month; however, because (during the "Snowbird season) the fees are so expensive, we only golfed twice in the entire month.

    We found that most of the courses are private, and the ones that are open to the public are either too far away, too expensive, or too poorly maintained to enjoy.

    We did golf at BONITA FAIRWAYS in Bonita Springs:
    9751 West Terry Street

    It is an executive golf course of 3400 yards, par 61 and designed by Gordon Lewis.

    It does challenge and improve your short game, but you have very little use for long woods. There are seven Par 4's; the remainder are Par 3's. The front nine features Florida-style hills and valleys, sand traps and several small waterholes. The back nine has larger waterholes, sand traps, doglegs, and they are all surrounded by a nature preserve. It has a Bonita Fairway's Cafe for lunch and drinks.

    This small course cost $35.00 plus tax per person.
    The course was in good shape and the personnell was quite friendly.

    The second course we played on was called
    Hunter's Ridge in Bonita Springs. It was a much larger and better course. We had a coupon cut from the paper and it still cost $55.00 plus tax per person. We enjoyed this course much better.

    Equipment: You need a full set of golf clubs, a couple of dozen balls, golf umbrella, golf ball retriever, golf glove, golf shoes without metal spikes, and traveling case for transporting on the airlines.

    Most all the courses require appropriate dress, which means shirt with a collar and shorts just above the knee. (no cut-offs and no tank tops!)
