Florida golf: Club de Bonmont re-opens
The Club de Bonmont golf course has re-opened after a total reconstruction. The course, one of three at Plantation Bay, near Daytona Beach, was strengthened by noted Florida architect Steve Smyers, who was asked to add a little challenge to the 20-year-old track.
“From the tee, it is visually stimulating – which is really what we were looking for, along with the strategy of the golf course,” general manager Greg Brousse told Cybergolf. “You now have to strategize yourself around the golf course , which is a neat feeling we never had before.”
There was a soft opening for members in late October, and Fred Funk will christen the new design November 6 on “Fred Funk Day.”
They spent $20 million on the renovation, in which Smyers added a new lake that will serve as the centerpiece of the course, as well as adding bunkers and changing the routing. A new clubhouse is expected to be built next year.
