Bonita National G&CC picks Troon

Gordon Lewis-designed course provides the centerpiece for expansive SW Florida community.


Troon has been selected to manage Bonita National Golf & Country Club in Bonita Springs, Florida. Troon Privé, the private club operating division of Troon, will manage the award-winning club as well as the community association.

Located in Southwest Florida between Fort Myers and Naples, the Bonita National community consists of 1,459 homes with all residents social members of the Golf & Country Club and 866 full golf memberships. The Club’s Gordon Lewis-designed 18-hole golf course opened in 2014 and winds its way through the community, which is bordered by a nature preserve.

“As the committee performed its due diligence on Troon, when contacting other Troon-managed clubs, every club contacted gave Troon excellent reviews,” said Bob Pacheco, president of Bonita National Golf Club Board and a member of the overall search committee. “On behalf of the Golf Board and golf members, we are extremely excited with the selection of Troon and anticipate the prominent level of service and member satisfaction Troon is nationally and internationally known for.”

“As we look to take Bonita National to the ‘next level’ of service at our clubhouse, amenities and throughout the community, Troon was the obvious choice,” said Salvatore Dona, president of the Bonita National Homeowners Association. “We are confident that Troon’s expertise and resources will provide an exceptional experience for all of our members.”

Troon operations VP Ricardo Catarino said the company feels “privileged to be entrusted by both boards” — golf club and homeowners — “as they seek to further elevate the quality of the lifestyle experience for all residents and members. Bonita National has all the ingredients to become a name of reference for those looking for an active lifestyle community in Southwest Florida and our goal is to collaborate with leadership to make that a reality.”
