18-hole, par 72 golf course After a $6.5 million dollar renovation, including complete re-routing of the golf course and new playing surfaces, Buenaventura Golf course opened in March of 2005. With large bent grass greens, coupled with emerald green rye grass fairways, Buenaventura will be one of the finest municipal courses in the Southland. With subtle undulations and contours, all the greens have been re-sculpted using classic Bell designs. Beautiful mature trees line Buenaventura’s pristine fairways and white sand bunkers guard the greens. The new design enhances the woodlands feel that people loved so much about the old Buenaventura. The hazards look like they were not merely manufactured, but rather discovered in the landscape. Among the many new considerations for the new course, safety, playability, strategy and variety all played key rolls in the development of the new design.
