Doug Garrett, an employee at the Bonita Bay Club golf course, retrieves a bag of clubs for a member in the new baggage room at the club in Bonita Springs. Since taking over the Bonita Bay Club six months ago, members have agreed to spend $3.5 million on improvements. Some of those renovations include new storage for members' golf bags and clubs. The storage space increased capacity by about 100 bags, allowing the facility to house 2,752 bags in shelves that roll on casters for easy mobility. Lexey Swall/Staff
Bonita Bay Club is like a new club. The club is now owned by its members. There are new operating and employee policies, new committees, new staff, new programs – and most noticeably there is a new look.
