NAPLES, Fla. (Feb. 28, 2007) - Florida is different from the rest of the country.
That even goes for golf-course construction - especially in southwest Florida, long
a boom spot for golfers.

While the country overall lost golf courses last year for the first time in 60
years, the Florida counties of Collier and Lee down near the 10,000 Islands and
Everglades continue to turn them out.

\"Southwest Florida is definitely bucking the national trend of golf-course
construction slowdown,\" said Joey Garon, vice president of operations for Bonita Bay
Group, a developer.

Bonita Bay is a prime example, with two new courses set to open in the first quarter
of 2007 - Whispering Oak, a Jack Nicklaus/Jack Nicklaus II design at the company\'s
Verandah community in Fort Myers, and the Aerie, a Gary Player championship course
at TwinEagles in North Naples.

\"In addition, we opened a Golf Learning Center at Mediterra in North Naples earlier
this month,\" Garon says.
