Top Golf Courses in Miami

1
Trump Doral

Trump Doral

Leave it to Donald Trump to take on the challenge of curating the country’s best golf course. Many of the five 18-hole courses are still undergoing renovation, but play a round at any of the open ones, like the one-of-a-kind Great White, which uses seashells in every one of its holes. Whatever you do, get a swing in the 18th hole of the famed Blue Monster—it was ranked by GOLF Magazine as one of the Top 100 Holes in the world.

Turnberry

Turnberry

If golf is your primary activity during your visit to South Florida, you’ll want to stay at Turnberry Isle Resort & Spa, where the $40 million Soffer & Miller courses are only accessible to hotel guests and members. Redesigned by Hall of Fame-golfer Raymond Floyd, the 36-hole course laden with waterfalls is every golfers dream.

Crandon Golf

Crandon Golf

In addition to offering players a picturesque view of Miami’s skyline and the world’s largest tee, Crandon Golf has been named one of the most challenging par-72 courses in Florida. Don’t be alarmed if you encounter any crocodiles, raccoons, pelicans or iguanas the size of your golf club—they’re regular guests at this course.

Biltmore

Biltmore

Course legend Donald Ross designed the iconic greens in the heart of Coral Gables circa 1925. A grass lift in 2007 by architect Brian Silva paved the way for flush fairways and profound bunkers, inviting all ranks of golf players to tackle the championship course. Try your hand any one of their pristine 18-holes.

Normandy Shores

Normandy Shores

Novices and pros can both enjoy tee time at this Miami Beach golf course that’s been around since 1939. Its proximity to the water makes your game a bit breezy, which depending on how you look at it can be good or bad. Nevertheless, it’s always a good time. Be sure to book at least five days in advance.
