There are few activities that can claim to be relaxing and energizing all at once, but golf is among the lucky few. Fortunately, for those who call south Florida home, a great course is never far away. If you’re eager to get some exercise, enjoy the beautiful south Florida weather, and spend some time enjoying a little friendly competition with members of your inner circle, grab your clubs and hit up one of these incredible courses:
Crandon Golf Key Biscayne | 6700 Crandon Boulevard, Key Biscayne
For more than 40 years, Crandon Golf Key Biscayne has been attracting dedicated golfers to the Keys to practice their game on this legendary green. An 18-hole par-72 course, Crandon Golf offers a challenging game in one of the world’s most naturally beautiful settings; in fact, it’s been recognized by both Golf Digestand Golfweek as one of Florida’s premier courses.
Turnberry Isle | 19999 W Country Club Drive, Aventura
Just north of Miami in Aventura is Turnberry Isle, one of south Florida’s best golf clubs. Home to two 18-hole courses designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and updated by Raymond Floyd, Turnberry Isle is a pleasure to play whether you’re an experienced pro or a first-timer. If you’re eager to improve your game, Turnberry Isle is the perfect place to do it — the course’s pros offer private instruction and clinics ideal for novices and experts alike.
Abacoa Golf Club | 105 Barbados Drive, Jupiter
Jet down to Jupiter to check out just what all the fuss is about at Abacoa. Designed by famed course architect Joe Lee — the last course he created before his passing — Abacoa’s 18-hole course is as stunning as it is fun to play. With stunning water features, lakefront, and meticulously manicured green, there’s never a bad time to hit the course at Abacoa. Even new golfers can find out just what it takes to get good in no time, thanks to the course’s professional instructors and driving range.
Normandy Shores Golf Club | 2401 Biarritz Drive, Miami Beach
If you’ve been lucky to score one of the luxury condos at Missoni Baia, you’re just minutes from some of the world’s best golf. The Normandy Shores Golf Club is one of the top courses in the world, and has earned distinction as the home of the South Beach International Amateur tournament. The Arthur Hills-designed 18-hole course is also one of the country’s most beautiful, with lush palm trees overhead, placid lakes dotting the course, and city views in the background.
Country Club of Miami | 6801 NW 186th Street, Hialeah
This Hialeah hotspot is well worth the trip. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, the club has been hosting some of golf’s biggest names, from Jack Nicklaus to Arnold Palmer, since it opened its doors in 1961. The club’s popularity hasn’t waned a bit in the intervening years, thanks to its two courses — a 70-par and 72-par — and its gorgeous location just minutes from Miami.
You don’t have to go far to get on the green if you call south Florida home. Whether you’re enjoying the Jupiter sunshine or putting in Palm Beach, there’s no place like the panhandle to enjoy a great game.
