Crandon Golf Key Biscayne is a championship 18-hole golf course located on the "island paradise" of Key Biscayne, just 10 minutes from downtown Miami. It is the perfect alternative during a city golf trip where you can spend a day enveloped by the tropics!
Crandon Golf is an explosion of color and light surrounded by water, mangroves and lush, tropical foliage. You can experience the local wildlife in its natural habitat too. Secluded and inviting, Crandon is the only public golf course on the Bay.
Crandon was the site of the Senior PGA Tour for the past 18 years, attracting golf’s greats including Lee Trevino, Chi Chi Rodriguez, Don Messengale, Ray Floyd and Gary Player. The course is considered one of the most beautiful and difficult par-72 courses in the state.
Crandon’s seventh hole is touted as “One of the Greatest Holes in Golf,” a gorgeous par 4 that doglegs to the right and sends your golf ball soaring over the beautiful bay.
The course offers a unique playing experience featuring seven saltwater lakes, challenging sand traps, mangrove thickets, and holes overlooking Biscayne Bay. It's the only course with a subtropical lagoon in North America.

Venue: WGC – Cadillac Championship
The Blue Monster at Trump Doral hosts the World Golf Championships on the PGA Tour’s “Florida Swing”.
Gil Hanse’s renovations in 2013 reinstated the Monster status of this course just in time for 23 year old Patrick Reed’s victory at the 2014 WGC – Cadillac Championship. The additional length, plateaued greens and extensive water hazards challenged the world’s best leaving them eager to prove themselves in 2015.
The Blue Monster course features spectacular holes with the famous 18th hole ranked by GOLF Magazine in the Top 100 Holes in the World.
The Golden Palm Course at Doral incorporates gently contoured greens, strategic bunkering and water surrounding 16 holes.
The layout, designed by multiple major champion Ray Floyd, is a visual treat with tall coconut palms and tropical foliage framing the holes. It features narrow, tree-lined fairways and finishes with a dramatic approach to an island green on the par-four 18th.
The Red Course forces golfers to use strategy and shot placement, rather than trying to overpower the course. The course provides a good challenge without intimidating length, with fairways winding around several water features.
The Red Course hosted the LPGA in 2001 for the Office Depot Championship.
Jim McLean is one of the world’s top golf instructors and has long had an association with Doral Golf Resort - his on-site golf school is entering its 19th year in 2010. Jim kindly agreed in 2009 to put his name to resort’s newest course, formerly the Silver Course, which re-opened in November 2009 as the “Jim McLean Signature Course” following an extensive redesign.
The course joins the infamous Blue Monster and the Great White as the third of Doral’s premier courses. The first 3 holes represent a challenging start by any standards – par 4s each measuring around 500 yards from the tips!
“The Bermuda Triangle” loop of holes 13 to 15 are the Amen corner of the McLean Signature – which includes the island green par 3, 14th.
Five sets of tees makes the course very playable for all levels of player. The course is located just a short shuttle ride from the main Doral resort – unlike the other 4 courses (Blue, White, Red & Gold) which are all walk-on courses from your accommodation.

Originally opened as the Bayshore Golf Course in 1923, in 2002 the course received a $10 million face-lift reopening as Miami Beach Golf Club.
The face-lift was major: every blade of grass and most trees removed; lakes drained, redesigned and refilled; irrigation system replaced, even hills and bunkers bulldozed and resculpted; the old clubhouse demolished and a new clubhouse was constructed.
“The result is a beautifully restored landmark that will be enjoyed by South Florida residents and visitors from around the world for years to come," said Jorge Gonzalez, Miami Beach City Manager.
The Club at Emerald Hills is one of South Florida’s finest championship golf courses.
Centrally located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami in the city of Hollywood, Florida, The Club at Emerald Hills displays a harmonious blend of undulating greens, contoured bunkers and hills, all meticulously maintained to guarantee you a challenge.
As host site for the PGA Tour Honda Open Qualifiers, The Club has also hosted U.S. Open, U.S. Senior Open, U.S. Amateur, U.S. Mid-Amateur, and U.S. Public Links qualifiers as well as several local PGA events.
The course received an extensive facelift in the summer of 2000 with many improvements including new TifEagle greens, tees, and bunkers. The ownership continues to improve the course every year, and has since added numerous coquina waste bunkers and native grass plantings to add additional character and challenge to the impeccably maintained layout.
The course features generous landing areas for most tee shots, but requires precision approach shots into lightning fast, undulating greens in order to score well. Serious players will absolutely love this amazing track!
