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.

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!

The Diplomat Golf and Tennis Club is ideally located in Hollywood Miami, just 10 minute driving from Turnberry Isle Miami.

The signature hole at the Diplomat arrives early on in the front 9: the 2nd hole, which is a short par 4 with an island green. The 16th par 5 features a tight tee shot, where the corner can be cut if you're willing to take the risk! The 17th is a short par 3 guarded by water and the 18th also offers plenty risk-reward opportunities on the tee shot.
