Believe it or not, Miami is a great place to have a golf vacation, or have a round on the weekends or after work. Unlike a lot of cities, great golf can be had without a membership. Enjoy Haute Living’s Top 5 Golf Courses in Miami

1 Trump National Doral

The Donald’s $350 million investment has clearly paid off. The new gleaming white sand bunkers give this tired classic a dramatic and fresh look. The pros and spectators at the WGC Cadillac Championship raved that the updated Doral surpassed their expectations. If you played it in past years, you won’t recognize any of the holes except the iconic 18th. While Trump’s helipad adjacent to the 18th green is a bit much, you have to say he backed up his braggadocio in this redesign.

2 Turnberry Isle

Both the Soffer and recently renovated Miller courses provide challenge and beauty to the resort’s guests. The Soffer course plays long and tight and numerous lakes, mounds and bunkers flank the fairways, making it an enjoyable challenge. The waterfall on the island green on the 18th is a wonderful way to conclude your round.

3 Miami Beach Golf Club

It might be a muni, but it sure doesn’t play like one! Arthur Hills’ spectacular 2002 redesign still sizzles. The greens run fast and true, and course conditioning is impeccable. You can feel the pulse beat of South Beach and see deco hotels in the distance as you tack your way around this magnificent course.

4 Crandon Golf Key Biscayne

Unless you are really on your game, you are likely to lose a ball or two in the mangroves and swamp. But Crandon’s unsurpassed tropical habitat and often present wildlife make for a memorable experience augmented by sweeping views of the Biscayne Bay and Miami's skyline.

5 The Biltmore

This Donald Ross-designed classic, first opened in 1925. Brian Silva’s 2007 restoration brought back many of the course’s features that had eroded since Ross’s time. The canal, winding its way through several holes has bedeviled the game’s best for generations. One of the great visuals in golf is the pitch shot to the par 5 18th, with the massive hotel looming in the background. Pick out a window for a target (try for the Al Capone suite at the top) and have a go.
