The Best Golf Courses Near Missoni BaiaPosted 06.19.2021
Looking for a membership at a premier Miami golf club? Edgewater is close to some of the finest in Florida — boasting championship-grade fairways rich in golfing heritage, plus superlative dining for post-game indulgence. Here are four of the best clubs to tee off from.
One of Miami’s most iconic courses, the Biltmore Golf Course was designed in 1925 by the great Donald Ross, and is located on the salubrious grounds of the Seville Cathedralinspired Biltmore Hotel. Get kitted out in the pro shop before hitting the 18-hole course, featuring USGA-specified greens, lush with TifEagle Bermuda Grass. Biltmore Golf Course is steeped in sporting history; it was where the lucrative Miami – Biltmore Open used to be held, and has hosted a roll call of celebrities, from Babe Ruth to Tiger Woods.
Turnberry Isle Country Club
Less than a half hour due northeast from Midtown Miami’s Edgewater condos, Turnberry Isle Country Club offers not one, but two championship courses — totalling 36 holes of worldclass golfing. Play in the footsteps of PGA and LPGA tour pros — first tackling the Soffer Course, followed by the more challenging Miller Course. High-caliber caddies are on hand to assist you, while staff will advise you on your swing. Celebrate your new handicap with a post-game visit to Bourbon Steak, tucking into Wagyu striploin and craft cocktails.
La Gorce Country Club
The legendary La Gorce Country Club is a brisk trip across the Julia Tuttle Causeway from East Edgewater — making it particularly convenient for Missoni Baia residents. Jack Nicklaus himself had a hand in the current design of the course, which is known for its wellgroomed greens, backdropped by the Miami Beach skyline. You’ll need an invitation to become a member, but once you’re in, La Gorce’s 18-hole championship course, and one of Miami’s most prestigious country clubs, will be at your feet.
Deering Bay Yacht & Country Club
Arnold Palmer named this in his top 16 in the world — and it’s little wonder given Deering Bay Yacht & Country Club‘s magnificently maintained par-71 course. This Biscayne Bay golfing haven is embellished with breathtaking beauty: lush mangroves, undulating waterways, and resident peacocks. Golf isn’t the only sport on offer; you can also take to the clay tennis courts and junior Olympic-sized pool, or even charter a yacht. The dining at Deering Bay is exquisite; wind down after an afternoon on the fairway with Maine lobster and Champagne.
