Top golf resorts are found all over Miami and south Florida and each one offers something a little unique. From the stark landscapes carved from an abandoned phosphate mine at Streamsong to the home of PGA matches at PGA National and Trump National Doral/Pritiken Longevity Center to audubon-certified golf courses at Marriott Beach Resort Marco Island.
Have trouble making your tee times? Golf where they're not required - just show up and pick your starting hole at the Gasparilla Inn and Club. Want a change from the ordinary clubhouse? Head to Hammock Beach Resort's Conservatory Course tucked inside a huge, light-filled domed greenhouse.
When was the last time you walked a resort course? Both Streamsong courses the Red and Blue provide a good walk, unspoiled. Some resorts like Trump National Doral, Turnberry Isle, PGA National and Streamsong offer players a caddy who knows the course, for a true PGA Tour experience.
And if your game needs a tune-up before your round, many resorts offer on-site instruction, from the Leadbetter Academy at PGA National to the Annika Sorenstam Academy and the Putting PAD at Reunion Golf Resort and Spa.
If you're a fan of golf course designers Dye, Floyd, Palmer, Nicklaus, Miller, Watson, you'll find them all here in Florida starting in Miami and stretching outside the city.
