GOLF COMMUNITIES, GOLF COURSES & COUNTRY CLUBS:
Miami is best known for it’s tropical feel … sun drenched beaches, sizzling nightlife and temperate climate. Beyond that though, Miami is a world class golf destination… offering resort, private, and public golf courses for competitive as well as recreational golfers… and golf communities where one can indulge. For anyone who loves the sport, there are numerous choices that will appeal. I’ve included a link here for South Florida Golf Destinations. Below are links to a number of exclusive private golf communities in Miami-Dade (as well as private country clubs and public golf courses)… I’ve highlighted several of the most highly regarded courses and communities.
