Country Club of Miami has two traditional 18-hole courses offering a classic Florida golf experience. A Robert Trent Jones design, the club was founded in 1961, with Arnold Palmer as its first professional. As Country Club’s most famous member and resident, comedian-actor Jackie Gleason played host to celebrity golfers including Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. Jack Nicklaus played an exhibition here and Lee Trevino won his fourth professional tournament at the club.
The Country Club of Miami West Course, a 7,017-yard par-72 course with a slope of 132, hosted the 1991 Senior PGA Tour National Qualifying School. The bunkers, lush fairways, and rolling greens offer a challenging adventure. The course was the original site for the former National Airlines Open.
The Country Club of Miami East Course, a 6,353-yard par-70 layout with a slope of 124, requires shot placement and strategy from both the novice and serious golfer.
