Historic Miami Shores Country Club is truly unique in South Florida.
Miami Shores Country Club is located in the Village of Miami Shores in Miami-Dade County. Early in 1939, work crews began clearing 130 acres of woodland for the new Miami Shores Village Golf and Country Club. Partial funding for the construction came from the federal government’s Works Progress Administration (WPA) program. Golf course architects Robert F. “Red” Lawrence and Louis Wilson planned the course and directed its construction. Lawrence and Wilson were former associates of the architectural firm of Toomey & Flynn. The golf course opened in the fall of 1939. Two major hazards bisect the golf course, the Biscayne Canal Number C-8 and the Florida East Coast railroad, the latter of which is now deemed out of bounds.
In 2011, the golf course underwent a major renovation which included installing Mini Verde Bermuda on the greens. Improvements also included tee and fairway renovations, restoration of bunkers, re-shaping of greens and general upgrades to playability and conditioning. The course has been host to a number of prestigious events including the Florida State Open. Celebrity players Bob Hope, Joe DiMaggio, Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead, and Lee Trevino have graced the lush fairways.
The Miami Shores Country Club includes an 18-hole, par-71 golf course that features four sets of tees ranging from 5,000 to 6,700 yards. Located less than 15 minutes from downtown Miami, Miami Beach, and the Miami International Airport, Miami Shores is a “must play” course for anyone who enjoys the game of golf, and you can play this magnificent course at an affordable price.
