There are two championship courses at Turnberry Isle Country Club in Aventura, conveniently situated minutes from Miami's shopping and nightlife. Robert Trent Jones, Sr. originally designed the golf courses in 1971 but Ray Floyd later reworked them in 2007. He stayed true to the original layouts but he made them both more challenging and scenic. Working with the resort's relatively small land area of 300 acres, Floyd carefully sculpted contours and mounding, creating a variety of new elevation changes throughout the landscape. The Miller Course is the shorter and less demanding of Turnberry's two courses. It offers a more player-friendly test but there are still plenty of challenges with strategically placed water hazards and perfectly carved bunkers. In addition to the two golf courses, Turnberry offers a double-sided driving range as well as chipping and putting greens.

Turnberry Isle's sportier test

A golf course does not have to be long to hole one's interest. Even though the Miller Course at Turnberry Isle CC tips out at barely 6,000 yards (and possibly less, after some resort facility expansions lop off a few yards from a few holes), it is a fun, pleasant round of golf. The challenge sort of goes opposite convention: the toughest stretch of golf is at holes 4 through 7, and then the course becomes more scoreable. The result is a round that'll have some burdie opportunities, as long as you can keep the ball in the fairway off the tee. It might be looked down on relative to the longer, better-known Soffer Course, but for the resort golfer, the Miller is its equal.

High price for mediocre golf

Course was average quality and impacted by construction. You should tell players that there are not 18 holes to be played at booking. You should certainly tell them before they tee off so they are not lost on the course. Supposed to have fore caddie. Didn’t. Charged for a grade A exeriece delivered a grade D experience on a grade C course.

Outstanding track!

I loved this course from start to finish. The first couple of holes set you up for the rest of the course. It is a very challenging course yet fair. It is a beast when the wind blows. The course was in great shape. Some of the best greens I've putted on in Florida!!

Best Pass Pallum greens and fairways in all South Florida

Besides having the best pass pallum greens and fairways in all South Florida, they layout is impressive! Especially from the black tees (tips). There are a few new tee boxes that arent even on the scorecard yardages, which makes it even tougher and longer! If you get a chance to play those tees do it, or at least take the walk back there. Its also probably the prettiest courses in all Florida! The gardens and flowers are manicured to perfection! Prestin conditions all around! Awesome experience! Would love to practice there everyday!

Excellent Courses

The Soffer course is more narrow and harder than the Miller course. Both are well maintained and a pleasure to play on. The amenities before and after your round are top notch. Definitely worth the money!
