MICCOSUKEE GOLF CLUB (305-382-3930)
Florida Golf Course Review
Formerly known as Miami National, Miccosukee Golf & Country Club just 15 minutes west of downtown Miami, is a 27-hole championship facility that has hosted numerous PGA
and LPGA events. The Mark Mahannah designed course was purchased in 2001 by the Missosuki tribe, and is the centerpiece of a resort & gaming community that includes a
luxurious hotel, convention and special event accommodations, five dining options, daily live entertainment, recreational activities plus 24-hour casino gaming (video pull tab
machines, poker and bingo).
Considered as one of the best values in South Florida, this layout is annually home to the Nationwide Tour, and features a 6700 yard design that includes water hazards at nearly
every turn. Quick-rolling Tifdwarf putting surfaces line the green complexes on all three nines, which are well protected by bunkers. In all, 119 sand traps are located along the
landing areas or greenside, creating an exciting and formidable challenge for all levels of golfers. Water is in play on the perimeters or crossing the fairways on every hole!
Three sets of tee boxes provide golfers with options of playing to distances ranging from 6719 to 5322 yards and slopes ranging from 132 to 118. Recently, 13 new tee boxes were
added and three greens were rebuilt. There is a lighted driving range that accommodates up top 50 golfers that is open to the public from 6:30 am until 10 pm year round, and a
practice green is also on property.
The clubhouse includes a pro shop with equipment and accessories, the Miccosukee on the Green restaurant which serves weekend breakfast buffets, dinners and Sunday
Brunch, and The Grill Room which serves breakfast and casual lunch daily and dinners Thursdays and Fridays. Outings and special events of various sizes can be catered in on
Pro Link GPS is standard on all carts, providing accurate measurements and useful info from tee to pin on every hole, and rear end covers provide protection for clubs during
inclement weather. On course there also are yardage markers at 100, 150 and 200 yards, and sprinkler heads are measured to the center of the green. Color coded flags indicate
the day's hole locations as front, middle or back. The photos in this review are of the Marlin and Dolphin nines. Ample fairways bordered by trees and perimeter water hazards,
plus raised green complexes that are mounded and well protected by bunkers combine with fine conditioning to make this a memorable round. For more info, visit our page for the
