This is one the city’s premier golf resorts, boasting two 18-hole championship golf courses, as well as a luxurious spa and three of the area's best restaurants.

Two Premier Golf Courses

Home to both the par 72 Soffer and par 70 Miller Courses, JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa offers a total of 36 holes for golfers to traverse, creating endless variety and challenges. They’re consistently ranked amongst the best resort golf courses by Golfweek magazine. Both were originally designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and have been reimagined by Raymond Floyd with signature features including clever doglegs and strategically placed water features along the rolling green’s contoured fairways. The courses are available to members of the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa Golf Course and hotel guests for a greens fee.

For those interested in improving their game, JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa Golf Course offers both private instruction and group clinics. Led by PGA Director of Instruction Raymond Boone, you’ll learn from the masters through video and Trackman golf swing analysis and gain vital on-course instruction to keep your game competitive. If you’re traveling with a group, you can customize a private clinic with a minimum of four people. There are also a number of regularly scheduled clinics throughout the week, including Junior Golf Clinics for the youngsters on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

As a full service golf resort, JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa Golf Course boasts a driving range and putting green, as well as electric golf carts with GPS. If you’re traveling without clubs, you can rent premium Callaways directly from the onsite Pro Shop.

Unique Dining Experiences

JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa is home to a number of restaurants, including one helmed by a celebrity chef, Bourbon Steak by Michael Mina. Bourbon Steak is consistently ranked one of the city’s top steakhouses and is best enjoyed for dinner post-golf once you’ve cleaned up. Known for its decadent duck fat fries, prime cuts of meat and stellar wine cellar, this is a special occasion restaurant perfect for celebrating a winning day on the greens.

Corsair is also the site of the golf course’s 19th watering hole for post-golf cocktails or Sunday brunch with a back patio overlooking the greens. Corsair is an American-inspired kitchen and bar. Corsair’s contemporary cuisine attracts those looking for lighter comfort food prepared with regionally sourced, wholly natural ingredients.

There are also a number of restaurants and bars around the pools and spas that provide a great place to reunite with family for lunch after a morning of golf.

Premier Resort Amenities

While the resort is an oasis for golfers, it also offers plenty of other amenities for the discerning traveler. Make it a well-rounded visit by taking advantage of the hotel’s spa, fitness center and swimming pools.

There is nothing like a deep tissue sports massage (one of 13 different massages currently offered) after a day of golfing, so book a service at Ame Spa & Wellness Collective at JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa for post-game. They all address the four pillars: relaxation, warming the muscles, treating individual sections and flexibility. The 3,650-square-foot fitness center is open 24-hours a day with Life Fitness equipment, a spinning studio, aerobics studio and private and group classes.
