Aventura's Premier Golf Courses

The luxurious JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resorts & Spa is a paradise for golfers. It’s home to both the par-72 Soffer and par-70 Miller courses, which are consistently ranked among 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 greens’ contoured fairways. The courses are available to members of the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa Golf Course and to hotel guests for a greens fee.

For those interested in improving their game, the resort offers both private instruction and group clinics. Under the direction of 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 scheduled clinics throughout the week, including regular Junior Golf Clinics for young players.

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 equipped with GPS. If you’re traveling without clubs, you can rent premium Callaways directly from the onsite Pro Shop.

Located across the street from Aventura Mall, one of the country’s largest shopping centers, the resort also features a relaxing spa and several restaurants.
