Country Club Of Miami
Hialeah, FL 33015
Miami New Times' Description
While the notion of a country club might call to mind an upper crust, exclusionary establishment, the Country Club of Miami is actually anything but. This Robert Trent Jones designed course boasts 36 holes and a surprisingly egalitarian setup. The two courses range in price depending on season, but usually it's $45 to $50 to play. The driving range is cheap, well lit and open from dawn till dusk. Heck, they even have a Friday night driving range happy hour when range buckets run $1. There's a restaurant/bar on site, too, in good golf tradition. So when your golf swing needs a little work and your wallet a little break -- head out to Hialeah for an afternoon.
Country Club of Miami is comprised of two beautifully manicured Florida golf courses, with lush fairways, newly re-grassed greens and 36 championship holes. A Robert Trent Jones design, the club was founded in 1961, with Arnold Palmer as its first professional. As Country Club’s most famous member and resident, comedian-actor Jackie Gleason played host to celebrity golfers including Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. Jack Nicklaus played his first professional tournament and Lee Trevino won his fourth professional at the club.
