The Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort & Club
The Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort & Club (19999 West Country Club Drive, Aventura) — PGA legend and World Golf Hall of Famer Raymond Floyd headed the design for both the North and South courses, and he spared no expense – Turnberry reportedly shelled out more than $100,000 per hole. The expensive fun starts at the first tee of the South Course, where guests gape at a waterfall – one of a handful that dot the course. You have to be a resort guest or a member to play, but with all the new upgrades, it’s well worth it to wangle an invitation.
Who’s there: Big money and big business. The Turnberry is not cheap but the resort invests the money into the amenities. Floyd also makes rare visits to play his masterpieces. Prices: From $290 in the winter to $125 in the summer. Off-season twilight deals (after 2:30 p.m.) run as low as $95.
