Perfectly nestled in Normandy Isle’s serene residential area is the Normandy Shores Golf Club. Considered as one of Miami’s best-kept secrets, this million-dollar golf layout has been the center of attraction for both the local and foreign guests after the major renovations were made by the famous Arthur Hills. Part of the major restoration was the re-grassing of the entire golf course with the paspalum grass as well as adding more undulations and expanding the greens. The golf course was closed for almost three years just to complete the stunning changes. And when it re opened in 2008, golfers coming from the different parts of the globe started to flock Miami Beach to experience one of the state’s finest. The Normandy Shores started its operations in 1915 and later became a part of the U.S. Army-Air Forces training camp during the World War II. And in 1956, Mark Manahah was hired to redesign the entire layout.
This 18-hole public golf course now features the rolling fairways, bunkers, and water hazards that will surely test even the highly skilled golfers. It also offers the three sets of tees ranging from 5,900 yards all the way to 6,800 yards of play. And while on play, guests can have the best views of the Biscayne Bay with the soothing breeze as well as the tropical wild life backdrop. Spotted on the golf layout regularly are the legendary professional golfers including Arnold Palmer, Peter Thompson, and Sam Snead.
Before hitting the greens, golfers can have their warming up at the driving range and putting green. And after the exciting golf round, guests can share a meal or two at the Grill Room where the finest selection of salads, sandwiches, as well as the full bar service are featured.
