Just as it was, the original Robert Trent Jones Sr layout was good and deemed to be among the best and most beautiful in Miami. But things had to change for the better. Whatever was better than the best, Raymond Floyd interpreted and delivered. Today, the Miller Course of the Turnberry Isle Resort bears a charm and quality that is mostly unheard of in most Miami golf vacation destinations.
The Miller Course of the Turnberry Isle took a general and major overhaul by Floyd in 2007, some 30 plus years since it first opened as a RTJ creation. From a relatively flat course following the natural contours of the Florida terrain, this new face of the golf course carries a more sophisticated and more exciting course with mounds and elevation changes. Moreover, Floyd added more water elements to the holes making it more exciting and extremely beautiful. And with the stunningly gorgeous Lake Julius as its centerpiece, golfers are assured of golf vacations that are as beautiful to play as they are to see.
Challenge-wise, the Miller Course is the friendlier of the two courses on the Turnberry Isle Resort. The other one, the Soffer, is lengthier and tougher, while the Miller is shorter and is played as the resort course. It is just the right mix of fun and fierce without going overboard either way, making golf trips here just as they should be: relaxing. The course measures 6,417 yards from the tips, and plays for a par of 72.
