Where the Bucs Play
MIAMI SHORES COUNTRY CLUB
One of the oldest courses in Miami, established in the 1920s, Miami Shores Country Club is an 18-hole course, featuring push-up greens common to older designs. The course plays 5,800 yards from the ladies' tees and 6,600 yards from the professional tees.
Tree-lined fairways meander through the residential areas of Miami Shores and cross Biscayne Canal at several points.
Miami Shores Country Club features a lighted driving range and complete pro shop and restaurant area. Both the Barry men's and women's golf teams use the course extensively because of its proximity to the university campus.
PARKLAND GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB
Located in what is known as the "relaxed city," Parkland Golf & Country Club by Toll Brothers is a one of a kind, family-focused, yet luxurious community that offers the perfect combination of active recreational living and convenience, surrounded by a par 72, 7,118-yard Greg Norman golf course.
Parkland Golf & Country Club is more than a clubhouse, golf course or tennis club, it is a lifestyle marked by a balance of style and ultimate convenience within a tight knit community that distinguishes itself through a strong sense of neighborhood, active living, and a multitude of options not offered by any other community in the area.
CORAL RIDGE COUNTRY CLUB
Coral Ridge Country Club was founded in 1954 by golf's most innovative architect, Robert Trent Jones, and his wife, Ione. The development of the land that the club now stands on started with the construction of the Florananda Golf Course which began in the 1920s but was halted when the stock market crashed in 1929 forced the board members to give it up. In 1954 Mr. Jones saw an opportunity in the unfinished course and devised a plan to mold the land to his intricate specifications.
Construction for Coral Ridge Country Club began in September of 1954 and the Club was soon opened in February of 1955 with Mr. Jones as President. He had a vision of a true, traditional private club with a challenging, championship course.
Over the years, the classic Robert Trent Jones golf course has remained the core of the Club, drawing accomplished players and beginners alike.

DON SHULA'S GOLF CLUB
You can start with the Hall of Fame legend himself, Coach Shula, or go to the other hall of fame greats from almost any walk of life, and what you will have is one of the most historic golf courses in the Southeast. Shula's Golf Course has played host to some of the most famous legends in America ranging from Joe DiMaggio, Shirley Povich, Stan Musial, Jackie Gleason, Mickey Rooney, and Michael Jordan.
Don Shula's Golf Course was designed in 1962 by architect Bill Watts from Florida's famous first family, the Grahams. It was designed in the traditional format of large greens for long holes and smaller greens for shorter holes. The course was originally planted with thousands of trees, located on what is now the ninth fairway. Today only two of the original trees still stand, thanks to Hurricane Andrew, which destroyed over 500 trees.
HILLCREST GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB
The famous La Gorce Golf Course was salvaged from the sea in 1923, and upon its completion in 1927 was named after a great sportsman, John Oliver La Gorce.
At 7,076 yards, Hillcrest Golf Club is an ageless Devlin/Von Hagge design that has matured into a classic layout which has become one of Southeast Florida's premier semi-private facilities. The newly watered tees, greens, and fairways insure excellent course conditions through the summer months. The beauty of Hillcrest lies within the mature and colorful trees that surround each fairway. Hillcrest has three ponds and a winding stream, adding to the scenery. Wide fairways and small bent-grass greens characterize the course which is a joy to walk.
