Golf Course Overview
Located minutes from the Miccosukee Resort and Gaming Center, The Miccosukee Golf and Country Club is considered by many to have the best course layout in the Miami metro area. Miccosukee offers 27 holes spread over three courses, the Marlin course, the Barracuda course, and the Dolphin course. Formerly known as the Miami National Golf Club, the courses at Miccosukee have hosted a number of tournaments, including those attended by Jack Nicklaus.
The design for the courses was conceived by Mark Mahannah and stretches out over 6,700 yards. The par 72 course brings water into play at most every turn and the lightning-fast greens challenge golfers throughout the entire round.
