Miami is a different sort of American city, and it boasts outstanding golf courses and resorts, including Doral Golf Resort and Spa, the Ritz-Carlton on Key Biscayne, the Biltmore Hotel and Shula\'s Hotel and Golf Club.
MIAMI - (April 9, 2007) - If Miami is indeed a third-world country, as Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo (in)famously claimed, then I\'m planning on visiting some more third-world golf resorts.
People in Miami protested Tancredo\'s characterization, of course, though most Americans couldn\'t understand the protests because they were in Spanish.
EspaŮol or Ingles, Miami is a different sort of American city, stuck way down there on the southern tip of the country, so close to Cuba. Even its golf is different. The city and its environs don\'t have the sheer number of golf courses Orlando does, or Myrtle Beach further north into the American heartland.
What it does have is some ritzy golf resorts with some great courses - old, new and in between. Here are four of the city\'s golf resorts I visited recently, and ones you should check out if you\'re planning a trip.
Doral Golf Resort and Spa Doral is the longest-running PGA Tour stop in Florida, which is why a lot of people have heard the name. What some people might not know is that Doral is also a world-class resort, with five golf courses in all, and a world-class spa.
The Doral Golf Resort and Spa has a classic, Miami look, with palm trees swaying from the ocean breezes, under blue, cloudless skies. It seems to take up the entire town of Doral, spread out over 650 acres.
The spa is a big attraction here, but make no mistake, golf is the centerpiece. In fact, it\'s sometimes referred to as the \"Kingdom of Golf.\" Its five courses make it unique among South Florida golf resorts.
First, of course, is the Blue Monster. It\'s a deceptively difficult course. It\'s South Florida flat, and there is nothing tricky or wacky about the greens. They\'re relatively flat and easy to read, if you\'re at all familiar with Bermuda grass.
