Tropical weather and championship courses make Miami a great golf destination.

There's nothing like a succesful mixing of business with pleasure. When it comes to Miami, golfing is as hot down here during the day as the clubs are at night—especially when paired with decadent amenities such as those you'll find at the Biltmore Hotel. Whether you're traveling for pleasure and love to spend the day on the back nine or trying to add a little entertainment with clients during a busy week, there's a course around Miami for you. Golf is a leisurely sport that everyone can enjoy, and with the tropical heat in Miami, don't be afraid to let yourself add that extra bit of panache when choosing your golf attire.
