The Miami Beach Golf Club is located in the City of Miami Beach in Miami-Dade County. Originally called the Bay Shore Golf Course, work began on the golf course in 1921. It was part of pioneering developer Carl Fisher’s ambitious Alton Beach subdivision, designed to lure wealthy winter residents from New York, Indianapolis and Detroit. Fisher brought in English course designer Willie Park to lay out the course.
During World War II, the U.S. Army rented the course for $1 a year for use as a training ground; and helmeted, rifle-toting soldiers found themselves running through the course’s palm trees amid the smoke from practice grenades.
In 2002, the City of Miami Beach hired the golf course architectural firm of Arthur Hills/Steve Forrest and Associates to redesign the golf course. Nearly every blade of grass was replaced, every lake was drained, and a new clubhouse was built. The once tired and under-utilized Bayshore has now become the elegant and highly regarded Miami Beach Golf Club. The result is a beautifully restored landmark that will be enjoyed by South Florida residents and visitors from around the world for years to come.
