Carved out of 800 acres of native Florida foliage and playing like a classic links course, Tiburón Golf Club is a favorite of both professional and amateur golfers alike. Golf legend and course designer Greg Norman blended traditional and modern elements to create The Gold Course and The Black Course — two elegant and stunningly beautiful courses that are challenging for any player. Every year Tiburón hosts the LPGA CME Group Tour Championship and the PGA TOUR QBE Shootout.
The Gold Course
Opened in 1998, The Gold Course at Tiburón was designed by Greg Norman and is one of two 18-hole championship courses spread out on 800 acres in the luxury residential community. The Gold Course has more coquina shell-lined waste bunkers than its sister, The Black Course, but there’s also more room to drive the ball and more opportunities to run the ball up on the greens. The sprawling bunkers are hard to avoid, especially since there are almost 50 placed strategically throughout, while water hazards also come into play on 13 holes.
The Black Course
Opened in 2001, The Black Course at Tiburón can play over 7,000 yards from the tournament tees and features a mix of sod-walled bunkers and large, natural waste bunkers, creating firm and fast, links-style conditions. Following Norman’s philosophy of maximizing the natural allure of the land, there are no contrived undulations or plant life not native to the area. From your first drive to your last putt, you will find yourself at one with nature and a part of the world’s ultimate golf experience — Tiburón Golf Club.
