The redesign of JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa’s two world-class 18-hole golf courses has been completed. Re-imagined by golf icon Raymond Floyd from the original Robert Trent Jones, Sr. design, the “Soffer” and “Miller” courses offer members and resort guests improved playing conditions and faster greens. The resort, a coveted destination for golfers from across the globe, has also announced they will host the Stack & Tilt golf camp in May 2020 under the direction of co-founder and PGA and Tour Coach, Andy Plummer. The impressive roster of PGA golf pros on staff, variety of golf packages and educational programming and enhanced championship golf courses make JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa the go-to golf resort in the Southeast.

The $1 million plus upgrades were implemented to modernize both courses to create ideal playing conditions for all levels of players from novice to professional. Key among the improvements to the Soffer Course is the addition of all brand new TifEagle greens, which provide a more consistent green speed and better playing conditions for all players. The Soffer course has five sets of tee boxes that can accommodate all levels and the Miller Course has six sets of tee boxes. Additionally, there is a newly added fairway bunker on the eighth hole; more land has been added to the ninth hole and a new tee complex for the tenth and16th holes. Updates to the Miller Course include new tee boxes on the ninth and tenth and a brand-new front driving range, chipping and putting greens.

Andy Plummer, one of the most sought-after and well-respected teachers in the world of golf is on staff and available for private lessons.  Additionally, golf enthusiasts can look forward to the Stack & Tilt Camp, which will be hosted at the club May 2020. This unique event, strictly limited to 8 students, offers golfers of all levels the chance to immerse themselves in an intensive 3 day “CAMP” surrounded by world class instructors. The format ensures golfers develop all areas of their games with multiple stations including Stack & Tilt putting, Short Game System, Trackman and one-to-one time with Andy Plummer.
