Do: Hit the Links Miami offers numerous renowned public golf courses. If you're looking to play on a budget, head to the Palmetto Golf Course, where you can book a tee time for less than $17. If you're willing to spend significantly more for one of the best-known courses in Miami, tee off at the Marriott Doral Golf Resort and Spa. Winner of numerous honors, including being named one of the 75 Best Golf Resorts in North America by Golf Digest, the Doral features five world-class courses, including the Blue Monster (named for the huge lake in the middle of it), Greg Norman's Great White, and Raymond Floyd's gold course. It also plays host to a Jim McLean golf school.
Stay: Marriott Doral Golf Resort and Spa There is something for everyone at the Marriott Doral: world-class golf; a full-service spa; a 125-foot waterslide. And it's all graced with warm, friendly service in a scenic resort setting. Just know that you're isolated on-site, you're nowhere near the beach, and everything costs extra -- often quite a bit extra.
