Located in the small town of Miami Lakes, Don Shula's Golf Club is one of only four independent golf resorts in the Miami area. Situated on the outskirts of the city of Miami, and a just short drive from South Beach & Miami Beach, Don Shula's Golf Club, is one of only four Miami Golf Resorts.

The resort is a lush tropical garden with a whole host of attractive fascilities and amenities, including a world-class golf course and an AVEDA concept spa. The Spa, the Gardens, the dining, its close proximity to both Miami International Airport and Fort Lauderdale International Airport, all go ta make Shula's Hotel is the perfect location for a golf vacation, wedding, corporate outing or a simple weekend getaway. And talking of corporate outings, Shula's Hotel and Golf Club is well known as one of Miami's top meeting hotels.

The Senator Golf Course:

The Senator Golf Course is, without doubt, one of the Championship Golf Courses in the Miami area. The golf course, an original design by Bill Watts, is a classic style and quite unlike the typical hotel golf course. The Senator Course has recently been updated by nationally recognized Golf Course Architect, Kipp Schulties, making it a truly enjoyable round of golf.

Course Specifications:

The Senator was designed and built by Bill Watts. The 18-hole, par 72 course plays 6,982 yards off the Champion tees for a course rating of 72.3 and a slope 129. With four sets of tees, the course is laid out to make play enjoyable to players of all levels of skill. Low scores are achievable, especially from the much shorter silver tees where the course plays just 5,954 yards, though still maintaining its par of 72.

Green Fees:

  • From $38 to $98, depending upon time of year and day of week

How to get There:

There are two major airports serving the Greater Miami area: Fort Lauderdale Airport and Miami International Airport. These two airports are served by almosts all major US airlines, including United, Delta, Continental, US Air, AirTran, American, and Northwest, and by Air Canada and major airlines from Europe and the United Kingdom.
