Deering Bay’s world-class amenities include an Arnold Palmer Signature golf course that is widely considered to be one of the top private clubs in the area. Set on a tough 6,500 yard track that takes golfers through mangrove forests, bay front views and past the occasional endangered American Crocodile, Deering Bay’s scenic course proves to be enjoyable to all skill levels. In 2007, The Arnold Palmer Design Company was hired to oversee a complete renovation and re-grassing. The golf course is impeccably maintained and is guaranteed to satisfy even the most discerning golfer. Each hole offers a visual and strategic playing experience that is situated in one of nature’s most spectacular settings. Here are some of the highlights:
Our Front Nine begins with a short, yet tricky par 4 and continues past our Marina and Grand Marina. On Number 2 you’ll find a long par 3 with water on both sides. If you end up with a lost ball, don’t let the magnificent yachts to your right steal your concentration, there’s more beauty to come. Our 3rd hole borders an inlet for Biscayne Bay, where you can spot a manatee if you’re lucky and doglegs left to a lengthy green. Let’s jump ahead over to our 9th hole, which is a par 5 that clocks in at a short 492 yards from the Gold Tees but boy is it challenging. Once again, you’ll be driving over water to a tight landing fairway bordered by our magnificent lagoon on the right and a mangrove marsh on the left. Your second shot tests your patience with a tidal creek running the width of the fairway at about 200 yards from the green. Those who lay up or go for the green will reach an undulating green lined with three traps. One of our most scenic holes is up next with Number 12. Featuring a 75 foot high raised tee box, this medium length par 3 requires a steady hand as you hit over our lagoon into a tight green with danger on all sides except right. Number 13 is our number 2 handicap and sets up as a nice sized par 4. A small lake and sand trap in front of the green have been known to swallow a ball or two. Lastly, number 18 is a long par 4 that frequently sets up into the wind. Testing your stamina with out of bounds on the right and trees on your left, it requires two long shots to get on the green in regulation.
