History

Turnberry Isle Resort & Golf Club through the years

Like a fairy tale, it all started in 1967 when real estate developer Donald Soffer dreamed of turning 750 acres of North Miami Beach sand, mangrove trees and swamps into an upscale, planned residential area and sketched out his vision onto a cocktail napkin. As he transformed the vast swamp land into a planned suburban community, his dream manifested into the thriving city of Aventura, Spanish for “adventure.”

Originally built in the early 1970s as a country club for private members, today, Turnberry Isle Resort & Golf Club continues comprising the tradition of luxury with an exclusive membership program featuring a private Member-Only clubhouse for an international clientele. The resort’s unspoiled beauty was designed around a 100-year-old banyan tree to accommodate and protect the banyan tree’s continued growth and expansion.
