South Florida welcoming its first new golf club in decades
Greater Miami’s first new golf club in decades is launching next fall — with a million-dollar initiation fee.
Members so far include professional golfers such as Ian Poulter, Patrick Reed, Lee Westwood, Henrik Stenson and Sam Horsfield.
It is part of a 120-acre private community that includes Accommodations at Shell Bay — A 20-story residential tower with 108 units developed by the Wittkoff Group and PPG Development in partnership with Auberge Resort Collection, along with a 60-room hotel.
Condo prices range from $3 million for a one-bedroom to an $11 million four-bedroom penthouse with a wrap terrace.
At 501 Diplomat Parkway in Hallandale Beach – 2 miles north of Golden Beach along the Intracoastal Waterway – the gated property is anchored by the 7,250-yard Greg Norman-designed championship golf course.
The complex also includes a gym, fitness facilities, a 48-slip private marina and yacht club, four grand slam tennis court surfaces and event space.
Douglas Elliman has just begun sales for the residences, which will be completed by 2025. “This is the first new golf course in Miami in 25 years,” said Alex Wittkoff, co-CEO of the Wittkoff Group.
“The complex fills a void in the market,” said Ari Pearl, founder and CEO of PPG Development.
