Where2Golf says: 

Tiburón Golf Club (Black course): Tiburón enjoys two excellent and challenging golf courses laid out by Greg Norman. Some might regard the Black course as second-in-line to the Gold layout, but don't be fooled into thinking that it's any less challenging. In fact quite the opposite. The Black also lays down a stern test.

The early stretches of this out-and-back layout are routed through natural wetland forest. The par-4 second hole presents as tight a drive as you'll face anywhere in southern Florida - from the back tees a nerve-jangling experience. The tight opening (and closing) holes are complemented by a more open but no less forgiving middle section.

Although more open, the mid-section brings water firmly into the picture, with several small lakes and ponds threatening alongside the fairways and dangerously defending many of the large and subtly sloping greens. Beware the slick run-offs around the greens that can transport your ball away from the putting surface and into a variety of swales and hollows, or worse.

As on the Gold course, the fairways are firm and fast, generally quite tight, and not bordered by conventional rough. Where the fairways run out, water, coquina shell waste areas, steep-lipped bunkers and deep vegetation lie in wait. There is a more natural, but tighter feel to much of the excellently maintained Black course.

Stay & Play at Tiburón Golf Club: Luxury on-site accommodation is available in The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort (see Where2Stay section below).

Did you know?

With two courses designed by Greg Norman (alias the Great White Shark), and a club logo that incorporates a shark's fin, it is no surprise to discover that "tiburón" is the Spanish word for shark. | Designated a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary by Audubon International, Tiburón is dedicated to protecting and enhancing its natural surroundings.

Tiburon, and especially the Gold course, is no stranger to hosting top level tournament golf. Both the men's PGA Tour (The Shootout) and women's LPGA Tour (Tour Championship) have been regular visitors here. The Shootout is a PGA Tour sanctioned event founded by Greg Norman in 1989 for the benefit of children's charities. (See our Tournaments section >by Venue >Tiburon).

The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
