Travelers Championship

TPC River Highlands



La Gorce Country Club

Miami Beach, FL Private

Overview

La Gorce was among the first wave of golf courses built in Southeast Florida during the 1920s. Like neighbors Indian Creek and Normandy Shores, it and its surrounding real estate development were created with material dredged from its site on Biscayne Bay, a major engineering endeavor at the time. The club turned the course over to the city following World War II, and in the 1950s Robert Trent Jones initiated a major renovation to bring it in line with modern tastes and demands. The course has continued to evolve and change. Jack Nicklaus remodeled the course in the 1990s, and it continues to make improvements going forward.
