The Original Course in the turfvalley hotel

The Original Course

As a golfer, if you prefer a traditional style golf course, then this is your ideal playground. The Original Course plays through the heart of Turf Valley Resort's scenic surroundings. Strategically placed bunkers and mature trees keep players honest and reward good shots.

Course Rating and Slope:

Blue 73.1 / 134
White 71.3 / 130
Gold 69.6 / 124
Red 72.1 / 134

The Hialeah Course at turfvalley hotel in USA

The Hialeah Course

Considered as a shotmaker's course, Hialeah winds its way through the woods and over hills. Its tight, tree-lined fairways place a premium on accuracy off the tee. There are many creeks to swallow miss-hits and dramatic elevation changes to force creative play. The resident Golf Pro's favorite holes are 13, 15, and 17.

Course Rating and Slope

Blue 72.0 / 138
White 70.6 / 128
Gold 68.0 / 124
Red 71.9 / 129

Short Game Practice

Short Game Practice Area

A newly installed short game practice area duplicates almost any approach shot on Turf Valley Resort's two 36-hole golf courses. The practice area features two bunkers, one with a lower face and one with a higher face, comparable to Hialeah and Original Golf Course.

The large fairway, maintained at greens height, provides a shot selection of uphill, downhill and an even level approach into the green.

Golf Course Renovation

Turf Valley's Original and Hialeah golf courses completed a full renovation in May 2022. Both courses are open to members and resort guests. 

As a "Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary" we focus our environmental efforts on planting native trees, shrubs and grasses and reducing water consumption with the latest irrigation and drainage systems.

Renovation Highlights

  • Tee Boxes - Each tee box has been re-constructed and seeded and some were elevated or lowered.
  • Cart Paths - Portions of the cart paths were replaced for a consistent appearance and smoother ride.
  • Greens: The greens underwent a re-grassing of the surfaces and adjustments to the perimeters.
  • Sand Bunkers: All bunkers were reconstructed using the Better Billy Bunker drainage system.
