Five championship courses stretch out for over 34,000 yards of premier golfing. Try your hand on the Gold course, recently redesigned by PGA Tour legend Raymond Floyd to follow a traditional Florida layout, incorporating gently contoured greens, strategic bunkering and water surrounding 16 holes. Or test your skills on the Red Course. This course is often the site of corporate tournaments due to its promise of a fair test of golf at any level of play. Aviation Week will also offer discounted rates to play the world famous Blue and White Courses prior to or after the tournament.
Following the golf there will be a cocktail reception along with contest awards and raffle prizes. Handicaps are mandatory for pairings. Separate fee and registration are required. Fee includes greens fees, driving range, putting and box lunch. Rental clubs and shoes are available at the player’s expense. Transportation will not be provided.

The Historic Alfred I DuPont Building
The Historic Alfred I DuPont Building is Miami’s only Art Deco skyscraper and a representation of Depression Moderne Architecture. Opened on Christmas Day, 1939, the Building was designed an Historic Landmark in 1992 and became a Dade Heritage Trust Inductee in 1999. The Venue’s details – bas relief elevator doors, wall-to-wall marble floors, hand painted Cypress wood ceilings features Seminole Indian motifs and local flora and fauna, detailed scroll work and intricately detailed brass gates and grates earned it a spot on numerous “Miami’s Best” lists. A former bank headquarters, it was the first skyscraper constructed in Miami after the completion of the Dade County Courthouse in 1928, signaling the city’s economic recovery from the Great Depression – complete with teller windows and two bank vaults, the interior was restored in 2002. The building was dubbed the “U.S.S. Neversink” during WWII when it served as Fleet Headquarters for the 7th Naval District.
Separate registration is required.
