To be eligible for the hotel’s Unlimited Golf & Tennis Offer, travelers must book and visit by December 15, 2010.
“Those who appreciate the history and tradition of golf and tennis will be equally impressed by the world-class facilities at Fisher Island Hotel & Resort,” said Hotel Director David Smiley.  “This is a special invitation and a unique experience, allowing hotel guests – at no cost to them – access to facilities that are typically only available to our residents and Club members.”

Fisher Island’s Championship Golf Course, The Links, is a spectacular seaside spot.  Nestled between the sparkling blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay, The Links combines spectacular views with challenging golf in a tropical setting. A par-35 nine-hole course designed by P. B. Dye, The Links includes a double-ended driving range, clubhouse, pro shop, and the Golf Grill restaurant with a terrace for casual dining.

Golfers tee-off amidst panoramic views of Miami’s skyline.  Each hole on the well-manicured course is distinctive, featuring several play-around sculpted Scottish bunkers, lagoons and lakes. One of the most fascinating holes is the 390-yard, par-4 seventh that plays along Miami’s shipping channel, where yachts and cruise ships sail.  Complementing the course is a two-tiered driving range with a putting green, practice sand bunkers and a teaching area that is home to a talented staff of teaching professionals. The Golf Shop carries a wide array of golf related apparel and equipment, including the latest collections from major brand names and the most innovative equipment from Titleist, Ping, Callaway, Taylor-Made and others.  The Links also provides a professional staff available seven days a week for individual lessons, playing lessons or group clinics.

Fisher Island’s Grand Slam Tennis Center is designed for Pros and amateurs alike who have the unique choice of 18 courts and three distinctive playing surfaces: 14 clay, 2 hard, 2 grass. This famed Tennis Center has hosted the world’s top players during Miami’s annual Nasdaq 100 Championship, including Pete Sampras, Michael Chang, Jim Courier, Andre Agassi, Andy Roddick and Steffi Graf. Wimbledon competitors also have been seen practicing on the Island’s grass courts prior to their departure to London, some of whom even call Fisher Island home.  A fully stocked pro shop featuring the latest in tennis fashion and equipment is a welcome addition to the facilities themselves.  Private lessons are available upon request.
