AVENTURA, Fla. – To complement its award-winning championship courses, The Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort & Club is proud to announce a partnership with the prestigious ESPN Golf Schools. This joint venture, presented by American Express, will provide resort guests and members with a number of world-class instructional programs, private instruction and personalized corporate events.
“The partnership between The Fairmont Turnberry Isle and ESPN Golf Schools will greatly enhance the golf instructional program offered to our members and resort guests,” said Bob Coman, director of golf. “As a result of this relationship, more people will be enticed to utilize our exceptional golf facilities, which recently received a $45 million makeover from Hall of Famer Raymond Floyd. I firmly believe it’ll only take one experience to hook our visitors.”
