The Redland Golf and Country Club is located in the unincorporated community of Redland near the City of Homestead in Dade County. In the 1940s, when Joe L. Burton, a Homestead department store owner (who had never had a golf club in his hand) started to raise money for an 18-hole championship golf course in the Redland District, many said it couldn’t be done. But Burton, along with a handful of men, raised $40,000 in four months by selling memberships at $100 each. In 1947, the club retained the services of golf course architect Red Lawrence, to design an 18-hole course, and A.W. Lindgren Land Clearing Company was contracted to clear the property. Only nine holes were built at that time. It would be two decades before the second nine holes were built in the early 1960s.
The Redland Golf and Country Club includes an 18-hole, par-72 golf course featuring four sets of tees playing from 5,600 to 6,600 yards. This medium-length layout provides a fun but challenging golfing experience.
