The Links of Key Biscayne
Nice clubhouse area with tropical landscape & views towards the golf course and Biscayne Bay. The Links is a fabulous venue you can rent and host a corporate event, a wedding party or any celebration.
It is located very near the practice area with chipping and putting and some irons. A net protects the hitting area and keeps balls from going into one of the front 9 fairways.
