Medalist Golf Club was originally designed by Pete Dye and Greg Norman in 1995, and hosted that year’s Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf duel. The club is home to over 20 touring professionals including Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson.
In 2015, Bobby Weed Golf Design was engaged to conduct a wall-to-wall “retro-vation” that would bring back the style and polish of Dye’s innovative, low-profile layout.
In 2020, “The Match: Champions for Charity” was held at Medalist featuring Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning versus Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady. Nearly six million people tuned into this match play event. At the time, it was the most watched cable golf event in history.

After the club’s inception in 1995, many alterations were made over the years that transitioned Medalist away from Dye’s original design. With Dye’s blessing, his protégé Bobby Weed and Chris Monti embarked on a path to re-establish Dye’s vision for the South Florida layout surrounded by natural wetlands.
BWGD began the design process by overlaying the original golf course onto what was on the ground in 2015. It was discovered that much of the original strategy, particularly the angles, bunkering and green elevations had been significantly altered. The findings from this study led to the development of the core principles of the restoration.
Following Bobby Weed Golf Design successfully restoration, Medalist can provide year-round, tournament-caliber playing conditions. These elite conditions and recaptured Dye strategy – who is notorious for challenging the best players in the world – have returned Medalist to being a top echelon name in golf.
