AVENTURA, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- Supporting our country's troops can be as basic or involved as one wishes. From sporting a yellow ribbon on the car, to signing up for the National Guard, the options are as diverse as the military itself. And now, thanks to the Special Operations Golf Tournament of South Florida held this May 18 at the Turnberry Isle Miami, Autograph Collection, it can also be downright fun.
As an award-winning luxury golf resort in South Florida, Turnberry Isle Miami lends an air of exclusivity to this worthy cause hosted by the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Its two Raymond Floyd-designed championship courses have been recognized by Golf Digest, Golfweek and GOLF Magazine as offering exceptional play.
And golfers participating in the tournament will have every opportunity to experience the courses' range of features. The tournament includes a golf clinic sponsored by the resort, lunch sponsored by Shorty's BBQ, golfer's gifts and a sumptuous awards dinner prepared by Turnberry Isle Miami's renowned chefs.
But golf aficionados may have a hard time leaving the tropical courses behind, even for such tempting activities. This 5-star hotel in Aventura unfolds along 300 acres of lush property between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, and the inviting landscape is reflected in every inch of the two courses. Elevation changes, contoured fairways, striking (and strategic) water features and undulating greens are just some of the features that make this an acclaimed golf resort near Miami.
Other elements enhancing that reputation have to do with the hotel itself. Guests arriving for the tournament and staying on property will be treated to the sort of service and amenities that define luxury. A private beach club, a world-class spa and cuisine prepared within Celebrity Chef Michael Mina's Bourbon Steak restaurant are just a few of the pleasures afforded by this Mediterranean-inspired destination. And if guests would rather just unwind after a day on the course, they can always drink in the views from their private balconies and relax.
As one of the more compelling North Miami hotel deals, the Special Operations Golf Tournament of South Florida will directly benefit the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. The Foundation enjoys a low overhead, which means 94.5 percent of all funds go directly to its programs, which provide funding for post-secondary education to the surviving children of special-operations troops killed in the line of duty. The organization enjoys a wide range of support, with corporations like The Trump Organization, Whole Foods Market, JetBlue and SunTrust Bank all pledging their support to this memorable -- and profoundly meaningful -- event.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
