Golf & Tradition Since 1971

Little Turtle was named after the Miami Native American leader, Chief Mishikinakwa, “Little Turtle.” The Club’s founders believed Chief Little Turtle embodied ideals worth emulating and honoring. The original partners were Connecticut General Ins Co., W. Lyman Case Co., and M I Builders. The ownership group retained the finest professionals in the country to design the clubhouse and community. Schwab and Twitty of West Palm Beach, Florida designed the clubhouse, and of course Pete Dye was retained to design and build the golf course.
