If you're among the fortunate few with a ticket to the big game on Feb. 4.-or even if you're just a die-hard fan in town for the tailgating-then pack your sticks. Miami is easily one of the most underrated golf towns in America, so take a tee time out during the festivities.

The Blue Monster has been hosting the PGA Tour since Jack Nicklaus' rookie season in 1962, and this year it is home to a World Golf Championship event. The game's best will see a refurbished Blue, with all 18 greens re-grassed, as well as a complete bunker renovation.
What hasn't changed is the nasty par-4 closing hole that wreaks havoc when the wind blows. There are also four other courses on site, with greens fees ranging from $225 to $250.
