Compton was born in Miami in 1979 and is a true South Florida guy, a lifelong Miami Dolphins fan now living in Coral Gables. He worked his way up to golf’s highest level in large part while honing his game around Miami courses, and offered a few suggestions to visitors.
Melreese Country Club/International Links Miami—Adjacent to Miami International Airport, Compton touted this course as a spot to hit a few balls during a layoff.
Biltmore Hotel—The course at this iconic Coral Gables property is a 1925 original Donald Ross design; Walter Hagen, Gene Sarazen and Babe Ruth played there.
Miami Beach Golf Club—Built in 1923, the property got a complete renovation a decade ago and now holds its own among the best in this crowded golf market.
