  History

Deering Bay Yacht & Country Club sits on land that is as rich in history as in flora and fauna, previously being used as a U.S. Army pilot training base and airfield during World War I.

Deering Bay launched in 1991, named after Charles and James Deering, the chairman and vice president of International Harvester, who built two famous waterfront mansions in Miami in the early 1900s.

In early 1993, Former President George H.W. Bush, his son Jeb, Arnold Palmer and former Deering Bay resident and Yankee Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio played a round of golf together in celebration of the completion of Hurricane Andrew repairs to the golf course.

Arnold Palmer returned to play Deering Bay in late 2007 after successful completion of a regrassing and renovation project by his famed design team.
