As the decade of the 1970's came to a close, a small group of men, successful gentlemen from the worlds of business and sport all with a shared passion for the game of golf joined together to consider a common dream. They wanted to play golf in an "uncluttered" environment, free from conventional condominium and home lined fairways so prevalent in South Florida. The group was led by Delvin Miller, a horseman from Pennsylvania, known as the "Babe Ruth of Harness Racing" and an avid golfer. Delvin envisioned a South Florida club that offered championship golf and the ultimate in comfort in a collegial, unregimented atmosphere. To that end, Delvin enlisted the help of friend and real estate developer Charles MacCallum to locate a piece of property between Palm Beach and Miami suitable for a golf course. Charlie MacCallum looked for the better part of eight months until one day while viewing aerial photos from county records, he found what he was looking for. There it was, one of the few tracks of land large enough for a golf course and located conveniently bordering the Florida Turnpike, and Hillsboro Blvd. in Coconut Creek. Charlie learned that the property was held in Trust at the Sun Trust Bank in Fort Lauderdale-he also learned the property came with quite a story. Today, Adios is one of the finest clubs in South Florida holding true to the lore and tradition of club golf while building on its own traditions in excellence and camaraderie. Members and their guests are treated to a golf course that is maintained in "tournament ready conditions" on a daily basis and are welcomed by the magnificent British Colonial style clubhouse, unsurpassed in casual elegance and comfort. Members and sportsmen, of Adios are proud of their club and will enjoy celebrating the club's 25th Anniversary in memory of those whose vision and discriminating taste created by this extraordinarily special retreat. Delvin Miller, together with Wendy's founder Dave Thomas, Arnold Palmer, Yankee's Hall of Fame pitcher Whitey Ford, Boston Celtics Owner Harry Mangurian, Orvis Milner, Henry Martin and nine others formed the founding membership of Adios Golf Club.
