Good layout. Very good green complexes. Lots of water holes but mostly you have safe areas to play away. Must take a cart as the routing doesn't lend to walking. No yard markers and the GPS on the carts is spotty.

The course was right on the ocean with great views of the Miami landscape. The layout was fairly tight with lots of water throughout the course. The fairways and greens were in great condition. If you hit the ball straight, the course is fairly straightforward forward. If you hit erratic tee shots, you're in for a long day. I played twilight, so couldn't start until 2:00. We played in 4 hours, so pace of play was good, but it was getting dark at the end. At the end of the round, the bar and restaurant, we're closing. Grabbed a couple of bars and sat in a beautiful outdoor seating area viewing the sunset. I would definitely recommend this course to friends.

Great course and conditions. Golf staff very knowledgeable and helpful. Our caddy, Preston, was tremendous. Pace of play a bit slow, got clogged up a bit. Bad timing on our part. Good pro shop. Average restaurant. Can't beat the golf, though.

I was in the area and wanted to play a nice course while I had the chance. I had read numerous reviews before booking and this seemed to fit the price and calibre I was looking to play. We got there early to grab some lunch. Food was decent, but not great. Pro shop staff was friendly. Usually, at a nice course like this was supposed to be, range balls are supplied for free. Not at this one. I can handle paying for the range, so that's not the issue. I just think it should be part of the package at a nice course.

Moving onto the course. It was a great layout. Not particularly difficult compared to other nice courses I've played. The course rating and slope seemed high, even though I know they do it the same for every course. The course conditions were ok for the winter. I'm guessing summer would be really nice. We saw the beverage cart twice throughout the round, but decided we'd stop in the clubhouse in between nines. It took us ten minutes to get two sodas and there were four people working and two customers. We were going to get a hot dog or some type of food, but we were already going to be way behind schedule by the time we got to the 10th tee. As expected, the group behind us was now waiting on the 10th tee for us to arrive. The caddie helping the pair we were playing with told us we'd need to hurry our game a little to get back in position. All because we wanted to do a routine clubhouse stop.

I would recommend this course, but never for the normal green fees. Luckily, GolfNow had a Hot Deal for $100, so it was much cheaper and reasonable based on area prices during the winter.

We book a tee time at 10h but nobody said that there is a private competition before

We spend 5h35 to play 18 holes with the cart

It s not fair for the players who pay full fare

One of our friend was sick and golf now doesn't want to refund my money so just book your tee time before going to golf because you will never know what s happen

With wind over 35 mph and 53 F ( in Miami) it was a tough day out there, however course layout and maintenance were excellent. Personnel is friendly.

This is a course to be played when you are at the top of your game...if not, it can be frustrating.

This place was so cool. Felt like I was in the Bahamas while playing a great course. Great layout, great par threes. Can't wait to come back. Lots of wild life. Saw crocodile on #4. Biggest iguanas ever. Sweet view of Miami from 17-18. Favorite of the five courses I played while in area. Best value for the money too. Even though pricey. Totally worth it.

This course offers a military discount. The staff from the Pro Shop to the maintenance people was outstanding. The course although long is receptive to good shots, the greens have undulations but are fair. Most greens are well protected by bunkers.

Great /challenging course. I arrived just before my team time and got right out on the course. Folks in the club house and the starter were very nice.

Great value for the money when compared to Trump's Blue Monster at three times the cost and Great White. Twice the price.

Staff out on the course could have been more courteous. Still a great time all things considered. I will definitely play here again.

The greens are very good with fairways in OK conditions. The layouts are good with few very long holes and a lot of doglegs. The course is at the Biscayne Bay so some holes are quiet
smelly. Also, there are many mosquitoes in the summer so it may be a good idea to spray some bug repellent first. Overall, the course is good and fun to play but it's way over priced.

The course it's self was In prestige condition green were great but extremely fast fairways also in great condition they're is a variety of hole styles this is the type of course that no matter how many times you play it it is almost impossible to remember the all the turns hill mangroves and bunkers in play I rated the course a 4 simply do to the fact that most times you come play here there's gonna be massive wind and a lot of times do to the ocean that wind will be in your face.

Most memorable hole was a 155yd par 3 that really plays like a 260 yd par 3 I hit a 3 wood into the wind and barely made it over the water...... Good luck play good and enjoy the views
