First time playing in Miami. Picked this Country Club on Biscayne Blvd (Hwy 1), which was easy to find. Course conditions were good, greens pretty fast, but layout was not spectacular. I was teamed up with two other single players and we had fun despite the heavy afternoon thunderstorm.

The fairways need dethatching/verticutting badly. Any iron shot into the grain will result in a fat beaver pelt laid over the ball. The greens are great and overall they are making an effort to upgrade the course

Fun old school Florida course. Has some elevation changes which is a nice feature for courses in the area. Layout was good, but the conditioning was truly outstanding. Some of the nicest greens I have ever putted. Even better than Doral. They were smooth, true and very fast. A joy to experience. The staff was also very accommodating and friendly. I highly recommend Miami Shores!

My favorite hole was #13, a really fun Par 5.

Note: regardless of the pin position, play to the middle of the green. They are small and elevated, so even if you are just a fraction off with your approach you will be faced with a testy shot. And when dealing with greens this fast, you are always best to play it safe.

A nice traditional Miami course and club. Good practice facilities, and a friendly staff. The course is a very traditional Florida track, plays fair from tee to green, and the greens were in excellent shape (fast and true). The pace-of-play on the front side was close to unbearable; at the time I thought this might be a six-hour round. Apparently, many local players (and I did observe many as somewhat elderly) left after nine. Playing the back nine was a VERY nice golf experience.

I went back to the driving range for a little more practice and tuning-up. Overlooking the range is the club restaurant. Beautiful floor to ceiling windows. I just wish I had more time .

Great old school course with immaculate greens. Off the tee the course is pretty forgiving with no OB/houses on course. Crowned greens so difficult holding balls on the green (always play front edge FYI) but once you are there let the fun begin. Beautiful trees and scenery, 2 trains passed during the round. Def recommend to anyone especially with a hot deal. Mk.

I'm from CA and decided to play this course in the area. Initial thoughts were this was definitely an old county club layout which I like but ran poorly. I called previous day to ask about clubs they rent and was told brand new Taylor made and they would have a stiff steel set. Well when I showed up, clubs were definitely not new and did not offer what was promised. Ended up playing with a RBZ Graphite Reg Set which was disappointing since I called. When talking to staff, most seem uninterested players coming to golf and just didn't have that approachable friendly vibe. Overall, I'd recommend the club with your own clubs and don't expect the extra frills that make you appreciate certain clubs and staff members.

The greens at this course are on the small side and almost always elevated. They are hard to hold unless the approach shot has a lot of loft, which isn't always easy playing from the blues if you aren't a really long driver. The rough is thicker than at most courses so there is a definite penalty for missing the fairway. I just wish there were more water hazards on the course to make it a little more challenging. Love the old Florida trees flanking many of the fairways

The course is nice although the layout is cumbersome to say the least. Finding the next tee is often times a task in itself.

We happened to have a foursome ahead of us, one of which was a terrible beginner taking several mulligans in each tee. Not funny
