Fairways and Greens were in great shape. Tee boxes were a bit chewed up. Starters seamed to be having a bad day and were not very friendly or forth coming with information. Did not see a cart girl for the entire 5+ hour round. Course has a some challenges and is a fun layout. Would chalk it up to just one of those days but with so many other great courses in south Fl. I don't see myself going back any time soon.

Good value for the money. Nice layout and somewhat challenging course. Great for high to medium handicap player. Friendly staff but the only bad experience came to the food at the clubhouse...OMG horrible Safe yourself some. Obey and stomach aches and bring your own food or wait til after you are finished.

Great course, but there needs to be Marshal to help speed of play. Very frustrating. Course signing could use some improvements, especially confusing for first timers. Greens are a challenge-generally small and very few are level. Well maintained. Sand traps could use another layer of sand. Pro shop staff was very friendly. Bar service was atrocious. So bad I left without ordering!

Nice course to start our trip. Great value for money and course was in reasonable condition. Staff were friendly and helpful. Good practice facilities (floodlit) and a great place to have a post round pint. Very enjoyable and would play again as a 'value for money' round.

The last time I played Miami Shores I was a 12 years old. Since the 1970's, this course has been dug up and re-designed twice. Everywhere you go on this course you'll find lush fairways and lavish greens that are both challenging and very fair. You won't find a better bang for your buck anywhere else in South Florida!

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 .
