Very poor conditions. Very unfortunate how they allowed this course to get in such a bad shape. Bad tee boxes, bad fairwyas, slow and bumpy greens. Even carts are a mess. Will not play here again unless they make dramatic changes.

Overall had a good experience. The course was in good shape and the price in good for this time of year. They only let you use the mats on the range and they were in really bad shape. Took me half and hour to clean the stains the left on my clubs.

Ranger staff? Never seen a ranger pass the first tee box... The starter does a great job, excellent in my opinion... I never seen any Ranger on the course speeding up players on an Easter egg hunt on every hole.

Lazaro1888783,

Thank you for your review of Shula's Golf Club. We are glad that you enjoyed the pace of the greens. The pace of play was a bit slow in the afternoons during the holidays. The pace is much better if you play earlier in the day. We will keep re-training our ranger staff to improve pace of play. We hope to see you soon.

Sincerely,

Shula's Golf Club

Thank you for your review of Shula's Golf Club. We have recently repaired the entire concrete cart path on hole #8 in December. We will be repairing portions of cart paths this week with crushed rock/sand on the artificially surfaced roads. We hope to see you again.

SoniaV,

Thank you for your review of Shula's Golf Club. We periodically offer internet specials that cost less than the price to rent clubs. It appears that you were able to take advantage of one of those specials. If you stay in our hotel, we offer golf, rental clubs, shoes, and balls for one low price of $75. We hope to see you on your next visit to Miami.

Sincerely,

Shula's Golf Club

Great value for the money! Booked on golf now for 35. And well worth the money. Greens were in great shape, that rolled true.Fairways could have been cleaner, but still a great value. I did get behind 2 slower groups and caught them on 9, the pro shop sent someone out to me and told me to skip to 12 and play the others after. What great service! In its time this was a premiere club. Worth playing and heard the steak is fantastic!
