Granada Golf Course
Granada Golf Club is one of Miami's most popular nine-hole courses. Beginners enjoy it for good practice and more advanced golfers come for a quick round. It is player-friendly enough for all ages and skill levels. The spacious layout offers plenty of room for error. There is not any water on the golf course and only very few sand traps. The fairways are straight and generous but the greens have subtle undulations that present a few challenges. If you are a seasoned player seeking a formidable test, you won't find it with this course but you will find an enjoyable and fast round that offers excellent practice. The gentle layout makes it approachable but another reason playing at Granada G.C. is so appealing is the affordable price.

Nice 9 hole track
For being a municipal golf course, it is very well maintained, to be expected from Coral Gables I guess. This course is very scenic, lined up by gorgeous and ginormous Banyan trees. The greens are in excellent shape as are the fairways. There's a bit of St Augustine rough, which I'm not a fan of, but it didn't bother me here. Overall, the track is not overly challenging which is great for an amateur golfer like me. The only thing is that I wish this was an 18-hole course.
Open and Friendly course
In Granada, my son learned to play, my wife learned to play and many of my friends hone their games every week in Granada. In the center of Coral Gables, Granada is a nine hole beauty with wide fairways, undulating greens and firm fairways giving you a decent run on your drives. Most of the greens run from back to front but not all are too inclined, calculating the speed of the greens is crucial to make a birdie. We play there at least once a week and they have seasons memberships that pays for themselves. Friendly fairways and difficult greens make Granada a real challenge for a nine hole walk anytime.
Bang for you Buck
I play this course regularly during the week because of how close it is, and the deals it has for quarters. This course has been around for a while, but until recentily when the Biltmore took over, it wasnt much fun. Now, they keep the course much nicer given the traffic. Its also a great course to work on your game, and not get to frustrated, as there is no water, and its hard to lose a ball. Best 9 hole I have played at!
9 Hole Gem!
Thoroughly enjoyed playing this little course. It has a solid, sporty layout that features three Par 3's, three Par 4's and three Par 5's (although two of them play more like long Par 4's). It's in a beautiful setting and has a historic feel to it. It was on the short side (3,000 yards from the tips), has no water, minimal bunkering and the fairways were generous but never once did it feel like a "pitch and putt". Greens were small and contoured which called for a lot of short-game creativity. It was in really good condition. I enjoyed it so much, I looped it twice! Not everyday do you get to play a Donald Ross course for $20! Granada is truly a fun track!
