Rating 71.9
Type Public
Ideally situated between the vibrant Miami nightlife and laid back atmosphere of the Florida Keys, Keys Gate Golf Club offers the best of south Florida golf. The lush landscape is covered in lakes and ponds that come into play on nearly every hole. Jut a short drive from the coast, the course enjoys warm ocean breezes. Overall the golf course is wide-open but there are swaying palms scattered throughout providing some challenges but mostly scenery. The layout features small greens and manicured fairways. There are also a few treacherously placed bunkers along the fairways and greensides. Keys Gate has garnered a large following since it offers a good value. Golfers from as farm south as Marathon Key have been known to come up for a round.

Good Bye Keys Gate

I really loved playing this course, never too busy. I guess that's the reason why they closed their doors. Yes, that's right Keys Gate closed their doors effective 9 October 2014. I wish someone buy this course and re-open it. I am a begginer player and this course was perfect for me. The course definitely needed some work but helped me improve my game. Good Bye Keys Gate.

Good Value

The Golf Now Hot Deal made the green fees very affordable. Even though the condition of the course was not the best , the facility is nice and the price was right!

Get what you pay off

Fairways and tees mostly green. Greens were dry and burnt but still playable. Course needs some better maintenance. If your golfing in the summer take MOSQUITO SPRAY, and don't hit your ball near or under the banyan trees. I got swarmed in less than 30 seconds.

Muck and Mosquito infested

Back 9 holes are underwater not possible to play and the entire course is infested with thousands of mosquitoes. Not a very pleasant place to play 18 holes. Spend a little more and go elsewhere.

the mosquitos won!!

First, nobody told us, at the club house, that we could not play the first 9 holes, the course was under maintenance. So we went to hole number 10, and start, trying to play those back 9 twice. But we lost at the first hole!! The mosquitos were the big winners!!! Impossible to play without being attack by hundreds of them! This golf course is closed to the everglades. So, don't even try to play during the summer. And not sure about winter!! Good luck!

rained out but happy

i was rained out about 6 holes in , but that was okay, the course was not well kept; the grass was very high and the greens were not in good shape. unfortunate because it was a nice course a few years back but not anymore.

Average

The course was really muddy. The tee boxes and greens were average. A couple of greens looked like they were burned. The roughs were in really bad shape, a minimum of 4 inches in most areas and as much as 6 or more in others. If you hit your ball in the rough say goodbye. I lost three myself. I got a hot deal from golfnow.com and it cost me 15 bucks if I paid full price I would have been a bit upset. I will play this course again when it has dried up. The staff was great and friendly and ready to go beyond to help with any questions or problems you might have have.

assessor

the course was in poor condition. Has a very nice layout, but the greens, fairways and tee boxes need some TLC. Could be a beautiful and challenging course with better grass on the tees and greens and fairways.

Horrible coarse

Every single green minus two were awful, the entire coarse was awful, I would lose my ball in the fairway because the grass was too high ON THE FAIRWAY... Let alone off the fairway nearly impossible to play, I wouldn't come back even if it was free ..
