I was pleasantly surprised by Duran when I played it in late March in the Space Coast Amateur, a local tournament. The course doesn't look overly complicated from photos, but the area's drought conditions over the late winter had it playing nice and firm and fast, with everything in good shape. The greens have some interesting contours, with the boldest being the large "Punchbowl" 7th green. I enjoyed architect Chip Powell's choice to echo the CB Macdonald/Seth Raynor template holes with certain features. They elevate Duran above the designation of "just another Florida golf course." Worth playing if you are in the area.

I play Duran at least once a month and it always delivers. The course is always in very good condition and the greens are beautiful and true. Large, wide fairways abound but steer it offline and trouble lurks in the form of deep bunkers and watery graves. Easily one of the best courses in the county, if you are from out of the area and visiting the Melbourne area make sure you put Duran on your list of must-plays.

Enjoyed the course, nice staff, true rolling greens that had decent speed, but were not too fast. Enjoyed most everything about the course...Greens a tad hard, but not enough to ruin any good shots.....very good course.

Very challenging greens with severe undulations on many holes. Very well maintained fairways, rough, green side, and greens. Errant tee shots are penalized but the fairways are amenable to only slightly misdirected shots. The staff is always pleasant and curtious. The driving range is outstanding. Hitting balls there prior to the round was more than pleasing. It is a fairly new course, clubhouse, practice facility, etc. Therefore everything feels fresh and clean. If you haven't yet give The Duran Golf Club a swing or two.

Although the 2 men we were paired up with were a bit condescending and silently critical as I struggled with my game for the front nine I still enjoyed playing the course.<br/> We split up on back and it was truly a much more pleasant afternoon. We played in less than 4 hours. Went into 19th hole for a beverage after and your bar maid was one of the most pleasant woman we have encountered . Another plus for the Duran.<br/> Hopefully we will get to play there again

The fairways are quite wide and forgiving. It may seem easy but be prepared for fast rolling undulated<br/> greens. Some fairway areas were marginal ,from all the rain.I will definetly play this course again!

Course in very good shape (a few low spots in fairways were still wet from amazing amount of rain lately...not the courses fault, and they are dealing with it fine). Greens very good shape and lightning fast. Got a last minute hot deal and that made it great bang for the buck. Probably the best course in Brevard county.

The course is convenient when you want to get out quick, walk and enjoy some simple golf. It is short, probably need no more than an 8 iron. Good value, only need a pull cart, although I did see a couple of golf carts rolling through. Good value, only takes about 1-2 hours to play, good challenge for chipping and putting.

Nothing more than a pitch and putt. Don't waste your time unless you are looking for nothing but practice time. If you have the time play the full course which looks to be be very nice.
