Popular among locals, the course at Killian Greens Golf Club is affordable and challenging. The golf course is quite narrow and built on flat terrain, making it easy to walk. Although there is little elevation change, the greens are sloped and firm. The fairways are narrow and there are sand bunkers situated throughout the course. Canals and lakes create water hazards that come into play on 14 holes. The course features three sets of tees to adapt the game to a variety of different skill levels and abilities. Killian Green Golf Club also boasts a special learning program for kids on their practice course.

The greens and fairways are in very poor condition particularly on the front nine. Even at $30 for 18 holes, I did not feel that this was a good value given the very poor condition of the course.

The fairways and greens are in terrible condition with the exception of maybe 3 greens. They have a bad fungal problem on the greens and the fairways are either hard clay or overgrown weeds. Although they have a nice new restaurant, not once did a beverage cart come around the course on a Saturday. They also do not have any restrooms on the course. I was supposed to play a charity tournament here in 2 weeks but I unfortunately have decided not to play it because the conditions are just too poor.

Supposedly the greens were infected by some sort of algae that rotted them. Pretty much made 50% of them unputtable. Other than that it’s a fun course to play with several drivable par 4s. And short dog leg par 5s.

Front 9 challenging with a lot of water Hazard but wide fairways; tees and greens in good condition-greens tendency slow. Back 9 tighter with average fairways-tees and greens average to good conditions but greens still slow. Made my round in less than 3 hours without Packing. Rented Clubs (30 bugs) and liked them-no Fairwoods and ended 6 Iron...

The staff was friendly and the restaurant they built is nice but the course is the absolute worst in Miami. If you're trying to save a few dollars and pkay $40 on a weekend it's not worth it the course sucks. You're better off staying home and playing with yourself.

Sorry but the course resembled an uncared for horse pasture. Greens had not been fertilized for years. Big brown patches with no grass. $5 would be to much to pay for this pathetic course. I’m surprised they are allowed to advertise on golf now.

Not the best Golf course you will ever play. I shot round in under three hours as a single. Course was pretty empty. The fairways are a bit rough, but otherwise playable. The holes are quirky and quite interesting with some narrow fairways. Greens were ok. Long wayward hitters will struggle. The $35 rate was no bargain. There are better value places to be found on Golfnow. I will play here again but not on my regular Miami loop. Worth playing to check it out if in the Miami area.

This course was a mixed bag. Some of the greens had large rough patches and some were fantastic. Most of the fairways were really bumpy, and full of weeds and bare spots. But the most annoying thing was the fact that the very nice girl driving the beverage cart did not have any good snacks. Only granola bars and nuts. No chips or candy or real food, like sandwiches. Also, there is no starter, so once you pay your greens fee, it’s first come, first teeing off. Which is not a bad thing.

I booked a deal on GolfNow for $28. I don’t think I would pay more to play on this course. The fairways are starting to get overtaken by weeds. Some of the greens were in bad condition and some were in decent condition. I would rank this course below Micosukee. It is a good course for beginners and intermediate players. The pace of play was amazing. I played as a single and finished in less than 3 hours. Most holes have housing next to them, so if you’re slice or hook a lot beware. The greens are grainy and roll slow so don’t be afraid to give your putts extra oomph.

I play Killian frequently as it is very close to my home. The layout is very good, though I wish they would reverse the nines as the first four holes are the toughest on the course. I love that you can walk and the conditions are improving slowly but surely. They have sand in the traps, the greens are mostly good, and I saw that they finally are fixing some of the bad tee boxes. A little more work and this could be a very nice course.

I have played this course for many years and it continues to be the best value play in Miami. It is one of the last courses privately owned by locals whom are great and whom I will happily continue to support.

It is a great place to regularly practice and hone your skills. The tournaments they have are fun and it is very easy to get to and to get tee times.

The price can't be beat which helps get me more rounds in and improve my game! Also the restaurant in the pro shop is delicious.
