Not Many Choices in Dade County

Public courses in Miami hard to find. Either expensive or poor quality. This one falls under poor quality but still charged $50 on a Saturday after 11:00. Greens were decent except for 2 that were unplayable (had to play automatic 2 putt on these they were so bad). Fairways a combination of pressed weeds and a little grass. Very thin and hard to get under the ball. Rough was inconsistent and a combination of weeds and gnarly grass. Driving range closed so no warm up except for a very small putting green that is almost impossible to chip around.

Closed for month - no improvement - damaged Greens

Most greens are damaged. Evident hurricane damages. Greens are in trouble. Only the west got infected, if you can believe it.

Layout re-routed, front and back nine switched, but the proshop and starter neglect to advise.

Walking allowed out of peek hours.

Nothing to write home about.

I have played this course a few times now over this past year, and over all it is an all right course. The fairways are a bit over grown everytime i play and the greens look like they go neglected for a few days a week. The layout of the course does present its challenges, but by far the most challenging part of this course are the neighborhood kids around this golf course. Oe more then one occasion there are birthday parties in the backyards of these houses backed up to the tee boxes with loud distracting music or kids running out on the course in the middle of a hole. So while this course is pretty fair for the price of golfnow.com I wouldnt recommend this to become a staple of a golf routine nor would I recommned anyone travels very far to play this course.

Godd course but....

I liked the layout of the course and it was challenging enough. What I didn't like was the condition of the greens. There were a lot of bare and deseased spots on each green which had a direct affect on the roll of the puts. The fairways were in decent shape especially after the 4 inches of rain the day before. I think if they would lower the price by $10 - $20 during the summer months it would be worth playing again.

A Great Course for Intermediate to Advanced Golfers

The course requires planning. There are plenty of Bunkers and Water Hazards to catch your ball if you are too aggressive. It's a lot easier to play from the fairway than the rough so, keeping you ball in the short grass will definitely make for a more enjoyable round. I look forward to playing it again soon.

Condition

Course condition was a little below average. Only a handful of greens is great shape. 1st green had a hole filled in with sand extra from the regular sand traps. Handful of tee box in great shape. Fairways was rough in multiple location.

Great course

Really challenging, tight fairways, lots of water, makes you really think of shot selection. Course is in great condition, well manicured fairways and bunkers. Greens are perfect condition except for a few holes.

West Course is a good round

Not for the timid golfer. Challenging forced carries, strategically placed bunkers, and great site lines.

Windy day

The East course is in good condition. The greens are in excellent shape and are very fast. It is not a long course, but the very high winds made the course much more difficult. Some of the holes had a two or three club wind in our face. This is a good course for a good price in Miami.

Great greens and fast pace of play

Weekday play was excellent. We finished in 3 1/2 hrs. The greens were in great shape with a few holes where there was spotty repair underway. The sand traps were great (nice soft sand) or poor (thin rock hard sand). For the price, this was an excellent deal. Fairway were fine as were the tee boxes. Great fun if you are conveniently located near this course.

Greens nice Fairways poor

The conditions of the fairway were fair at best. Tee boxes were void of grass in some places. The greens were in good shape and easy to put. The roll was true on the greens. Practice greens were in rough shape it sand and rough spots everywhere.

CC of miami - east 3/18/14

This part 70 course has it's challenges. Played from gold tees which is still <6K yds so not that long. It is a mature public course in decent/acceptable, though not by any means, meticulous condition and the layout is good. Some of the greens are on the smaller side which makes it more difficult and some green areas have nice undulations (not just the green itself but surrounding area). The greens overall were in good/somewhat fast condition. All in all good fun for the price. Couldn't have asked for better pace of play as played as a twosome and no one in front nor in back of us. I shot 84 just above my handicap if that's any indication of the "fairness" of the course. I absolutely recommend the scrumptious chicken wings for apr├Ęs-golf in the dining room
