Miami Beach Golf Club
Originally opened in 1923, Miami Beach golf club was given an $11 million face-lift and reopened in 2002. The result is a championship layout masterfully designed by world-renowned architect Arthur Hills. The course sits quietly nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay, minutes from South Beach and scores of world-class hotels, restaurants.
When you first play this course, you may think it has been designed exclusively for long hitters. Don't worry -- many holes are dogleg designs that allow you to bite off a good portion of the distance with good tee shots. Greens are well bunkered and elevated.
Several beautiful and strategically placed lakes enhance the charm of the course.
The once tired and under-utilized Bayshore has now become the elegant and highly regarded Miami Beach Golf Club.

Lousy attitudes and rude personnel
Staff feel like everybody should be sucking up to them, guys at Pro shop rude and starter asking for a tip, terrible personnel altogether
Great course, good pace, incredibly fast and nice greens.
Non residents pay $120 vs. $80 residents, should be 80 for all. Great course
I was in Miami Beach for a conference and only had time to choose one course. I booked as a single and paid the “Visitor” rate of $120. That’s more than I usually pay for golf, but I don’t get to Miami much. I was paired with two locals and we breezed around the course in less than four hours. We hardly saw other golfers but they were out there. There were a couple hundred huge iguanas calling the course home which was fun to see. The greens rolled perfectly, but were rock hard. I highly recommend it to visitors looking for a good course.
Excellent Miami course
An excellent,challenging course that is very well maintained in South Miami Beach
Upscale SoFla golf with some teeth
Miami Beach is a popular destination for retirees and young people wanting to see and be seen in one of America's hippest locales. The demand for the area means everything is expensive, including the golf. Miami Beach Golf Club tops out at $225, which makes sense for the area but, in absolute terms, is a lot of money for golf that, while above-average, doesn't ascend to "great" or fabulous. But you're paying for location, and many people happily do just that.
The course is solid - Arthur Hills elevated many of the greens such that it can be hard to judge distance from the fairways. Things heat up on the back nine, with a strong stretch of holes at 15-17, before a curiously quiet par-4 18th at grade back near the clubhouse.
This is a tough layout but a lot of fun to play. Lots of water so hit your spots! The staff is awesome...every single one of them. Some of the greens are a little rough. The vast majority roll beautifully but some seemed to have some areas where they need to grow back a little....but other than that, really a great course and great experience.
Miami Beach golf at its finest!
Pretty course with fast greens, a lot of water holes and did I mention difficult greens!!?? Enjoy!
Good Florida Golf
Had a great time — I signed up as a single and played w three other golfers. We all had a great time. My only criticism was paying $120 as a nonresident — don’t get me wrong, the course, staff, and playing partners were great. $120 great? In July? At 9:30? Not sure $120 great.
I stayed in Miami Beach for a few days. I played this course twice. Each time was a pleasure. The greens, fairways and tee boxes were immaculate. It’s a wonderful golf course. Now I was able to play at the south Florida resident’s rate. If I had to pay the $200+ out of town rate my review would be the same except a much lower rate for “value.” This is a $70-$80 course not $200.
Called course to ask pave if play. Said a little over 4 hours. I walked off course on 12th hole 3 1/2 hours. Couldn’t take it any more. When I went to club house to ask for some compensation said no way. Disappointed. If they told me up front it was a 5 hour I wouldn’t have played that course.
Perfect shape despite hurricane, nice layout
The greens, fairways, rough, and traps were in perfect shape, as if there had been no hurricane. There were a few piles of brush/branches on the sides of some holes that had not yet been removed. Regarding the course layout, it has different types of holes and green complexes. Not a crazy long course, but several individual holes are long. Nice, interesting course.
I've played this course a lot with the Premier Card (basically a card for locals, you pay an upfront fee to get discounted round prices during the summer months on a number of area courses). This course is just $35 with the Premier Card, as opposed to $120 without. I wouldn't pay $120 to play it given cheaper alternatives of good quality, such as Jacaranda or Plantation Preserve. But I can see how someone trying to squeeze in a round while on vacation would pay that.
Fun course and great conditions
I really enjoyed the course and the layout of the course. I played in the middle of August and it is VERY hot and humid in South FL. When I called the course they told me they had coolers to use prior to me arriving at the course. When I arrived at the course and went to the snack bar to get a cooler I was told they did not have any coolers and they only thing they could do for me was to give me a bag of ice. A bag of ice lasts for only a few minutes when it is 94 degrees outside with a heat index of 101. The saving grace of the day as far as heat and hydration was that the beverage cart was out and I was able to get drinks from the beverage cart. I did not like hitting from mats at the range. The course is in South Florida. Grass grows like crazy. you should not have to hit from rubber mats in the middle of summer in South Fl.
However, the course was in great condition and the greens were VERY good. The greens were smooth, fast and had very few ball marks. There were lots of iguanas around the course. I have never seen so many iguanas on a golf course as I did at Miami Beach Golf Club. I like iguanas and I enjoyed seeing them. I live in Atlanta and you do not see iguanas in Atlanta so that was fun and nice to see lots of iguanas. I would play the course again without question however, I would be prepared and have my own drinks and cooler since one is not available on the carts or for use from the snack bar.
Not going back
They made zero mention of the golf greens recently being aerated ...when mentioning it at the pro shop they just simply laughed and said "yeah we don't post that to inform anyone" .... $120 on a round when the greens are bunkers
Pace of play abysmal
Pace of play was 5:15 with a goal of 4:20. Despite conversation with course during play about the problem, golf course personnel were unresponsive. Given $120 price tag, I won't ever play there again.
